The trumpet is one of the most demanding yet rewarding instruments. A dominant voice in classical and jazz; the trumpet can be a section or solo instrument. Vince began playing trumpet in 1998. He attended lessons at elementary school. Vince soon won principle chair in school ensembles; later with select county and state wide ensembles. He competed in annual solo competitions performing classical and jazz trumpet throughout middle and high school. In 2003, Vince began studying trumpet privately with Mark Klose; later with John Maguda. Vince primarily studied from methods including Arban's Complete Conservatory Method, Schlossberg's Daily Drills and Technical Studies, Clarke's Technical Studies, and Stamp's Warm-Ups & Studies. Vince also studied classical solo repertoire by by Hindemith, Haydn, and Kennan among others. While cultivating classical foundation, Vince developed jazz chops by listening, transcribing, and studying many jazz greats including Louis Armstrong, Clifford Brown, Donald Byrd, Miles Davis, and Maynard Ferguson. Vince continued studying trumpet through undergraduate and graduate college with Rebecca Coupe Franks, Dennis Wasko, and John Swana. Vince has also attended master classes held by Matt Gallagher, Craig Morris, Claudio Roditi, Randy Brecker, Malcolm McNab, Scott Holbert, Bijon Watson, Jeff Curnow, and Alison Balsom. Vince is a strong improviser, which has served him well in the commercial music scene. He is a frequent performer with cover and original bands. In the recording studio, Vince often lends his horns to a wide variety of genres including pop, indie, surf-rock, ambient, and soul. Vince is an all around trumpet player and soloist; he doubles on other brass instruments including flugelhorn, cornet, slide trumpet, and mellophone. At his home teaching studio he has many brass instruments as well as a library of method books and repertoire.

I am joyful to be a part of some truly spectacular results from my students! My lesson plans are designed for all ability levels ranging from complete beginner to professional performer. They will help you with tuning, range, endurance, rhythm, but most importantly keep your chops (lips) in healthy condition (no-one wants to hurt after playing music!) I promise results. My Trumpet students learn songs they have always wanted while learning how to sound great. - Proper breathing/compression - Playing resonant without playing louder - Articulation styles - Range development (Low and High notes) - Personal interpretation - Brass maintenance routines - Live performance tips - Lead/Jazz/Big Band music - Classical solo/Concert Band/Wind ensemble repertoire - Simple-to-Complex Rhythms - Soloing over chords/modes - Flexibility All my students learn: - Sight reading - Music Theory - Ear training

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.
