Clinic/Workshop Information:
I have presented clinics at top universities around the world, including Northwestern University, University of New Mexico, University of Bangkok, University of Louisville, Stetson University and many others. My clinics are fun and highly interactive. I teach people how to connect the sounds in their heads to the fingerings of the notes on their horns, and how to hear and make sense of the complex harmonic language used in jazz. I put things in very simple terms which everyone can understand. People leave my clinics energized with new ideas for practicing and a renewed optimism for their own playing.
