Want to learn trumpet from a Berklee College of Music graduate? I'm always excited about educating the next generation of versatile trumpet players. There is so much nuance to the trumpet, and every player interprets and executes it differently. No two trumpeters are alike! My education was steeped in jazz studies and my teaching style is as well, even as a beginner I'll be teaching you the blues scale. I want you to feel my love of the trumpet. To pick up the horn is to go on a journey that involves so much of the body and mind. Discipline and curiosity govern my daily practice, and I hope to inspire you to want to pick up the horn as often as you can!
About James C.

I graduated Berklee in 2015 and worked on and off cruise ships around the globe till the pandemic hit. Since then, I've moved to Manhattan and decided that my five years of travel and daily playing may have prepared me enough for the big city. It's still too early to tell but things are going well so far! I'm still young, 28, and I've been told that beginners and younger players find me relatable. It wasn't long ago that I was in their shoes and I still see myself from that perspective, for that reason I'm convinced of the importance of patience and encouragement. Not from a position of weakness or strength, but from a position of passion. We are all students. I did a small two week tour in Denmark, mainly Copenhagen last October 2020 with Oleksandr Kolosii. We recorded an album while I was there called Multicolored which can be found on Spotify/Apple Music. I am also a drummer, keyboardist, and singer. I have some experience in production and mixing and mastering. I have a home studio setup where I record trumpet tracks remotely. Some of my remote projects have made it to Apple Music/spotify. My Mom is a professional violinist and violin teacher, my dad is a drummer.
