Education

I have been teaching for over ten years, specializing in working with advanced, professional, semi-professional and college level musicians. I’ve done masterclasses, clinics, residencies and private lessons.

My main focus as an educator is on heightening the awareness of my students of all of their talents, and on trying to coax those talents into their deepest and fullest expression. 

My experience as a teacher/resident faculty member/adjudicator include:

  • Betty Carter Jazz Ahead at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Resident Faculty 2013 and 2014

  • James Madison University Cultural Connections Artist-In-Residence, March 16-21 2015

  • Thelonious Monk International Jazz Drum Competition 2012, Submissions Adjudicator

  • Thailand International Jazz Conference 2014, Faculty and Adjudicator
