Hi, I'm Raji Fitzpatrick, a junior at Green Level High School! I am offering weekly lessons for beginning and intermediate trumpet students.

As a young musician, I have worked toward accumulating significant solo and ensemble experience, through participating in Honors Ensembles, including All State Band, the Apex Trumpet Symposium, Triangle Youth Philharmonic, Triangle Youth J. Perry Watson Brass Band, Cannon Music Camp, and the National Trumpet Competition.

Those interested in lessons may register to participate in the form below. You only need to register once. Lessons will be thirty minutes in length and will cover both technique and musicianship. It would be helpful for students to regularly attend, but the possibility of absences shouldn't deter you from registering.

Private or small group instruction is critical to growing as a musician and it was only after I got better at trumpet that I really began to enjoy it. In this post-pandemic age, music lessons and achieving the thrill of playing together can be more challenging than normal. I would like to do my part to help keep the music going!

Lessons will be free. However I accept donations, all of which will be donated to the Green Level's band program. The program uses donations to assist with a variety of needs, including student financial needs related to music program participation. In the 20/21 school year, I raised over $500.

Interested? Please complete the Google Form on the "Lesson Interest Form" tab and I will provide further information to proceed.
