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.

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.

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.

My son has taken lessons from Michael for a year and a half and is in 7th grade. As an advocate for children's music development, I am so grateful our son has taken lessons with Michael. My son is highly motivated to play and takes such joy in playing, and this is in large part, thanks to Michael. What i particularly appreciate is his wholistic approach. They work on understanding how the instrument fits with arrangements and other instruments. They work on site reading, ear training, music theory, tone, and a variety of styles of music. He is patient and constructive. Best teacher if you are serious about trumpet.
Rita
Mike has been a fantastic trumpet teacher for my son. My son started with him over two years ago, and we've kept the lessons going online during COVID. Mike is friendly and very easy to work with. He has helped to engage my son in trumpet by having him listen to jazz and classical recordings and try to recreate phrases that he likes, by encouraging him to really listen and sing the pieces that they are working on, and by working with him on his school band music. I appreciate the ease of communicating and scheduling with Mike, and my son loves to chat about sports with him before the lessons start. I really value all of the hard work that Mike has put into teaching and encouraging my son to love music. I enthusiastically recommend him as a teacher.

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!

Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

"My jazz instructor in High School led me to Bobby three years ago. He taught me a lot of things about playing the trumpet and greatly increased my ability as a trumpet player. He is very, and inspired me to want to get better at playing through encouragement and his high quality playing. Every lesson is very personal and fun. I know that sounds cheesy, but I looked forward to every lesson I had with Bobby. Bobby is a very skilled player, and unlike many great players, he can teach just as well as he can play. Bobby and I also spent a lot of time talking about Jazz theory. I am now fairly knowledgeable about theory, one of the best in my school, and I learned it all from Bobby. If you take lessons with Bobby your trumpet skills will vastly improve, and if you want to learn jazz, Bobby teaches jazz theory as well as he teaches trumpet, if not better. The last thing I have to say is something that Bobby told me at our very first lesson, "we will both learn from each other, you will learn trumpet and jazz skills, and I will learn how to effectively teach you." Every lesson with Bobby is extremely personal, and he is constantly improving his already great teaching skills."

"My 11 yo son has been taking trumpet lessons with Bobby for about half a year now. We are so glad to have found Bobby, as he is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He is always timely and thorough with his lessons. Bobby finds music pieces which are just challenging enough for my son, and my son seems to enjoy his time with Bobby. I also like his balance between teaching music theory and instrument instruction. Bobby explains concepts clearly, and relates well to my son, with a sense of humor and patience. My son has clearly improved in just a few months, and we cannot be happier!"

First of all, Andrew is always on time and ready to go and he communicates all the small details very well. Second, he is a great trumpet player and teacher. Andrew helps my son work on all aspects of the trumpet and he has really improved his overall understanding of the instrument. My son has been playing the trumpet for 7 years and he is still learning new techniques from Andrew. Finally, Andrew provides written notes and/or a follow up email with instructions for my son to work on before the next lesson. I really enjoy listening to their lesson. I would definitely recommend Andrew for trumpet lessons!"
