All students will be expected to play from a variety of repertoire and methods in many different styles of music based on their level of playing.Outside of playing the instrument students will learn breathing exercises and will be expected to be actively listening to professional recordings. I hold my students to a high standard and expect them to always play at their best.

About Michael

I have experience working with students from beginning students picking up the horn for the first time to college freshman. I have studied with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Lyric Opera, and Kansas City Symphony. I have a Bachelor of Music from the University of Central Missouri

Testu was an excellent teacher. He was patient, kind, encouraging and very knowledgeable. He helped me to prepare for auditions, develop a practice routine and find more enjoyment in playing!
Mika
I have known Tetsuya for many years now having gone to high school with him. It was incredibly inspiring to watch him not only perform, but also teach my brother trumpet as well. He was an incredibly patient and kind teacher and helped my brother improve not only on his technical skills and passion for music, but also his confidence in his abilities to play the instrument. He is a kind-hearted, compassionate and patient person and this translates into his music and his teaching.
Tomo
Tetsuya is not only a talented musician, as many people already know, but he is also an incredibly kind and patient teacher. He taught my son not only about technique and musicianship but also the love and fun that can be had through music. He knew the level that my son was at and guided him through his learning and this allowed my son to continuously improve. My son was incredibly luckily to have Tetsuya as his first teacher.

Private Trumpet Teacher

Hello and welcome to my online music studio!

I have been teaching elementary and intermediate brass professionally for over 6 years. I use a differentiated instruction method in my lessons which centers around tailoring instruction to meet individual student needs, interests, and goals. Instruction varies based on the type of learner, the age of the student, and whether or not they have prior experience.

In private lessons, I teach students about basic theory, ear-training, sight-reading, scales, proper breathing, embouchure development, and much more. I will help students prepare for school-related events such as District Band auditions, Solo and Ensemble Festival, and coach them as they advance through middle and high school band and/or orchestra.

A little about me: I began private French horn lessons at age 11 and continued lessons until age 17. I currently teach online and in-person music lessons in the DC/Northern Virginia area. I have played horn in ensembles such as the ...

"My daughter's lesson with Holly was amazing. My daughter started playing trumpet at the age of 6. I bought her a used trumpet and she basically taught herself how to read music and how to play. By the time she was in middle school, after several years of elementary school band class, where everyone learns an instrument, my daughter had grown bored of her trumpet. She was great at it, but there was no challenge and very little inspiration for her to play. When she met Holly for her lesson that all changed. She was able to talk with Holly and share with her many of her trumpet and band experiences. Holly was enthusiastic and positive as an instructor. She really was able to connect with my daughter(a teenager) and encourage her. My daughter left her lesson feeling very interested in trumpet again and wanting to explore a variety of music she could play on her trumpet. For the next few days she was listening to various trumpet players online and different music styles, at Holly's recommendation.
I can confidently recommend Holly as an instructor for any student who wishes to play trumpet. I believe she is the perfect instructor for my middle school daughter."

He has a way of communicating with our children, who range in age from 10-16, that gets his point across and inspires them. If you are looking for a brass teacher Gary is the one you want!"

"We just had the first lesson, and Troy came well prepared and was thorough and engaging. I could tell that he has lots of experiences and he was quick to learn about the student's level and needs.

He is also fun, so he would be an excellent teacher especially for the young students. My son is 11 yr and he started picking things up from the first lesson. We would recommend Troy for beginners interested in becoming better trumpet players."

"Jeremy was great! My daughter’s first lesson went very well. Her first instructor joined the military, so we were left to select someone new. By God’s grace and a lot of help from Michael at TakeLessons, we landed on Jeremy’s profile. We couldn’t have gotten a better instructor the second time around! It’s like an extension of the first lessons! Jeremy is knowledgeable, kind, sincere, laid back, patient, and encouraging. What more could we ask for? As a mother, I really appreciate his communication with me via phone and email. If you are looking for a great instructor, you can do no better than Jeremy!"
