International competition-winning trombonist with a degree from the Eastman School of Music.

Methodology

I believe in a healthy dose of the fundamental building blocks of brass playing, i.e. lip slurs, long tones, scale work, articulation work and range-building. My students also receive plenty of content-specific instruction based on their needs and interests such as improvisation, sight-reading and audition prep.

Background

I am currently a Teaching Fellow at the University of North Texas where I direct two large ensembles and teach secondary jazz trombone lessons. I hold a Bachelor's from the Eastman School of Music where I studied jazz and classical trombone performance.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $40/h

Details
