Dear Band Director:
I have been teaching
private lessons for lower brass students for over 35 years. My students have consistently won seats in
local, regional, and state band competitions, as well as jazz band festivals. Most of my students have
gone on to attend college with scholarships. In addition, many of my students have become professional
musicians, composers, arrangers, and educators. My students learn the bedrock of success: persistence,
determination, positive attitude, organization, follow through, and striving for excellence.
In addition to private teaching,
I have been conducting clinics for band directors all over the country for the past 30 years. When I work
as a clinician I don’t just come by, say a couple of cool things, and go. I work with you and your
students in an in-depth way to solve problems with innovative solutions. I am also available to work with
you and your band as a coach for sectionals, rehearsals and concert preparation.
My experience also includes serving
as an adjudicator nationwide for concert band, jazz band, orchestra, and small ensembles. I have a broad range of experience from playing and directing professionally to teaching at high school, middle school and college level.
Please call me at 719-238-7380
or e-mail me at email@example.com to schedule a session.
forward to hearing from you soon.
