I have taught beginners to top tier high school performers and everything in between with the consistent philosophy of letting the horn work for you in it’s most natural way. My curriculum not only teaches you to be a better horn player, but also a better overall musician by incorporating basic music theory and ear training in. The best built buildings always begin with a strong foundation which is my goal for every student I work with.
I am a professional horn player working as a freelance performer and teacher. I have performed professionally for the last four years and taught for the last five. For my undergraduate studies I attended one of the seven major music conservatories, The Cleveland Institute of Music, where I studied with the former Principal Horn of the Cleveland Orchestra, Richard King.
