Dorian has lived and loved his musical experiences from a very early age. Starting on piano, he soon moved to trumpet. With many strong influencing teachers along his path, he has developed into the trumpet performer and educator of music that he aspired to.

After completion of highschool, Dorian received his associates degree from Onondaga Community College and earned two BM degree's from Rowan University in Music Education and in K-6 education.

Keeping busy, Dorian has just finished his sixth Carnival Cruise contract working as a Music Director and a lead/solo trumpet performer. During the cruises, he has worked with numerous Vegas-style production shows, dance bands, blues bands, jazz sets and numerous "fly-on" acts.

Dorian has now completed his masters degree in Trumpet Performance at Miami University of Ohio and has moved to the Metro-west MA area to begin his teaching career, while maintaining his active trumpet performance lifestyle.
