My name is Austin (AJ) Mitchell and I am a Private Brass Instructor at Saied Music. I am also the principle cornet player in the Arkansas and Oklahoma Salvation Army Divisional Brass Band. I am a born and raised Tulsan and graduated from Booker T. High School in 2015. I have grown up in church, playing brass instruments, as well as in marching band at school. My primary instrument is trumpet/ cornets. Each summer since I was 10, I attended a music conservatory that was an in-depth study of brass music and choral music with The Salvation Army. I then became an instructor at that same camp teaching private lessons to beginners and to advanced students. Being a musician in The Salvation Army has given me many opportunities and experiences like marching in the Rose Bowl Parade and traveling with the brass bands to other states around the south. I am the principle cornet player in the Arkansas and Oklahoma Salvation Army Divisional Brass Band. I studied at The University of Central Oklahoma where I obtained my bachelor’s in Music Production in 2019.
