Led the roughly 60 member trumpet section for two years as co-section leader. Worked in sectionals to improve

partnered work with my other section leader and team of 5 other field staff members.

Collaborated with my brass quintet between my junior and senior year of college to travel to the schools and
perform for elementary students. Presented and performed at Wildwood Elementary in Amherst for our quintet
