Today was something of a day off, music-wise, so I spent some time “under the hood” tinkering with the website and preparing for the upcoming redesign. It’s interesting to see how things have updated since last I spent a lot of time working on websites, which was my day job for a number of years. I’m enjoying the re-education.

Tonight’s Gigs: March 19, 2023 – Big Band Double Duty @ Birdland

This evening, I have a doubleheader at Birdland in NYC!

At 5:30pm, we perform with the Jihye Lee Orchestra. Jihye is a remarkable composer, and this music is really something special! Please come and check it out.

Then, at 8:30pm and 10:30pm, Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra take the stage, continuing a residency which is now in it’s 28th year!

Tickets and more information on both of these at:

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!
