I have been involved in the Kansas City music world since I was 5 years old. As a native of Independence, Missouri, I grew up in a rich musical heritage that included choral, orchestral, and gospel genres. As a student, I've studied at Brigham Young University, Central Missouri State University, UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, and have participated in a distance research program through The Florida State University. As a composer/arranger, I've written choral literature that spans from SATB to two-part youth choir settings. I have studied under and attended master-classes with Dr. Doug Helvering, Morton Lauridsen, and Stephen Paulus. In 2015, three of my 'Americana' arrangements will be published as a set of variations on American folk tunes by Santa Barbara Publishing Inc. As a singer, I've performed with the BYU Singers, the Grammy nominated Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Vox Luminese Chamber Choir, and have recently recorded media projects with San Francisco based mens ensemble Chanticleer. I have been a chorister and soloist in the Highland Music Festival, in Edinburgh, Scotland, and have participated in concerts in Carnegie Hall, The National Cathedral, Christ-Church Abbey, and London's famed Southwark Cathedral. This year, I was selected to participate in the Tallis Scholar Summer Camp program, under directors Rebekah Gilmore and Peter Phillips. As a conductor, I've worked with Mack Wilberg, Craig Jessop, Ron Staheli, Jo-Michael Scheibe, and Peter Bagley, among others. I have directed the BYU-Idaho Jazz and Symphonic Bands, and am the assistant director the Center Place Singers. I am also the founder and artistic director of Knsas City based chamber ensemble Ancora Chorale. In addition to my conducting duties, I currently hold membership with Spire Symphonic and Chamber Choirs, Te Deum Chamber Choir, and the KC Men's Ensemble, with which I recently performed at the KCDA state convention at Grace Cathedral, in Topeka, Kansas. I am a current member of the American Choral Directors Association, ASCAP, and the Missouri Music Educators Association. I also operate a full voice and piano studio in the Kansas City Metropolitan area, and serve as a board Advisor for the Spire Choir organization.

I always start by asking the student if he/she has any goals or upcoming performances they'd like to concentrate on.  If so, we focus mainly on that goal, while also incorporating vocal exercises and other methods to continually improve the voice.  Otherwise, we will start with mainly vocal exercises (which will grow in difficulty as we master the easier ones), and after a few weeks, start applying what we've learned in the exercises to some songs (usually folk songs, art songs, Broadway, occasionally some opera).

In my studio, I listen to the work that the student prepares for the lesson and assist with technical, performance, and musical aspects. We also listen to new music and discuss various aspects of the development of music.For younger students, I have computer based learn to help reinforce fundamentals, and also games that can help keep the learning an exciting and fun-filled experience. For my adults with goals in classical music, I offer in-class study of theory, repertoire, and history. I believe that performance helps students and inspires them to reach their goals so I do give studio recitals at least four times a year as well as encourage my students to play competitions, and other performance venues. It is my desire to help each student gain not only a understanding of music but a true passion for the art form.

I am an experienced and motivated musician that enjoys sharing my passion for music with others. I am currently a doctoral student at the UMKC conservatory on scholarship, and the trombone instructor at Truman State University.  I have played in many different ensembles, including orchestras, jazz bands, brass quintets, brass bands and funk bands, in addition to playing trombone for many local productions of broadway shows.  I have had the wonderful opportunity to play at festivals and conferences in Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing and Napa Valley.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
