Rich Willey, a devoted student of the late, legendary brass pedagogue Dr. Donald S. “Doc” Reinhardt, teaches trumpet and trombone students according to his eight years of private study with “Doc” (including attendance at two of Reinhardt’s three-day teacher’s clinics) from 1978 through 1986.
2. Skype Lessons: Subsequent Lessons (chops—brass instruments)
As taught by Dr. Donald S. “Doc” Reinhardt, Rich allows students a 60–90 day “incubation period” and then meets with them again to see what indicators may have been unearthed by the grueling regimen they are given at their Orientation and Analysis Period lesson. Now is when the rubber really meets the road!

4. Skype Lessons: Jazz Improv (subsequent lessons)
For those who have taken a first Skype Jazz Improv lesson with Rich and feel that they could benefit from some further explanation, demonstration, motivation or inspiration.
