ABOUT

I play clarinet, alto and tenor sax. Jazz is my favorite, but I am flexible. I played in a classical orchestra in high school, small jazz groups and open mic in and around Boston and tenor sax in a big band called Take Jazz led by Steve Dickerson ( a retired member of the U.S. Air Force Band). Read music fairly well. Currently, I play clarinet in the Wachusett Community Band and at Chaibo Cafe in Fitchburg with Eddy Troxler. I am studying advanced jazz saxophone with Kenji Kikuchi at the Joy of Music Program in Worcester.
