Teaching

STUDY PRIVATELY WITH ME:

Currently I am offering online lessons as well as a limited amount of in person lessons. Online lessons have been an effective option during the pandemic and I enjoy teaching them. One of the things I enjoyed during my time as a student was getting a lesson from my teacher in the same room where I practiced, which was true during my time at Curtis, U of O, and Peabody. It is remarkably helpful to learn to make the sound and then come back to practice it in the exact same space. Even though online teaching has some limitations I have found just this one detail to be of remarkable value. Lessons are $80 for an hour (in person or online). If you require an accommodation with pricing please don't hesitate to ask.

As a teacher I have held positions at UNCSA and Towson University where I revived the Towson University Tuba and Euphonium ensemble with the help of my good friend and colleague Dr. Chris Cicconi. I have taught at the Performing Arts Institute in Kingston, PA in the summers and have reviewed auditions for NYO-USA and NYO2 since their inception. I have offered masterclasses at the Tidewater Brass Festival, Eastern Music Festival, Ithaca University, University of Oregon, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, UNCSA, and Towson University and work with elementary through high school students regularly through my work at the NC Symphony and in my private teaching. I have also worked with adult students of all ages and always enjoy meeting members of the extended brass family.
