I'm a local freelance musician living in Phoenix, AZ with a passion for many different types of music! I have a B.M. from Boston University and a M.M. from the UNC School of the Arts, both in Music Performance specializing in Trumpet. Though Trumpet is my primary instrument, I play and teach in a wide variety of musical disciplines, including Trumpet, French Horn, Piano, Music Production/Recording, Music Theory, and Ear Training. I've released one album of original music under the moniker Hands Up Eyes Shut, and I play in several groups in the Phoenix area-a classical brass quintet, two jazz combos, and an indie rock group, as well as substitute work with the Phoenix and Tucson Symphonies from time to time. On the teaching side of things, I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, maintain a healthy studio, and also teach several music courses as an adjunct faculty member in the Maricopa Community College system. I've been fortunate to have trumpet students who have been accepted as music performance majors at both Arizona State University (on scholarship) and Northwestern University (the best trumpet studio in the country for many years) if you're thinking of making music a career, and I'm also available for audition coaching for any instrument if you're looking to brush up on your All Region or All State audition material!
