The late Russian trumpet virtuoso, Timofei Dokshizer (1921-2005) had a tremendous impact on the trumpet world. This lecture presents a look into the life and times of Mr. Dokshizer and his influence on performance and pedagogy. I have gained unique insights from some who knew him well including Anna Dokshizer, Ron Modell, and Emil Davidson (son of Louis Davidson). I have given this presentation at The Juilliard School, The Cleveland Institute of Music, The Eastman School of Music, Baylor University and the North Carolina School of Music. Please contact me for availability to present this lecture on Timofei Dokshizer.
