My lessons create a fun and motivational learning environment that promotes goal setting, good habits, positive self esteem based on tangible accomplishments, and an appreciation for the rewards of diligence and perseverance. My services include music lessons in trumpet, jazz improvisation, music theory, jazz theory, and audition preparation. I am currently the Principal Trumpeter in the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra, Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Grant Park Summer Music Festival Orchestra, Principal Trumpet with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, and former Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. I have performed with the Chicago Symphony and Milwaukee Symphony. I Hold a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of South Carolina and I am a certified band director with 5 years band directing experience. I particularly enjoy audition coaching, having won three international symphony orchestra auditions myself. My students have jobs in symphony orchestras and military bands around the world. I use audio/video, computer, and MIDI technology to aid in the learning process and to enhance the enjoyment that comes with making music.

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to the advanced level. This is pretty much standard practice within the brass family :)

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

I specialize in brass instruments, and have 20 years of experience. I can teach you everything from sound production and control to crossing from mere technique into meaningful music. We can talk about everything from a trumpeter's leadership role in the orchestra to handling the stress of a competitive instrument. There's a certain trumpet "swagger," and I can help you *earn* it.
