Beginners or advanced players. I have studied trumpet with many of the best teachers in America, including John Haynie, Bert Truax, locally Gilbert Castellanos and Arturo Sandoval. The list is too long to name the all,but I have had opportunities to learn from many of the most famous players.

Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!
John R.
Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

Whether you're just starting on the trumpet or you're preparing for state band auditions, I've got the skills and insight you need to become a great trumpet player. In high school I was an all-state jazz trumpet player, and I went to college on a scholarship to play jazz trumpet. I keep lessons fun and interesting by incorporating the kinds of music you enjoy with the kinds of music you need to achieve your goals.

About Megan

I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginni

Megan is an excellent music teacher that helped show me different ways to overcome challenges that I was having. She is very patient and kind and she worked hard to make connections with me and personalize my lessons.
Willa
I honestly think one of the best decisions of my life was deciding to take a lesson with a music teacher I found through a friend. I was nine and desperate to find a teacher who would take me seriously and help me grow as a musician. I remember first liking her Harry Potter necklace, and then being so surprised that she taught me in an hour the chords I had been trying to learn on my own for six months. Six years later, Megan has become not only my mentor, best friend, and biggest supporter, but has also modeled for me how to be a strong, confident woman in today's society. She constantly pushes me to be better, and she is always there for me whether it be for music theory questions or movie suggestions. I would not be where I am today musically, lyrically, or emotionally without Megan and her amazing lessons. I owe so so much to her and continue to learn so much from every class. She is everything I hope to be and the best teacher anyone could hope for.
Amanda
Megan has been instructing my sons for over 8 years. She began with piano but as their interests grew and changed, she helped them move to learning the electric bass, drums and ukulele. My kiddos have very strong personalities. I do not put them in classes with just anyone. Megan has consistently showed up with strength and excellence, inviting my sons to not just grow in their love for music but in their character. They have learned to persevere when things are challenging and Megan is there to guide them in that with a mastery that is hard to find anywhere else. As an educator myself, I have been deeply impressed with Megan’s musical ability and her absolute to connect with and instruct my kids. She has been a huge part of their development, not just in the arts but in their lives.

All students will be expected to play from a variety of repertoire and methods in many different styles of music based on their level of playing.Outside of playing the instrument students will learn breathing exercises and will be expected to be actively listening to professional recordings. I hold my students to a high standard and expect them to always play at their best.

About Michael

I have experience working with students from beginning students picking up the horn for the first time to college freshman. I have studied with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Lyric Opera, and Kansas City Symphony. I have a Bachelor of Music from the University of Central Missouri

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.
