I am a San Francisco native and a graduate of Lowell High School and San Francisco State University, where I earned degrees in music performance and education.
I teach all the brass instruments at my studio in Belmont, at Skyline College in San Bruno, and at Manor Music in Pacifica.
I have also taught on the faculties of San Francisco Community Music Center and Walnut Creek Civic Arts.

As Trumpeter, Arranger & Bandleader, I lead three of the Bay Area's finest musical groups: The Brassworks, Gabriel's Trumpets, and The Memorial Brass.
I perform with Symphony Parnassus, Golden Gate Park Band, Golden Gate Symphony, The E-Ticket Band, Silicon Gulch Jazz Band and the Kally Price Blues Band.
I am also Jazz Cornetist and Musical Arranger for San Francisco’s long-running immersive theatrical show The Speakeasy.

With over 30 years playing and teaching the brass instruments, I know how to make our lessons educational, productive and fun.

In our lessons, I cover all the basics of playing: breathing, technique, rhythm, style, improvisation, etc. You’ll learn the language of music, some music history and theory, and we’ll play duets.

As you apply yourself to your musical studies, you will experience improvement and be able to attain your musical goals.

Franklin was so patient with my 14-year-old son. We look forward to our next lesson.
