About Brian

I love to teach and I love to play. Fundamentals are key but the most important technique for my students is to understand how to practice. I am always interested to hear what you're working on or ready to start something new. If you're new to trumpet, coming back from a hiatus, or looking to win your next audition lessons are available every week.
