Skill Level Beginner to Advanced

I am a jazz saxophonist and woodwind doubler from New York City now based in Wollongong. I've worked with beginner students for ten years, as well as adults and advanced jazz improvisers. I'll make a lesson plan tailored to your goals and interests, no matter what your skill level is- getting to the next level should be fun! I have a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from Michigan State University and a Master of Music in Jazz Performance from William Paterson University of New Jersey. My teachers have included jazz giants like Rodney Whitaker, Vincent Herring, Rich Perry, Cecil Bridgewater, and Etienne Charles. As a professional musician I've toured internationally and played with Grammy winning artists like Gordon Goodwin, John Clayton, and Christian McBride. I won "Best Latin Group" and "Outstanding Arrangement" in the 2018 DownBeat Magazine Student Music Awards. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email with any questions.
