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.

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!

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.
Daphne R.
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.

The most successful musicians are the ones who tell a story through making music. The secret to this success is a commitment to constant improvement and cultivating a strong musical voice. These are the cornerstones of my experience teaching and performing music. Throughout high school, college, and even beyond, I’ve sought out opportunities to share music and connect with audiences regardless of where I am. I believe music is something deeply personal and a gift that should be shared with others. Study with me and I will help you find your voice so you can share with the people in your life.

About Chris

I've been teaching students from complete beginners to college level for a decade. I hold a Bachelor's in Music from the University of Michigan ('16), a Master's in Music from Penn State University ('18), and a Graduate Certificate from the University of Southern California ('20). Through my years

Great first ever trumpet lesson! I learned many things that included: maintaining, setup, hand placement, holding notes and more. Chris is an experienced instructor that has a positive energy and He’s very encouraging.

I have known and worked with Chris for four years. As a trumpeter, Chris is truly exemplary. He is beyond capable in all styles of music, and is an extremely creative and innovative performer. He has experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities; from young and mature beginners to college level students taking auditions.

I have played with Chris in brass quintet, duo, trio, orchestral and wind ensemble settings, and have never stopped being excited and inspired by his playing. As a soloist, Chris has presented many beautiful solo performances that involve and communicate with audience members. He is not afraid to break down the wall between performer and audience, a refreshing take on the classical artform.

Along with being a fantastic performer and educator, Chris is an advocate for the outreach and sharing of music. He has worked with nursing homes, hospitals, and local school districts to share music with more people.

I highly recommend Chris as a teacher, and believe any student who has the opportunity to work with and learn from him is on the best path to reach their goals.

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 :)

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

"Hunter is a wonderful teacher. I began trumpet lessons with some basic knowledge of reading music but I had never picked up a trumpet before. Hunter's 8 lesson beginner lesson plan is so great for a beginner. It comes with music, fingerings, and follow/play along youtube videos that help me practice outside our lesson together. Hunter is a nurturing teacher that works with your skill level and will cater these lessons directly to your needs. From lesson one I was playing music! I would highly recommend this teacher."

"I can't express enough in words how wonderful Mr. Gallo is as a music instructor. He has been teaching both my boys trumpet for ten years now. My older son has achieved Superior Ratings in Solo and Ensemble for 6 years straight, was selected to perform with the All County Jazz Band for 3 years and contributed to MSD High School winning numerous awards in Jazz, Concert, Symphonic and Marching Band. My younger son started his first lessons last year (6th Grade) and achieved Superior Ratings on his first Solo and Ensemble. All of these accomplishments are due to Mr. Gallo's excellent teaching skills and the knowledge of how to get you or your child to reach their full potential. I strongly recommend Mr. Gallo to any parent or student who wants to learn from one of the best."

"I do have to say this has been a great experience and to mention this is our first time trying private lessons ever! My son (11) started taking online lessons with Vinnie and it has been a great experience for my son. This week will be a month of online lessons with Vinnie and I am pleased we chose him. We have never done in-person lesson but at my son's level I feel the online lesson has been very convenient, especially during these abnormal times. Vinnie is a very thorough instructor and has provided the materials for every lesson each week and goes over every detail during the lesson. He takes the time to explain the 'why' behind correct form and technique. My son has expressed that he sees progression in his trumpet execution. During these weird times, I believe this was the best choice we could have made for my son. Vinnie has an incredible background and resume especially with his experience teaching music to younger students. I would highly recommend Vinnie as your trumpet instructor no matter your experience level. Thank you Vinnie for what you do."

Jennifer's teaching style is one of positive encouragement and incredible patience. She took the extra time to find music of interest to my son to enhance and make the lessons fun, especially due to his frustration with some of the more boring pieces of music assigned through the school.
