Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!
John R.
Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

John was great with my 4yo son. He was patient and kind. We look forward to more lessons
James M.
Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

Chris has been great with my middle school band student teaching/coaching the fundamentals and making trumpet fun again. My kiddo looked forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys band again! His confidence level while playing has soared. Definitely recommend.
Keira F.
Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.
Catherine M.
Fantastic Experience!

As a colleague of Chris' I can heartily recommend his teaching to any trombonists wishing to hone their skills as musicians. Chris focuses on the individual needs of each student, working to tailor his lessons to meet their specific needs and face their unique challenges. His attention to detail and patience helps each student build a strong foundation in musicality and fantastic brass playing. I recommend him highly as both a superb educator and performer!

Have you hit a roadblock in your trumpet playing? Is your child not seeing progress from playing in their school band? Need help with your All-State audition? Picking up a hobby for the quarantine? Look no further!

My approach to the trumpet is one that starts with the sound of the music playing in my head. Once I can get you to hear beautiful trumpet sounds playing in your own head, you will find that playing the trumpet is as easy as blowing spit wads through a straw!

My students get a weekly dose of fundamentals that include long tones, flexibility, and articulation. Once those are in place, we can apply those skills learned to a musical etude. You can expect to cover as much material (or as little) as you want in a given week; I will pace your lessons according to your ability level and desire. But with the right amount of deliberate practice, I can help you become a truly great trumpeter.

Let's get this fired up!

Keagan W.
Ruben is a very passionate trumpet player who’s plays and teaches from the heart. He’s a very patient and enthusiastic teacher who believes in his students. I was impressed with his philosophy that each student has a “trumpet voice” within them that he can help them find. It made a lot of sense to me and has inspired me. Thanks for all you do Ruben!
Hayden H.
Hayden really enjoyed his first lesson with Ruben. Ruben was skilled at making it work in an online format. My son is a bit shy, but Ruben is friendly and very encouraging.
Michael
Ruben is very patient and willing to explain things as many times as I need to understand. I always feel like he’s prepared the lesson just for me and challenges me just the right amount

You are the center of the universe. We'll start right where you are and go anywhere you want to go. Beginner or advanced, hobbyist, gigging pro or comeback player in any contemporary genre, I can help you improve your playing, increase range and endurance and understand the musical aspects of your favorite songs. Want to play out but nervous? We can discuss eliminating stage anxiety (good for public speaking, too) and how to win over your audience.

I'm a student, too. Let's learn together.

About Tony

I started as a student on piano when I was 8 and trumpet when I was 10. I've been a student ever since. That's a very long time. And what I learned as a student makes me a better teacher. I never stop learning and growing and striving to get better. Why? Because it's fun! I'd like to share that joy

Tony is a great trumpet player with lots of experience to share. We've had multiple SKYPE lessons using the online format and he is dependable, punctual and articulate. Easy scheduling, etc. Plus, he's a straight-up cool, laid-back guy. You'll enjoy your time studying with Tony and gets a lot of practical (and practice-able) info during your lessons.

"Learning from Mr. Higgins has been a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff! As a freshman high school trumpet player, I needed a lot of help on various things. Mr. Higgins went above and beyond in helping me improve on those tricky things and always made me feel at home and not at all pressured. For any student that truly wants a professional's advice and is serious about getting better, Sean Higgins is one of the best."

"Mr. Gallo is an excellent instructor. He worked with my son to get to know where he was as a student and then created instruction based on that. He also was able to pinpoint what areas my son needed to work on to become a better musician.

"My name is Dee. I have been a middle school band teacher in the Clarkstown School District for over 20 years. I play trumpet in a local concert band and jazz big band each week. I have taken trumpet lessons with Vincent for a year and a half. Through his instruction and encouragement I have made great strides in my technical abilities, range and endurance. I appreciate the well prepared insights and materials he has for me at each lesson, whether it is written material, or "youtube" video insights he has researched and thought helpful. I am very impressed with his musicianship when he models, plays duets, and performs for me. His trumpet performing is wide ranging and always of the highest caliber, whether live, or in recording. As a teacher Vinnie always shows sincerity and humility which puts his students at ease and in a great place to learn."
