Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

"Hunter taught me beginner trumpet and he's no doubt one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very rigorous without being intimidating and puts great emphasis on encouragement so that you feel motivated to practice and get better for the next lesson. You can tell he's a very disciplined musician himself and the atmosphere of the lesson is always relaxed. You know you can ask him any question you may have as many times as necessary. Without ever neglecting technique, he had me trying tunes from the very begining so that I could see how technical exercises immediately transfer to making enjoyable music. He has many different tools to tackle a specific blockage you may have in the learning process."

"Learning from Mr. Higgins has been a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff! As a freshman high school trumpet player, I needed a lot of help on various things. Mr. Higgins went above and beyond in helping me improve on those tricky things and always made me feel at home and not at all pressured. For any student that truly wants a professional's advice and is serious about getting better, Sean Higgins is one of the best."

"Tina has provided our daughter 11 year old daughter with outstanding lessons as a beginning trumpet player this past summer! Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!"

"Will is a really excellent teacher! I started with absolutely ZERO experience and he was kind, patient, and a really excellent start for any new student. We worked mainly on fundamentals, breathing exercises, and embouchure technique the first few weeks before jumping right into learning basic songs and music theory. He tailored the lessons to my ability and gave me pointers throughout to make sure I was staying consistent.

I would recommend Will to anyone that is interested in tackling the trumpet, from beginner (me) to advanced. Thanks Will!"

"I have known, performed with, and taught with Vincent for over thirty years. I am a professional trombonist and the Performing Arts Chair at Saddle River Day School. I ran an Arts-In-Education band that performed big band jazz at schools in the NYC area for over twelve years, and Vincent was a band member. Vincent is one of the world's greatest trumpet players and jazz improvisers, and he is an excellent communicator. I have watched Vincent teach countless times, and he loves working with young people and passing along his craft and experience. He has a very warm personality and a great sense of humor. I perform regularly with Vincent in a variety of world-class ensembles, and just standing next to him on the band-stand is like taking a lesson!"
