The flugelhorn is the brother of the trumpet and is a beautifully sounding instrument that can be used in many different situations. Of course, the flugelhorn produces a very mellow and luscious tone, different to the trumpet's more majestic and powerful timbre. Although the trumpet can be played softly with a darker sound, the flugel can add a nice color contrast to a performance or recording situation. Whether you need to play it in a big band setting, pit orchestra, or want to incorporate it into your own small group, becoming proficient on the flugelhorn can add a whole new dimension to your musical voice. We will work on all aspects of technique and how to utilize the flugelhorn's pedal register. I'll assist you in developing your own sound concept, and provide exercises and practices that will strengthen your flugel chops and help you to develop a strong command of the instrument. Out of the 30,000+ hours I've invested into my musical practice over the past 2 decades, 2/3 of them have been devoted specifically to trumpet and flugelhorn playing. I've earned Bachelor of Music, Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees all with concentrations in Trumpet Performance and I've been performing, recording and teaching internationally as a trumpeter based out of New York City for over a decade. My trumpet/flugelhorn playing has appeared on 30 albums, 230 YouTube videos and live on stage with hundreds of highly-acclaimed artists from across the globe. It's earned me high standing in 7 trumpet-based competitions: 1st place in the 2007 International Trumpet Guild Jazz Solo Competition, finalist status in the 2009 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, finalist status in 2014 Juilliard Artist Diploma program, finalist status in the 2020 Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra's 4th Trumpet Vacancy, finalist status in the 2021 U.S. Navy Band Commodores' Jazz Trumpet Vacancy, and recipient of 2020 & 2021 Downbeat Student Music Awards. It's also allowed me the opportunity to pursue and earn my Doctor of Musical Arts degree with full-scholarship, plus paid assistantship.
