This year I am teaching weekly lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Alberta College Conservatory of Music. I also teach one Saturday a month. My students work on a variety of repertoire and perform several times during the year.
I am available to teach trombone lessons via videoconference. Contact me for more details.
I teach a lot of band clinics. Most are at Alberta College and out at Camp Nakamun. I am also available to come to your school or to whichever camp your school band goes out to. Please contact me for rates and availability.
Session Musician / Musician for Hire
I play with a lot of different groups. I have appeared as a guest soloist with the Cosmopolitan Music Society’s Monday Night Band, the Alberta College Percussion Ensemble and in numerous solo recitals. Some of the groups I’ve performed with include:
Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra London (Ontario), Citadel Theatre Orchestra, Edmonton Opera, Alberta Ballet, Alberta Baroque Ensemble, Foothills Brass, Capital Brass, Yardbird Suite All-Stars, ProCoro, New Edmonton Wind Symphonia, Edmonton Jazz Orchestra, Tumbao Vibe Salsa Band, King Muskafa, and Mad Bombers’ Society.
I take requests. I like my students to play music they know and like so I will often produce sheet music from youtube videos or CDs. I also arrange scores for a variety of ensembles and settings. Some of my transcriptions and arrangements include orchestral reductions for piano, pop tunes for trombone duet and concert band classics for brass and woodwind quintet.
Student Chamber Ensembles
Playing in a small ensemble is not only really fun but it can greatly benefit your development as a musician. I run student chamber ensembles whenever possible so if you want to play in one let me know and we can set it up.
