About Me

Hello! My name is Jordan Webb and I am a trumpet player and teacher bouncing back and forth between Austin, Texas and Tokyo, Japan. 

 

Interested in taking trumpet lessons with me? If you’re located in Austin or Leander ISD, please check out my Trumpet Studio page to learn more about my private lesson studio. If you’re located anywhere else and want to take lessons, you can! I maintain an online studio with several students in my home state of North Carolina, and I’m currently accepting students. Check out my Online Video Lessons page for more information on how to get connected with me through Skype or FaceTime!

 

When I’m not in the US teaching trumpet lessons, you can find me eating ramen somewhere in Japan. For the past three years I have spent extended periods of time there performing with two different shows produced by Kyodo Tokyo: MEG’s ‘Blast! The Music of Disney’ and ‘One Piece – Oto Utage.’ For more information on those shows, feel free to check out The Blog portion of my page.

 

Prior to my current life of teaching trumpet and traveling in Japan, I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I received my BA in Trumpet Performance and my Master of Arts in Teaching. Although I spend most of my time teaching trumpet lessons, one of my greatest passions involves the marching arts. After participating in high school and college marching band, I went on to join Carolina Crown as a trumpet player and conductor from 2008-2010. I was able to continue performing after my ‘age-out’ as an original cast member in the Blast-style show ‘Mix It Up’ located at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. In between my time performing with Mix it Up’ and ‘Blast! The Music of Disney,’ I spent four years in my hometown of Wilson, North Carolina as the band director at Toisnot Middle School.

 

I’ve also had the pleasure to support the marching arts activity through my involvement with Carolina Gold Performing Arts located in Raleigh, NC. I first got involved at Carolina Gold in 2011 as the Visual Caption Head and then moved into Director role for the Drum Corps. Most recently I was able to serve as the Director and Visual Coordinator for Carolina Gold’s newest ensemble, Midas Winds, a WGI Winds ensemble competing within the AIA and WGI Winds circuits. Midas Winds earned silver medals in Independent Open Class in 2016 and 2017 at WGI Winds World Championships.
