Age / âge


Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
I played violin from a young age, but when I entered middle school we were required to start an instrument. I thought it would be fun to start a new instrument, so since my dad is a trumpet player I thought it would be easiest just to pick up one of his old horns.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
My long term goals are to be able to make a career out of teaching trumpet and performing in chamber and orchestral settings.

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
I have always been a sports fan, and I continue to play sports as much as I can. My two favorite sports are probably baseball and volleyball.

It's surprising, but I'm actually the champion of MLB 99.
