Pat Harbison

Jazz trumpeter Pat Harbison currently teaches jazz history and improvisation and conducts ensembles at Indiana University. He has been on the faculty of the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Workshops since 1976. Previously he taught trumpet and jazz at the University of Cincinnati.

Pat became intent on a career in music in his early teens, when he became a protégé of jazz education pioneer, Jamey Aebersold. Jamey exposed him to the magic of jazz and instructed Pat in improvisation, arranging, and composition. After graduating from the University of Louisville, where he studied trumpet with Leon Rapier, he spent time free-lancing in New York City and studying with Carmine Caruso. He returned to his native Indiana for graduate study in jazz with David Baker and trumpet with William Adam. Pat's other major teachers include John McNeil and Dominic Spera.
