Reese is highly regarded as an orchestral musician having performed on multiple occasions with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra and the Boston Symphony.  He has performed at many of the world's great summer festivals including Tanglewood, Ravinia, Blossom, Marlboro and the Pacific Music Festival where he also served as a member of the faculty.  Reese has recorded for Telarc with the Empire Brass, on Sony with the Boston Pops and has been featured on the Naxos label with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project.

Reese is dedicated to the promotion of new music having commissioned many new works for the trumpet in various settings as well as participating in multiple premiere performances. He has created dozens of arrangements for both the trumpet and brass quintet and previously served on the board of the Florida State Music Teachers Association as its Composition Commissioning Chair. Reese is a current board member of the International Trumpet Guild.

Reese focuses a great deal of his time on education serving as Assistant Dean and Brass Department Head for Lynn University's Conservatory of Music. He is in great demand as a master clinician and frequently performs and adjudicates at international brass conferences and competitions. He has contributed articles to multiple brass publications and is the contributing editor of the International Trumpet Guild Journal' Chamber Connection, a recurring column that deals with the many facets of brass chamber music. Reese has also written an iBook that utilizes Clarke's Technical Studies to improve double tonguing entitled Repurposing Clarke.

Teaching philosophy

My objective as a teacher is to train confident, flexible trumpeters that are ready to pursue a life in music. I educate students to think conceptually, encouraging a consistent approach to air, sound, efficiency and music making that they can apply to all music they encounter.
