I have a M.M. from New England Conservatory of Music and a B.M. from Berklee College of Music.

As a teacher, I'm enthusiastic, easy going and flexible. I really enjoy seeing my students learn and progress and I take great pride in their accomplishments. First, I like to find out all about your prior experience and what kinds of music you prefer. That way I know exactly where we should begin and what the focus should be. Personally, I love music of all kinds and have expertise in many styles including jazz, classical, funk and blues. I've been doing this for a long time and through many years of teaching, I've developed a highly effective and proven approach for helping you reach you goals.

First, I find out as much as I can about your experience and musical preferences. After I determine the best and most appropriate place to begin, I give you materials, which are not only fun but help you reach your goals quickly and efficiently. For beginners, I cover all of the fundamentals of tone, reading, rhythm, and technique. For intermediate and advanced players, I teach all styles including bop, swing, modal, blues, fusion, smooth jazz, Latin, improvisation, and classical - and all aspects of woodwind technique from beginner to professional.
