John has studied with many teachers to refine his own playing and to improve his trumpet performance pedagogy. The Donald S. Reinhardt method of brass teaching has been a core component of his studies for 18 years and plays a key role in his ability to help his students resolve any issues they might have with the mechanics of playing a brass instrument in an accelerated timeline, enabling his students to perform both efficiently and with a positive mindset.
John has a strong passion for helping students achieve their musical goals with their instrument and equipping them with the skills and tools needed to express their musical message confidently and successfully to an audience.
