"As a performer, I have always been involved with many different styles of music including classical, jazz, Latin, and world music. I like to help my students develop their sense of what they like by exposing them to a variety of styles along with establishing a strong base of solid trumpet technique.
My teaching philosophy is to gently guide each student toward their own potential on the instrument and to show them that it's fun and rewarding to be involved in music!"
