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.

Experience in the area

I have been in music education for 25 years and I have written and published in the subject of professional music education.

Bachelor of Music Education, Hartt School of Music - The University of Hartford.

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy teaching and playing saxophone immensely.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I am always trying to improve my teaching technics and of course, learn a little something new every time I play the horn.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Saxophone was invented by Adolph Sax and made its debut at the Paris World's Fair in 1867.
