Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Christian and I’m a trumpeter, composer/arranger, and educator based out of Denver. I picked up trumpet and music seriously fifteen years ago, though I had many years of experience banging on pots and pans before that! In the time since, music has taken me all across the country and brought me many amazing opportunities; from performing the National Anthem alongside the US Army Herald Trumpets at the 2015 NCAA basketball final, to hearing my sound forever pressed into vinyl and sold across the country. My hope as a teacher is to provide students with the technical skills and mindset that will allow them to thrive in situations like those and find the same joy that I have playing music.

In 2017 I earned my master’s degree in trumpet performance with a jazz emphasis from the University of Denver, and prior to that I received my bachelor’s degree in jazz from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. While attaining those degrees I also focused on becoming a more well-rounded musician by learning to compose/arrange, associate music theory with my playing, and learn how to approach music of any genre. In addition to the standard course load of music theory I also served as a teaching assistant in sophomore level theory at DU for my two years there.

I hope to hear from you soon and pass on the “secrets” of trumpet!
