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!

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.

John was great with my 4yo son. He was patient and kind. We look forward to more lessons
James M.
Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Hello and welcome to my studio!

Due to current events, I am more than willing to teach you online! I promise you will get the same quality of lessons as all my current students either started or switched to online lessons. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask through the Takelessons ask-a-question feature on the front of my profile.

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. With the recent pandemic going around, I know that many parents and students are concerned about meeting for lessons in person, and rightfully so. That being said, I am more than willing to p

A very well prepared teacher, and does a very good job of explaining things, even abstract concepts. Killer lead player as well!
Lindsey
Andrew is a great music teacher! He goes above and beyond our lessons. He accommodates his lessons to meet my son’s interest and keeps the lessons fun and educational.
Ryan
I just want to start out by saying Andrew is flexible with scheduling. It’s very helpful. But my son enjoys the lessons with Andrew. He said Andrew taught how to breathe better and can’t wait until the next lesson.

"We feel lucky to find Mr. Jerry V. as our 12 year old son's trumpet teacher. His course is very well structured and planned, using classical training materials covering various basics and skills my son needs to learn and master to make step by step progresses. His teaching is efficient and effective, with beautiful demo, which is very important for his student, especially young ones. His practice assignments are also well designed and planned, with which my son has been making solid progress. He is also very easy to communicate and is nice and kind. With the well structured course, assignments, experienced and professional teaching, an excellent trumpet player himself, we are happy with Mr. Jerry V, and will keep him as long as possible."

"Last year our 10-year old daughter started playing the trumpet in Beginning Band. Over half-way through the year she missed a lot of school due to illness, got behind and was forced to drop-out of band. Over the summer we started online trumpet lessons with Mercedes to help our daughter catch up with her peers. We feel so fortunate to have found Mercedes! She is an EXCELLENT teacher. She is enthusiastic about music/playing trumpet, creative in all the ways she helps our daughter improve, positive and patient (SO important when teaching beginners) and she truly is amazing at keeping our daughter engaged during every lesson. During each 30 minute lesson, our daughter makes noticeable progress! Plus Mercedes keeps the lessons fun so our daughter happily participates. Thanks to the progress she has made with Mercedes, she is feeling confident enough to return to Second Year Band later this month. We plan to keep up the lessons with Mercedes and look forward to her ongoing support and guidance during our daughter's important beginning-to-intermediate instrument learning stage."
