Teaching since:

I began playing in 6th grade. My dad is a guitarist/vocalist/flutist (he gigs in the south DFW area) and brought me up in a very musical household. Since then, I have played with groups such as Scott & Steve, Big Gus & Swampadelic, the Pecos River Brass Big Band, and some of UNT's top ensembles, including the U-Tubes and the A Cappella Choir.


Freelance Music Lesson Teacher
Aug 2015 - Present

I have taught private lessons by myself for 2 years and some change. My students have varied from beginners to advanced level college students, ranging from jazz to classical. As I have experience in everything from wind band performances to arranging, from professional auditions to jazz gigs, I feel that I have a unique skill set that allows me to cater to just about any student that comes my way. (I count this as a separate job, because it is legally considered a separate entity.)

We supplied numerous beginning students from four different schools with new instruments for the school year.

Begun in 1920 as the Texas Band Teachers Association, the Texas Music Educators Association is an organization of over 10,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. TMEA is comprised of five divisions: Band, Orchestra, Vocal, Elementary and College. On behalf of its members and Texas schoolchildren, TMEA carefully monitors the actions of all state decision-making bodies on issues affecting fine arts instruction in Texas. In addition to many member benefits, TMEA offers professional development opportunities for its members with Region workshops and especially with its annual Clinic/Convention. TMEA supports the future of music education by offering scholarships to music education majors and by sponsoring the Texas Future Music Educators, an organization through which high school students interested in careers in music education learn more about what to expect in their college education and future careers.

Look at that contrabrass! Thanks, Miraphone!

Recording all of the parts to an ensemble is a FANTASTIC way to test your intonation. Excerpt is from Eric Ewazen's Myths & Legends. Enjoy!
