    ABOUT ME:
    I am a New York native and I moved to Arizona in 2005.  I currently live near downtown Gilbert with my wife, our son, and our dog, Polly.
     
    EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
    I studied the double bass at Mannes College of Music in Manhattan under John Dewitt, and I graduated with a bachelors degree in music education and performance from The Crane School of Music.  I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a masters degree in educational leadership.
     
    PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND:
    I began teaching orchestra in Syracuse, NY within the Liverpool School District.  I moved to Arizona in 2005 and taught for the Deer Valley School District for several years.  Since 2009, I have been teaching orchestra for the Chandler Unified School District.  I also perform professionally on a regular basis. 
     
    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
    In my classroom, it's never just about music. We're learning how to set goals, take responsibility for ourselves, meet deadlines, and collaborate in a positive way with a variety of different people. Teamwork is a very important part of what I teach in an orchestra class. As students excel on their instruments they gain skills and techniques, but they also learn that to achieve in life takes work and dedication. At the core of it all, they learn that work can be fun, and that achieving goals is rewarding.

My Education and Professional Background

I studied the double bass at Mannes College of Music in Manhattan with John Dewitt, and I graduated with a bachelors degree in music education and performance from The Crane School of Music. During my years at Crane I held the principal chair in the symphony orchestra, the chamber orchestra, and the jazz big band. I also performed in the Orchestra of Northern NY alongside my bass instructor, John Geggie. I studied violin, viola, and cello as secondary instruments in college. I began teaching orchestra in Syracuse, NY within the Liverpool School District. I moved to Arizona in 2005 and taught for the Deer Valley School District for several years. Since 2009, I have been teaching orchestra for the Chandler Unified School District. I also perform professionally on a regular basis.
