Trumpet can be a difficult instrument, but it is my main philosophy to approach the instrument in an effortless and enjoyable way. Music is an amazing way of expressing ourselves, and the process of learning a new instrument or developing one we already know, is a rewarding process that I enjoy helping to cultivate. The trumpet is an extension of our body, and I believe because of this, the instrument is closely linked to individuality and personal expression. It's also important for to me tailor lessons to students interests and desires in order to develop a love for music, and a passion for brass playing.
I have a Bachelor of Music from the University of Calgary, and have studied under trumpet teachers such as Gareth Jones, and Johnny Summers. My trumpet career started after absolutely falling in love with the instrument in middle school, before pursuing music in a more professional capacity throughout high school and my university degree.
I have gotten the opportunity to play and perform in various ensembles such as the Calgary Youth Orchestra, Calgary Youth Jazz Orchestra, and as a solo freelance musician with my own quintet. I have had playing experience across all brass instruments, but trumpet remains my main instrument. With experience in classical and popular genres, I have a wide experience in performance and pedagogy of varying styles. As a part of my musical journey, I have also had the opportunity to work with artists and groups such the Count Basie Orchestra, Brian Lynch, Melissa Aldana, Ted Nash, and Gordon Towell.
