As a teacher, nothing gives me greater joy than inspiring students to engage in lives rich with musical activity. As a trumpet professor at Texas Tech University my teaching focuses on developing a team atmosphere where engagement with musical concepts and attentive support extend outside of the private lesson. Constantly incorporating topics from the wider musical curriculum and university experience, I see trumpet lessons as a platform for creating connections among all aspects of a music degree.
