Fall 2015: Student Teaching!

I am so excited to begin my final undergraduate semester at the University of Houston with Student Teaching! For my first 7 weeks, although I’m starting much earlier, I’ll be at Glenda Dawson High School in Pearland, TX, and then I will transition over to their feeder middle school, Berry Miller Junior High. In December, I’ll (finally) have my degree!

I can’t wait to learn and experience so much! My two schools were my top picks for a reason! All the teachers I get to work with are master teachers and extremely good at what they do, so I’m sure I’ll get to learn a lot! :) Keep checking back for updates as the semester goes on!

National Intercollegiate Band

Hello everyone!

I am happy to announce that I have been selected to play in the 2015 KKΨ & TBΣ National Intercollegiate Band with guest conductor Joseph Hermann, Director of Band at Tennessee Technological University, and guest composer Julie Giroux at the University of Kentucky in late July! I’m exceptionally honored to have been selected!

The only bad news: I haven’t touched my instrument in about a month… and I have to give a chair placement audition the night of the first rehearsal… I guess I should go practice…


I ran into this video on Facebook today and I literally laughed out loud. I had been doing some arranging earlier today and so all I could think about while watching this video was, “How long did it take them to input all of these notes?” They probably broke Finale or whatever software they were using, too. My favorite part is whenever the left hand sounds like a jack hammer.


Hello everyone!

My website is going to be undergoing a huge transformation within the month of May. The original no longer has a purpose, so I’ll be changing, tweaking, and adding a few things here and there. Thank you for your patience and check back every once in awhile for updates!
