Jazz Ensemble I, II, and III, Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band.
I began my teaching career in 2014 and am now in my third 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 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.
During remote learning we will be using Google Classroom as the main communicator. All students should already be signed up for classroom, but just in case the codes are below.

We will be holding office hours throughout the week for questions, extra help, or whatever the student's need during that time. In correspondence with what the rest of Horizon is doing with office hours and to have less conflicts, each grade will be assigned a different day. However, if you would still like to come in for questions, you may come into any of the office hours regardless of grade level.
- Monday- Freshman 1:15-2:00 pm
- Tuesday- Sophomore 7:15-8:00 am
- Wednesday- No Office Hours
- Thursday- Juniors 8:00-8:45 am
- Friday- Seniors 8:45-9:30 am
For remote learning, we will be using Smart Music which is an online music software. Students can access their music, practice, record, and do assignments all in the platform which is free for the students through June 30th. Smart Music can be run on any computer that can run Google Chrome (chrome books work great!) and has a microphone, or through their iPad app(Also, great!).
