Jeffrey Venho

Jazz

Jeffrey Venho grew up in Northern New Jersey where his mother taught piano lessons, and his father commuted to NYC each day to work at the NBC studios in Rockefeller Center. In eighth grade, he was thrilled to play his trumpet for the Tonight Show music director and trumpet legend, Doc Severinsen, who gifted one of his trumpets to him. After high school, he attended the Juilliard School on a scholarship and began teaching at Rudolf Steiner School shortly after graduating with a M.M. degree in Trumpet Performance. Jeffrey has performed with many ensembles such as the American Symphony, the New York City Opera and numerous Broadway shows. Rudolf Steiner School has had a big influence on the lives of his family.
