Overview

Hello, a little about myself, I have a bachelors degree in Music Education from Florida A&M University and Specialist Certificate in Jazz Composition and Arranging from Berklee College of Music. I have been teaching for the last 17 yrs as either a elementary or middle school band director. I have lead many of my students to All City Honors, superior ratings at Solo and Ensemble and alike. I am a woodwind specialist who can teach brass performance. I would like to extend an invitation to all students who are interested in jazz studies as it relates to scales, interpreting chord symbols, establishing tunes for your repertoire and overall performance.
