Degrees and Certifications:
This will be my 16th year teaching music in Central Bucks School District, and my 6th year teaching band in the elementary schools. I was fortunate to be the founding band director in CB South High School when it opened in 2004/2005. While at the high school I developed a competitively successful marching band and jazz band program, quality instrumental ensembles such as the concert band and symphonic band, and I also taught music theory, AP music theory, and music technology. In 2012/2013 I transitioned to the elementary level where I very much enjoy introducing 5th and 6th graders to musical instruments and being in the band!
I am a graduate of Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pa with degrees in Music Education and Music Performance. I received my Masters in Music Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa. I attended high school nearby at Upper Moreland High School in Willow Grove, Pa. When not teaching you can find me performing on my saxophone with "Class Act," a Bucks County based wedding and party band (find us on the internet), as well as in the Doylestown area with local jazz musicians.
