As a saxophone player living in the Columbus OH area, music has been a source of fascination and excitement for all of my life. As a musician it is my dream to share that joy with others and to help kids experience the same enrichment to their lives that music has been to mine.
My professional goals are twofold. One, to be an instrument repair technician as part of an active repair shop. And two, to perform saxophone at a professional level in both Jazz and Classical settings, both for my own enjoyment and to continue my growth as a musician.
Professional Experience: Jazz band director and woodwind instructor for Lower Merion Township's Summer Band camp; Student teaching at William Penn High School with their band program; long term General Music substitute in the William Penn and Upper Darby school districts; Salesman for Music&Arts in Worthington, OH; Private saxophone instructor for thirteen years.

I was both a daily and long term substitute for elementary general music, as well as middle and high school band.
Our camp offered weekly lessons to kids in 5th through 8th grades as well as participation in Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Orchestra with three hour-long rehearsals each a week. I began in June of 2002 as the woodwind instrumental instructor, and in 2004 took over as director of the Jazz Band where I would organize, select repertoire, and rehearse the group for six weeks, culminating in two performances.
