Overview:
I have been a musician for 29yrs. with Alto Sax being my Primary Instrument. Being a Woodwind player I also play Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, Tuba, and Percussion. I have performed in many large/medium/small venues with many Bands and Ensembles throughout my career. I have also, been a Georgia Certified Teacher, member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity, and member of the Music Educators National Conference for 14yrs. Most recently as an educator in Clayton County I performed with other musicians at a County production of "The Wiz".
EXPERIENCE
I have lead others and taught them before ever having my own classroom as a leader in High School and College. It has greatly pleased me that my students have had many accomplishments in many groups. These vary from various Honors Bands, the Atlanta Youth Symphony Orchestra, and many High Valued Scholarships. I ecourage regular practice for all my students to review and refine their musicianship overall. I am always looking for new and exciting opportunities to teach those who are interested. Currently I am working in Clayton County Schools as the Director of Bands at Forest Park Middle School. 
METHODS USED
I have the most Experience using the following Method Books: Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Accent on Achievement, Instrumental Methods and many other methods. Initially (and throughout) I place a high value on performance fundamentals. I start with a focus on proper posture and breathing. Once this can be executed I breakdown the nomenclature of the student's instrument, how to put it together and break it down. Next the focus becomes proper grip for mallets/sticks and embouchure placement for winds. Students then begin to develop a proper "buzz" and "coo" and "roll" for their selected instrument as they work on basic notes for some time. Eventually this playing short 3 note songs and then 5 note songs etc. Progress for mastery is constantly checked.
LESSON STYLE
  In my classroom transdisciplinary is innate to my teach style.  I teach all skills in my class using many methods including but, not limited to the following: Clapping, singing, stomping, writing, modeling, syllables (math), one-on-one  Beginning players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles.    Experienced players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. A high focus of our Studio time will be spent developing Music/Solos etc. they are already preparing for Honors groups, High School and College. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles.
