B.M. from the Juilliard School. Class of 2014
I am a saxophonist, clarinetist, flutist, composer and educator. I have performed with artists in Jazz, Pop and Classical, including Herbie Hancock, Morgan James and Matthew Morrison (from the Fox television series "Glee").
While at Juilliard, I focused on jazz and saxophone performance. I also taught music through Juilliard's Music Advancement Program (MAP) where I had the pleasure of working with some the most gifted middle school students in the New York area.
In the past, I have worked with all levels of students, ranging from absolute beginners just embarking on there musical journey to experienced professionals looking to expand there conceptual horizons, technique and more. I have also enjoyed working with and helping students with learning disabilities.
I approach all my students with compassion and respect. I believe that anyone can learn to do anything--given good methodology, instruction and desire.
My primary goal as a teacher is to inspire my students to grow in their own creativity and interests and to provide tools, insights and techniques to help them do so.
I would love to work with you!
