- Teaching since:
I am freelance musician operating primarily in the LA area. I earned my B.M. in music performance from Biola University and my M.M. in music performance from California State University, Long Beach.
Throughout the years spent as a student and a professional, I’ve had the opportunity to study with and play along side some of the world’s greatest horn players and pedagogues.
My teaching philosophy is to always find the system that best works for the individual. My ultimate goal for all my students is that they can eventually be their own teacher. Every student is different. We all have different physical and psychological characteristics that inform how we understand and apply technique. My modus operandi is to always start with a broad overview of some of the world’s best tested methods, then move on to a more tailored method as the student develops their own musical identity.
I believe there's a place in the world for horn players of ALL levels. I doesn't matter what your aspirations are, if you have a passion for horn playing, then you're on the same page as me! I love the horn and I love teaching others how to play it!
