Teaching since:
June 2008

I have recently moved to West Palm Beach from Houston and New York City before that. I received my Masters Degree in Trombone Performance from The Juilliard School in 2014. I am primarily a tenor trombone player, however I also play the alto trombone, euphonium, and have had several bass trombone and tuba students.
I have taught at many schools in New York, Chicago, and Houston. Much of my teaching is modeled after training I've received in the El Sistema program of Venezuela and teaching artist programs at The Juilliard School. I have studied with some of the world's finest trombone players; including Joseph Alessi, Per Brevig, Denson Paul Pollard, and David Finlayson. I look forward to meeting any potential students!

Note for parents: I have had federal and state background checks as well as fingerprinting checks in New York, Illinois, and Texas, as it is a requirement to teach in public schools.
