"Play that louder!"
I started my journey through the world of music at the age of eleven when I started taking band class as an elective in middle school. On the first day of class I was excited to choose the saxophone as my instrument and to one day learn jazz and rock. Little did I know the world had other plans for me as a musician. After finding out there weren't any saxophones left, I was handed a baritone and began making some terrible noises (haha!). Almost seventeen years later I now play a multitude of different instruments in the brass family with a focus on the trombone.
I've been a gigging musician in the state of Florida now for the past six years. I've played in a multitude of groups ranging from styles covering classical and jazz band literature to latin, rock, ska, and funk.
My career in music has also allowed me to play for large audiences all around the country and even the world! Back when I was younger I was an avid fan of Drum Corps International and participated in multipe seasons with groups such as the Teal Sound Drum & Bugle Corps, Phantom Regiment Drum & Bugle Corps, and the Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps. Ive toured all forty-eight states within the continental United States and I've toured six different countries in Europe! My career performing has given me the honor of sharing the stage with some amazing musicians as well, such as Arturo Sandoval, Harry Waters, the Boston Brass, Ricky Martin, and more.
My goal here in the store is to prepare anyone and everyone for their journey through music. I want to be able to help everyone that I can get started and achieve their dreams of performing. Whether it be playing for their own personal joy at home, or working themselves up to playing for a sold out NFL stadium. I want to help as many people as I can discover the joy and passion for playing music.
Feel free to stop by and I'll happy to help you with any questions you may have ranging from band and orchestra equipment, to printed literature, to even working in the music industry. I look forward to helping you out!
