- Ages 8+
- Teaching since:
I am a graduate student from California State University Northridge with a degree in Jazz Studies. I have been playing the saxophone for 12 years now and flute for about 5. I have been fortunate to study under Rob Lockart and Katisse Buckingham, both studio giants in their own respects and with luck I will there too one day. As of now I have worked with Jimmy Borges, Barbara Morrison, as well as Melissa Manchester, all great vocalists that I considered myself lucky to work with. I have been teaching now off and on when I had the time and look forward to working with more students in the future as there is not enough music education made available to the masses anymore.
Recently began playing with Alex Snydman, Hank Mehren, and Brandon Fancher around LA. We play a mix of standards and originals.
Recently moved into a teacher position at the San Dimas Music and Arts shop.
I play Tenor sax and Flute in a jazz/funk trio that regularly plays at Armenian restaurant The Stage in Glendale
Played A handful of show dates with the DIY rock group Mild High Club as part of the horn section.
Played alongside highly recognized Hawaii vocalist Jimmy Borges as well as Melissa Manchester as a saxophone doubler in the Citrus College Big Band during three consecutive summer tours.
