What to Expect
I am a dependable, dedicated, perfection-driven individual who knows how to communicate properly and keep my promises. A client of mine can expect exactly what we agree to, whether it's processional and recessional music for a wedding, horn licks for a new song in the works, or sight-reading charts on the gig. I am a professional and take my job and reputation very seriously. I will always do my best and do everything in my power to come through on an agreement.
I am a professional musician, with a Master's degree in Trumpet Performance and undergraduate degree in Music Production. I play all genres of music, but I consider myself to be classically trained. I have played trumpet for over 20 years, and have had the pleasure to perform for millions of people during my career. I have played as soloist with regional orchestras, wind ensembles and marching bands, and most recently finished my Master's degree at the University of Alabama. During my tenure at Alabama, I served as the lead trumpet in the Jazz Band, principal trumpet in the Huxford Orchestra and the Alabama Wind Ensemble, and performed as a soloist at the 2015 Sugar Bowl with The Million Dollar Band.
In addition to my ensemble playing, I have dedicated my life to being a successful soloist on the trumpet. I play in Broadway-style musicals around the Tuscaloosa and Birmingham area, as well as play in various churches for weddings and special events. If you need a dependable trumpet player who has solid musicianship skills, look no further!
Along with my trumpet playing, I am also a music producer. I run a small studio in the Moody School of Music, where I write and record music for local Tuscaloosa musicians. I have worked with Justin Oliver (American Idol), Thomas Davis (Apollo Top Dog), and many local rock bands in town. I record solo artists, rock bands, jazz combos, movie score orchestras, and pretty much everything in between!
