About me

Lessons should be fun & easy - whether you're a beginner or developing new skills. When I first meet a student, I want to know what makes them feel excited! Students need to feel inspired...and their personalities will determine my method of teaching. Every student needs something different from me. Once I know what you love, I'll give you the tools you need to groove!

PIANO - note-reading, chording, classical, jazz, pop/etc.
BRASS - trumpet, trombone, baritone/euphonium, horn, tuba
VOICE - beginning vocal techniques, sing & play

CREATIVE - song-writing, composition, improvisation
