About Me

Born and raised in Alamance County, I had the benefit of a strong band program, more importantly, parents who believed in supporting positive activities. My parents were not rich, but with the help of our neighborhood music store, C.B.Ellis Music, they took advantage of the rental program the store had for beginning students. So began my musical adventure, eventually performing throughout the United States, including Hawaii. Reaching outside the United States, performing in Canada, Germany & Italy. 

My formal training was in music education from UNC-G, with a B.M.ed degree.

After graduating UNC-G, I was offered a professional placement as a trumpet player, for the crusade team with Kenneth Hagin Ministries of Broken Arrow,Oklahoma. Some of the best post-grad training and growth of my life. Subsequently working for C.B.Ellis Music for 10 years,  then for Music & Arts after their acquisition of C.B.Ellis.Throughout my music retail tenure, I was used in the local area schools as a brass clinician. 

Returning to this field has been a sweet reunion of new faces and old, with the same enthusiasm I experienced in my youth, encouraging everyone to PLAY!!
