I'd like to invite all interested trumpeters to contact me for information about a Graduate Assistant position in trumpet beginning Fall 2018 at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo.

https://wmich.edu/music/academics/grad/assistantships

This assistantship is part of WMU's Graduate Winds Program. This program is unique at the Masterís Level and offers participants the opportunity to rehearse and perform as members of the Graduate Brass Quintet along with the Western Winds, a chamber ensemble of graduate students and their studio faculty mentors. The university and surrounding region provide many other professional and scholastic performance opportunities as well. Our current trumpet GA's did their undergraduate studies at the University of Arkansas and the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

Besides this assistantship, there are other GA positions in the School of Music in such areas as Music Education, Marching Band (staff, not performing), etc.

WMU trumpet faculty are Professors Scott Thornburg and Robert White, both members of the Western Brass Quintet.

Competitive assitantship and scholarship packages are available. Please contact me for more information. robert.white@wmich.edu


Here's a link to the trumpet listing itself (from last year, but info is expected to remain the same):

Just a word about some trumpet events this year - Distinguished WMU alumnus Alex Jokipii, Principal trumpet of the Buffalo Philharmonic will be on campus in February. Also, in March, our 3rd annual "Trumpet Day" will take place - guest artist to be announced very soon! Previous guest artists have been Rex Richardson, Terell Stafford, and Michael Sachs.

Just a bump for this post to mention that our recently graduated GA, Michael Gause, just won the position of 3rd trumpet with the Youngstown Symphony in Ohio. Great work, Mike!
