“I found that the more I practiced, the better I played and the better I played, the more I enjoyed it.” -Adolph ”Bud” Herseth
As an educator, I began my journey while being a student myself at the University of Texas at Austin. Beginning with one student, my studio grew to 20 by my senior year. While studying at the Yale School of Music, I taught undergraduate lessons to Yale College students and joined faculty at Cheshire Academy, where I served as Adjunct Instructor of Brass for four years. Since then, I've taught students of all ages ranging from 10 - 92 years old.
Being an advocate for music education for all, I've taught in the Yale Music in Schools Initiative, Colburn Center of Innovation's Jumpstart Program, and Colburn Fortissima Program. My personal testimony about music education can be read in my published article titled, "Mirrors and windows: Reflecting and expanding worldviews in music education"
I've served as a guest clinician at the Tidewater Brass Institute, Furman University, Boise State University, Arkansas State University, International Trumpet Guild, and Frenchwoods Festival for the Performing Arts. Got questions? Contact me below!
