As a trombone player, my passion has always been with music. Throughout my musical experience, I’ve come to realize that most music careers fall into two categories: performance and education. I hope to find a healthy balance of the two as a collegiate music educator.
FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
Competing in the Bands of America St. Louis Super Regional Championship was my favorite memory from my high school career. Performing among the top high school marching bands in the nation was a true honor.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
Former head coach of the Bryant High School baseball team Kirk Bock has made the biggest impact in my life. He taught us how a strong mind is the most powerful tool we have at our disposal, which has forever instilled in me a sense of discipline, work ethic, and diligence in everything I do.
