I began teaching in 2000. Currently, I teach 5th Grade Band, 6th Grade Band, 7th/8th Grade Band, 7th/8th Grade Jazz Band, High School Jazz/Salsa Band, & High School Band. Plus, I conduct the Jefferson College Community Band.
"Prepare to a position to transition" I'm constantly trying new strategies to help my students reach their maximum potential. Each exercise, handout, etc. is created trying to make music as easy and FUN as possible.
In 2011 & 2015, The Jefferson High School Concert Band was selected to perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association Convention. Also in 2011 & 2018, I was chosen at the East Central #7 Music Educator of the Year.
Bachelor of Music Education from University of MO-St. Louis. Masters in Educational Administration from Missouri Baptist University.
Currently, I perform with the Funky Butt Brass Band (drum set). I'm endorsed by Vic Firth Sticks & Mallets. www.mlomusicpublications.com
