Private Trumpet Teacher

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

An instrumentalist since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning trumpet lessons.

About Thomas

Piano, woodwinds, trumpet, composition Chords, sight-reading, theory, jazz, classical, and pop No one ever regrets learning an instrument… yet many grow old wishing they had taken music lessons! A talent they’ll be able to develop their entire life, your children will thank you for giving them

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

We will work on strengthening fundamentals as well as building music theory knowledge. The focus will be classical, but can also include jazz and learning how to improvise. Each student enters with a goal, and I want to work with them to reach it.

I can't say enough good things about Robert. He has instructed my 10 year old son for a year. Robert has kept my son engaged with his instrument, and music in general, and we have seen a steady improvement in his playing. He has been kind and gentle at times, yet firm when needed. An all around excellent teacher.

After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

Jonathan has made a great impression with my son. He displays a great combination of patience and encouragement with Nick. I have seen an improvement in his trumpet skills as well as his confidence.

"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."

Bobby presents his lesson in a way that is easy to understand. He takes the time to explore what my difficulties are. Then he presents me with ways to challenge them. Bobby also has a good understanding of music theory. He explains and demonstrates musical concepts very thoroughly."
