Jeff Purtle has raised consciousness about the trumpet and its pedagogy throught the upstate. He is a fine player and an excellent communicator. He offered a masterclass at Furman University on the playing principals of Claude Gordon--it was well-received and all the students were impressed with Jeff as a player and teacher. Jeff has made a significant contributon to trumpet playing and teaching in this state. Personable and engaging, Jeff has really envigorated the musical scene in Greenville--there are few brass players in the state who aren't aware of his influence on the craft.
