Jon Crowley

Jon Crowley began playing trumpet when he was 6 years old, first studying with Elin Frasier, a student of Carmine Caruso.  He performed in classical and Jazz bands throughout middle school and high school including completing in some regional competitions and went on to major in Music from Muhlenberg College.  Throughout that time and beyond, Jon worked with children ages 6-14 at Benchmark Summer camp(a recreational outdoors camp) for 15 years.

After graduating from Muhlenberg College, Jon moved to New York City where he attended NYU, receiving a MA in Jazz Performance and Composition in ’07.  He studied with the late great Laurie Frink, widely considered one of the best trumpet teachers in the world and uses the method she developed as an extension of Carmine Caruso’s school of trumpet playing.

Jon has performed all around NYC at venues such as The Blue Note, Lincoln Center, 55 Bar, and Rockwood, and has taught privately since moving to NYC, including time as an adjunct faculty member at NYU, as well as working at Lincoln Center as part of their WeBop Jazz program for kids. Jon has been playing trumpet for 27 years and enjoys sharing his love of trumpet through teaching.”
