Freelance Musician - Trombone
I am a semi-professional trombone player. My primary instrument is the bass trombone with tenor trombone as a close runner up. I earned a Master's Degree in Performance at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. I have experience playing all genres and have played extensively for big bands.
I lead the Metro Brass Quintet(MBQ). The MBQ has played for festivals, corporate events, and weddings. We have been fortunate to keep the same memberships for years at a time and our audience can hear the difference. You can learn more at the Metro Brass Quintet website.
I have been fortunate to perform regularly in the Des Moines metro with the CJC Big Band and Des Moines Community Orchestra in the past. I regularly sub for the Des Moines Big Band and with the Grand Avenue Ruckus while that group was active.
