Event Information

Since the age of 10, Giveton taught himself how to play the trumpet simply by emulating what he heard on his favorite records. Giveton graduated high school in the Bahamas and then moved to Ohio to study with Dr. Eddie Henderson at the Oberlin Conservatory. After one year at Oberlin, he moved to New York to attend the Juilliard School. Giveton is mentored by some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians, including Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Eddie Henderson, Barry Harris, Jason Moran, Ralph Peterson, Ambrose Akinmusire and Roy Hargrove. At nineteen, Giveton now leads his own Quintet and plays around town on the New York scene.
