Hi there! I am a 22-year-old trombonist and singer from New Orleans, LA. I graduated from The Juilliard School with my Bachelor's in Jazz Studies in May 2018, and I am returning to Juilliard to pursue my Master's. You can catch me working a LOT in the NY area as both a sideman and a leader of my own quintet.
I also play euphonium, tuba and some piano. I've performed/recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Mac Miller, John Legend, Solange, Jon Batiste, and more. I have studied privately/have great relationships with world-renowned trombonists such as Steve Turre, Joe Alessi, Elliot Mason, Delfeayo Marsalis and Wycliffe Gordon. I would be more than happy to share with you what I have learned (and continue to learn) from such amazing players.
It would be my pleasure to help you increase your musicianship! All I ask is that you be honest with me as well as yourself. I love to learn equally as much as I love to teach, so book a lesson! (Ask about my group lesson rates, those are always a lot of fun too!) Let's learn from each other!
Charles Turner is hands-down, one of my favorite jazz vocalists of this generation, and it is an honor to be in his band. Every time we play, we bring down the house with swing!
Endea Owens is a young star bass player with whom I went to Juilliard. Playing in her band feels like being at a cookout, surrounded by family!
Steven Feifke is a master of harmony and orchestration (and not to mention, a KILLING pianist). Playing in his big band always keeps me on my toes (in the good way).
Performing on and off with the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis. For example, I have played trombone for the first half of their 2018 European Tour. Other concerts include "Music of Ornette Coleman" in the JALC Rose Theater and "Leonard Bernstein at 100" at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.+ Read More
