Education

Since 2011, I have been teaching at Lebanon Valley College as an Adjunct Professor of Music. My responsibilities include teaching applied lessons on double bass, bass guitar, jazz improvisation, and directing the jazz combo.

I also have a home teaching studio. My private students’ successes include acceptances into major collegiate music programs; winning the bass spot for PMEA All-State Jazz band; awards including “Outstanding Soloist” and “Best Rhythm Section” at Cavalcade Jazz Festivals; and winning auditions for district jazz band and district orchestra.
