2012, I traveled to conduct a formal concert with the Altius
Brass Ensemble. As you may know, this is a professional brass ensemble located
in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I met with individual trumpet players for
professional instruction. We even had a Master Class for trumpet students. This was a very
fulfilling endeavor for me and I'd enjoy doing more of this as opportunities present
the Fall Semester 2012, I began doing some consulting
workshops with trumpet sections at local high schools and middle schools in our
area of Houston. These workshops have added several new students such that my
private student body is growing nicely in numbers and ability.
Let me know if I can help you in this
fashion. Thank You! Jim
