My musical journey started at a very young age, singing in church and elementary school choirs. I started taking sax lessons in 5th grade, when I decided that I wanted to be a consummate musician. Every Saturday morning, I took lessons in Jazz and Classical at Temple University's Community Music Scholar's Program from grades 6-12. I'm a graduate of Creative and Performing Arts high school ('15) in Philly and The University of the Arts ('19).
I've played lead alto in my high school's jazz band and the UArts Z Big Band. I've also played with many other musicians, vocalists, rappers, poets, etc. around the tristate area and along the east coast. I've traveled to Italy with the Philadelphia All City Orchestra in 2015 for a 9 day concert tour, and have played with notable musicians such as Larry McKenna, Tony Micelli, Tom Lawton, Don Liuzzi, Micah Jones. I've also played on numerous recording sessions for local artists.
My goal is to become one with the music and create effortlessly through my practice regiments and collaborating with others, regardless of the genre.
Teaching general music to 5th-8th grade students. Including bucket drumming, singing, piano, music theory/harmony, basic composition, etc.
