As part of my FREE FLOW Trumpet and Brass and Alexander Technique teaching studio, I offer Clinics and Guest Artist Residencies around the world, nation and region primarily for Trumpets and Brass, but often for all musicians, theater, dance, physical education students. As needed, I weave in a combination of coaching, lessons, sectionals and Alexander Technique. Performing a recital, concerto with university ensembles, performing with the local symphony, liturgical musician for churches are all options as time/facilities permit.
I am a Conn Selmer Artist/Clinician and have been honored to have been chosen as one of 5 representatives of the Bach Sound. With 60 days notice, they can help support my residencies.
