Overview:
I am a passionate and enthusiastic instructor who enjoys working with students. I started learning piano at the age of six and have expanded my studies into trumpet, double bass, bass guitar, percussion, and voice over the past twenty years. I earned a B.A. in History and a B.A. in Trumpet Performance at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and a M.M. in Music History and Literature at the University of Akron. I have studied music over the years with Alan Hamant, Kevin Kjos, John Metcalf, Daniel Neuenschwander, Samuel Gordon, Cynthia Wohlschlager, and Lisa Foerster. I have performed with The Singers Companye of Cleveland, Stow Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; as well as performed solo works with The Civic Band of Wilkes-Barre, and the Kutztown University Jazz Ensemble. I have performed in clinics conducted by award-winning musicians such as David Cullen, Frank Lacy, Paul Corn, Allison Miller, Jeff Coffin, Bob Baca, Ingrid Jensen, and Wynton Marsalis. As a brass instructor, I have assisted high school marching bands in Northeast Pennsylvania for ten years and have performed in pit orchestras on various instruments for the past twenty years.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience dates back to when I graduated high school in 2006, when I began teaching private lessons in trumpet. To help reduce the cost of tuition, I have maintained a studio of students for the past nine years in trumpet, bass, percussion, and voice. I have taught in the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, and New York and thanks to the hard work my students put in outside of lessons, I have former students who went on to continue their studies at West Chester University, Kutztown University, and Manhattan School of Music. I am a firm believer in maintaining a daily practice schedule, understanding that playing is a summation of muscle energy that only gets stronger with use. An objective I have with all of my students is to not only build their ability to play what is on the music page, but their ability to understand why their music sounds the way it is as well as the attempt to understand what the composer's intentions were in their compositions.
METHODS USED
For beginning students who are children, I start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements in their respected instruments. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp on the fundamentals, other methods like the Cichowiecz Method, and Bill Adam Flow Studies are introduced. No two students are the same, so there is no way I would force all of my students to follow the same method of learning. For adults, once I find out their performance and sight-reading ability, I teach on their interests -- whether it be contemporary, classical, jazz, and anything in between.
LESSON STYLE
For my beginning students, I build their musical knowledge with Essential Elements books, learning key/time signatures, and build their ability to understand music theory. Most of my middle school and high school students are in performing ensembles in their school so I am more than happy to help them learn their repertoire! For my advanced students, especially my advanced classical and jazz students -- I teach mainly on the Bill Adam Method. Heavily reliant on the ability to hear and duplicate sound and reasonance, I teach my students with the objective that they will be able to learn to play their repertoire with the appropriate, albeit consistent, tone for the piece.

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.
