Hello and welcome! If you are interested in starting trumpet lessons, picking up where you left off (if you took some time away from music), or advancing your skills to the intermediate/advanced level (collegiate audition prep, etc...) please join me for custom-tailored sessions to accommodate your goals! Music Composition/Arranging, Theory and Songwriting are areas that I specialize in as well. I have 18+ years of teaching experience and am currently on Faculty in the Dept. of Music at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. I truly look forward to meeting and working with you!
