Classes ranging from the fundamentals to advanced performance

I believe

Music is for Everyone

Music is a language anyone can learn. It is a language that can transcend politics, tragedies, race, creed, theology, and borders. Music can be a great equalizer and an even greater friend. It touches the heart and soul  in ways that we as human beings are still trying to comprehend. I believe the ultimate goal of music education is to not create perfect musicians but to help our children, our neighbors, and our community have a greater understanding of the world around them. 

A Passion for Music

I have been fascinated with the idea of creating harmony through sound my entire life. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of Tennessee at Martin in 2009 and my Master's Degree in Saxophone Performance from the University of Kentucky in 2011. Since then I have had the opportunity to teach hundreds of students and perform live all over the world.
