Wether you are a beginner, intermediate, professional, or just want to learn for fun, I offer a wide range of lesson topics and approaches to add to your trumpet skills! I hold a doctorate degree in jazz studies, masters degree in jazz studies and a bachelors degree in trumpet performance. For the past 12 years I have been performing professionally in a wide range of ensembles that include concert band, big band, brass quintet, salsa band, funk band, orchestra, trumpet ensemble, rock band, show band and more! While studying trumpet and music with me, I will create a detailed plan according to your experience level and aspirations on how far you would like to expand your music career! We will work on fundamentals, different genres of music and talk about how to apply these to real world performances, gigs and teaching situations.
