Jazz Ensemble I, II, and III, Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band.
I began my teaching career in 2014 and am now in my fourth year as the Head Band Director at Horizon High School! This year I am teaching three big band style jazz bands, our 145 member Marching Hawks, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble. You'll also normally see me at the Basketball Games running our super high energy Horizon Pep Band, and in the Spring Musical conducting the pit orchestra. I am all about student connections and fostering our band family community at Horizon. We always strive for excellence, to improve every single day, and to make great music for all to enjoy! Outside of Horizon, I perform across the Denver Metro Area with the Rocky Mountain Brassworks, the Colorado Brass, and freelance on the French Horn.
