Mary Pappert School of Music
Jazz, Performance, Frank Zappa
This recital encompasses the the full extent my graduate studies in Jazz Trumpet at Duquesne. Under the guidance of my teacher, Sean Jones, I developed improvisational skills in Jazz idioms such as swing, bebop, waltz and ballad playing. My program aims to showcase these skills. Additionally, I am including studies from my Performance Paper (Elements of Musical Vision: The Music of Frank Zappa) by performing an original composition that aims to take influence from the works of Frank Zappa.
