CJ Seipp Music

TrumpetsCJ Seipp Music Publications was created in 1994 by Chuck and his wife Julie making available Chuck’s arrangements for brass and trumpet and organ. Here you can find a catalog of his well-known brass quintet works and popular Wedding Book.

Chuck Seipp is a professional trumpet player, music educator, arranger and publisher in the Washington, DC area. Chuck started arranging for his brass quintet, The Commonwealth Brass, and with the encouragement of friends decided to make these arrangements available.

Performing weddings for many years, Chuck realized the need for a collection that incorporated selections perfect for any ceremony and felt “The Wedding Book” would be a great resource for organists and trumpet players.

Since retirement from The United States Army Band, Chuck has been enjoying his love of teaching as well as performing. This site includes recordings, upcoming performances, teaching references, press kit info and performance options that encompass a variety of musical scenarios as soloist, clinician, the Commonwealth Brass Quintet, and has enjoyed touring the country with his Trumpet & Organ  and Trumpet & Piano Duos.

“Chuck, thank you for being such a savvy inspiration. Wishing you a magical and successful artistic life!”….David Cutler, Author, The Savvy Musician.                                          Quote from David’s book, p. 210….“Trumpeter Chuck Seipp (www.cjseippmusic.com) began creating brass arrangements of classical favorites and wedding music for his own gigs, but the demand for these settings resulted in an unexpected business.”
