Anne is a pro in L.A. and has toured with Guns and Roses, recorded and performed with Sheena Easton, Don Henley, K.D. Lang, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder and many others.
Anne also plays lead in my student Rex Merriweather's big band. They are known for big trumpet sounds. That shows you Anne is one mean player.

I received this email from Roddy and I had to include him.
Hi ya from Wales UK! Look at Roddy's website
How are you?
Would you consider adding a trumpet sound clip from me to your pupils page? I know we've never met but it was only after reading/playing your books did I get the range thing!
I assure you that it was only your book (and Mr. Jacoby's) which gave me the help I needed.
If another teacher put up a page with clips on I would not consider sending a clip.
I would be honoured if you would consider me a pupil (albeit a remote one!) : )
Yours Roddy o-iii

Our dear friend Tommy Loy has passed away.
Tommy Loy was very well known in the Dallas area. Tommy was the trumpet player who played the Star Spangled Banner as a solo at every Dallas Cowboy game for 22 years (Including a Super Bowl).
Tommy was a great big band player but his love was Dixieland.
Tommy had a radio show every Monday night at 7pm on KEZY radio at http://www.KXEZ.com It is our hope that they continue to play some of Tommy's old recordings.
These clips are from a CD with Jon Stutler on Clarinet. The CD Razzmajazz is available at http://www.razzmajazz.com

Rex is a strong lead player who can be heard all over LA. He also does some work in Vegas. Rex is constantly pushing the limits of the trumpet. From Chase to Classical up 2 octaves nothing is off limits.
These are clips from Rex's new CD called Chased. Rex overdubbed all of the trumpet and keyboard parts.
Rex can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings.
