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!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.

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!

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.

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to the advanced level. This is pretty much standard practice within the brass family :)

About Reut

Hello there! I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music. As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I

Online Trumpet Teacher

My passion is creating music and inspiring others to create music. I learned to read music at the age of 6 and shortly after started playing the trumpet. The opportunity to learn the language of music is such a great gift with many benefits beyond creativity. My passion is to give this opportunity to other young aspiring musicians. My goal is to guide each student according to their individual needs to reach their goals.

About Patrick

I began the trumpet at the age of 8 while in elementary school in Monroe, CT. I learned to read music at the age of 6 while playing the Tin Whistle. Irish music was offered at the Gaelic American Club my family was apart of. While in CT, I played with several groups: Litmus, an experimental jazz gr

"Mr. Gallo has taught me musically for almost 7 years and I have been taking lessons with him now for almost 6. In my opinion, he is one of the best music instructors I have ever worked with. He is wise, informative, understanding, and flexible with scheduling lessons. He makes sure to do what is best for his students. Without him, I wouldn't be the musician I am today. From having to deal with the physical problems and even improving my musicianship, Mr. Gallo has been able to steer me in the right direction with advice from his past years of teaching and playing. Even after marching in the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps for the past two summers, I have always resorted back to taking lessons with Mr. Gallo. With his help, I have been able to play the highest ranked solos and earned the highest evaluation in my state's Solo and Ensemble events. Now, I am a senior in high school and I feel very confident with my decisions of pursuing music in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Gallo as a trumpet, brass, and even music teacher."

"Ruben has been tutoring me for about 3 months now. I have been playing for seven years and I have never noticed a change in my playing with any other private Tutor. We started out with basics it was very boring at first but then we started getting into more advanced stuff. Ruben is a fantastic tutor hands down. He is super nice, understanding, and very helpful. Both me and my family have noticed a Dramatic difference in my playing and sound quality. If anyone is looking for someone to help them pick Ruben."

"Caleb has been teaching my son trumpet for the past 4 years. He is a very talented teacher who is musically gifted, as well as patient and kind.

Loving music and playing trumpet has enriched my son's life, both socially and emotionally. He is currently first chair in his middle school band and plans to pursue band in high school. His pleasure in playing with his peers and his pride in his accomplishments are wonderful to see. Last year, he played "New York, New York" as part of a three piece band at a school event and in March 2017, he will play the entire score of the Lion King with the pit orchestra for the 8th grade play.

But the best part as a parent is seeing that he often walks around the house humming a random tune under his breath, even when he isn't aware of it. It makes me smile to see him be so happy!

Thank you, Caleb!"

"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!"
