ABOUT

I play baritone saxophone and flute in the colony high school jazz 1 program. I am NOT 18. but i do have enough experience playing my instruments to feel confident enough to play outside of my programs.

I started playing saxophone in middle school after hearing some tracks from some of my dad's albums. but my career really started, coming into high school and being shown an album by my teacher Steven Ragsdale. Something Else by Cannonball Adderley really propelled me to seeing what my potential could be at. So discovering him, I actually became a really heavy jazz listener and i fell in love with it. I practiced myself into sore lips and raw tongues with my sax almost every night trying to be as great as my favorite players, and I still do. And I've practiced myself into being in the top jazz program in my district formerly lead by trumpeter James Rocillo. I play gigs for my school, but they're way too far in between, and I want something more serious.
