Teaching since:

I'm a dad, music lover, collector of Funko Pops! I grew up playing piano and drums, then specialized in drums thru HS where I studied with some top names in CA, several of which are still big names in the industry today. I picked up Trumpet and, after marching 3 yrs with a DCI Champion Drum Corps (yes I won DCI) I focused on Trumpet performance in college and then 12 years in the U.S. Navy Band.

YEARS of performing and thousands of gigs later, I left the service and now I'm looking to add more students to my schedule. I have taught many students privately over the years while performing.

I have studied Trumpet with professors and performers in major orchestras. While looking for a teacher, I value a highly-experienced instrumentalist who knows the ins-and outs of getting success with that horn (as opposed to an education major that can show how to hold a trumpet and push buttons)

Hope to meet you soon!
