About Jeff

At Eastman School of Music (B.M.), I received extensive training in saxophone performance, music theory, and music history. While attending the elite Frost School of Music at the University of Miami (M.M.), I honed my jazz performance skills with well-renowned teachers and performers. I have recently completed several doctoral courses at the University of Southern California in music education and pedagogy. I have also received a graduate certificate from the University of Southern California in arts leadership and entrepreneurship.

I have also worked at the Manhattan School of Music as a production assistant and stage manager where opera, theater, and orchestra performances allowed me to elevate, expand, and hone my managing skills and leadership qualities.

I have spent several years learning both jazz and classical music theory and history. My primary instrument is saxophone and I most enjoy playing jazz. I have a good working knowledge of many other music concepts and practices such as: composition, piano, music production, pedagogy, and conducting.

I am passionate about playing and teaching music. I like to teach each student through specific and individualized methods. I believe the most important lessons are ones that inspire a willingness and passion to learn.
