As a teacher, I strive to maintain a positive environment. I believe that it is best to keep an objective mindset when working towards improvement. Fundamentals are extremely important for any trumpeter. Having studied with some of the worlds best pedagogues (see bio), I supply my students with the necessary tools for continued improvement. I also try to gear my lessons towards each student’s individual goals and interests. It is important to work on something enjoyable in order to be inspired and fully experience the benefits of improvement. I hope all my students will be instilled with an appreciation for music as an art form!
