What to Expect
Being flexible, I have performed both as a featured act and as simple background entertainment. I have performed solo saxophone on several occasions, and have several items of repertoire to prepare for a gig. If asked to play with another group, again I double on clarinet (both classical and jazz) and am comfortable sight reading most pieces of music.
I am currently pursuing two music degrees at FSU, one in jazz and the other in music education. I am involved in both the jazz and classical saxophone studios, and have performed in various ensembles for both, including big bands, combos, saxophone chambers, and traditional band settings. Furthermore, I have done work on clarinets for longer, as it was my first instrument, and currently double on that. I also possess several original jazz compositions, and have written arrangements of classical, jazz, and pop tunes for various gigs over the years, having played in restaurants, parties, weddings, and more. I am extremely flexible, and am willing to perform solo or with other groups (including my Jazzet available on this site). Looking forward to working with you!
Additional Booking Notes
In terms of classical set list, I own several full pieces of literature, as well as various etudes and small excerpts I am willing to perform. I am also versed in a strong amount of jazz standards, and am willing to provide a selection of both.
