Trumpet Dynamics

James Newcomb is a trumpeter and specialist in the art of broadcast media and entrepreneurship for musicians. He founded Trumpet Dynamics in January, 2016 as a podcast that interviewed trumpeters of all ability levels and experiences and from all over the world. It has since evolved into a resource for trumpeters to learn and master the tools, techniques and most important, the mindset required for musicians to prosper in the modern world.

James is a 12 year veteran of the U.S. Army bands. Since leaving the military in late 2015, he has established a private trumpet studio and performs as a freelance musician in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area.

In addition to his commitments to the Trumpet Dynamics brand, James also operates a podcast and blog titled, MusicPreneur: Making Money Making Music. Publishing a new episode every day, Monday thru Friday, it has become a respected resource for musicians of all genres to assist in their efforts of monetizing their musical skills.
