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.

My first instrument and the beginning of my lifetime musical education. I've played trumpet in big bands, small groups and classical orchestras. The trumpet is versatile, its exciting, and it can be fun.

About Steve

Learning to play music should be fun. Learning to play the songs you like and listen to everyday is a good first step in that direction. As early as I can remember our house was filled with music. My parents had records of the popular music of the time as well as movie soundtrack albums. At ei

Online Trumpet Teacher

Experienced trumpet teacher/professional player of ten years. My goal is to inspire and help each of my students grow with custom tailored lessons primarily using exercises which I create specifically for each student. I make sure that all my students have a very strong understanding of the foundation and basics of trumpet playing so they learn to play the correct way from the start. I am well versed in many genres new and old from jazz and classical to funk, pop, reggae and hip-hop. Students must have their own instrument. I provide a music stand and blank staff paper for students coming to my home location while students I drive to must have music stand.

Max, is great teacher. He understands the students needs and tailors his pace accordingly. He is easily able to spot a weak spot in a student's technique and help them correct it easily. He is also immensely patient and easygoing.

His skills with the trumpet are top notch. He makes trumpet playing so easy. Max is easily one of the best music teachers that I have come across.

As a teacher, a nurturing, encouraging, and comfortable environment can be expected for any student who chooses to pursue trumpet or piano lessons with me. I believe music lessons should be fun and reassuring for students, in addition to, providing constructive feedback for their musical development.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

An instrumentalist since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning trumpet lessons.

About Thomas

Piano, woodwinds, trumpet, composition Chords, sight-reading, theory, jazz, classical, and pop No one ever regrets learning an instrument… yet many grow old wishing they had taken music lessons! A talent they’ll be able to develop their entire life, your children will thank you for giving them

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.
Armen T.
Excellent teacher!

"Mr. Brown has been instructing my son in playing New Orleans style jazz music over the last two years. He inspires my son to practice and work on the necessary fundamentals of performance while also having fun with improvisation and other jazz techniques. With Mr. Brown's guidance, my son has earned the first chair position in his high school band. I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are a beginner or an advanced musician, studying with this Grammy Award winning artist will help you reach the next level on your musical journey."

"Caleb is an amazing trumpet specialist and a wonderful wonderful trumpet teacher. My son who is now 12 started taking private lessons with Caleb in Dec 2014 as a complete beginner. He has progressed so much in a little over a year that he is the best trumpetor in his middle school. And he may be performing in a jazz band with high schoolers this fall. This is greatly because of Caleb. He is incredible with children and teens. He is patient, fun, and firm. We are so glad we found him."

"I have known and worked with Chris for four years. As a trumpeter, Chris is truly exemplary. He is beyond capable in all styles of music, and is an extremely creative and innovative performer. He has experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities; from young and mature beginners to college level students taking auditions.

I have played with Chris in brass quintet, duo, trio, orchestral and wind ensemble settings, and have never stopped being excited and inspired by his playing. As a soloist, Chris has presented many beautiful solo performances that involve and communicate with audience members. He is not afraid to break down the wall between performer and audience, a refreshing take on the classical artform.

Along with being a fantastic performer and educator, Chris is an advocate for the outreach and sharing of music. He has worked with nursing homes, hospitals, and local school districts to share music with more people.

I highly recommend Chris as a teacher, and believe any student who has the opportunity to work with and learn from him is on the best path to reach their goals."
