Dr. Joel Flunker

With over 20 years of national and international performance and teaching experience, this doctor can cure the trumpet blues!
Teaching Philosophy

I believe that most trumpet players develop bad habits that make them work against themselves. The considerable effort we put into mastering the instrument needs to be directed efficiently toward the goal of playing with greater ease and comfort, which results in a higher level of consistency, and above all, the freedom to make MUSIC!

Experience

Over 20 years professional performing experience. Performances in 49 of the 50 states (sorry, Idaho!), Japan and Taiwan. Currently a full-time university instructor. Multiple performances with Hartford Symphony Orchestra, including many as principal, for both Pops and Masterworks concerts. D.M.A., University of Connecticut (Applied Trumpet; Theory Emphasis)

Credentials
