About

Trumpet/Flugelhorn

My  goal has been and is to be a versatile trumpet/flugelhorn player and  play many styles very well.  I started playing professionally in  nightclubs when I was 13 years old and am still pushing myself musically  by accepting musically challenging offers.  I have been fortunate to  perform throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, Japan, Israel,  Turkey, and Russia with many great artists.  Whether playing in the lead  chair, solos, or section, I adapt my style of playing to enhance the  musical performance that I am placed.  In addition to playing with many  groups I am involved in recording sessions, arranging, as a musical  contractor, and clinician for educational institutions.                         


Composing/Arranging & Musician Contracting

I  enjoy composing and arranging music for projects no matter what style of  music.  My strength is understanding the musical concepts one is trying  to convey and arranging the music to enhance the project.  Playing with  so many different artists has helped me to understand what does and  does not work in live performances and in the studio.  Applying this  knowledge to arranging saves everyone a lot of time, frustration, and  money.   This is also true with getting the best musicians for one's musical project.  Through my musician contracting services I will put together the appropriate musicians to make your music project (live or studio) a success.

Teaching

I offer private lessons, workshops, or sectional instruction for ensembles.  I enjoy sharing the knowledge I have attained while performing  in a variety of settings.  My teaching goes beyond just playing music  and incorporates all aspects of being a professional musician on and off  the stage.  I developed a special workshop called "Funk 101" which is for both musicians and non musicians to understand the concept behind funk music, how to compose and perform funk music.  This workshop can be adapted from a 3-hour workshop to a number of days.
