Richard Waddell: Ceremonial Trumpeter & Wedding Music Expert
you for stopping by my web site. My name is Richard Waddell and I am a
professional musician, music instructor, and ceremonial trumpet
I perform for wedding
ceremonies, wedding receptions (typically over 100 each year),
memorial services, special events, or just about any occasion.
How can I help you?
I perform the classical
wedding music you are probably considering for your wedding ceremony
and I've played for hundreds of brides and grooms throughout the Boston area
and across New England.
You probably have an idea of what you're
looking for already. Some of my favorite selections include:
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desire -- J. S. Bach
Sleepers, Wake! -- J. S. Bach
Ave Maria -- Franz Schubert
Prince of Denmark's March -- Jermiah Clarke (also known
as the Trumpet Voluntary of Henry Purcell)
Make no mistake, the music you select for your wedding
day sets the stage for your entire celebration. From the prelude to
the processional, through to the recessional and postludes, the music
you choose is the glue that holds it all together.
As a lifelong
professional musician and trumpet soloist, I love what I do. Adding that special touch
which is remembered for a lifetime means as much to me as it does to
the newly married couples I perform for.
Here are just a few of
the comments I've recently received from brides and grooms:
"You blew me away..."
"You did an unbelievable job..."
"Everyone at my wedding was
"It was worth every single cent..."
"You truly are an amazing talent,
thanks for being a special part of our wedding..."
I travel all throughout
New England and am central to the Greater Boston area.

a music teacher, I teach private lessons on trumpet.
My students typically come from Boston, Brookline, West Roxbury, Belmont, Milton, Abington and throughout the greater Boston
I teach young beginners, intermediate and advanced players, as
well as adult beginners and "come back" players (adults who
played in their youth or have not played in several years).
As a result
of my years of performing with Boston Brass, I am able to offer
insightful guidance to ensembles in need of coaching. More
information about trumpet lessons is available here.
