Thanks for stopping by. I teach Saxophone, Clarinet, Jazz Improvisation (all instruments) and work with beginners (middle schooler to adults) to advanced students. Many of my former students have gone on to study music in college and play professionally. I have a studio in Durham and also teach at Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. I graduated from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA.

My wife, Valerie Courreges and I started the Durham Jazz Workshop in 2012, a teaching and performance venue. For more info on the DJW programs, visit:
