Teaching since:

I am a freelance trombonist located in Greensboro, NC. I have established an exceptional playing career from having won chairs in multiple Honor bands, to performing with a variety of ensembles spanning the genres of classical, jazz, and funk. Currently, I actively perform with the Greensboro Concert Band, Greensboro Trombone Ensemble, the Kings of Swing Jazz Orchestra, the North Carolina Film Orchestra, and have the Green Street Baptist Church orchestra and jazz band. As a teacher my aim is to help students master technique and gain a new level of understanding in their approach to trombone performance.
