Hello! I have played brass instruments in many different ensembles over the last 15 years, including concert bands, jazz ensembles, brass quintets, marching bands, drum and bugle corps, and more, and I would like to share these experiences with you as you build your own rewarding experiences with music.

I attended Hofstra University and The Hartt School, earning a B.S. in Music Education and a M.M. in Euphonium Performance, respectively. I am available for students of all ages and backgrounds, and will attend to the goals of each student separately and deliberately.

I think that Joel Meltzer is an excellent trumpet teacher. He is both professional and personable. He was able to quickly assess my current skill level and determine where I needed to start for my first lesson without making me feel insecure in any way.

I look forward to getting more competent with each succeeding lesson.
