Over Denis A.
My name is Denis and I am a performing trumpet player and teacher. I graduated from Jazz Trumpet at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in spring 2015.
In our first lesson, we will first check your level and make a plan according to your wishes and music preferences. Everybody in my lesson gets an individual approach.
If you are a total beginner, we will first practice and improve your technique through simple songs. I also like playing duets with my students because it’s always a lot of fun. Alternatively I have some play alongs for you to practice at home. If you are more experienced, we can isolate certain elements of playing, like style or improvisation, and work solely on that. I can even help you get familiar with various effects like delay, looper, harmonizer etc.
Because of my experience as an active performer in different bands and projects throughout my life, I am familiar with playing different music styles: from jazz, funk, latin, RnB, pop, electronics to playing with effects. At the moment, I am actively performing with a jazz trio, a New Orleans brass band, a reggae pop band and a more experimental electronics project.
I’m also teaching a trumpet group on one of the middle schools in Amsterdam. That job thought me a lot of patience and I'm calm by nature so you can expect that in the lessons too.
Lessons can take place either in my studio at NDSM or at your home.
Don’t hesitate and contact me for a free tryout lesson! If you don’t have your own trumpet yet, I’ll let you try on mine and/or help you choose one.
