Music is the shorthand of emotion
I am an instrumental jack-of-all-trades that has been musically invloved since the age of 7. I began with piano lessons, moved to percussion, then tuba and euphonium, and have been perfoming privately and professionally for a number of years.
I recieved my B.S. in General Music with a Tuba and Euphonium concentration from Frostburg State University in 2017 and am currently pursuing a M.S. in Secondary Education from McDaniel College with a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Equity and Excellence.
I regularly perform in the Frederick and Westminster areas with several theater companies such as the Fredericktowne Players, Other Voices Theater, and Small Town Stars. I also am the Assistant Band Director for the Walkersville High School Marching Lions aand Low Brass tech for the Linganore High School Marching Lancers.
I have extensive expertise and knowledge in Keyboards (Digital and Acoustic), Brass Instruments (High, Middle, and Low), Percussion (Acoustic, Digital, Auxiliary, and Digital), Music (Sheet Music, Digital Libraries, Method Books, Solo and Ensemble Literature), Composition/Arranging, and the proper Accessories for each.
I have a love for all types of music, though I am drawn to Blues, Classic Rock, and Broadway music. I also am drawn to Classical music and the ensembles settings that this music is played in, though my favorite type of ensemble setting is a toss-up between marching band and pit orchestra.
I have a love for music that has driven me to pursue my dreams for years and thoroughly enjoy being in the position to help other people discover their dreams or passions involving music. If there is anything I can do to help you make your musical dreams a reality, please let me know!
