- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I work as a band director by day and a superhero freelance musician by... whenever I get hired to do so (that sounded better in my head). I have been playing trumpet since I was 9 years old and have loved the experiences in life that have come through music. This instrument has taken me many places, allowed me to meet many people, and is constantly teaching me new things. I am very passionate about music, but you should never take yourself too seriously. Some of the best lessons were learned by just having a good time making music.
I also have 2 degrees: Bachelors in Instrumental Education and Masters in Wind Band Conducting.
I work as the Band Director for a school dedicated to the fine and performing arts. I instruct two concert bands, one jazz band, a percussion program, marching band, and work as an academic advisor to my students.
I perform as a freelance trumpeter for a wide variety of groups and events.
I taught an entire K-12 music program including general music, band, and choir.
I am certified to teach music for all grades K-12
