I created this blog to advertise my availability as a trumpet instructor.
Accepting students of all ages in the greater Boston area.
I have a Graduate Diploma in Trumpet Performance with Distinction from the New England Conservatory of Music, Tanglewood Fellowship, Doctorate and Masters work in Performance and Pedagogy, and a Bachelors of Music Education. I have performed with many top orchestras around the country including the Boston, Baltimore, and Key West symphonies; the Bohsoi and Royal Ballet Orchestras; as well as many regional orchestras in the Boston area.
I teach the concepts of process orientation, keeping the mind off of product focus which is reactionary. Keeping the mind focused on the process of sound production with specific steps allows the mind to stay in the present tense and out of the judgement process.
My studio is avaiable for all levels, but also welcomes students who are preparing for competitions and auditions (college entrance, district and state level competitions, etc...) for short term lessons and coaching. I am also available for brass quintet/ensemble coaching and conducting. I studied wind ensemble conducting with Frank Battisti at the New England Conservatory of Music.
I look forward to assisting you with your musical advancement.
My former teachers are Charles Schlueter, Timothy Morrison, Vincent Penzerelli, Leon Rapier, and James Bursen.
