[What’s this?]


Setup/Gear/Manufacturer of Instruments:

I play on a 1953 medium bore Martin Committee and a drilled out Bach 5MV. For my flugelhorn I use a Conn Vintage One with a drilled Laskey 60F mouthpiece. Finally when I use a cornet I pay on my 80’s Getzen Deluxe with a Yamaha 13e4 mouthpiece.

Why did you begin studying music?

I started doing music at a very young age mostly because both of my parents are musicians. I started with violin and later switched to french horn. After a while I got bored with the classical frame so I switched to trumpet and a year later I dived in the wonderful world of Jazz!

What are you doing with music right now?

I am pushing myself the most I can, learning the fastest possible, gigging as much as I can and practicing the most I can to be always at the best of my capacities. I am presently studying at Vanier College in Montreal in Jazz interpretation.

Who are some of your influences?

My biggest influence will always be Chet Baker. Also there is Clifford Brown and Miles Davis.

Who do you/have you studied with?

I am presently studying with Jocelyn Couture at Vanier College and with Jan Jarczyk.

What do you plan on doing with music in the future?

I plan on continuig music and pushing my art to the highest level possible. Ideally I would like to have a career as a jazz soloist. Also, I would love to travel and have some kind of international career. I always aim to be at the top and maybe someday my dreams will come true!
