As part of my FREE FLOW Trumpet/Brass and Alexander Technique Teaching Studio, I offer Clinics and Guest Artist Residencies around the world, nation and region primarily for Trumpets and Brass, and increasingly for all instrumentalists and vocalists, theater, dance, and physical education students.
Capitalizing on my 30 years of teaching and performing experience, I’m comfortable weaving in a combination of coaching, lessons, sectionals and Alexander Technique for my classes and residencies as requested. Performing a recital, concerto with university ensembles, performing with the local symphony, and/or as a 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. Click ’07’ on the left side of the page. That will bring you to my photo, click there. With 60 days notice, Conn Selmer can help support my residencies.
Additional grant support is available through the International Trumpet Guild Chapter Awards
