I am an experienced performer, gigging frequently on all four saxophones in classical and jazz settings. I've performed with the Temptations, the Phoenix Symphony, and the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band, among many others. I grew up in Arizona, so I have a lot of experience in--and knowledge about--the advanced extracurricular music groups around the Valley, including All-State Band, All-State Jazz Band, Phoenix Youth Symphony, and Young Sounds of Arizona. I've had experience teaching students of all levels in private lessons and sectionals. First and foremost, I want to instill a love of music in my students. This is easy for me, since music is my biggest passion. I have a private saxophone studio of students who range in ages from 9 to 60. We also cover music theory, history, and compositional subjects in these lessons. In addition, I have taught clarinet and saxophone sectionals at Connolly Middle School and Interlochen Arts Camp. Feel free to contact me for rates and more information.
