About Dustin

I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students develop a talent and love for music. I attended West Virginia Wesleyan College and earned a degree in Music in 2012. I am currently completing my thesis for my master's degree in jazz studies from University of the Arts.

I have studied classical, jazz, and contemporary music, and I enjoy incorporating some of every style of music into my teaching. Because I believe it is important to study both the fundamentals of trumpet and play music you love, each student's lessons will be custom tailored to their personal interests and needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I attended West Virginia Wesleyan College majoring in music and am completing my thesis to earn my master's degree in jazz studies from University of the Arts. I have been playing trumpet for 15 years.

Music History

I completed two semesters of classical music history for my bachelor's degree. Jazz history played a very important role in my coursework as well as my own research for my master's degree.

Music Theory

I first began studying music theory as a senior in high school, taking a year long course. I went on to take six semesters of theory during undergrad at West Virginia Wesleyan College. Many classes I took in grad school also related to music theory, including a Transcription and Analysis course where we applied harmonic concepts from classical composers to our own composition and improvisation, as well as thoroughly and accurately transcribing improvised solos.

Trumpet

I have been playing trumpet for 15 years. I have a bachelor's degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College and am completing my master's degree from University of the Arts, both with trumpet as my primary instrument.
