I have nearly 20 years of experience teaching trumpet. I've taught all ages, from beginners to advanced students. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education (Fort Lewis College, 1996) and a Master's Degree in Jazz Pedagogy with an emphasis in Trumpet (University of Colorado, Boulder, 2004).
Since beginning to play the trumpet at age 11, I have always loved its sound. Through years of study I've come to appreciate and hone a diverse range of playing styles: classical, jazz, electronic and soul. I'm passionate about sharing my knowledge of trumpet and the joy it brings into my life. Playing trumpet every day makes me happy, and I bring that enthusiasm into every lesson I teach.
