I am a Classically trained Jazzer who loves to play anything and everything! Monette client for 5 years, underwent SEVERE embouchure changes at Interlochen Arts Academy under the direction of Ken Larson from whom I learned all aspects of trumpet playing and Bill Sears from whom I learned how to learn Jazz. I am very strongly schooled in the teaching and application of fundamentals, range building, technical studies, troubleshooting and have personnel experience in all of these areas. I have experience playing Lead, solo, small-group jazz gigs as well as chamber, orchestra, and studio gigs and stress my versatility. I'm also a huge computer nerd with a know-how in the recording arts area as well as all aspects of computer and media management!
