UNO Jazz Camp 2023

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be joining the faculty for this year’s UNO Jazz Camp at the University of Nebraska Omaha, from June 5-9, 2023. In addition to teaching trumpet masterclasses and coaching ensembles, I’ll be playing lead trumpet in the faculty big band – the Great Plains Great Big Band – which performs daily during the week. The band/faculty is stacked with wonderful musicians and educators. I’m honored to be included and thoroughly looking forward to it.

If you’re in the area and would be interested in attending the Jazz Camp, it’s not too late. Registration is open until May 31, 2023. Please visit for more information.

Huge thanks to Willie Murillo for the recommendation and Pete Madsen for the invitation. I’m excited to play with you both!


I claimed, a week or two ago, that I was imminently getting back to making my long-form YouTube videos. This has been briefly shelved, once again, as I’ve realized that I need to get properly ahead on my preparation work to make them happen sustainably in the long term.

The upcoming series I’m planning is going to be a 30 day range practice challenge. This sort of video needs to be made everyday, and it’s not possible to batch create ahead of time, because then my own results from the practice will be skewed. Since I have to record and edit daily, I need to template, schedule and streamline the process as much as possible.

Nonetheless, I will be back soon. The preparation work is happening now.

Expanded Trumpet Lesson Availability

From April 2023 onwards, I will have expanded availability for teaching trumpet lessons. If you’re interested in taking a lesson but have assumed I’m too busy, or have contacted me in the past and I haven’t been able to accommodate you at that time, please get in touch and I will do my very best to fit you into the schedule.

The “Teaching” page has more information, but I am happy to teach in-person, if you’re in or are visiting New York, or online if you’re based elsewhere. I have space for both regular students and occasional consultations.

There is a Lesson Request Form or I can be reached though the Contact page on the website. I hope to hear from you soon!
