I've been teaching since 1997. My experiences include HS marching, concert, and jazz bands, middle school concert band, and elementary bands.
Saxophone is my main and best instrument. I have been playing since fourth grade. Professional performing experiences include performing in the pit in the American Music Theater and Dutch Apple Dinner Theater, playing sax with horn powered cover band, Back In Motion, and performing and soloing with The New Holland Band, the New Holland Jazz Band, The Bainbridge Band, and the Big Big Jazz Band, all Lancaster County based organizations. I have also been the music director of the Bowmansville and assistant musical director of the Bainbridge Band. I continue to perform on occasion with these bands, and look forward to future performing opportunities.
I earned my Bachelor in Music Education with instrumental concentration for Mansfield University. I have over 75 additional credit hours that include music composition and theory, classroom teaching techniques, music software, sound reproduction, and general teaching pedagogy.
I take great pride and pleasure in my position with the Susquehanna Township School District. I look forward to many great years with this program.
