Navigating YOUR 21st Century Career in Music

Trumpet & Lifestyle Intensive

June 1-5


Have you ever thought; I really want to do this but I should do that?

Or, Is this really all there is?

During this five day intensive you will explore a new way to think about

your career and lifestyle goals and how to fuse them into YOUR own ideal life









1. Warmup and Fundamentals session

  • We will explore traditional concepts of Cichowicz, Stamp, Caruso, Arban, Clark,  Scholossberg, Vizzutti ,  Gekker, and  how to get the most out of them based on your needs
2. Career Brainstorming and how to fuse  your passions
  • There are more career options than orchestral musician, college professor or military band  musician
  • What else is important in your life that you want to be doing as much as music? How can you put them together?
  • Networking and how to get your ideas out there. 
3. Audition prep and how to deliver what you do when it counts
  • This is an important skill that needs to be practiced as much as any other of your tools.
  • You never know when you may need to play one even if you don't want to play in an orchestra or military band full time.

Why I want to teach this course 
To help you. I enjoy presenting masterclasses at music schools and conferences that address many of these topics. It has been a goal of mine to do more with it over time. With multiple orchestra jobs and the subbing I do around the country, I haven't had much time to focus on making this course until now. One plus to the Quarantine Times. Just out of school, I struggled to figure out what I wanted out of life . It took a while for me to land on my feet. This course is a mixture of my approach to career/lifestyle balance. 
JoAnn's energy as an educator is so positive and encouraging for the students.
She was able to put them at ease and get them thinking in a wonderful way.
Her techniques were fun and thought provoking, and the students came a
long way in a short time during her teaching session. We want to have her 
back again! As a performer, she sings through the horn and demonstrates
clarity of technique and strong supportive breathing we are after as brass players.

JoAnn's career is what the modern day trumpet player should aspire to- diverse,
flexible and constantly evolving. In addition to JoAnn's tenure at the HSO, she 
has a successful freelance career across the country and is a highly respected
educator and audition trainer. She is methodical and will certainly challenge
you both on the instrument and the business side of being a musician. It was a 
pleasure working with her for many years, and I am excited for anyone who has 
the chance to take her course.
