“I have seen Dorian work in-school in the classroom and outside of schools as a
studio teacher. His private trumpet students are some of the without a doubt the
finest trumpet players I have seen in my career.. In a jazz jam I recently attended, I
was truly inspired when student after student of Dorian’s took the stage, stood next
to Dorian and with their mentor at their side they played with confidence and style. I
am genuinely amazed at Dorian’s ability to draw the very best from his students and
know that he will continue to blend that one-on-one methodology with his classroom
and ensemble duties.”
