Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

My many years of playing and teaching experience make me uniquely qualified to jump start your trumpet playing so you can achieve your musical goals. Having studied music at the University of Michigan with the renowned first chair of the Boston Symphony, Armando Ghitalla, I can impart the necessary trumpet technique, so you can win the first chair in your school band or prep you for college auditions. I've played freelance trumpet in the NYC area to include a national tour with a Broadway show, TV jingle recordings, jazz, rock, funk and lots of classical gigs. Together we can accomplish great things musically that will last a lifetime.
