Chiang L. Chicago, IL

I basically focus on fundamental skills. Trumpet is a tough instrument to play: it only has three keys but has to play a wide register like other instruments. It is common for students to get bored with playing basic etudes, therefore I would award them by teaching pop songs or whatever pieces they like for meeting the week’s progress. I normally teach classical trumpet, marching trumpet and beginner’s jazz trumpet.

About Chiang

I am a trumpet instructor with global experience and an approach to learning that is encompassing and fun for all ages. I was born in Taiwan and have studied in both Asia and the U.S., where I last earned my Master of Music degree from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. Students have described me as someone who is out going, someone who is laid back and fun and someone who likes to listen and communicate with my students. I have been teaching trumpet and piano since sophomore at college, in private one-on-one lessons or as a trumpet sectional coach at elementary schools or middle schools.

I believe that being an educator is about the communication and the relationship that exists between a teacher and a student. The art of being a good educator exists in the ...

I am taking piano class with Chiang since 3 months ago, starting from scratch. He has been very professional and knowledgeable, and in the meantime, being nice and forgiving (especially when I have no time to practice due to my work).

John is fun (and forgiving)

I haven't touched a piano since middle school, and while I was apprehensive going back to playing the piano, John made it rather fun and interesting. The first impression I had of John was how animated he was, and how much fun he has teaching and how much fun he wants you to have.
Eric M. Villa Park, IL

I love to play the trumpet. I play it in shows almost every day and love the way that Jazz sounds coming through a horn!

About Eric

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

I am originally from Fresno, California, but I currently reside in the Chicago area. I completed my B.A. in Trumpet Performance at California State University, Fresno in 2011. I also just recently completed my M.M. in Jazz Studies at Northwestern University in June of 2013.

Mr C. is a very knowledgeable and talented trumpet player. I have zero experience with the trumpet and music for that matter, but he makes learning easy and enjoyable. He gives good tips and practice methods. Very down to earth and doesn't set strict expectations and takes it day by day. Would recommend to anyone.

Voytek is unbelievably positive and flexible. I've been working with him for about 6 months, and he started me off with a great set of lessons and materials that was right for me. He always focuses on what I do well, so I want keep playing, even when things get hard. When he points out something to work on, he somehow comes across positive - more like a helpful suggestion than a critique. Voytek has been knowledgable and flexible when I want to focus on music theory or just play songs that I like. I continue to work with him and would hire him for other types of lessons.

As an adult novice I was concerned about taking my first lessons without any musical background. However, Voytek has made it very easy and fun. I'm very happy with my choice of instructor and plan to continue for some time.

Voytek is currently giving lessons to my son and daughter. He is fantastic and really relates well to the kids - It is a pleasure having him in our home.
Dan M. Glen Ellyn, IL

Every level welcome. I have found the most success with using "Standards of Excellence" for beginners. As students progress, more materials will be needed. "Arban's: Complete Method for Trumpet" is standard for advancing students in my curriculum.

Dan has taught for about 10 years and speaks with efficient feedback. His experiences playing in ensembles has made him an extremely strong musician. I would recommend him for any advanced brass lesson tutoring. He can relate to people of any age so younger students would benefit from his energetic nature as well.
Suzan V. Evanston, IL

Generally, for all beginning students I start by teaching fundamentals. I use Herbert L. Clarke - Elementary Studies for the trumpet, along with Arban's, warm-up exercises and teaching some simple music theory (like scales).
Arban's I use for all levels, since the book covers all. Clarke has other follow-up books that also cover good material for intermediate to advanced students.I use Charlier - 36 Etudes for the trumpet for students with an advanced level.
I teach improvisation for students who (want to) play jazz, along with covering the stylistics. Patterns for Jazz by Jerry Coker and Jazzconceptions by Jim Snidero, Jamey Aebersold Jazz Play-A-Longs are books that I use besides transcribing solos. I can accompany on piano too.

About Suzan

I am a professional musician with a great passion for teaching and passing on my knowledge. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Jazz performance on trumpet. I also had 6 years of (classical) piano training in my younger years, which is helpful for accompaniment and composing. My studies covered a wide range of subjects, which gave me a thorough knowledge of music arranging, music theory, jazz harmony and composition. My teaching experience dates back to 2009. Ever since I have been teaching privately, doing brass masterclasses and teaching individuals and groups at music schools.
