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!

I had a great experience taking piano lessons with Caleb and would highly recommend him to any friend who was looking to take trumpet or piano lessons. He made sure to teach the theory behind the music, as well as the technique of playing it, and encouraged me to feel free to choose the direction, pace, and focus of the lessons.

Caleb is the best trumpet instructor I have ever had! He is thorough, explains his methods and why he is teaching what he is teaching, helps his students develop good practices that will be extremely beneficial down the line, and is flexible with how to structure a lesson depending on what you want out of it. On top of all that, he is amiable, interesting, and professional. I feel very good taking trumpet lessons from a professional trumpet player; especially this one.

The trumpet is a colorful and exciting instrument played in many styles of music throughout the world, from jazz and classical to funk and soul to reggae, afro-beat, and Balkan music. In addition to covering the basic technical requirements of the instrument, I'm particularly interested in the many genres in which the trumpet can be found, and I like to focus on the styles of music that most interest and challenge my students. I have been playing trumpet for more than 18 years, and I teach my students valuable brass exercises based on lessons I learned under the tutelage of John McNeil, Laurie Frink, and Walter White. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and trumpet calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility.

The trumpet was the very first brass instrument I ever played. My older brother played it, and I looked up to him and wanted to be like him. This was the main reason I chose the instrument in fourth grade. Although I only played the trumpet for two years in school, I have continued playing off and on throughout my music career.

I can help any brass student learn the basics of sound production, tone quality, breath support, intonation, tonguing and slurring, and scales.
