New Chapter at Schwob School of Music | April 2017
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues and my students at the Kennesaw State University School of Music for a wonderful 10 years at this fine institution. I have worked with talented tuba and euphonium students who have represented the music program at the highest level. I have learned much from my esteemed colleagues in every department and studio. It is with some sadness that I will end my tenure at KSU to begin a new chapter with a different university. I am thankful that Dr. Paul Dickinson will continue his role as an outstanding artist-teacher for the KSU Tuba/Euphonium Studio. I am also thankful that my director, Dr. Stephen W. Plate, has been an amazing advocate for me during his short time thus far at KSU and will support Dr. Dickinson throughout his tenure. I will be joining the faculty at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University this fall as their new tuba and euphonium professor. I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues and transforming my new students into outstanding artist-teachers. I will continue to keep my residence in Kennesaw to allow me to maintain my private tuba and euphonium studio, coach sectionals in Cobb County, and to freelance throughout metro Atlanta. I am ready for the next chapter of my journey.
