HI! I'm a band director in Texas and I like to have fun on trumpet. I've been playing for nearly 20 years and I'm here to help you get to where you want to go on the horn. I can help you improve your chair position in band, get ready for that major audition competition, or learn how to play without reading music! Send me a message and lets get started!

Experience

Jan 2013 - Present
Middle School and High School level

I've helped over 100 beginning trumpet students get off the ground on their instrument. My trumpet students repeatedly rank in the top 5% of their sections in both middle school and high school. My students have also won soloist awards at competitions.

In addition to many member benefits, TMEA offers professional development opportunities for its members with Region workshops and especially with its annual Clinic/Convention.
