Background & Experience

I have a diverse musical background that intertwines his passion for classical, jazz, and pop music. I hold a Bachelors Degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with concentrations in Trumpet Performance and Music Business. On top of earning a performance scholarship from Berklee, I had the pleasure of assisting with various Trumpet clinics and sitting in with local Boston ensembles. While at Berklee, I studied with tremendously inspiring and prominent trumpet teachers like Tiger Okoshi, Charlie Lewis, and Christine Fawson. All of these teachers left an enormous impact on both his performance and teaching style. Currently, I am currently a member of the Encore Concert Band and plays with various groups around the Chicagoland area including the Sole City Juke Band.

Since I am committed to having my students achieve excellence, all lessons are recorded via MP3 and emailed to the students (and parents!) the next day so we can track out progress!
