I've been playing trumpet professionally since I was 15 years old, that's over 23 years.  (holy moley, really?)

In that time, I've studied with some the best trumpet teachers/players in the world: Bill Carmichael, Jay Saunders, Jim Manley, Lynn Nicholson; all the while carefully analyzing, extracting and distilling down the information I was given, looking for the common denominators.  

I teach in a structured, systematic way that is custom tailored to your unique strengths and weaknesses and prevents most bad habits before they start.

I'm experienced with and enjoy teaching both absolute beginners and advanced techniques for experienced players.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

As an adult/experienced player, you will learn how to:

  • Increase your range

  • Improve your sound

  • Develop practical practice habits that work (even if you're busy)

  • Increase your efficiency and flexibility

  • Use your airsteam/tongue level correctly

  • Other custom goals based on your specific needs

As a child/beginner, you will learn:

  • Proper fundamentals

  • How to rapidly excel past all your peers

  • "Tricks" that help you improve quickly

  • That playing the trumpet is FUN
