January 2013

I am a passionate performer and dedicated music educator. I completed my graduate degree in Trombone Performance at the University of Denver - Lamont School of Music in 2017 and my undergraduate degree in Music Education from the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith in Spring 2015. During my time earning these degrees I learned how to teach in many different techniques and how to teach all sorts of learners. I love sharing my own passion for music with others and hopefully having them learn the same passion for themselves.

He is very patient and very quick to discovering and fixing the problems my kid has, or should I say had, on the trombone!
