Donald M

Instruments:

Donald's eclectic approach to music is one best described as unique. Raised in an environment where music was as much a part of life as breathing, Donald developed his musical identity like a child goes through his adolescent years. Growing up in the Ifa tradition, Donald’s first musical experience was with traditional “African Praise Music” playing the drums and singing. Later he learned to play the trumpet through the Cleveland Hts. School system and quickly gravitated toward jazz. By the age of 18 Donald had performed with Terence Blanchard, John Clayton, Jeff Clayton, Bobby Watson, and Winard Harper. After graduating Cleveland Hts. High and Cuyahoga Community College simultaneously, Donald was awarded a scholarship at the esteemed Oberlin Conservatory. There he studied with jazz greats like Marcus Belgrave, Billy Hart, and Gary Bartz. While pursuing his studies Donald continued to demonstrate his musical talents. He performed with such greats such as, Gerald Wilson, Billy Hart, Marcus Belgrave, Jimmy Heath, Eric Lewis, Frank Foster, Roscoe Mitchell, Donald Byrd and the Jazz Heritage Orchestra to name a few. It was at this time that Donald became aware of his gift for composition. He was commissioned to compose the piece Stark Winters for the independent film Man Cry. He also composed a four movement suite for the Jazz Heritage Orchestra entitled Spirit of New Orleans. Upon graduating from Oberlin, Donald furthered his education as a graduate student at Rutgers University. There he was mentored by, the legendary William Fielder. Since his move to New York City, Donald has had the honor of performing with such greats as Geri Allen, Victor Lewis, Frank Lacey, Michele Rosewoman, Cecil Brooks III, Mike Mossman, The Drifters, Eddie Palmieri, Conrad Herwig, and Frank Sinatra Jr. Donald, also will be in the new film by producer Michael Hausman (The Firm, Broke Back Mountain, Amadeus) called Downtown Express where his song Juanita from his new album The Mothers will be heard. In March of 2009, Donald released his debut album "Spiritualtiy" with his cutting edge band SIGHT. Here, he has revisited his spiritual roots, combining the music for the Orisha (African deities of the Yoruba people) and jazz. Each song on the album embodies different aspects of the Spirit, be it love, femininity, masculinity, aggression, destiny or wisdom. These energies represent different aspects of God, and through this music, the creator is praised. SIGHT has now recorded their second album that will be released in March 2011 called, "The Mothers".

Jonathan L

Instruments:

Growing up in the bustling suburbs of New York City, trumpeter Jon L was introduced to music at a very young age. Originally a classical player Jon began his studies in Nashville, TN where he attended Vanderbilt University.  While there Jon found his voice in jazz under the tutelage and support of studio musician and composer Billy Adair.  Jon then became a stalwart in the Blair Big Band as well as a huge proponent of the jazz program at the Blair School of Music. In 2008 Jon moved back to New York to attend New York University and to study full time with master pianist Mike Longo.  Since returning to New York Jon has had the opportunity to play at many of New York’s finest venues, such as The Blue Note Jazz Club, The Rockefeller Center Gardens, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Nokia Theater and BB Kings Blues Club.

Reut R

Instruments:

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music careeer has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever greatful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... And to many of these shows we travel together with our young daughter :) (yes, my husband is also in the band). Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to advanced level, but only beginner level for Piano. I would love to work with some of the younger students not only on learning to play the Piano but also about the joy that music can give you!

Instruments:

Welcome to Mr. B's studio!  I am a twelve year veteran instrumental music teacher who truly loves educating young musicians.  I have performed and taught all over the country as a trombonist and educator.  Some of my career highlights include performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Tales & Scales Inc., Ray Charles and his orchestra, as well as working with numerous orchestras, chamber ensembles, and jazz ensembles in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  My biggest joy comes from my students achieving new heights in their own playing.

Jonathan C

Instruments:

I am a professional trumpet player in the New York area. I am a versatile and adaptable player equally comfortable playing small group jazz, lead trumpet, salsa, funk, classical and theater. I am originally from Vancouver Island, Canada and have also lived in Toronto. I moved to New York in 2012 to attend the Juilliard School. I enjoy having a lot of diversity in my schedule, and I am often juggling many different projects. I lead my own quartet as well as the genre-defying Heavyweights Brass Band. Artists and groups I have performed with include Dave Douglas, Seamus Blake, Paquito D'Rivera, Giovanni Hidalgo, Nikki Yanofsky, Kermit Ruffins, and the Toronto production of Jersey Boys. These days I play regularly at New York venues such as Dizzy's Club, Birdland, Smalls, Smoke and the Jazz Gallery.
