About Bradley Rathe
Get to know Bradley Rathe
I have been involved in music since childhood, starting to play the trumpet in 5th grade. I enjoyed Band and music in general throughout high school, going on to major in Music Theory at the University of Notre Dame and Music Education at Elmhurst College.
I have been lucky enough to perform with the Band of the Fighting Irish at venues as varied as the Alamo and Yankee Stadium. On starting my second degree from Elmhurst College, I performed with the Wind Ensemble at Symphony Center in Chicago and experienced teaching trumpet and horn at schools in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
I currently teach middle school band at a school here in the western suburbs, continue to play French Horn in Elmhurst University's Symphonic Band, and am pursuing a Master of Music Education degree at Vandercook College of Music.
I look forward to meeting you to help you play trumpet or horn!
