I was raised in Southern California in the Music Industry. My father makes World Class Brasswind Instruments. I played professionally at Disneyland, Las Vegas and on the road for years. I studied under Harold "Pappy" Mitchell-1st chair MGM Studios; Jimmy Stamp-L.A.Studios and Principal Trumpet Minneapolis Symphony; Claude Gordon-Hollywood Recording Artist and 1st chair CBS Studios. I like to work with all levels of students from Beginning to Advanced. I use a Physical Approach to Brass Playing. This allows the student to develop properly and play whatever is demanded of him/her. I especially like to help get young students off to a good start so they can enjoy music the rest of their life.
