Hey, my name is Dylan. I started playing trumpet in middle school band and have now been playing for ten plus years. I did a BM in Jazz Performance at California State University Northridge where I studied with some amazing trumpet teachers like Wayne Bergeron, John Lewis, John Daversa, and Howie Shear. Then, I went on to do a MM in Performance at Berklee School of Music where I had some incredible playing opportunities like leading a jazz combo in the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy and performing at the World of Business Ideas convention in Madrid. Inside and outside of school, I have experience playing almost any genre and feel comfortable working on reggae, ska, flamenco, jazz, bossa-nova, afro-cuban, classical, soul, rock, and electronic musics.
I produce and write my own music too. I use a lot of Ableton Live and Pro Tools and I'm especially specialized in recording and mixing trumpet. I've done scoring, audio editing, sound design, and beat making and would be happy to teach any of those skills or even how to use a DAW.
All in all, I believe the combination of my professional experiences and my educational experiences gives me an abundance of resources to pool on when teaching. I'm just excited to be able to share all the knowledge and tricks I've learned with others!
