Teaching since:
August 2010

I discovered my love for music at a young age and followed that passion all through my middle and high school years. I was first chair trumpet from 6-12th grade, and served as trumpet section leader from 10th grade to 12th grade. I've earned many awards throughout my playing career including first division Solo & Ensemble for 3 years straight, the Richard Cammack Outstanding Bandsman Award, and a seat in the All-Area concert band.

I earned my Associate of Arts Degree from Kilgore College and am currently working on my Bachelor of Music Education Degree at Stephen F. Austin State University.

I can't wait to meet my students, and I thank you for allowing me to help you grow in music and find your passion like I did!

Dylan has been very helpful with teaching me how to breathe correctly. He had patience with me when he was teaching me intonations. Very affordable.

Best player I've heard in person. Very smart and excellent technique and tone. He's got a very pleasurable personality and he is so easy to learn from. He definitely cares about his students! Four thumbs up!
