About Justin

Hello!  My name is Justin, I was born and raised near Cincinnati, Ohio and I’ve been playing saxophone since 1999.  I’ve played (or sang) in almost any group you can think of: concert band, marching band, jazz band, men’s chorus, barbershop, funk-n-soul, punk rock, and percussion ensembles.  Other than saxophone, I also play the double bass, electric bass, flute, and all sizes of clarinets.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Kent State University in northern Ohio where I studied with saxophonists Greg Banasak and Dr. Jeff Heisler.  I then continued my education here in Las Vegas at UNLV to receive my Master’s in Music Theory and Composition.  While at UNLV, I premiered many pieces of my own work, toured in France, can be heard on the UNLV Wind Orchestra’s album The Return, and performed alongside famous jazz saxophonist Eric Marienthal.

As a working musician, I am grateful for the many opportunities I have working in Las Vegas.  I regularly play shows with the local band Soul Juice, perform in the pit for musicals, teach for multiple CCSD music programs, and have played festivals such as Life is Beautiful.  Ask where I’m playing next!

Outside of music, I enjoy other things as well.  I go hiking, ride a longboard, cook, and workout at the gym.  Looking forward to meeting and helping you become an outstanding musician!
