I'm a passionate and experienced clinician and educator. Before I owned ACB, I was the Professor of Trumpet at University of Southern Maine and I have given clinics and masterclasses all over the world. I love working with student musicians and would be happy to set up clinics and guest artist performances with you! Now that I'm settled into KC, I'm doing more local clinics and guest artist performing. If you're interested in hosting me, please contact DGL Artists!
I have studied jazz improvisation privately with greats Clark Terry, Jerry Bergonzi, Kenny Werner, Chuck Findley and engaged in extensive studies with Hal Crook and Charlie Banacos. My primary classical instructors include studies with Robert Stibler of the University of New Hampshire, Benjamin Wright of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and with Edward Carroll, formerly musical director of the New York Trumpet Ensemble.
