Trumpeter Brandon Choi comes from the Los Angeles area of Southern California, where his musical growth first began under the guidance of both classical and improvising trumpet teachers.
While in LA, Brandon performed with Gordon Goodwin, Tom Kubis, and funk band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
He currently resides in Perrysburg, New York near Buffalo after having finished his degree at the Eastman School of Music, where he studied with professors Clay Jenkins, Bill Dobbins, and Harold Danko; and has played with such luminary musicians as Joe Martin, Jim McNeely, and Bill Holman.
Brandon is very grateful and excited for the opportunity to have music in his life.
Curious about this song? This song is called "Motivational Speeches," and I wrote it in college. Its title has undergone changes through the years (I used to call it "Fractal Eyes"), but I settled on this title. The ensemble performing it is none other than the Clay Jenkins 3:30JPW of 2016.
