Joshua Reisenfeld was born in Hamilton, Montana and started playing piano when he was five years old. Although he well, when he was 10 years old he started to play the trumpet. At age 11 he decided he had to choose one instrument in order to excel and decided to pursue the trumpet. In 8th grade he had the opportunity to play in an honors band, which focused on and introduced him to jazz music. It was very challenging and enjoyable to play with the group. The band director inspired him to push hard and he really developed the discipline and focus to pursue trumpet. Joshua seeks out challenging opportunities, including Festival, band camps, and Interlochen. He hopes that each one of these opportunities will help him to improve and further develop as an artist.
