Teaching Info

I am a recent graduate of the Juilliard School with 6 years of teaching experience. All ages and skill levels are welcome in my studio.

Every trumpet student has different strengths, weaknesses, facial structure, mouthpiece, and trumpet. I believe a student’s trumpet routine should be designed specifically to fit their needs and align with their goals as a musician. Once I understand your skill level and trumpet goals, I will personally create a practice routine designed specifically for you.

-Prepare for auditions, concerts, and recordings
-Improve your technique, musicality, and play with ease
-Foster confidence, problem solving, and discipline
