I have gladly devoted the past 20 years of my life to understanding this wonderful instrument.

About Tom
I've performed and taught in a wide variety of settings. My early professional experiences have included 3 years in the Army Band, several cruise line contracts, and freelance work as a performer and composer. Through these times, I've learned to excel in many styles. I recently graduated from NYU, where I was an adjunct faculty member. Here, I also performed and worked with a wonderful faculty including Kenny Werner, Brian Lynch, Chris Potter, Ralph Alessi, Tony Moreno, and trumpet guru Laurie Frink, who all inspire me as a musician and a teacher. While in New York, I was a faculty member at Douglaston School of Music and Art, where I worked with younger students .

It is my belief that discipline and technique are necessary elements that allow emotion and creativity to thrive. I also recommend a healthy dose of listening to what
you love. Through this process, I strive to inspire my students, fellow musicians, and listeners.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will guide you to your goals. I write my own materials for each student's individual goals. If you want to learn a song and I don't know it, I will learn the song with you, sharing the process. After several months of study, you will have an understanding of not only what to practice, but how and why to practice.

Tom was AWESOME! I had a heck of a time finding someone who actually teaches Bugle. I have only had one lesson with Tom however, I am very excited to continue with him. Tom did not rush anything, he didnt watch the clock, he actually wanted to do more playing than talking about this form, music theory etc. etc. I had experienced with other Teachers. Everyone wants to start playing "something" as soon as possible and Tom dove right in to playing or trying to get me to play, HaHa in just the first 20min.

I offer lessons with a fun and encouraging atmosphere and attitude. Using a variety of musical materials and methods, students experience a fun and motivating way to learn. I help students find fun ways to keep up on practicing and how to enjoy the time spent on their instrument. My students enjoy performing frequently to gain confidence as young musicians. Students are challenged to progress on a weekly basis through quality technique and theory methods that are stimulating and comprehensive.

About Dominik
Hi, I'm Dominik and I graduated with a piano performance degree and a music education degree with trumpet from Metropolitan State University of Denver where I studied with Professor Hsing-Ay Hsu, and Dr. Micheal Hengst. I began music at 8 years old, with piano lessons under Ann Riggs. A few years later, I also began trumpet lessons and joined several choirs. I continued exploring music, traveling with community choirs and bands, and joined the piano program at the Denver School of the Arts during High School. I really enjoy ensemble performance and I've participated in wind ensembles, orchestras, chamber ensembles, accompanying, brass ensembles, and pit orchestra for musical theatre while attending Metro State University.

I really enjoy teaching music and believe that each student can accomphlish many great things through music. I hav
e been trained in and have performed in many different genres and styles and offer a wide range of musical knowledge to meet my students needs.

Dominik is an excellent teacher who connects well to the kids. We only used him briefly for our kids but wish we hadn't committed to a friend of a friend for future lessons. If things don't work out with the new teacher, we hope Dominik will be available to come back.

Hello! If you would like exciting, challenging and most importantly fun trumpet lessons, study with me! I use songs/repertoire the student can choose from as the basis of musical concepts. Ear training, music theory and all technical aspects are taught consistently based on the student's skill level. The student's happiness, progress, and interest are of great importance to my teaching methods. For younger students, a curriculum is used to help gage the student's progress and understanding. For older students a curriculum is also used, however, it is more lenient in regards to the student's needs. I have experience teaching all ages from 10 to 50 yr old players, thus I understand the importance of teaching in an organized, linear way. Personally I have been playing trumpet for 17 years, teaching for 6, received my Bachelors in Music Education, and will receive my Masters in Jazz Performance from NYU. My performing experience ranges from orchestral to jazz, reggae, musical theater, and

About Alexandra
I received my Bachelors from UMASS Amherst in trumpet performance and music education. While attending I was trained to become an educator for K-12 grades, receiving experience as an elementary and high school assistant. I have taught private lessons for the past 6 years to all age groups. Throughout the years I have learned a lot about various teaching methods, the importance of curriculum, and how to hold a student's interest.

Recently, while attending NYU to receive my Masters in Jazz Performance, I have been teaching Undergraduate non-music major students trumpet and piano. All of these students have varied in musical expertise, interest in artists/genres, and of course personality and learning style. Through this I have gained much experience in how to teach the same concept different ways. Reading music, classical and jazz tongu
ing, phrasing, sight reading, and range are just a few concepts I focus on with students.

As a classical trumpet player, I understand the demands of becoming a soloist or orchestral member through learning the necessary repertoire and technique. As a jazz trumpet player, I am able to teach ear training, how to create lines and understand harmony, as well as the physical demands of range and articulation.

I am also able to teach piano, I have 4 years of classical piano experience. In addition to my personal studies and teaching experiences. I have taught piano to a range of age groups as well (5-25). Based on skill level, I use certain method books to include scales, chords, reading music, rhythm, and basic musicianship skills.

It would be wonderful to have you as my student, to train, work, and grow together as great musicians!

Alex is a great teacher! I took private lessons with Alex through my university for a semester, and I am thankful that I did. She helped me immensely with my form, and I also learned a great deal about jazz and jazz theory that I can use again in the future. I would definitely recommend Alex as a teacher!

I was an older student but beginner trumpet player when I first started taking lessons from Alex. I didn't have much of a musical background but her clear passion about the trumpet, and her enthusiasm, patience and encouragement as a teacher made me a fan of the trumpet as well. Her lessons were varied and tailored to fit my experience level and individual playing style which kept them interesting. By introducing different and creative ways to work on technique Alex continued to make me a better player. I would highly recommend her.

I teach the trumpet from the perspective of a professional performer. I have been academically trained, but my teaching breaks from traditional academic norms. I have experience performing in almost every style of music that involves the trumpet. I use that experience to help you learn to play the music you want to play, the way you want to play it. We approach the lessons this way whether you are interested in jazz, classical, pop, R&B, salsa, or tejano. You name it, I can get you there.

About Eddie
Eddie Lewis has a unique teaching style that helps you learn how to teach yourself. He teaches a learning philosophy he calls The Art of Accumulative Practicing. When done correctly, Mr. Lewis' methods will make every minute of your practice time count towards your progress. If you practice ten minutes, then you will be ten minutes better when you put your instrument in its case.

Trumpet students should know that Mr. Lewis has written a number of method books, some of which have been used by trumpet players around the world to help them with their tone, range and endurance. If you are having trouble with your chops, Lewis' reputation as a "Chop Doctor" may be precisely what you're looking for.

Eddie Lewis is also an established jazz improvisation teacher. Some of his past students are considered the best jazz musicians of our day.

Mr. Lewis has extensive knowledge in both classical and jazz disciplines. His extensive study and performance in both genres on the horn offer invaluable knowledge to cater to his students. I think the defining factor of Mr. Lewis is that he will guide his student to where the STUDENT wants to go. He will always work towards the STUDENT'S goals, the STUDENT'S sound, and the STUDENT'S aspirations. He never makes the lessons about himself, or sounding like him. He makes lessons personal and STUDENT-GUIDED. And with his endless vault of knowledge, there is no limit to how far he can take a student.

Mr. Lewis remains professional but can also develop sympathetic, personal relationships with his students. He is always organized and EVERY bit of work that he does for his students remains on the top of his priority list on his computer. His organization makes every lesson expedient and effortless. He remains to be the most caring and thoughtful teacher and human that I have met.

I have had multiple trumpet teachers in the past, but no one I have studied from amounts to a fraction of what Mr. Lewis is. Mr. Lewis isn't just a great trumpet teacher, or classical teacher, or even jazz teacher. He embodies the role as a mentor and guide through the study of expression through the medium of music, and has helped me become a more mature individual.

How does your service stand out?

I have a lifelong passion for music, and specifically, trumpet. I am grateful for the opportunity I had as a young musician to study under high caliber professionals. I have studied under dozens of symphony musicians and Hollywood free-lance professionals. I have been a part of many prestigious music programs, both competitive, and scholastic. I attended Brigham Young University of Hawaii, where I was granted a scholarship to major in music performance. I have had students in the past, but am new to thumbtack. I look forward to finding students interested in entering the world of music, specifically the trumpet.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

To me, any musical involvement is always a joy. I grew up with a passion for music. In the 5th grade, I switched from the violin, to the trumpet. As soon as I heard the voice of the trumpet, I instantly fell in love. The voice of the trumpet resonates with my heart. The trumpet is such a beautiful ...

I have helped many trumpet students place in All-State ensembles, compete for seating placements, and earn top marks in solo and ensemble competitions.

About Caleb
I am excited to start offering my teaching services on trombone, euphonium and the rest of the instruments from the brass family here at takelessons.com.

I have played with notable groups such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and am a former member of renowned Axiom Brass Quintet. I studied with Jay Friedman and other members of the Chicago Symphony at Roosevelt University for five years. My teaching philosophy falls into the Arnold Jacobs Song and Wind school of thought. I teach a lot of mouthpiece buzzing, and fundamental exercises to get my students playing with golden singing sounds!

Currently I am starting my second year in the DMA program at the University of Iowa where I am also a graduate teaching assistant in the trombone studio. In addition to the teaching I do at the University I am also a low brass teaching partner a
t West Music in Coralville.

Currently I am affiliated with two professional orchestras in the Eastern Iowa area. I am the second trombonist in Orchestra Iowa based out of Cedar Rapids, and will be filling in as an interim second trombone for the 2017-2018 Quad City Symphony season. I have been playing in professional orchestras for the last ten years and can teach you orchestral style, and audition preparation.

In addition to my orchestra playing, I was also a member of Axiom Brass Quintet from 2012-2014 where we were the first prize winners at the International brass competition held in Passau Germany.

As a soloist, I was also the grand prize winner of the Chicago International Brass solo competition in 2012 on euphonium.
Currently, I am also an active member with the New Chicago Brass, a modern brass ensemble based out of Chicago. I am comfortable teaching all brass instruments for all ages and skill levels. I look forward to answering any questions you may have in regard to taking lessons on a brass instrument.
