JR is excellent in assessing a student's skill level. Once he has determined it he immediately begins challenging the student with fun drills that focus in on improving areas where the student is struggling. Not a moment of the lesson is lost, everything is focused on moving to the next challenge - although patiently.

I've been playing trumpet for 18 years, and I'm anxious to pass along my love for the instrument to others of all ages! I teach a variety of styles with my experience performing many kinds of music from classical to hip-hop. Whatever your interests I can get you playing with a healthy approach to brass playing and solid fundamentals!

As a first time student, Caleb took the time to explain the basics of playing the instrument, and focused both on strengths and weaknesses. Already booked our next session! I strongly recommend Caleb

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).

As a trumpet player, I feel confident instructing beginners and advanced students on this instrument. I tailor my lessons to students individual needs, using many different respected trumpet methods to meet the challenges of the individual players.

My 1st Trumpet lesson with Katie went well. I need the actual exercise music that
we worked on ?? Also, I was wondering if we could do a lesson somewhere out in the open. Like a hall, church, or bigger room, maybe my apartment ??

Thanks a lot Katie for your expertise, it is much appreciated.
Sincerely...... Ron Hooper

As a French horn player and teacher, I have taught many trumpet players as well. Although there are some fine differences in technique between trumpet and French horn, trumpet is a little bit easier to play. My trumpet students have had a high success rate and have moved up the ranks in their schools' band and orchestra trumpet sections.

Our son has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Hawes for 2 years and we couldn't be happier! He is a wonderful teacher, and we have seen our son grow and learn and get excited about lessons! Mr. Hawes has patience in working with students, and I am always amazed at his knack for getting even squirrely little boys to sit still and get engaged in a lesson! Mr. Hawes is a wonderful teacher, who is passionate about his students and loves working with them, which is apparent in each lesson. We are truly blessed to have found such a wonderful teacher for our son, and would highly recommend him.

Sara is the kindest piano instructor. Although it's online teaching, my daughter has continued to embrace her learning and advance to a higher level. Sara is patient and teaches in a way that my daughter (10 years of age) understands. I appreciate the opportunities Sara provides for my daughter to perform before a Guild judge to challenge her learning further. My daughter has been with Sara for about three years and we're blessed to have her in our lives.
