As a "come back" trumpet player who enjoys playing in the Lander University Wind Ensemble for the past six years and in local dance bands, I have found Jeff Purtle and Purtle.com to be a priceless resource in developing my playing skills. A student "disciple" of the legendary Claude Gordon, Jeff Purtle has continued the legacy of Gordon through his exemplary teaching methods. Always challenging me with increasingly complex exercises, my skills (tone, range, & dexterity) have greatly increased in the last two and a half years from his teachings. His online accessibility is prompt and convenient. If you are serious about being the best you can be I highly recommend Jeff Purtle for your trumpet teacher. Play On!
