Trumpet is the most physical instrument that requires your whole body to work efficiently. Understanding the breath and how to relax the body goes a long way in learning the trumpet.

About Matthew

Anyone can learn a musical instrument. I started from a blank slate which through my own interest was able to improve my skills to perform the music I love.

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

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.

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

//clinician, professional trumpet player & maker// Over the past 26 years I developed my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way.

The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier.

I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes.

If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less.

I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.).

I'm ...

John
With Mr. Hackl, you get not only world-class training and experience, but also access to the best equipment and technological skill!
Morty
Franz is a master musician.
As a teacher he is able to take the student from their level of playing and introduce them to new concepts on the instrument, thus raising their musicianship to much higher levels.

I highly recommend studying with Franz.

"Caleb tunes right into your experience level and has a ton to offer right from the beginning while being really easy to work with. We talked about goals and trumpet history and started structuring a new warmup routine. With Caleb's diverse performing experience, he can teach you about hip hop, funk, jazz, orchestral, and small ensemble brass work (plus probably some other stuff I don't know about yet)."

"I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman"

"Mr. Gallo is phenominal! My son has learned so much in such a short time. He is patient, understanding, and very professional. He has a knack for adapting the lessons to suit the student’s needs, not the other way around, which is beyond helpful since my son battles with ADHD. His years and years of experience, along with the long list of sincere reviews posted by others, speak for itself. My hope is that my son will be first chair every year while in school, and I believe whole- heartedly that Mr. Gallo will get him there. Simply put, great teacher, and great methods. You absolutely, 100%, get what you pay for. The world needs more teachers like this. Happy student, and happy mom!! :)"

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.

Colin was supportive and warm and encouraging, and kept me at ease and willing to keep trying. He seems knowledgeable in alot of areas of music too, which is an added bonus. Highly recommend!"
