Brass Instructor/Music Educator
As an educator and youth worker, my aim is to foster a deep love for music as well as disciplined practice habits in all of my students. Since as young as I can remember, music has always been a place I could go to both focus and relax. With a deep understanding for the joy music brings both as a performer and an avid music lover, I feel privileged the share my passion daily.
Currently, I work as the brass instructor and codirector of the youth Latin Ensemble at Zumix. In addition to private instruction on trombone and trumpet, I have lead an 8 week musical enrichment course at the Excel Charter School. This program allowed each child to use their own plastic trombone to explore brass instruments and their role in varied musical traditions.
The Zumix Youth Latin Ensemble is a regularly-performing group of 9-17 year-olds. The ensemble performs a variety of original compositions as well as music from Latin artists from Carlos Santana to Antonio Carlos Jobim. This ensemble has has many performance opportunities, including opening for world-renowned timbale player Eguie Castrillo.
I also teach trombone and trumpet privately throughout the Greater Boston area. Please visit my contact page to inquire about rates, availability, and scheduling.
