Born in Salem Oregon, trumpet player Bryce Schmidt was a distinct musical talent from a young age. As a teen, Schmidt received early recognition from the music community winning the National Trumpet Competition's High School Soloist division in 2006. Bryce continued his musical studies earning a Bachelor's and two Master's degrees under the tutelage of Bill Campbell at the University of Michigan. Bryce's artistry then earned him the James Stamp Trumpet Scholarship while working on a Graduate Certificate at the University of Southern California under the guidance of Los Angeles Philharmonic trumpeters Boyde Hood and Thomas Hooten.

Finishing his formal studies in 2017, Bryce quickly began making a name for himself in the freelance community. Having already played as a guest performer with the Detroit Symphony and Ann Arbor Symphony, Bryce has played in Los Angeles with the Downey Symphony, guest principal with the American Youth Symphony, Hans Zimmer Live, and has served as a sub musician with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Mr. Schmidt is also an active recording artist, performing on music for film and television. He can be heard on Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, A Wrinkle in Time, as well as the critically acclaimed Paramount film A Quiet Place. Bryce's television credits include Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Empire, Dynasty and Cobra Kai.

In addition to his busy performing schedule, Mr. Schmidt also maintains a studio of private students. As a clinician, Bryce has worked with students at every level, including but not limited to middle school, high school, and university aged musicians. As a performer in so many facets, Schmidt unique perspective allows him to be a versatile and agile educator.

In his spare time, Bryce enjoys working out, reading, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing with his girlfriend and their dog, Stella.

    Bryce is an excellent teacher. I returned to the trumpet after many decades off (I played in middle school). His approach to teaching for me is great. All his experience lets him zero in on things I need to improve, and how to improve it. He leads by really good example, obviously, given how much commercial work he does. He has a great personality, so lesson is always fun, and productive. All his experience gives him great musical insight to many genres. I’ve made great progress, to the point of credibly playing in “Taps Across America” on Memorial Day. I wasn’t in front of an organized crowd, but I was playing in public. I highly recommend Bryce, and look forward to getting off Zoom and in person.

    I began teaching privately as a high school student and I have been teaching both private students and large classes ever since. 

    I have worked with all age ranges and ability levels. From beginners who have never touched a musical instrument to music majors at the university level. 

    Look for a teacher who is clear in what they are asking from you. Who you enjoy to hear play for you when they are teaching. Most importantly find a teacher who helps you improve while keeping music what it is suppose to be... FUN!
