Abstract

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.
