With each new encounter whether it be in person or virtually, his passion and drive for the musical excellence of all students is evident.

Sean, Former Student
I have nearly a decade of teaching experience working with students of all ages. I have lectured at and conducted masterclasses at the University level. I am able to draw upon years of touring and performing experience to deliver insightful and useful information to the student.
My first college degree was in Music Therapy, where I was trained in advanced task analysis to work with older adults with severe profound intellectual disabilities. Although horn students are very different, my therapeutic training has stayed with me, and I utilize the listening, communication, and problem solving skills that served me so well when working as a therapeutic clinician.
When I was on tour with the United States Navy's "Harbor Brass Quintet" while I was stationed with the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band, I worked with students all across the world in masterclasses and lessons. Meeting and working with new students is the spice of life, and fostering a long term relationship with horn students as they grow is the fizz in life's soda!
Are you a classical musician who wants to explore some electronics? I teach a bit of that also. Reach out!
