Rick Rein

I teach trumpet, guitar, bass, drums, and piano. I came to Philadelphia to attend the University of the Arts, where I studied with Bill Pusey, George Rabbai, Matt Cappy, and Matt Gallagher; Their credits include work with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, Jay-Z, and NFL Films. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in trumpet performance, then dove headfirst into the Philadelphia music scene. As a teacher, my goal is to help students develop their musical ears, along with proper technique and theoretical understanding, so they can find their own personal sound. - Read More About Rick

John Dimase

I teach Trumpet, Piano, Voice. Born and raised in Albany, New York, I started playing piano lessons at the age of seven and picked up the trumpet just a few years later. Growing up in a family that loved to listen to jazz, I decided to follow my other brother's footsteps and join my high school jazz band. Quickly learning the ways of the music, I started to make a name for myself joining groups such as the Empire State Youth Jazz Orchestra, New York's All-State Jazz Ensemble, the NAfME All-Eastern Jazz Ensemble, the Skidmore Jazz Institute and Jazz at Lincoln Center's Summer Jazz Academy under the direction of Wynton Marsalis. I'm a graduate of Temple University's Jazz Studies program with a concentration in Trumpet, under the direction of Terell Stafford. I currently reside in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where I play trumpet and sing in performances as well as give private trumpet, piano and voice lessons. - Read More About John
