Hey there!

My name is Jacob and I am a music education student at the University of Florida!
My primary instrument is trombone but I also play euphonium, trumpet, and piano. I started playing trombone in the 6th grade and I haven't looked back since!
I have experience in a wide range of ensembles. I've played in wind bands, orchestras, jazz bands, and some pop and soul bands as well. I have a great passion for music as well as a passion for teaching. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn music in an effective environment. I do my best to provide that environment for my students.

Here are just a few ensembles I've been blessed to be a part of...
UF Wind Symphony 2015-2017
UF Symphony Orchestra 2016
UF Jazz Band 2015 - present
The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps 2015-present
UF Gator Marching Band 2015-2016
The Savants of Soul 2018
