Teaching since:

I am a recent graduate of shenandoah conservatory where I spent my time focusing on the abilities needed to become a lead trumpet player. Durring my time there I had the honor of working with members of the nations Millitary jazz ensembles including: The Army Blues, The Navy Commodores, and The Airmen of Note. This past summer I was a member of the 2016 Disneyland All American College Band where I worked with artists such as Wayne Bergeron, Gordon Goodwin, Ron Carter, and many others. In our lessons, we will be working on expanding your potential as a trumpet player through range excersizes and breathing/endurance techniques that have been taught to me by many lead players all over the country.

Michael was a great instructor for my 11 year old son. We decided to lake lessons after playing a few years with instruction from Dad. He was ready for a new challenge and probably a new instructor. We asked Mike to give him some Jazz lessons. It was so fun listening to them play together almost immediately. Michael is very patient as a teacher and made it fun for my son. We would still be taking lessons today if we lived in the same state. I highly recommend Michael as an instructor for any level of student.
