"It is my ultimate goal as a musician to be an inspiration to other musicians and those who aspire to be. As an instructor, I want to prepare my students for a professional career giving them attention in all areas of focus –teaching what I have learned as a musician and as a student. As a professional musician, I want to display the important skill of being able to play with other musicians, bringing the best out of them through my innovative ideas and approaches in rhythm and technique -all while meshing together as one sound."
