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 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 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

It is generally true that you get what you pay for. I have a doctorate in Trumpet Performance, and I have taught all levels extensively for over 25 years, including at five universities and multiple all-state high school students in Texas. The trumpet method books I have written are my curriculum, and with a commitment of three lessons, the student receives a free 230-page book in PDF format, valued at $50. My teaching style is fun and engaging, including all styles, though my primary focus is classical.

About Daniel

As evidence of my expertise on trumpet teaching, I've written six method books on the subject! Your success is my number one priority. I teach fundamentals (breathing, embouchure, finger technique, articulation, etc.) in very unique and effective ways. My teaching philosophy: To eliminate distrac

Finding a highly competent teacher who has been "around the block" and is a PROFESSIONAL PERFORMER, is not easy. Dr. Thrower has a wide spectrum of experience ranging from Jazz Band, to Brass Quintet, to British Brass Band, to Orchestra -- including Solo performance(s). Besides that, he is a composer and has written several trumpet study books. So he brings all of those components to his knowledge base -- an excellent resource base.

A significant improvement for me, due to his input, was to change my mouthpiece to a Giddings Stainless Steel model. It was one of the most profound improvements that now allows me to practice/play longer -- with less effort and greater control of my horn.

A key point for me to make to ANY student.... IF you are serious about the trumpet and you want to advance, then you MUST find a good teacher who will help DRIVE you to excellence. Because trumpet is such a demanding instrument, and you have such limited time to practice (embouchure-oriented restraints), you cannot afford to develop either bad or compromising habits/methods. I have seen other promising students become "ruined" because they did not have the proper tutelage.

The reason why the best universities and music conservatories staff with the best teachers is because it is the only way to produce the greatest players. If you are serious about your horn, and want to move BEYOND the "crowd", then you need a teacher who is above the norm. Dr. Thrower will make it worth your while -- I know.

"Fantastic player and an even better teacher! Svend is the type of instructor that exudes the passion he holds for his art with every word he says and every action he takes. His ability speaks for itself but what separates him from most other teachers is his ability to connect and resonate with his students and their needs. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced-level students all have a place in his studio and he can provide you the tools you need to be successful better than almost anyone out there."

"I'm 58yrs old and a comeback player. I haven't played in over 40yrs. Yesterday was my 2nd class with him. And I was amazed at how my playing is already showing progress thanks to Gregory. He puts you at ease almost immediately. He is very patient and through his instruction I've gained more confidence in my playing. Gregory gets 5 stars for his demeanor, trumpet and overall music knowledge. He is the go to instructor in my opinion.
