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.
