I'm excited to share that I am the new private horn instructor for the Lake Zurich school district! It's a constant struggle to find a lot of horn students in one area, and so far
it looks like I'll have a large studio of 10-15 young players whose band directors are incredibly supportive. I start teaching next week and I can't wait. You can read more about my private lesson policies by clicking on the new "Private Lessons" tab at the top of the page.
This fall is an exciting few months for me with some new challenges. On October 11 and 12th I'll be performing Rite of Spring with the Illinois Symphony, and in November I'll be performing with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra for the first time (not to be confused with Chicago Jazz Philharmonic.)
Speaking of CJP, please check out Orbert Davis' new kickstarter campaign! Chicago Jazz Philharmonic accomplished so many incredible things last year: a gorgeous collaboration on "Havana Blue" with the River North Dancers and our premiere performance at Symphony Center. Please help us reach our fundraising goal so we can hit the recording studio in November! Check out the kickstarter campaign HERE.
In November I will be featured as a soloist with the Midwest Philharmonic Orchestra. The performance will take place on Sunday, November 24th at 3PM, and the program will feature me on Richard Strauss' Horn Concerto No. 1. The orchestra will also be performing Beethoven's 7th Symphony. I hope to see you there!
