About Me

I am a professional trumpet player, educator, and entrepreneur who is dedicated to sharing the joy of music with students of all ages. Music possesses an uncanny ability to teach our students lessons they cannot learn from a textbook – lessons about self-expression, perseverance, and the beauty of collaboration. I utilize the trumpet as a tool for teaching critical thinking, problem solving, and self-love in a way that is designed to help students reach their fullest potential, both on and off the instrument.  

In addition to sharing these lessons through private instruction and clinics, I am also passionate about bringing high-level musical performances into public schools. I have participated in educational outreach performances with the New Mexico Philharmonic Brass Quintet and the Sandia Brass Quintet. These performances highlight the ability of music to influence our youth and help to build connections in our communities through music. 

I also love performing, and have performed with several professional ensembles including the New Mexico Philharmonic, Ensemble Music New Mexico, the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, and the Panama City Pops Orchestra. The joy of performing at a high level is at the core of my teaching, and a sensation I hope to share with all of my students. 

I have received a Masters of Music in Trumpet Performance from the University of New Mexico and a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet Performance from Florida State University. I have been fortunate to study with Dr. Jason Dovel, Dr. Christopher Moore, and Dr. John Marchiando. The lessons I have learned from these wonderful mentors has shaped my approach to teaching the art of trumpet playing.
