For immediate release
... John Dover, trumpet Soloist, Clinician, and Educator signs on as a Bach Artist for Conn-Selmer Corporation.
Portland, OR. – April /John D Music// Portland-based trumpet player John Dover has partnered with Conn-Selmer Corp. to represent their Bach line of trumpets as a Bach Artist and Clinician. As a Bach Artists John joins the select ranks that include the principal trumpet for the New York Philharmonic, as well as top tier studio musicians from LA. In his new role John will work with schools and other venues to schedule workshops and guest artist appearances to educate and entertain across the country.
A trumpet performer for over 26 years, John Dover is also a composer, educator, and clinician, as well as a trained vocalist. He has performed everything from Bach to Basie, Elvis to Haydn, and his compositions have been interpreted by groups such as TNSF and the Steve Hall Quintet. John has created and performed on promotional videos for Harrelson Trumpets, and he has produced and starred in his own web series, "Road to the Studio."
John's educational background in Jazz Studies and Trumpet Performance at the University of North Texas and the University of Colorado at Boulder curated an appreciation for multiple genres, making him as much at home in chamber orchestras and quintets as in rock bands and slow jams. His group and solo performances have been in high demand not only in his current home of the Pacific Northwest, but also throughout the US, Mexico, and as far south as Sao Palo, Brazil.
John also seeks to influence tomorrow’s generation by reaching out to the communities where he performs. Through private teaching and workshops, John encourages students to develop their personal practice "workouts," and to adopt his philosophy that only through disciplined, daily practice, study, application, and a constant strive for excellence can one truly realize their best possible sound and technique.
While John continues to expand his career as a soloist and guest artist, this new partnership will open up many new opportunities in school music programs across the United States and elsewhere. With an upcoming trip to Sao Palo, Brazil and solo performance dates in the works for other parts of South America, John is excited to bring his sound to the world. This new partnership will allow John to not only leverage his own talents to reach new audiences, but also to increase public awareness for the superior quality of Bach instruments.
