Dylan is an enthusiastic instructor whose passion for music started at nine years old when he picked up the trumpet. He began his marching career in 2011 with the CNS Northstars. Since then, Dylan has pursued music education, as well as performed on trumpet, mellophone, and as a featured flugelhorn/trumpet soloist with the White Sabers for several years, including their 2014 DCA Championship season. He has been on staff as a trumpet tech since 2018 and took on the role of Assistant Director in 2020. As a Central NY native, Dylan believes in building his local marching arts community. He has assisted multiple area programs with brass and visual instruction, as well as administrative duties. Outside of the marching arts, Dylan currently plays with neo soul group, Pat Tato, and other various artists in the Syracuse area.
