I have been playing trumpet for 20 years, and have been teaching sine 2008
The key to this instrument is its simplicity! Learn to have unlimited technique to play any style.
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.
I come from a long heritage of great brass players. Students can expect legitimate classical discipline/improvisation combined with a broad expertise in various styles/traditions and all other facets of the music industry. I like to have fun as well.
First I will ask you some basic questions. Then I will immediately begin sharing information / training you. The fastest road to your success is my goal.
