Lessons With Jeff
Though Jeff is a busy person, he loves to teach. Simply contact him, and he will schedule a time a time with you!
Online lessons are very effective, and are no less useful than live lessons. There are details that might be lost over the internet, like SOME overtones in harmonic series, perfect timing synchronization across the web, etc. The loss of these few factors actually facilitates MORE detail on the things that do come across internet, like rhythm and all other timing choices, breathing, musical phrasing and all other music making choices, sound choices, practice techniques, success path planning, life choices, etc…
Whether you want to spend time with him to learn his Fearless Performance approaches, some of his brass-playing simplification techniques, or chat about your next career steps and make a plan to achieve your goals, Jeff is only an email away.
Jeff also does masterclasses online. Whether he speak to your horn studio, brass studio, school band, or entire music festival, Jeff connects to and inspires all. He is available for master classes on music’s technical areas as well as the often neglected Fearless Performance aspects of music making.
Jeff lives and teaches in Bloomington, Indiana. He is always available for a lesson here. Also, if you see that he will be performing in your region of the world, Jeff might be available to teach, time permitting. Feel free to contact him for info about a lesson now if you will be in the Bloomington area, or if you see that he will be near you.

“In October 2009, Jeff presented an online master class to Virginia Commonwealth University horn majors via live video conferencing. From the comforts of his own university, Jeff was able to lecture and perform in addition to hearing my students play and offer them comments. The students are still buzzing about what they learned, in addition to telling their colleagues about the “streaming video master class with Jeff” which was the first of its kind at VCU. The audio/visual quality was fantastic. Collaboration between our two schools was easy and professional. This proved to be a very practical (and economical) way of exposing students to learning opportunities with an internationally prominent musician. We hope to do it again very soon!!”
