In Their Own Words

"I want my students to come away [from my classes] with how to function as a professional musician in a group setting: ways to problem solve, and different approaches to performing and contributing to whatever musical situation they are put in."

"Professionally, I've toured, performed, and recorded with a wide variety of artists in a wide variety of musical settings (live performances, recording sessions, music director for artists, and musical theater). Therefore I can teach, give advice, and speak on various musical situations."
