Private Trumpet Teacher

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.

Ms. Laverty has been my son’s private trumpet teacher since the summer of 2012. She is patient, kind and very supportive of his efforts in playing the trumpet. In large part, she is the reason that my son enjoys playing trumpet and continues to thrive as a musician.

From the beginning she tailored her lessons to include the music that my son was interested in and also added increasingly more complex music to work on and master.

Sandra has taped him playing during lessons to show him how and where he can improve in body position, quality of sound and other nuances. She regularly uses her laptop computer to show videos of performances that support the lesson and also assigns various Internet sites to view for exposure to other musicians and styles.

Sandra regularly provides opportunities for my son to perform in public. He has performed at the annual CMEA event at San Jose State University, and other smaller events where he played solo on stage. They have both joined in at a local café for practice in improvisation, as my son loves to play jazz. This has really helped in his jazz solo opportunities at school. She has also organized a quartet of student trumpet players to work together on various music pieces and then they all performed together for family and friends. This was a unique experience for the children to practice and play together and perform as a group.

My son is also interested in basketball and baseball, and Sandra has been very flexible in scheduling lessons to accommodate my son’s athletic and school schedules. After about 6 months of lessons, she offered twice a week lessons to capitalize on my son’s enthusiasm and increase the speed of musical advancement so his confidence soared and he wanted to play more because he liked doing something he felt he was good at. He kept this schedule for about a year and then back to once a week to allow for more time for other interests.

During middle school, my son played trumpet in both the Advanced Band and also Jazz Band classes. This past summer, Sandra again offered twice weekly lessons to get ready for his high school debut. As a result, he was chosen to play first chair in the high school jazz band. He was also one of only two freshmen that were accepted into the most advanced band class (also known at Wind Ensemble) at Lincoln High School.

I recommend Sandra Laverty, without reservation, for any trumpet teaching opportunity.
Daphne R.
Sandra was very helpful with my 11 year old. She taught a good mix of theory and practical experience. She helped my daughter build skills and was very encouraging.

My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

Hello and welcome to my studio!

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure, and making a nice sound will come next. And later we will work on the more intricate aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range, while learning new songs!

If you are already familiar with the basics of playing trumpet, we will work on the specific areas you want to work on.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

About Andrew

As a teacher, I want nothing more than my students to be happy playing music while attaining their goals. I started trumpet as a young elementary schooler and began teaching private lessons in 2013. I had very poor technique up through high school but landed a jazz performance major in colleg

I happen to play with Andrew in a local Jazz ensemble. He is the solo chair and I Play lead trumpet. I have been playing with Andrew for a year or 2 and he is an OUTSTANDING player! His solo’s are some of the best I have heard in my 45 years playing. He takes his playing seriously and I have every confidence his teaching skills on the trumpet are top notch also! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get better at playing the trumpet!
Parent
Andrew has been wonderful. My son started lessons with Andrew in our home and easily transitioned to on-line this spring. He’s punctual every time regardless of method. I appreciate his flexibility and understanding as sometime things do come up. During the closures due to Covid, it was nice to keep some level of normalcy knowing that the trumpet lesson would always continue. My son feels more confident with his music and we hear an improvement!
Emerson
Andrew is an outstanding instructor that is able to use his great insight and experience with the trumpet to effectively teach people of all skill levels. He is always prepared with an engaging lesson plan that is personalized to each individual’s playing styles and goals. The concepts that he teaches will change your perspective on the trumpet, allowing you to have more productive practice and see real improvement in your playing. Andrew can truly help you grow as a trumpet player.

Helping me with fundamentals that I long since had forgotten, to exploring new techniques that improve my sound - my fellow band mates have asked me what have I been doing as they definitely have noticed the improvements I have made since starting lessons with Caleb. Highly recommended!"

"I started taking lessons with Mr. Gallo when I was in 6th grade. I am in tenth grade now and I am a phenomenal player. Whether I needed help with a playing issue or had an event and wanted to be ready, he always knows the answer. Every time I think I have reached my peak in playing, he surprises me and bumps me to the next level. Solo ensemble is a band event in which you would go to and have judges judge your playing on a particular song. This year I am playing a level 7, which is the highest level of difficulty you can play for this and will ever see in the real world musician life. Most professionals can't do this. No one you can find will be as good as a teacher as Mr. Gallo."
