I have been a music educator for over 25 years and have taught on many levels from young children and school agers on through to college level, professional players and senior citizens. My main areas of expertise are saxophone(s) though I have taught many instruments including, guitar, bass, piano, oboe and drums to name a few. I have also done research on horns both vintage and new.
I have been in music education for 25 years and I have written and published in the subject of professional music education.
The Dallas Morning News, Dallas Business Journal, Marketing and Higher Education Newsletter.
Bachelor of Music Education, Hartt School of Music - The University of Hartford.
I enjoy teaching and playing saxophone immensely.
I am always trying to improve my teaching technics and of course, learn a little something new every time I play the horn.
Saxophone was invented by Adolph Sax and made its debut at the Paris World's Fair in 1867.
