I am a professional trombonist, arranger, and recording engineer. I graduated from the Longy School of Music of Bard College with a Master’s of Music in Modern American Music Performance, on Trombone specifically.

Trombone students can expect to improve week to week in their sound and technique. I like to meet students on even ground and bring out their own unique talents and strengths in their playing and performance practice. Using relaxation techniques and specialized trombone exercises any student can improve their playing and progress. These techniques can also help access areas in performance like improvisation.

I have performed professionally at many of the Greater Boston Area’s premiere venues such as Symphony Hall, Sculler’s Jazz Club, and the Harvard Sanders Theatre. I have experience in orchestra, jazz, rock, and contemporary music styles.
