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!

Frank
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.

I am an outstanding teacher because the trumpet never came naturally to me. I had to develop not only a strong work ethic, but a smart one too. I have dealt with every problem imaginable that comes with playing a brass instrument. Through constant dedicated, and systematic work, I have been able to accomplish my greatest dream ever of being a professional trumpet player and teacher. The struggles I have gone through with my playing career are why I care so much about the well being, and growth of every one of my students

The trumpet is an amazing instrument! The trumpet is unique because it has a loud and powerful sound. I am so excited to teach you more about the trumpet. I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the trumpet including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

Carla
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.

I never felt like lessens with Mercedes were a teacher to student environment. It was very chill and more like friend helping friend. That to me is the best relationship to truly learn. Mercedes helped me learn a sense of confidence that is not only used in Trumpet but in life."

"Wade helped me find my sound in not only music but also my life. He gets to know each and everyone of his students on a personal level and tailors their lessons to fit their goals and needs. I entered his lessons at a beginner level on trumpet and over the next two semester, I was able to work my sound quality up to several years of experience within a short period of time. He is someone who has worked in both the field of education and the music business. With his knowledge he was able advised me through my music, business ventures, and life goals. Out of all of the instructors I have taken lessons through, Wade has been the only one to find a way to teach the material while impacting and interacting with today's way and age of learning. He uses music, books, audio, and media to help suit all ways of learning. I have and still recommend his work today to anyone who is interested in learning music and pursuing the arts."
