About Me

I've been playing the trumpet since I was 10 years old, and it is one of the things that defines me and allows me to express myelf artistically.  Throuought my development as a student, and later as a professional player, I went through many different setups, searching for the easiest playing and most comfortable equipment that gave me the best sound, endurance, and playability.  I made some mistakes, but learned a lot of product knowledge about new and vintage equipment along the way.  I have some key insights in the world of high performance brass playing, having played many demanding types of gigs.  Particularly, fitting specific types of players with their preferred genres to specialized types of equipment is an overarching interest of mine.  I'm a big fan of Jupiter, Bach, Yamaha, and Schilke horns.  My favorite mouthpiece brands for advancing/professional players include Marcinkiewicz, Schilke, and Bob Reeves, and I like our own Giardinelli line for students.  If you have a brass related question, or anything else that has to do with music in general, don't hesitate to let me know!
