I am happy to help your ensemble prepare for a festival or concert performance. I also have extensive experience coaching sectionals and small ensembles for some of the best music programs in Ohio, as well as OMEA regional orchestras.
With experience teaching and adjudicating across all levels of instrumental music education, I am prepared to offer appropriate and insightful reflections that help your students grow, regardless of their age or ability level. Book me for your large or small ensemble festival now.
My teachers include Grammy winning chamber musicians and major orchestra members. I have performed repertoire ranging from Mozart to Maslanka in pits, orchestras and wind ensembles around the country and overseas. I also have extensive experience as chamber musician in both brass and woodwind small ensembles. Most recently I played 4th horn with the Interlochen Arts Camp Faculty Brass Ensemble.
