Dennis Jeter

Dennis Jeter began playing the trumpet at the age of 16 after attending a Wynton Marsalis concert in Washington, DC. Soon after, he was accepted into the Peabody Preparatory program in Baltimore, MD to study with Wayne Cameron. In the spring of 1987, he graduated from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC with honors and later was enrolled as a computer science major at the University of Florida on a full merit scholarship. While attending the University, he participated in their marching band and held the principal trumpet chair in the symphony orchestra. In the Summer of 1987, Mr. Jeter was the recipient of the first Wynton Marsalis scholarship to study music at the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, North Carolina. The following year, he transferred to the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, NY to study trumpet with William Vacchiano. While at the Manhattan School, his interest in the music industry broadened and he soon became very active in the business of music. In the Fall of 1990, Dennis was sponsored by William Vacchiano to become a Yamaha Young Performing Artist.
