About this pro

The most important part of playing any instrument or being a vocalist is being able to comprehend music theory and how to read music. My primary instrument is Saxophone, since I have been reading music for over 20 years my skills are transferrable to almost every wind instrument. I have experience working with youth and adults as I have over 8 years of professional teaching experience on the secondary and collegiate level. I enjoy working with beginners as I have a program geared to enhance the musicianship among the youth across the nation. I would love to assist you in enhancing your skills as a musician being in person or virtually as I am adding several other instruments for instruction currently I offer lessons for piano, all woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. In addition I tutor for music theory and assist individuals prepare for auditions such as solo and ensemble, concert festival, and even college band ensembles. If you allow me the opportunity to assist you in strengthening yourself as a musician you will be glad you did.
