Jamie Lundi is a Euphonist, Trombonist, and Tubist from Orlando, FL. In Orlando, he gained his musical experience playing in bands at Meadowbrook Middle and Evans High School. In high school he participated in events around the city including various concerts, battle of the bands, and parades, such as the M.L.K. downtown parade and the Universal Studios Holiday Macy's Parade. He sat in the All-County band on euphonium for 3 years in a row from 2005-2008. During that time in High School he learned to play euphonium, trombone, and percussion. He participated and performed in many competitions and shows with the PATMOS Drumline. Upon graduating high school, he received a full scholarship to attend college for music.
That scholarship came from the great Bethune-Cookman University. While enrolled, he participated in the Marching Wildcat band on sousaphone, played in the symphonic band and tuba-euphonium brass band on euphonium. He performed with the marching band at various NFL halftimes, opened for the Super Bowl XLIII(43), played halftime at the Pro Bowl 2010, and participated in 4 Florida Classic Performances. He sat first chair in the BCU symphonic band on euphonium for 2 years. He was also the tuba section leader in the marching band from 2011-2013. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. Before becoming a private teacher, he was a brass instructor for different high schools in Orlando, FL.
Jamie has been able to teach a variety of instruments on all levels throughout his teaching career. He has taught beginning band, intermediate band, symphonic band, jazz band, marching band, guitar, piano, and music theory in high schools throughout Orlando, Daytona, and Miami. As a high school band director, he's taught bands and classes ranging from 30 to 150 students. Mr. Lundi has taught private lessons for over 6 years. He loves teaching students and takes pride in their progression as great musicians. He believes every student has a chance at making music. "Someone's first instrument may not be their last." "Music is an universal language that is transferrable to different people and to different instruments."
One of the most important teaching philosophies to him is ensuring his students have a firm understanding of how to properly practice by themselves and to feel confident in knowing how to approach problems and improve on their own during the days they do not see their teacher. He makes sure his students “work smarter, not harder.” Having good physical technique is also one of his major focuses with his students, as this sets the stage for highly expressive playing. Above all, though, he makes sure his students will have fun during their lessons and encourages a great love for playing music.
