I'm a saxophonist/composer who also plays clarinet/flute/piano. I've toured the world multiple time with Warner Bros. artist Michael Buble as well as with a number of jazz acts. I've played on Broadway and most late night television shows throughout the world. I've been teaching for over 20 years in all sorts of capacities including: college, high school clinics, elementary school general band, and private instruction to ages 8 through 60. I've developed a style of teaching that works on the technical aspects of playing an instrument as much as the mental aspects needed to concentrate on becoming an effective musician. I am currently pursuing a doctorate degree at the University of Miami as well as teaching at Barry University. I have used Skype to teach as well and have found tremendous success with it.
I also focus on teaching improvisation to instrumentalist who do not play jazz but would like to learn how to improvise in their respective style of music. I have had very successful students of all disciplines while I lived in NYC and hope to continue that trend here in Florida.
