Trumpet - Low Brass Instructor


I have been playing trumpet for 12+ years and have been a licensed music teacher for one year.  I attended Concord High School and then attended Indiana State University where I got my Bachelor of Music Education.  While at Concord I played in the Symphonic Band for two years and in the Symphony Orchestra for two years as well.  At Indiana State I played in several ensembles including; Concert Band, Marching Band, Basketball Band, Brass Choir, Small Brass Ensembles, Jazz Band, Jazz Combos, Symphonic Band, Symphony Orchestra and Wind Orchestra.  I currently play for churches and substitute in the Elkhart Municipal Band.

 As a teacher I hope to encourage my students to be the best that they can be, and to give them the motivation to teach themselves music outside of band and private lessons.  I do ask all of my students to practice a minimal of 45 minutes a day and log it in a practice log.  All of my students play different music; I do not use the same thing for each student.  My idea behind this is that each student needs different areas of improvement and that private lessons are for their individual needs and wants.
