I am a highly experienced and highly educated musician with a B.M. from Berklee College of Music, M.M. from the New England Conservatory, and an A.D. from the Juilliard School under the direction of Wynton Marsalis. I have been teaching all ages for the past six years and have found a way to connect the student to music in a personalized and unique way.
My experience at Berklee and Juilliard was amazing because of the teachers, and I want to pass the knowledge they gave me onto others.

I have performed all over the world with all types of music! From jazz, to funk, to top 40; I've enjoyed it all. Whatever you would want to learn, I would be able to help because of my diverse musical background.
Before moving to NYC, I was the resident trumpet instructor in a town right outside of Boston, called Medfield. I am particularly proud of this because the band director, and my employer was a teacher of mine when I was younger. For him to hire me for supplemental trumpet lessons for his students was a very proud moment for me.
