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.

My lessons create a fun and motivational learning environment that promotes goal setting, good habits, positive self esteem based on tangible accomplishments, and an appreciation for the rewards of diligence and perseverance. My services include music lessons in trumpet, jazz improvisation, music theory, jazz theory, and audition preparation. I am currently the Principal Trumpeter in the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra, Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Grant Park Summer Music Festival Orchestra, Principal Trumpet with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra, and former Assistant Principal Trumpet with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. I have performed with the Chicago Symphony and Milwaukee Symphony. I Hold a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of South Carolina and I am a certified band director with 5 years band directing experience. I particularly enjoy audition coaching, having won three international symphony orchestra auditions myself. My students have jobs in symphony orchestras and military bands around the world. I use audio/video, computer, and MIDI technology to aid in the learning process and to enhance the enjoyment that comes with making music.

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to the advanced level. This is pretty much standard practice within the brass family :)

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.
