Double Bass
Charleston, SC
University Of North Texas
I started playing bass in fifth grade in the Charleston public school system. From sixth through eighth grade I attended the Charleston County School of the Arts middle school, continuing on the the Charleston County School of the Arts high school. While there I played the Symphony orchestra for all four years and the Sinfonietta chamber orchestra for 10th through 12th grades. I also played with the Charleston Youth Symphony Orchestra from 8th through 12th grades. While playing with the CSYO I was awarded the second prize in both the 2017 and 2018 concerto competitions and first prize in the 2019 concerto competition. I attended the Brevard Music Center for the 2017 and 2018 summers. Through high school my primary teacher was Tom Bresnick, former principal of the Charleston Symphony and now I study with Jeff Bradetich at the University of North Texas.
