Visual Instruction, Trumpet specialist, Jazz Combo Coach
To say that Jeremy Shrader loves good music would be an extreme understatement. The love comes through in the notes he plays on trumpet, his singing of classic songs, and in the many bands that he leads which include the New Memphis Hepcats, the Hot Memphis Five, and Jeremy Shrader's Octocats. Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, Jeremy attended the University Of Memphis, earning a degree in Jazz Composition and playing in the school concert band, marching band and jazz big band. His compositions cover and blend many styles, from jazz to rock to hip-hop, and everything in between. In every setting in which he appears, his spirited performances are well worth hearing.
Jeremy is a private music teacher in the Memphis area, teaching trumpet, guitar, and piano. His experience in marching ensembles includes 2 seasons performing with the Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps (1996-97), 3 years with the Mighty Sound of the South Marching Band, and 4 years of high school marching band.
