Trumpet

About Me

At an early age, I was exposed to a variety of music including Motown, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll, Hip-Hop, Latin, and the Blues. The early influences of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Howlin’ Wolf, kept me singing. I held my first concert at age 4, singing songs of the Tempations.

I began playing the trumpet when I was seven years old. So I've been playing for 17 years now. I've been classically trained from the beginning. While in junior high school, I began venturing into the world of jazz, sharpening my lead trumpet and improvisation skills with focused attention and everlasting curiosity.

I attended Homewood-Flossmoor High School and toured Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic as section leader in my school's Symphonic Band and lead trumpet and soloist of our award-winning jazz band.

I then attended the University of Pittsburgh, where Nathan Davis (formerly of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers) is the head of the Jazz Department. This was a priceless environment for me, as it allowed me to form my own musical identity through rigorous scholastic study as well as my own personal study. I had the pleasure of playing with Jazz legends and giants such as Roger Humphries and Sean Jones, and learning from Leon Lee Dorsey (formerly of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers).

Since graduating with a Music, Jazz Concentration Degree, I have been performing as a bandleader and sidesman throughout the Chicagoland area. My trio enjoys regular gigs at Flavor Restaurant, putting on invigorating shows in an intimate setting. I have played with my quartet at Andy’s Jazz Club, as well as with Jim Holman’s group. I've also performed at several Friday night jazz sets in “Trio’s Restaurant and Jazz Club” in South Bend, Indiana, amongst many other venues.

My album, "The New Standard Vol. 1" is also doing well, gaining exposure and popularity.

Along with my performance experience, I have a passion for sharing knowledge and bouncing ideas. Since I have learned from the masters of music, I am well-prepared to guide students toward their own musical identities and goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal, as I said earlier is to guide students toward their own musical identities. This is so important because when a musician is playing or writing the music that they love, the music that naturally comes out of them, they enjoy a deep connection with that music and their audience can feel the music coming straight from their soul. No jivin'... they believe it.

Lessons Include:
Trumpet Conservatory Method
Articulation
Phrasing
Improvisation
Proper Posture and Breathing
Composition
Lyricism

Jazz, Classical, Blues, Funk, Rock, R&B

I studied from Clarke and Arban's books a lot.

I also studied a lot of Clifford Brown.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Composition, Dance, Drum, Ear Training, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Singing, Songwriting, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, Upright Bass

About Me

Daniel, a former faculty member of Columbia College in Chicago, is a studio and live performance singer and musician based in Chicago. His teaching and performing experience spans three decades, and includes expertise in the studies of voice, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and trumpet, along with music theory, arranging, and composing. He is a Lincoln Academy Student Laureate who holds a BA in Music Composition, and has attended graduate courses in education at Roosevelt University and DePaul University in Chicago. He has taught students of all ages at private studios, public school, and college.

Daniel is described by his students as a natural teacher. He prefers to be regarded as an advancing student, and takes the journey along with his students to guide them towards their goals with a friendly, positive, efficient and productive approach. He feels that music is within all of us, and a desire to learn is a sign of talent, so anyone can develop their musical abilities with methodical practice.

The musical journey for Daniel began at an early age with trumpet and piano studies which became a passion for him by the age of 14. He was the drum major of the high school marching band, and successfully completed a paid contract to arrange music for the high school jazz band which performed in a state beauty pageant. He began teaching privately after high school, and continued playing in bands, and composing original music. He formed a professional jazz ensemble under the name of the Chicago Jazz Players by the age of 22, and developed his arranging techniques while having it performed by an eighteen piece orchestra consisting of many great local artists. It was in this environment that he gained experience with brass, woodwinds, and rhythm instruments. He was granted a position at Columbia College as an instructor at age 29 where he taught theory, sight singing, musicianship, ear training, harmony, orchestration, and composition. He scored the music for several plays, and conducted his own pieces with Chicago Symphony and Lyric Opera Players. During those years he found himself playing the guitar and singing more than anything else. It was in 1995 that he focused on singing and playing the guitar with his rock band. He has produced several CD recordings of his original music in his own studio, and has helped produce local bands and artists. He performs regularly in the Chicago area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Daniel exhibits patience and care with each student, and develops an individualized approach based on clear goals with practical procedures. Most beginners can expect to have a working knowledge of music notation and how it applies to their instrument within three months, and should be developing fluency in performing music that they enjoy within six months. Advancing students will enjoy the rewards that will follow by studying with an experienced teaching musician that will recognize strengths and weaknesses, and recommend proven techniques for personal musical development. Studying music should be fun, fulfilling, and in harmony with the needs and desires of the student, and this is key to the philosophy held by Daniel.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Eight track recording gear; grand piano; guitars/bass (acoustic & electric); cables/amps, drum kit and percussion.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide lesson materials, and always have a metronome with me. I expect the student to have an instrument. I prefer that a student has a music stand.

Dafydd B. Wheeling, IL

Subjects Taught

French Horn, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

I am an active freelance hornist in the Chicagoland area. Beginning my studies at the age of nine, I have been playing the horn for 15 years. After finishing high school in Houston, Texas, I relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I began my undergraduate work at Louisiana State University under the instruction of Seth Orgel of the Atlantic Brass Quintet.

Upon completion of my Bachelor of Music degree in 2011, l moved to Chicago, IL where I spent the next two years earning a master's degree in music performance. During this time I studied with Dale Clevenger, long time Principal Horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

During my career, I have performed in a wide variety of settings including orchestral performances, musicals, operas, chamber music, and solo performances.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am highly enthusiastic about teaching the art of music and brass playing to all who wish to learn. I developed my teaching philosophy by combining the teaching styles of my own personal teachers. I start by focusing on the fundamentals of brass playing. These include skills such as breathing, tone production, scales, and arpeggios. I believe that once learned, these skills can be used as tools in order to make beautiful music. The next phase of teaching focuses more on the music its self. Things such as phrasing, dynamics, tone color, and style are what separate the good performers from the great ones. I use a proven combination of method books, etude books, and my own personal exercises and pieces that I have created to both fix certain problems, as well as perfect the art of music making.

While this may sound intimidating to a new student or their parents, DO NOT BE AFRAID! I am very good at what I do, and I promise that I can teach you all of these skills and more. In the end, it all comes down to the joy that can come from making music, and my teaching method can get you to the point where you can have more fun than you ever imagined performing music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Chairs
Music Stands
Sheet music and exercises

*** Travel Equipment ***
I could provide sheet music and exercises.
I expect my students to have a instrument that is in working condition.

*** Specialties ***
I focus on using a variety of method books and etude books, combined with the standard orchestral, band, and solo repertoire in order to teach the art of music making, as well as the skills necessary to play the instrument proficiently.

About Me

Hi, my name is Voytek and I love music! I currently do over 200 shows a year and in addition to performing as a soloist, I play in 2 gigging ensembles. Thanks to music, I've been able to meet many incredible people and travel all over the world to Germany, New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and the Dominican Republic. My goal is to inspire my students and share with them my passion for music so they can also experience how wonderful and rewarding it really is. Let's rock some jams!

*** Lesson Details ***
While teaching lessons, I like to keep the atmosphere relaxed but productive. I utilize many proven traditional teaching techniques (for example: scales, theory, exercises, drills and prepared pieces) however, I also try to keep things fresh with fun backing tracks and music theory games to keep students engaged. I am also very flexible and open to suggestions, so I encourage students to ask questions and let me know if they want to learn a specific song or musical concept.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio is equipped with a 76-key keyboard, drum set, music stands, recording equipment and a PA system. Plenty of parking available, either in the driveway or on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
In order to teach at a student's home I will need a quiet room/area where we can concentrate on our studies. If the student is taking drum or piano lessons, they will need a drum kit or piano/keyboard. Also, a boombox/CD player may be necessary if we need to play with some backing tracks.
