About me

I have been involved with music for over 20 years and have played trumpet for a majority of that. My desire to teach stems from my interest in helping others learn how to find their passion in music. I have taught at several schools as a music coach, music director, marching band coach, visual caption head and have given private lessons. I marched with the world class drum corps, the Santa Clara Vanguard. I also served in the United States Marine Corps as a Trumpet Instrumentalist for eight years and performed across the country. One of my favorite hobbies is to compose and arrange music. I have music published with the Robert W. Smith Music Company and have my own publishing company. I hope that all of my experiences and passion will be a great help to my students and inspire them to become lifelong learners of music!
