To take the classical mindset and to propel it forward in the secular world. To be a strictly classical musician is difficult. Therefore, we must go forward and perfect the art in a way that will continue to remain relevant as time passes.

 

Professional Statement

As a classical Euphonium Performer, I am an adamant freelance musician and teacher. Striving to teach and perform at the highest degree possible.
