Triple Play had a lovely recital, where several students came up to me in the halls days later sharing how much they enjoyed the concert and really loved the program we selected and the instrumentation. Where are we off to next?

March also has me working with different Youth Symphonies such as Pasadena Youth Orchestra, Northridge Youth Orchestra on March 5th, Temecula Valley Youth Symphony on March 6th and Olympia Youth Philharmonic for upcoming performances. Witnessing how much these horn students improve in their horn sections is so rewarding. The goal is always to have fun and enjoy making music while continuing to improve and develop further as a young artist.
