Milanos, Eastern AZ College Adjunct Faculty, 16 years
I have performed with several professional orchestras and currently play principal with the East Valley Millennial Orchestra here in Mesa/Gilbert. My trumpet-playing is featured on several of their albums including "O Holy Night" and "To Be American".
From 2007-2010, I taught collegiate-level private trumpet instruction at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher. I am published with the International Trumpet Guild Journal Jr. and I have a trumpet sextet published through Hickman Music Editions, which has been performed by colleges all over the country as well as at several International Trumpet Guild Conferences
I currently co-write piano accompaniments and transcriptions, and manage the production of music for Lindsey Stirling Music, musicnotes.com, and Hal Leonard
While I love to perform, one of my greatest passions is teaching! I'm really good at instilling confidence in my students and assisting those who want to take their playing to the next level. Even ONE lesson can make a difference. I look forward to working with you!
