I am a Master's trombone performance major at DePaul University, seeking opportunities to teach the instrument I love. I have been playing for 9 years and serve as Principal Chair for multiple ensembles at DePaul as well as ensembles in the Chicagoland area. At DePaul I study with Charlie Vernon of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Mark Fisher of the Lyric Opera Orchestra. Through my lessons with them, I have developed a mastery of the fundamentals of the trombone. I create a personalized teaching agenda based upon the student's skill level and wants from playing. I am excited to share all I have learned and help young players develop as musicians.

Trombone

I have been playing the trombone for 9 years and am currently receiving my Master's Degree in Trombone Performance at DePaul University. I have studied with some of the world's most elite trombone players such as Charlie Vernon and Michael Mulcahy of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as Jeremy Moeller and Mark Fisher of the Lyric Opera Orchestra. I have developed a practice routine that has helped me to master the fundamentals of the trombone. I am able to individualize lessons and explain things in a way that all levels of students can understand, as well as create a fun learning environment. I am exited to teach and help students learn the instrument I love.
