Thanks so much! We are here on vacation and appreciate the availability of Bill. My daughter has a region audition when we get back home and she needed help with her scales.

The trumpet is a colorful and exciting instrument played in many styles of music throughout the world, from jazz and classical to funk and soul to reggae, afro-beat, and Balkan music. In addition to covering the basic technical requirements of the instrument, I'm particularly interested in the many genres in which the trumpet can be found, and I like to focus on the styles of music that most interest and challenge my students. I have been playing trumpet for more than 18 years, and I teach my students valuable brass exercises based on lessons I learned under the tutelage of John McNeil, Laurie Frink, and Walter White. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and trumpet calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility.

The trumpet was the very first brass instrument I ever played. My older brother played it, and I looked up to him and wanted to be like him. This was the main reason I chose the instrument in fourth grade. Although I only played the trumpet for two years in school, I have continued playing off and on throughout my music career.

I can help any brass student learn the basics of sound production, tone quality, breath support, intonation, tonguing and slurring, and scales.

I have 5 years of experience teaching beginner and intermediate trumpet. In my lessons I like to incorporate the use of conversational solfege and the Arbans method, the rest is up to you!

Students are my number one priority. I believe in teaching outside the book, to give each one of my students an individualized plan to reach their goals. I will always go above and beyond to steer you in the right direction, and to make your music experience last a lifetime.

Students can expect to be appropriately challenged with repertoire, in a supportive, communicative environment. I am happy to work on school repertoire, pop tunes or music from the standard repertoire. I believe in efficiency and getting the most out of your practice time. We all lead busy lives, I will teach you how to accomplish your goals with the time you want to invest.

Jess is not only an amazing French horn player, but a dedicated teacher as well. I first met her when we both attended the University of Delaware, where I got to work with her as a fellow musician. She has amazing discipline when it comes to studying and practicing, and she brings that dedication to her teaching as well. With her bachelor's and master's degree in Performance, she has a vast array of techniques and exercises at her disposal that she is excited to share with any student who is willing and ready to learn. As a teacher, she will take the time to individualize a students' needs and goals. She loves to share her passion for music and will share in her students' success.
