Tony Smith, retired Assistant Principal of Brandywine High School in Wilmington, plays it all - jazz, classical, and R&B, but jazz is his favorite. "Jazz allows me to express myself, and it’s more challenging because you never play a tune the same way twice."

Tony started playing trumpet in the 7th grade, and his musical talents later secured him a full scholarship to then-Delaware State College. After graduating, Tony studied with the jazz master Robert ‘Boysie’ Lowrey. In addition to giving private trumpet lessons, Tony founded the first students’ band at Christina Cultural Arts Center in Delaware. You can find this trumpeter performing regularly throughout the Tri-State area.
