Bill Owens, Trumpet

Bill Owens is currently the associate principal trumpet player with the West Point Band. A graduate of The Juilliard School, Bill moved to Los Angeles in 2005 to pursue a career as a free-lance chamber and orchestral musician. He quickly established himself by performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the San Diego Symphony, the Santa Barbara Symphony as well as numerous other orchestras in Southern California. For six years, Bill was a member of the national touring ensemble, Presidio Brass. While maintaining a busy performing schedule with Presidio, Bill and organist Alison Leudecke performed recitals in venues throughout SoCal. In addition to performing, Bill edits, arranges and writes music for his instrument within varying contexts. He has recently published a book of trumpet exercises, Basic Training for Trumpet, available through Charles Colin Music Publications.
