Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
As an experienced jazz trumpet player of 8 years, my work has lead me to play with some of the greatest of the music such as: Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Sean Jones, Wycliffe Gordon, and many more. Along with jazz studies, I am well versed in music styles such as classical, pop, R&B, and soul, and have proficiency in technique, music theory, ear training, and composition. In these lessons, not only will we learn about improvisation, jazz history, and style, we will also learn about forming your own sound, getting gigs, and working the music industry. In weeks, you can play jazz standards and songs from your favorite recordings!
Struggling to learn chord changes? Can’t figure out the blues? Learning how to swing? Shoot me a message and we can go from there!

Teaching since:

I am a professional trumpet player of many styles and my experience in music has taken me across the world. I currently play in multiple small jazz groups, and big bands, and run two of my own groups that play styles such as Jazz, Pop, Funk, R&B, and Soul. Due to my musical knowledge, courage, and versatility, I have been invited to play overseas and at prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, and the many venues occupied by Jazz at Lincoln Center.

I teach students of all ages and skill levels.
I wish for you to learn musical versatility and the ability to catch on to music quickly, the things that many don’t teach. Through my years of playing I have gained knowledge and advice from the biggest names in the music industry about many topics covering the actual playing of the instrument to playing in a band and obtaining gigs.

Not only will we learn about music, but also powerful life lessons and great qualities we should develop not just as musicians, but human beings. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and become a better person/musician!
