Hi! My name is Paul. I recently graduated from Arizona State University with my Master of Music in Performance. I am currently in the first year of my Doctor of Music Arts program in performance, also at Arizona State University.

As an educator, I have several years of teaching in a private setting. I also have experience working in public schools for short, one-on-one lessons and larger master classes on trombone. I have worked with beginners that are completely new to the instrument to freshman and sophomore college students. I also have experience as a teaching assistant for music theory (University of Idaho).

I have a wide array of performance experience. I was a tenured member of the Washington-Idaho Symphony on bass trombone for five years. I left to pursue my Masters degree from ASU. Other orchestral experience includes several Summer Pops concerts with the Great Falls Symphony, some featured artists such as Kansas and Charlie Daniels. I have spent several years playing in jazz bands, Jazz I from the University of Idaho and Concert Jazz Band from ASU. In the spring of 2016, I performed with ASU's Concert Jazz Band at Highland Jazz Festival where we featured Wayne Bergeron and Andy Martin. I most recently performed with the Salt River Brass on their program, "Made in America," that featured trumpet soloist Rex Richardson.

I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.
