About Derek

Whether you're just starting out, been playing for a few years, or thinking about getting back into playing, I can help you to get the most satisfaction out of your instrument.

I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota with a master's degree in trumpet performance, where I studied with David Baldwin. I completed my undergraduate work at Brandon University, where I studied with Alan Ehnes and Joel Brennan. I have been fortunate to work with other teachers too, in lessons and masterclasses, such as Ed Bach, Ronald Romm, James Thompson, Bobby Shew, Bob Dorer, and Karen Donnelly. I've worked with the Band of the Ceremonial Guard in Ottawa, the Winnipeg Symphony, Kenwood Symphony, Minnesota Oratorio Society, and numerous pit bands. I was a trumpet instructor at Penhold Air Cadet Summer Training Centre in Penhold, Alberta, and have also taught lessons and clinics throughout Manitoba. I currently teach elementary band at at two local elementary schools.

It's never too late or too early to take an interest in music. Regardless of your age or skill level, I would love to hear from you!

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.

Ear Training

I have two degrees in music. I've studied jazz improv, and as such have had to rely on my own ear for transcribing and learning songs. I've taught classes in ear training at a music camp.

Trumpet

I have two degrees in trumpet performance (Brandon University and University of Minnesota). I've studied trumpet pedagogy in school at the undergraduate and graduate level. I've been teaching privately for a number of years now, including at music camps, and clinics.
