What to Expect
I am available to play church music, orchestral music, background music for weddings or other events, pit orchestra music, and etc. If you put a piece of sheet music in front of me, I can play it for you. I'm coach-able during rehearsals and have no problem following a conductor. I also have an electric cello setup for experimental ensembles or any genre of music that requires an amplified cello sound.
Guitar, Bass Guitar, and Drums:
As a guitarist, I can cover lead and rhythm parts for any genre of music except death metal. As a bassist, I am capable of playing both under the direction of a conductor and as a member of a modern ensemble. On drums, I have a similar professional skill set. I sight read and can offer to help chart out songs if needed. I have professional equipment that won't quit on stage, and I have the experience to be able to learn songs quickly and be ready to perform in only a couple of days. I am also capable of playing in pit orchestras or other kinds of large ensembles.
Hello! I am cellist from Atlanta, Georgia who is currently studying cello performance at the University of North Carolina, School of the Arts with Dr. Brooks Whitehouse. I began learning music at nine years old and started privately studying cello with Spencer Brewer at fifteen. Aside from cello, I am also an avid guitarist, bassist, and drummer and I perform with several local bands throughout Winston-Salem. I love combining my learned classical and jazz techniques with a variety of different genres. I'm a multi-instrumentalist that regularly plays with orchestras, pit orchestras, churches, cover bands, original bands, and can play anything between classical music and extreme death metal.
