Columbia Concert Band
Educational Sales Rep
Through middle and high school I played in every ensemble I could: marching band, jazz band, and concert band. I also participated in solo & ensemble festivals and region band. I loved every minute of being in high school band. My director made a big impact on me as a musician and a person.
After high school I attended Newberry College and got a bachelors degree in Music Education. While at Newberry I played with the concert band, marching band, brass ensemble, and Jazz Big Band, as well as sang in the choir. Playing with the jazz band was a great opportunity because I had the chance to play with musicians like Lou Marini and Victor Wooten. In my final year I internshiped with the band programs at Newberry High School and Whitmire Community School.
Since graduating from Newberry College I have been the choir director at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Little Mountain, SC. I have also worked as a substitute teacher for Richland School District 1, as well as the Assistant Band Director at Lower Richland High School. I attended grad School at the University of South Carolina.
I joined Music and Arts in early 2012 as a lessons teacher for brass instruments. In October of 2012 I joined the sales team full time.
I still occassionally play guitar, but i make an effort to play my trombone regularly, either on solo work or with ensembles. Currently I am playing with the Columbia Community Concert Band.
