About Bennett

Hello! My name is Bennett and I am originally from Central Wisconsin. I graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 2013 with a double major in Trumpet Performance and Jazz Studies. I moved to Chicago in September of 2014 and have since completed my Masters of Music in Jazz Studies at DePaul University.

I like to provide my students with a wide range of knowledge, including strong fundamentals on the instrument, music theory, and appropriate repertoire to enhance the skills we have been working on. I have a wide range of skills that I have acquired over many years of performing and studying in school. I have performed in numerous jazz ensembles, wedding bands, symphony orchestras, brass/wind ensembles, and broadway pit orchestras.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding lessons. I work hard to provide a unique lesson experience in order to address each student's specific needs. I am excited to begin working with students and look forward to helping you achieve your goals as a musician!

General Music

I have a double major in Trumpet Performance and Jazz Studies from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. I am currently finishing up my Masters in Jazz Studies (trumpet emphasis) at DePaul University; this degree will be completed in June of 2016. I have previous experience of teaching junior/high school students as well as beginning college level students. I also have 10 years of piano experience. Although I have not gone to school specifically for general music education, the skills I have acquired through my degrees and professional life outside of school provide me with the knowledge and understanding needed to teach general music.

Music Theory

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies, I have taken numerous theory courses. These courses covered areas including the solfege system, scales/modes, harmonic structures, etc. I also have experience in arranging/orchestration and composition. Additionally, am I also experienced in jazz theory.
