Private Trumpet Teacher

I teach students of all ages on all the brass instruments. With more than 30 years of teaching experience, I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of both students and parents, and I like to make our lessons fun and productive. I cover all the basics of playing, from correct breathing to correct style, and I impart a deep knowledge and appreciation of music to my students as well. I offer flexible scheduling, with sessions varying in length from 30 to 90 minutes, to help fit all budgets.

About Franklin

I am a San Francisco native and a graduate of Lowell High School and San Francisco State University, where I earned degrees in music performance and education. I teach all the brass instruments at my studio in Belmont, at Skyline College in San Bruno, and at Manor Music in Pacifica. I have also

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

My son has looked forward to trumpet lessons since we began working with Roxanne. We've only experienced instruction via Zoom, yet we all feel he's learned quite a bit and he feels he has become a better trumpet player. As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility and clear communication. I have confidence in her teaching style and the apparent vision she has for this point in my son's musical journey.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!
