I am an experienced trombonist located in Raleigh, NC. I have established an exceptional playing career spanning from Middle and High School, having won chairs in multiple All-District honor bands, to performing with numerous ensembles spanning genres such as classical, jazz, and funk. Currently, I actively perform with the Greensboro Concert Band, Tobacco Road Trombones, and the Kings of Swing Jazz Orchestra. I have also previously performed with the Raleigh Civic Symphony, New South Funk Band, and assisted the Green Street Baptist Church orchestra and jazz band for special performances. As a teacher my aim is to help students gain mastery in the five fundamental categories, Tone, Intonation, Slide Technique, Articulation, and Music, required to become an exceptional player.
