I've been teaching students all over the world from grade-school age through adults for many years and thouroughly enjoy teaching and value the experiences shared with my students and the lessons I re-learn as well.  With Youngblood Brass Band I've been able to work with student ensembles of varies sizes and ability level as a clinician and individual instructor.  Our workshops typically are part lecture part demonstration part goup performance. 

I am able to instruct students on New Orleans styled music both traditional and modern (in the Youngblood context), critique Jazz band and combo/chamber ensemble and can also meet in a private lesson with a student to work on technical studies, etudes, orchestral rep and solo and ensemble requirments.
