I love the trumpet, and it's my life mission to help others to experience the transcendent joy of music and the excitement of playing a brass instrument. I take pride in my ability to quickly convey the fundamentals of trumpet technique to beginning trumpeters so that they can get the full enjoyment from playing early on. I perform regularly in a wide range of genres from jazz and funk to pop and reggae, and it's important to me to cater to the individual musical interests of my students. I have been playing trumpet for more than 24 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, among others. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and trumpet calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility on the instrument. I also focus on the stylistic nuance of jazz, funk, classical, and the many genres that feature the colorful and majestic sound of the trumpet.

Students begin with the Rubank method and add in Arban's. A strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of scales, ear training, sight reading, and music theory. Along with this we have fun playing the music student enjoys.

I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance. Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes! Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!

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.

I am a professional orchestral trombonist and I have been an active brass teacher for almost twenty years. I have played in orchestras across the USA and Europe, including the Cincinnati Symphony, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and many more. I aim to give my students a solid understanding of the technical skills required to play a brass instrument, and to share with them the musical knowledge I have gained from studying with some of the best brass teachers in the world.
