BM (Trombone) '01/MAT '02

5-Year BM/MAT in Music Education

I’m originally from Levittown, PA and teaching music has given me the opportunity to travel the world. I have taken my bands and orchestra to Europe 5 times in the past 7 years. I conduct the Greater Princeton Youth Orchestra, through which I have had the great opportunity of collaborating with several high level professionals including members of the Philadelphia Orchestra and New York Philharmonic. UArts was, for me, an atmosphere that was more like a lab and not a school. If you take the time to learn about all the opportunities that are around you, you will be prepared for just about anything. I have been successful working with just about every ensemble out there, from elementary ages to professional musicians.  In addition to my work in music, I am a competitive powerlifter and hold three world records.
