Plus, we bring all intstruments and equipment ourselves – which makes it a piece of cake for you. We’re not cheap, but we’re worth it! Big promise. We are looking forward to play for you.

Composition & Arrangement

In the past I have been fortunate to arrange for a few great artists and for instrumentations varying from studio and jazz orchestra to jazz ensembles and pop bands. Among those artists are the Grammy-winning Metropole Orkest, Grammy-nominated percussionist Bobby Sanabria and Broadway singer Keith White (A Bronx Tale). I’m looking forward to receiving more commissions in any musical genre.

Teaching

I love teaching music ever since I started at 17. In the past I have been teaching saxophone, flute and clarinet players of all age and level and was collaborating with many music schools over the years as well as private students. My focus on teaching music culminated in the creation of the Tuscany Jazz Workshop which is going into its 8th edition in September 2021. Hit me up for private lessons, I am available for instrumental lessons as well as music theory, ear training, arranging, composition and Jazz piano.
