He received his Bachelor of Science degree in music education from Pennsylvania State University, where he won numerous scholarships competitions. Powell received his Master of Music degree in jazz studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and he is currently working towards a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in saxophone performance.
