Joe Burstaller

Called “quite simply, a superstar of the trumpet” by conductor JoAnn Falletta, multi-genre international soloist JOE BURGSTALLER connects with audiences throughout the world with his captivating sound, dazzling virtuosity and engaging personality. Known as a story-teller with his instrument, Burgstaller is “brass-famous” for his nearly eight years as trumpeter and arranger for the famed Canadian Brass.
Joe tours worldwide as a soloist (recently including Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, Taipei, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Winnipeg, Hamburg, Bologna, US Virgin Islands, etc.), as a chamber musician, as a crossover artist, as a guest orchestral musician and as a Master (more than 120 universities and conservatories so far) with his groundbreaking masterclasses for all instruments called "Change Your Mind, Change Your Playing®”.
As Associate Professor of Trumpet at Arizona State University, he leads a dynamic trumpet studio that comprehensively prepares students for the demands of today's music world, focusing on artistic development, versatility, entrepreneurship and career growth. Described as a “Talent Whisperer”, his teaching combines traditional and fundamental techniques with an innovative mental training approach rooted in the field's breakthrough discoveries of the last two decades.
Joe’s discography includes hit solo CDs (License to Thrill and The Virtuoso Trumpet), three Top-10 Billboard hits with Canadian Brass, and his recent crossover CDs (Bach’s Secret Files and Mozart’s Blue Dreams) were Top-50 on the JazzRadio charts and the Roots Radio Report (under Paul Simon but right above the Beastie Boys).
