"Methodical in Your Practice & Creative in Your Performance"
“Teaching music has been a passion of mine for a long time. My teaching style is reflective of my quote- ‘methodical, yet creative.’ I don't believe that there is one true correct method of playing the trumpet. I teach the generally-accepted basics, but beyond that I encourage my students to develop a style unique to them. I teach how to achieve a full, rich, expressive sound in any register. Furthermore, how to take that rich sound and apply it to a variety of genres and styles from solo music to ensembles, to playing lead in a big band.” -Russ
