Lake Forest, CA

Having played in groups like Wind Ensembles, Orchestras, Quintets, Jazz Ensembles, Brass Bands, Combos, etc., I can and will teach any and all styles from beginner to advanced levels. I will push you as hard as you want to be pushed from your lessons, and can help you become competitive in auditions for jobs, gigs, honor bands, and school. I have a methodical approach to the instrument which includes not only the physical aspect of the trumpet, but the mental aspect, which is largely ignored.

About Aaron
I recently graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Music with an emphasis on trumpet performance. I'm currently teaching and working with my time between now and when I begin a Master's program. I am also a trumpet player in the Army National Guard, and am very active with gigs and playing taps with the Army.

As an instructor Aaron is outstanding. He's professional and has impressive attributes being a UCLA grad and participating member of the armed forces; but more so, he's encouraging to his students and in our son - he positively encouraged a passion for the trumpet and a high regard for music in general.

I've been teaching trumpet for 20 years, and I've found one thing to be true....If you're not having fun, you're not going to learn. Learning a musical instrument should be something you look forward to, and I strive to make that the case for each and every student. We'll have a blast, and you'll come away from your lesson feeling encouraged and looking forward to putting the techniques you've learned in motion towards becoming a better player.

About Derrick
Derrick has been teaching private lessons since 1995 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home or at his studio. He emphasizes a fun learning environment and personalizes the experience for each student. Derrick wants you to learn the type of music YOU are interested in, and will find a fun but productive way to get you there.

Derrick received his Bachelor of Music degree from Southern Methodist University in 2001, and continued his studies in the Master's program at the Cleveland Institute of Music. After finishing in Cleveland, he headed to NYC to study and perform, followed by a move to Los Angeles in 2005, where he has been playing in groups ranging from rock bands to orchestras ever since.

I teach the trumpet from the perspective of a professional performer. I have been academically trained, but my teaching breaks from traditional academic norms. I have experience performing in almost every style of music that involves the trumpet. I use that experience to help you learn to play the music you want to play, the way you want to play it. We approach the lessons this way whether you are interested in jazz, classical, pop, R&B, salsa, or tejano. You name it, I can get you there.

About Eddie
Eddie Lewis has a unique teaching style that helps you learn how to teach yourself. He teaches a learning philosophy he calls The Art of Accumulative Practicing. When done correctly, Mr. Lewis' methods will make every minute of your practice time count towards your progress. If you practice ten minutes, then you will be ten minutes better when you put your instrument in its case.

Trumpet students should know that Mr. Lewis has written a number of method books, some of which have been used by trumpet players around the world to help them with their tone, range and endurance. If you are having trouble with your chops, Lewis' reputation as a "Chop Doctor" may be precisely what you're looking for.

Eddie Lewis is also an established jazz improvisation teacher. Some of his past students are considered the best jazz musicians of our day.

Mr. Lewis has extensive knowledge in both classical and jazz disciplines. His extensive study and performance in both genres on the horn offer invaluable knowledge to cater to his students. I think the defining factor of Mr. Lewis is that he will guide his student to where the STUDENT wants to go. He will always work towards the STUDENT'S goals, the STUDENT'S sound, and the STUDENT'S aspirations. He never makes the lessons about himself, or sounding like him. He makes lessons personal and STUDENT-GUIDED. And with his endless vault of knowledge, there is no limit to how far he can take a student.

Mr. Lewis remains professional but can also develop sympathetic, personal relationships with his students. He is always organized and EVERY bit of work that he does for his students remains on the top of his priority list on his computer. His organization makes every lesson expedient and effortless. He remains to be the most caring and thoughtful teacher and human that I have met.

I have had multiple trumpet teachers in the past, but no one I have studied from amounts to a fraction of what Mr. Lewis is. Mr. Lewis isn't just a great trumpet teacher, or classical teacher, or even jazz teacher. He embodies the role as a mentor and guide through the study of expression through the medium of music, and has helped me become a more mature individual.

Mark is an incredible instructor for my 10 year old son. He is experienced in working with younger players and my son really enjoys learning from him. We were hesitant to try online lessons, but Mark has this mastered this venue; having instruction in our our home has been super convenient. I highly recommend Mark as an online trumpet tutor.

I have been teaching brass for nearly 6 years. My students have gone on to pursue music degrees in college and have performed around the country. I focus on fundamental technique while tapping into the student's passion for music and performance. I rely heavily on communication with each student: finding out what their goals are and encouraging them to have an opinion on their playing and their improvement process. I love to encourage growth both as a musician and as someone enriched by music!

About Kenneth
I am a 24 year old Kmher-American musician based in the Los Angeles area. I gig regularly around LA and Orange County in my tamborazo Aguila y Serpiente, and have also performed and recorded professionally as an independent musician. I studied trumpet at CSU Fullerton where I played in just about every ensemble I could. Although my main study is of the trumpet, I’ve also picked up guitar, drums, piano, and singing over the years. As well, I’ve been lucky enough to teach/mentor all kinds of musicians/performers from the beginner to the college level. I spend most of my time performing classical music, but I am also versed in jazz, rock, rap, and other styles. I’m also very proud to have spent 4 years in the Santa Clara Vanguard where I was able to experience being the elite of performance and leadership.
Music isn’t just a passion of mine
, it’s practically my life, and I enjoy discussing it and learning more about it each and every day!

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.

About John
My name is John. I am a graduate of the music performance program at The University of California at Riverside. There I studied under several talented teachers including Dr. Tim Labor and Dr. Barbara Bennett, as well as Trumpeters Don Clarke, Richard Chasin, and Joshua Welchez. Since graduating I have been engaging in some freelance work both as a one on one private instructor, as well as a technician for Azusa High School's Jazz Ensemble.

In general I have always prized the value of personal instruction. Having come from a family of primarily educators I am well aware that the value a single teacher can have on a student is immeasurable. This appreciation has only been compounded since I have begun to teach myself. Though it takes time in music, visible progress is the one of the more profound feelings of accomplishment that can be fe
lt. More than anything, that progress and achievement is my goal in teaching.

Take lessons with a experienced teacher that actively performs and teaches. What makes me a good teacher is the fact that I struggled during the first few years that I started playing. I had a work through those struggles in order to become the musician I am today, so I know how to break things down and to cater lessons to each individual student. There is no cookie cutter method for all, we each have our own issues to work on. Some naturally gifted teachers will just tell you to play something and make it work...but since I had to work hard to become successful, I can use what I learned to help you to achieve success. I will help you to build a strong fundamental base and to turn your weaknesses into strengths! Whether you are preparing for school band or ensemble, for honor band auditions, college auditions, or solo and ensemble festivals, I would be happy to help you to become the musician that you want to become.

About Christian
I've been playing brass for over 20 years, and have been teaching for about 20 years as well. I am married, have two young children and two cats. I'm so blessed to have had the opportunities to perform and travel as a musician, and I wouldn't have made it to this point with out the Lord's blessing and without people in my live teaching me, mentoring me, and supporting me. It took a lot of work to get to this point, and if you work hard you can get there too. We all start in the same place, which is, knowing nothing, and we go from there! I would be happy to help you to get there as well.

Currently, I perform as the principal euphonium with the 40th Infantry Division Band of the Army National Guard, the principal euphonium of the Southern California Brass Consortium, and the principal euphonium with the Salvation Army's Western Ter
ritory Staff Band. I also play with my church brass band at the Salvation Army!

I have experience performing as a soloist in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Jersey, Atlanta, Seattle, Norway, United Kingdom and most recently Angola. I've also performed in Alaska, Arizona, Denver, New York, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Germany. I enjoy playing in almost any medium from Brass Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Big Band, and even Bavarian Octoberfest Bands. I've also been known to play a little valve trombone in contemporary worship bands, but don't tell any slide trombone players that because they tend to get jealous!

I have a passion for helping people grow and improve as musicians, whether you are 8 years old or 80 years old, or any age. We can all improve and grow!

Christian is a great instructor!

He is patient and he is very thorough. He'll make sure you learn something new every lesson and he will ensure your growth as a musician. Along with teaching me how to play through difficult passages in my music he also taught me breathing techniques, tone quality, and many other great skills! Thanks to him, I was able to win a soloist competition with my bass trombone!

If you ever have a chance, take lessons with Christian and you will not be disappointed!
