Since my graduation from the University of South Carolina, I have enjoyed a varied career in performing many genres of music around the world and in the United States. I have performed pop music while sailing around the Mediterranean Sea, toured with a Broadway show in the United States, and, recently, playing jazz in New York City. My journey has also led me to learn about the physical practice of the trumpet, which has given a totally new approach on how to instruct students in a highly personal way.

I am confident that I can contribute as your trumpet instructor because of my varied career and the skills I am able to teach. Specifically:

• The traditional approach to trumpet playing, which builds a strong musician who can play with others
• The physical practice of trumpet, which takes into account the movements that need to be engrained in order to play efficiently.
• Jazz improvisation
• Commercial music style (rock, Broadway, salsa, pop, etc.)
• Music theory and aural skills

About Hunter B.

Hello!

My name is Hunter, and I am a trumpet player living in Queens! I'm originally from Nashville, Tennessee, but I've been all over the place the past few years. I studied music at the University of South Carolina, and two weeks after graduation I was on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship sailing around the world playing in the band! I moved to New York in October 2017, and have been touring with Broadway shows Elf and Fiddler on the Roof fir the past several years. In between touring, I play in regional theatres, symphony orchestras, and teach my private studio!

Hunter is an amazing teacher. My 8-year-old looks forward to her lesson every week. Hunter is patient and very kind and finds a way to help my daughter progress even when she has trouble paying attention. He never puts any pressure on her or expects more than she can do. I recommend Hunter without reservation to anyone looking for an excellent teacher who is confident, encouraging, and engaging. He goes beyond the extra mile to help my daughter excel and I know he'll do the same for you.

Hunter is a wonderful teacher. I began trumpet lessons with some basic knowledge of reading music but I had never picked up a trumpet before. Hunter's 8 lesson beginner lesson plan is so great for a beginner. It comes with music, fingerings, and follow/play along youtube videos that help me practice outside our lesson together. Hunter is a nurturing teacher that works with your skill level and will cater these lessons directly to your needs. From lesson one I was playing music! I would highly recommend this teacher.

Hunter taught me beginner trumpet and he's no doubt one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very rigorous without being intimidating and puts great emphasis on encouragement so that you feel motivated to practice and get better for the next lesson. You can tell he's a very disciplined musician himself and the atmosphere of the lesson is always relaxed. You know you can ask him any question you may have as many times as necessary. Without ever neglecting technique, he had me trying tunes from the very begining so that I could see how technical exercises immediately transfer to making enjoyable music. He has many different tools to tackle a specific blockage you may have in the learning process.
