I have been teaching trombone at Emory University since 1991. Typically, my Emory students are highly-motivated and highly-achieving individuals who are pursuing a professional career while retaining their passion for music and the desire to play their instruments better.

I also teach a private studio at my home in Tucker. In practice I like to stress the importance of good sound and fundamentals--how to understand the instrument kinesthetically.
One of my great passions is presenting clinics/masterclasses for brass students. These are basically group lessons. When students perform before their peers with instructor feedback, the experience can often have a greater impact than private study.
CONTRACTING - Music for All Occasions
As a contractor, I provide musicians for various venues: church services, concerts, weddings, receptions, graduations, etc. I hire only the finest and most professional musicians available. I believe that employers value the care with which I select players for events, taking into account not only players' abilities, but also personalities; because music is at its best when people work together.
My 25 years experience in Atlanta's music scene assures that I know the depth of field well in this regard. I am also proud to be a member of the Atlanta Federation of Musicians and hire only members of this professional organization.
