Jazz Master Class is given by Wayne Bergeron. In addition to being one of today’s greatest performing trumpet stars, Wayne Bergeron delivers exciting master classes to audiences worldwide. As part of the class, he’ll cover how he came to play trumpet and excel in the rarified air above the staff, but also what it takes to become a great all-around trumpet player. He also speaks about what’s required to succeed in a big band – particularly at the lead trumpet position. During the session Wayne will complement a wealth of technical trumpet tips with anecdotes from his long career that are insightful, funny, and inspiring for jazz musicians young and old. Although the master class is targeted at big band trumpet players, all jazz and big band musicians – as well as passionate fans of the genre – are encouraged to attend. The interactive, informal lecture portion of the master class will run about an hour, with time afterward for questions as schedules permit.
