Born into a family of music lovers, it is no surprise that music ended up being his career choice. First picking up the trumpet at age 11, Jeremy took to the horn. Upon entering the Springfield High School of Science and Technology - Jeremy was immediately placed into the concert ensembles. Under the direction of Music Educator Grammy Nominee, Gary Bernice, he would become the programs first Drum Major as a Sophomore and the Band's President as a Senior. During his junior and senior years, Jeremy successfully auditioned for the MMEA Western District Orchestra and sat Principle and Second chair. He would also go on to sit in with the United States Navy Band as well as first chair in the MA Lions All State Concert and Jazz Bands, UMASS Honor Band and CMG Jazz Ensembles. Jeremy graduated from high school with the highest musical honors given to date. In January of 2013, Jeremy was accepted into the prestigious Berklee College of Music. It was there that he would receive his first set of consistent private lessons with professors - Scott DeOgburn, Charlie Lewis, and Christine Fawson. He left Berklee after the summer of 2014, but he keeps his connections with the school strong and performs there at least once a year.
