Welcome to my new site!

Well...finally I got a web site up.  Only took me, uh, like 10 years.  I guess it's never too late for an old fart trumpet player to get his act together.  Thank you for checking it out.

Anyway, I will try to keep my calendar events up to date with places I am playing.  I also will eventually be putting some short video lessons on trumpet and jazz, and some thoughts on the music business, and various other stuff that comes to mind.  I'm also going to try to guilt some of my musician friends into letting me interview them.  We'll see over time what happens.  I will probably even comment from time to time about things like where to get killer Mexican food.  Stop by once in a while!

Cheers!

    I found your site while looking at the ASU jazz dept page. I have a degree in music history and lit and was studying ethno when a job with good pay came along. That was just over 40 years ago. Last year I met a retired jazz teacher in Surprise and he talked me into pulling the trumpet out of the closet. It has been challenging but I am getting better. Wish I had soloed in the jazz band in college instead of memorizing Hindemith. Never new how fun music can be. Thanks for your website.
