I'm a Bill Adam student who loves the trumpet!! Anyone who wants to get the most out of their practice time, needs to visit the Adam Tribute Web site. He's been, by far the biggest influence on my trumpet playing and the way I try to live my life!! For anyone looking for ship work, I help hire players for some of the cruise lines. I'm currently playing on the road with the Russ Morgan Orchestra(led by Jack Morgan), which keeps me in good shape! (Lot's of blowing). I love playing with this band! I feel very fortunate to follow in the footsteps of the many wonderful trumpet player's who have played in this band, as well as the great ones that I get to play with!! Many of the member's are alumni from Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, etc.! I'm playing on a fantastic trumpet made by Tony Scodwell! he's the best trumpet maker in the business,(hands down). He's also one of the greatest player's that I've ever heard. Make sure to check out his Las Vegas Big Band!! I'll try to help anyone with trumpet questions!!
