Trumpet Lessons for all ages and genres:

From Classical to Jazz

If you would like to learn to play the trumpet, I teach students from beginner to advanced level, at any age. I am a school band director (recipient of the Gold Apple Award), professional trumpet player & an award winning indie jazz artist (IMEA’s Best Jazz Artist 2014) and composer (Nothing Between Us & Dreamcatcher CDs). I have been in the music education field for over 20 years. My teaching education has been from elementary through college level in concert, symphonic and jazz band, along with private trumpet lessons. I have been a professional trumpet player for over 40 years & have had the opportunity to perform with well known artists (Aretha Franklin, Al Jarreau) & musical groups (Temptations, O’Jays).

I can teach you how to improve on your breathing, range, sight reading, trumpet technique and any other aspect you feel you need to improve. Lessons would include what to expect as a studio musician, a section player or an independent artist.

If you are interested in private lessons just click on the Contact tab on my website and fill in your information. Be sure to indicate trumpet lessons in the Comment box. I will contact you to set up a time at your convenience.
