My Teaching Philosophy

I want you to love creating music—classical, jazz, hip-hop, rock, funk, and on and on.  I want you to feel like anything you want to play is possible, because it is!  Everything we do as brass players stems from the basics: sound, flexibility, and articulation.  As your teacher, it is my responsibility to ensure proper exposure to these basics and find methodologies and tools that best suit you.  Basics are genre-less.  Once this base is strong, we can confidently work towards your musical goals and interests.
