I have spent over 12 years studying trumpet. During this time I have focused on jazz and it's impact on pop, rock, and R&B music. Coupled with my expertise as a lead singer, I can take your performance skills and stage presence to the next level. I also work great with kids, creating a fun learning environment to get them excited about different styles of music.

I believe making music is about having fun. Making music with others, studying recordings or playing music with yourself at home is all just parts of the fun that music has to offer. Lessons with me will be custom-tailored to emphasize the parts of trumpet playing that make you excited about music. So, whether you’re an absolute beginner, or have previous experience, I want to help you discover a deep connection with music. Together, we’ll explore the music of Gustav Mahler, Louis Armstrong, British Brass Band, and more!

Our 3rd grade class enjoyed a 6-week virtual class with Svend. He shared his knowledge and experience about jazz with us. We all learned a lot! I recommend Svend!
Carlos
Svend is one of the most genuine people I have met thus far. His passion for music and especially brass music is something rarely seen nowadays. I had the good fortune of meeting him at California State University Northridge when he conducted our brass ensemble there. His knowledge and experience being from Denmark gives him a very unique perspective about playing that few other musicians can compete with. Very highly recommended.
Megan
Svend is a very fun and engaging music teacher who always gives 110% to his students. He tailors his lessons to the needs of his individual students and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Learning to play the trumpet is a rewarding experience. Many people think you need to be big and tough to play the trumpet. But it's quite the opposite - it is an instrument requiring precision coordination between the embochure (lips) and the fingers. It's more akin to precision surgury than an athletic competition.

I will help the student develop a good foundation to play the trumpet well. Everyone wants to play loud and high but developing a good sound is crucial before attempting advanced techniques. I will help the student make sure they are developing and progressing in the right direction.

About Sean

I am a professional pianist who primarily performs but also loves to share the gift of music through teaching. My specialty is jazz but I play most other genres and am a firm believer of learning the fundamentals. Iteach all ages and levels, and want my students to be having fun! And if your pia

"Andrew was one of my section leaders for the trumpet section in the Temple University Diamond Marching Band his senior year, and he definitely was an excellent one. Not only is he a very talented trumpet player, but he was very reliable and answered all the questions I or anyone else in the section had in an efficient and timely manner. Overall, Andrew would be a great teacher as he is very helpful and is good at what he does."

He knows his stuff and makes it easy to understand. He focuses in on the student. I learned a lot about technique and air control from him which helped me improve as a musician. Good teacher. Would recommend to anyone."

Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!"
