Willing to teach:
I'm currently teaching privately in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I travel to student houses and I also have a studio space where I teach. If you are interested in a lesson feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Rates are negotiable depending on location and scheduling convenience. I currently teach after school trumpet lessons/rock band at Claremont Preparatory School. I am a graduate of the Eastman School of Music with a degree in Jazz trumpet and Contemporary Media. I've also attend the Banff Center for the arts in 1999 and 2000.
My clinic would be on the the topic Making Music A Career. As a trumpeter in New York for 9 years, I can good advice on how maximize practice time, party time and professional obligations. I would also discuss creative ways to stay in touch with the curiosity that every musician fight to hold on to due to stress, economy and an empty date book.
