I teach all levels from beginning to early professional. I believe that music enriches the lives of anyone who endeavors to play it and there is room to grow at any stage. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have done masterclasses, clinics, residencies, private lessons and skype lessons.
My main focus as an educator is to guide my students into discovering their strongest talents, inspire them to develop their abilities further and impart the importance of goal oriented study that will allow them to reach their fullest potential.
My recent experience as a teacher/resident faculty member and adjudicator include:
. Elgin Community College, Elgin IL, Saxophone Professor
· Qatar Music Academy, Woodwind Professor 2016- 2017
· Jazz St. Louis, Teaching Artist in Residence, October 24-29 2016
· New York Youth Symphony Young Composer Competition 2015, Adjudicator
· Jazz House Kids Chica Power Residency 2015, Teaching Artist
· The Jazz Academy of Music, Teaching Artist in Residence 2012 & 2013
