I’m an entertaining and engaging music educator with more than a decade of experience working with students and instrumentalists in middle school, high school, and college. I’m a graduate of the University of Southern Maine and Indiana State University, and I’m active as a composer, arranger, trumpet player, and conductor around the Northeast United States. I’m also currently a Middle school music teacher in RI, and I help run summer camp programs for student leaders in high school band programs.
