I teach all levels of trumpet with a completely custom lesson plan designed for each student. Trumpet playing should be fun and as effortless as possible!

We will cover:
How to play trumpet (tone, range, articulation)
How to read music
Techniques for better sightreading
Body use (how a relaxed body can lead to better playing)
Music Theory (how does music work and how can I use this knowledge to my advantage?)
Mental aspects of music (overcoming stage fright, preparing for a performance)
All styles are covered from jazz to classical and everything in between.

About Mike

Everyone is different so the way I approach teaching trumpet is different for everyone! The goal, however, is the same. To be great trumpet players and have fun doing it. I'm here to teach anyone and everyone how they can truly enjoy and immerse themselves in music through the trumpet.

Hi. This is Jessica H. I came from a family with strong music background. Currently I just graduated from San Francisco conservatory of music with Masters degree. I am a very patient person who has huge passion about working with kids.I have been teaching piano over 15 years. Since I have been teaching a quite long time. I have had students who past the highest level of ABRSM .I can be more serious and push a student to get ahead, or simply teach to have fun - to appreciate and enjoy music. I have learned, is to expect the best, pay closest attention to the students - to what they are ready for, what they want, what they are struggling with, and have a good sense of humor. Inspiring and developing students passion into music.

Jessica is a professional. Her studio is set up to accommodate a student in maximum privacy and comfort. She Is a lovely young woman who obviously enjoys her craft and is skilled at teaching in a compassionate way yet sets a high standard for her student. It would be important for a student to be self-motivated to PRACTICE diligently. Jessica does not demand that a student practice, but expects that her student will have practiced. I compliment her teaching. One final note: she is kind.
Emily R.
Jessica is awesome! Full of positive reinforcement and very patience. I highly recommend!

I completely understand the struggles of first year guitar players. It can be a rough starting period, but it is possible. I know first hand how hard guitar playing can be at first, because I was not a natural by any means. I can show students different chord shapes and notes in a way that someone who has been playing for decades might not, because I am still learning too. I have been playing for about 5 years now, but every day I pick up the guitar I learn something new. With each new chord is a thousand new songs, and you will be learning the hottest and coolest songs by no time.

Hello, I am Nate, a college student at Virginia Tech (go Hokies!). I have been playing guitar for about 5 years now, but the struggles still come and go, as if I was a beginner.

On one occasion, she was 15 minutes late. Tonight she just didnt show up. No phone calls, no texts, no email, no nothing, just no show.

"Josh has taught my kids the fundamentals of playing the piano. My son had to stop piano lessons because he was overcommitted, but my daughter continues to work with him every week. Both kids have received important technical skills from him. But far more important than that, they have been inspired by him and have gained a love for music from him. Anyone can teach skills; Josh teaches how to love the art and craft. His passion is contagious. He teaches with joy and generosity. We started with Josh in person, but we, along with everyone, had to transition online. I was worried about it at first, but I can honestly say that his passion comes through the Zoom and my daughter still loves her lessons. I can't recommend him highly enough."

"Wonderful Teacher

I have been working with Julie for over a year now and I have nothing but great things to say about her. She is a fantastic teacher who has helped me expand my playing beyond what I thought possible. She really understands my playing goals and always gives me pieces of music that I enjoy but that continually push me forward. I feel very lucky to have her as a instructor."

"Kiah is super! She knows so much, is super friendly, and really warm. I worked with her as a fellow teacher at a music school in Washington state, and I often asked her for advice. She taught me many techniques and gave me advice that I implemented in classes with my students. I also learned from her myself. I saw her students advance really quickly; it was impressive. I can only recommend her! Best of luck in Florida, Kiah!"

"Comprehensive, Fun, and Professional

My younger brother and I both have taken lessons through Bill for quite some time now.

Bill has been fantastic, and can accomodate to players of all levels. I've been playing for years, and Bill is able to provide practice materials relevant to my musical interests, appropriately scaling up the difficulty of what we're working on. Ranging from famous straight-ahead jazz solos, to tricky classical etudes, I'm happy to know my overall musical technique, repertoire, and general skill will continue to grow at the pace right for me.

My younger brother is taking some more beginner clarinet lessons, and couldn't agree more. He always looks forward to lesson day, seeing what new notes and scales he'll get to play through!"
