I believe in fostering an environment of creativity, exploration, and goal oriented decisions. I place strong emphasis on trumpet fundamentals, as well as a working and relevant knowledge of music theory. It is my goal, through careful guidance, that students can learn how to identify the areas they wish to improve upon and the discover the necessary steps to most effectively achieve them.  

I also encourage students to listen to music and to learn how to enjoy the process of practicing an instrument. It is supposed to be fun!
