Education: Bachelor of Music Education & Teacher's Certification - The College of New Jersey + 30 credits towards Masters of Music Performance on Trumpet - Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers New Brunswick
Performance Experience: I have played in various wind ensembles and orchestras my entire musical career, including CJMEA Regions II in high school. From 2012 - 2015 I played repiano and soprano cornet in the Imperial Brass ensemble. Currently I play 2nd cornet in the Eastern Wind Symphony, an active community wind ensemble consisting of dedicated and hard working musicians from NJ.
Teaching Experience: 5 years public school Instrumental Music teaching + 15 years private music instruction
Teaching Philosophy: I believe that anyone can learn or accomplish anything they desire as long as they have the drive and willpower to practice and succeed. My goal is to get my students to realize their potential through positive reinforcement and encouragement. This is done by introducing concepts and little gold nuggets of information and techniques to my students, who then take those gold nuggets home and develop them throughout their week of practice. Anything is possible.

Get to know Neil Winkler

I started my musical journey in the 4th grade on trumpet, the instrument that looked the coolest to me at the time. (I still think it is!) After playing in band and taking music lessons all throughout middle and high school, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from The College of New Jersey in 2008. I began teaching private music lessons in 2006 while attending college, and have continued to teach to brass students of all ages for over 15 years. I believe that anyone can achieve anything they want as long as they have the willpower and drive to succeed.

In addition to teaching, I currently enjoy playing in The Eastern Wind Symphony, an active community wind ensemble consisting of dedicated and hard working musicians from NJ. Aside from teaching and playing music, I work in the technology department at the Ewing Public Schools. Outside of work, I enjoy camping, going to the beach, and spending time with my girlfriend and dog.
