I started playing trumpet while in elementary school in Des Moines, Iowa, and playing/practicing was my top priority through high school. I pretty much hung up my horn in college, and have only recently, in my early 50s, picked it up again. I live on Orcas Island, which is a small place, but I feel incredibly fortunate that Orcas is home to some amazing musicians, including trumpet players Steve Alboucq and "Uncle" Willie Thomas. They have inspired me to focus most of my practice these days on the basics of jazz improvisation. Willie's website,, is a wonderful resource that I've only just started to draw upon.
