As a fully-certified music educator of 11 years and a musician of over 25 years, I have taught both middle school band & choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy.
In addition, I provide private music instruction each week teaching lessons on a variety of instruments: Piano, Saxophones, Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone, Drums, and Violin. Also, I have even served as a substitute teacher, as well as performing with various bands and ensembles over the years.
Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Other
I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).

My goal is to create life-long learners, so you may always find time for practice and a place to perform great music.
I focus on the needs and interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures!
