Assistant Professor of Music

Department of Music

UT Brownsville

As a musician and teacher, I am passionate about my work and strive to inspire and empower students to utilize the lessons that they have learned through their studies to become more engaged, productive citizens who will positively impact their communities and the world. My objective is not only to prepare students for their careers by improving their technical and practical skills, but also to actively engage them in their individual learning processes and to provide them the opportunities to develop the critical thinking, listening, problem-solving and communication skills needed to become independent and lifelong learners.
