What's new!

Welcome to Trumpet playing thoughts!

November 1996, I began an embouchure change searching for a better and easier way to play. Since then, I have played many different ways and tried out many techniques. From my experiences, I have tried to write down some of my thoughts regarding trumpet playing. (I know there are many other viewpoints out there.)
My thoughts are based on the philosophy of making trumpet playing as simple and efficient as possible.

Currently I play lead trumpet for the Borderline Big Band.

Some of my favorite players are : Maynard Ferguson, Timofei Dokshizer, Bill Chase, Armando Ghitalla, Doc Severinsen, Chet Baker, Jerry Hey, Mike Lawrence, Al Porchino, Gary Grant, Snooky Young, Chuck Findley, Paul Webster, Jim Manley, Freddy Hubbard, Walt Johnson, Miles Davis, Bill Churchville, Lew Soloff, Mic Gillette, Jimmy Maxwell, Rafael Mendez, Tom Browne, Allen Vizzutti.

My trumpet is a Selmer Claude Gordon, .470 bore. Very free blowing, dark, lightweight instrument.
I play a custom mouhtpiece made by Gary Radtke.

I am a member of TPIN - Trumpet Players' International Network

Hear me play a well known song!

The statements on these pages are my opinions only. I am free to change my mind as often as I find appropriate.

Try everything and find out what works for you.
Let the sound be your guide.

Good luck!
