Submit Question

Q: What does commercial denote in your degree "Jazz Commercial Trumpet"?

A: Commercial refers to the type of work one trains for. My education at Manhattan focused on skills necessary to perform Jingles, Broadway shows, Jazz gigs etc. I went to Peabody Conservatory for classical training and Towson State College for education. And besides, that's what the good people at MSM printed on my diploma.
