Welcome to, a website dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in trumpet playing while paying tribute to more than 60 years of great trumpet playing and teaching at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

We’re excited to be back online following a number of attacks by hackers which finally overwhelmed our limited resources.  After a massive reorganization of the site, we’re back!  And better than ever — the online searchable recital database is working after being unavailable for many years.  Over the next few months, we hope to add web pages for all of the 270+ Henderson trumpet studio alumni.

Feel free to explore the links on the left to learn about the trumpet at Henderson and some of the many, many trumpet resources available on the web!

We’re always looking for information on our alums and more than happy to correct mistakes.
