I have taught at both middle school and high school levels. I play at the professional level with the San Francisco Wind Ensemble.

Do you have references?

I can give you references when you contact me at sewellmusicsax@gmail.com. You can also view my care.com and takelessons.com profiles that show I have completed background checks and will have reviews. I also had my teaching credentials in UT so I went through all of the clearance for that as well.
