Performance opportunities & Trumpet instruction |
|Excepting a decade where I was attempting to become a bluegrass musician, I've played trumpet continuously since starting at the age of 8, in 1956. My first forays outside the school music system were at age 10, when I started tagging along with my Dad, who played tuba in several bands. Studied with Ira J. Wright, then principal trumpet of the Baltimore Symphony, and after my "comeback" with Patrick Whitehead, of the Monumental Brass Quintet. |
For the past three years I have been a bugler for the Maryland National Guard Honor Guard, in which capacity I have sounded Taps at approximately 900 funerals. I'm on first chair trumpet in the Maryland Defense Force Band, and a section player in the Blues in the Night Orchestra.
I work a handful of casual gigs every year, and would like to see that number increase.
