Private Trumpet Teacher

As a performer I have played in the Los Angeles and Orange County area for the past 3 years as a member of big bands, jazz combos, and 4 piece brass ensembles. I have taught in both one on one settings as well as full ensemble classes and have seen great progress and success in my students in each. Overall my focus in teaching is on sound quality, technique, and stylistic relevance.

John is very patient and very responsible for his teaching. We are happy to have him.

I think that there should be a little more of note testing and learning because without learning the notes, it’s hard to play without knowing how to read the notes. But other than that, everything’s good.

Private Trumpet Teacher

My two basic goals at the core of my teaching philosophy:
To help the students develop the skills on the trumpet, through technical and physical development, with the long-range goal of developing a student’s ability to successfully pursue a career of teaching and/or performing if that is their choice.
To help bring his or her soul into each performance on the trumpet, and to help the student learn to tell a story, paint a picture, and create a mood – the language of the music.

About Dr. Arthur

Arthur as a professional trumpet player is a skilled musician in classical, commercial, and jazz idioms and has been one of L.A.’s and New York's first call trumpeters for commercial recordings, television and motion pictures, and live theater. He has contributed to albums for many popular artists,

Because the lessons are in our home, it’s been a very relaxed, enjoyable experience for our son and that was important to us. His former teacher was great, but Dr. Pugh has pushed him to an entirely different place musically. Dr. Pugh’s professionalism and enthusiasm for music are inspiring and he has brought our son’s trumpet playing to another level.

Experienced music teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! While clarinet is my primary instrument I have a special attachment to the trumpet. My original clarinet teacher was in fact a trumpet player and is currently a section leader for one of the United States Air Force Bands. I have also given private lessons to 4 trumpet players - some of whom have gone on to do very well at the high school level.

Michael started with our son doing in-home lessons and was absolutely stellar! He was patient, enthusiastic and talented. During COVID, we have switched to on-line lessons and he is just as great. He is the best teacher we have had and Jacob looks forward to his weekly lessons. Thank You, Michael.

He is professional and patient yet he meets you where you are. I had played piano many years ago and he quickly assessed where I am today and asked what I wanted to accomplish at this point. He showed me things that I was never taught all those years ago. He is kind and so easy to work with. Can't say enough about him. Wasn't sure if I could play again after so many years. I have had hand surgery and can't wait to continue my lessons. He showed me that I can. Great for this old lady, I mean elderly person.

Anthony is a skilled musician that has wonderful talent in teaching people (of all ages). He is always kind about how he professes but also takes teaching seriously. he has an amazing capacity of patience and is willing to work with a student until they are comfortable and confident in their skill. He has taught me things from bass clef to crochet. His sense of humor makes his lessons light and easy to let the information sink in. This instructor works well with anyone and has passion, pride, and genuinely loves what he does. A++++++++++++++

"Jesse is the perfect instructor for my family. We have been with Jesse for 9 months and my 11 year old son still looks forward to his lessons and practicing. We started at beginner trumpet, then added voice lessons and will soon start the family guitar lessons. Jesse's lessons are never boring. He always does something new and always asks what the student wants to play. Jesse is more than an instructor because he has taught my son to love music. He has exceeded my expectations."

If my son says he wants to learn a specific thing then Jaden has been super obliging. He even helped show us how to clean the trumpet in the tub one day.

"I began playing trumpet again after a 45 years break (I played in HS). I was concerned because I tend to be very self-conscious and nervous. Holly is amazing, not only because of her technical expertise, but because she has taken all the stress and worry out of learning to play. She has made music what it should have always been ... FUN! I love our lessons together and enjoy practicing. She is a wonderful instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to play an instrument.

I'll be glad to answer any questions anyone may have."
