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.

Please note that I only take serious students who will practice at least 30 minutes every day or 35 a day 6 days a week at home. I would like you to keep a log of how much you practice. This will enable you to make progress through the curriculum as you will be a beginner for the first 3.3 years, an intermediate for the next 3.3 years, and then an advanced student for 3.3 years. I will give you assignments to do over the week, and the next week we will go over them, learn something new and get new assignments. It takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert!

Dr. Spranza is one of the best piano teachers in the Bay Area. My two daughters take weekly lessons with her. She encourages them and empowers them to do their best. She teaches them both theory and practicals. They have participated in an informal recital and are now registered to take part in the MTAC Certificate of Merit program.

As parents, we see a big improvement in our daughters' piano playing skills. They even practice on their own, without us telling them to. All thanks to Dr. Spranza.

He completed the bachelor’s degree in music education and performance at Texas Tech University, and the Master’s in trombone performance, and a Performer’s Certificate, at the University of Denver.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are geared towards a set of goals that are created between the student's wants and my expectations for them to be successful at what the student wants to achieve. For each student, I use a different set of pedagogical tools designed to get them to the goals they want. The main goal I have for all my students is that their fundamentals on their instrument will be at the level that they can complete their goals with ease. Over their time with me, they will have the skills to coach themselves when they practice and tackle any music they come across.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide and music stand and their music. These are both things that they need to have at their home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach and perform both jazz and classical music. Almost any style that uses a trombone or brass instruments, I have performed in and have a strong foundation in.

Bill is a stand-up guy. My 11-yr-old beginner daughter is happy with her lessons so far and he interacts with me in a friendly and polite manner. He is respectful of our time and does what he says he's going to do. Can't ask for much more. We are looking forward to a summer of trombone lessons with him.

Locally there are no quality trumpet teachers within 45 minute of our home. My son, who has played in middle school for the last two years, started lessons with Chris online 3 weeks ago. Although I was a little pessimistic on how well my son would respond, everything has been great. Chris is very good with explaining concepts and is very patient. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for online trumpet lessons.

Aurora, CO

I have prepared many students for tryout pieces (solo, regionals, chair placement, etc). I also am experienced in tone improvement, endurance studies, range extension, and accuracy improvement. I use many different method books, but I prefer Arbans and Clarks.

About Nathan
My name is Nathan I am a 31 year old husband and father of 3. My wife and I have been teaching music since 2007.

I am an experienced teacher of guitar, drums, and trumpet. My students range from age 6-60.

All lessons will be held at our home studio in Aurora, CO. Our home was built as a recording studio and it's perfect for lessons. Our dedicated, sound-proofed, teaching room includes a large viewing window so the student can be seen by parents while they wait without causing unnecessary distractions for the student. No drop-offs, please.

My teaching methods are based 100% on the student's abilities.
Here is a brief look at what lessons with Nathan B. will look like.

*** Lesson Details ***
Guitar:

Beginning players- I prefer to teach from the Hal Leonard book series. This is a great start for most students. I teach th
e string-by-string approach using simple songs to start. Your first lesson will be a combination of reading notes on a page and reading chords on a chord chart. You will come out of the lesson learning at least 3 notes and one chord. Weekly goals are set and a practice routine is discussed.

Intermediate players- After a quick assessment of your abilities we will discuss your future goals as a player. We could pursue classical guitar with additional lessons in note reading and fingering methods, or we could focus more on chords and strum patterns if you prefer to sing and play your favorite artists.

Advanced players- this is where it gets fun. We go where you want to go. I will provide guidance based on your strengths and weaknesses. We will choose music that can display your strengths, and challenge your weaknesses. Remember, there's always someone better than you!

Drum:

Beginning players- All of my lessons follow my own, proven teaching method. All lessons take place with the student at the drum kit playing 90% of the time. I approach all drum lessons beat-by-beat always with a metronome. My goal for the first lesson is to teach at least one basic pattern. We progress through a series of hundreds of different drum patterns that become increasingly more difficult. Every week is a new opportunity to practice clean technique and improve internal timing.

Intermediate players- After a brief assessment of your abilities we will begin discussing concepts of pattern construction. You will start coming up with of your own patterns and ideas. I will provide guidance for more complex fills and I will give tips to help you figure out the right groove for the right song. Every week is a new opportunity to add another tool to your kit.

Advanced players- come and teach ME something! I'm still working on super triplets and sextuplets in 5/4 time :-)

I also teach trumpet at beginner and intermediate levels. I have prepared many students for tryout pieces (solo, regionals, chair placement, etc). I also am experienced in tone improvement, endurance studies, range extension, and accuracy improvement. I use many different method books, but I prefer Arbans and Clarks.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Drums
5 piece Pearl kit- full cymbals. Beginner half sized kit upon request.
Guitar- bring your own acoustic.
Trumpet- bring your own.
Chairs, stands, and some music provided.
Hal Leonard method book required for beginning guitar students.

*** Specialties ***
Acoustic guitar- Christian Praise&Worship, classical picking and positions, strum patterns.
Drums- 4/4, 3/4, 6/8, quarters, eights, sixteenths. Rock, funk, ballad, pop.
Trumpet- range, endurance, flexibility.

To me, the trumpet is a tool. You are the musician. I hope to impart to my students a fundamental philosophy of creating music and reaching beyond the physicality of the instrument.

About David
The trumpet is one of the most brilliant, pure, and emotive sounds of all instruments. Because its sound is produced by a physical vibration of your body, everyone will have a sound unique to themselves. It's why I fell in love with it.

Unfortunately, the trumpet is hard! I want to be your guide as you work to discover your individual sound and voice. My students can expect rigorous fundamental work to help them overcome the physical limitations of the trumpet and open up a world of music.

I am a Grammy nominated free lance studio trumpet player living in Nashville, TN as well as a touring musician with acts like MercyMe. I have played in everything from horn sections and musicals to big bands and weddings. My versatility as a trumpet player is pushed by the wide genre of music in Nashville. I stay busy playing with several of the top corporate bands Nashville as well as working with artist as part of the horn section. I am fortunate enough to be a part of many different bands in Nashville both live and in the studio.

My time is often split between playing and arranging. I write music for everything from high school and college marching bands to studio horns for an artist. I have a great deal of music theory knowledge that I will be happy to add into your lessons.

About Nick
I am much more than just another teacher with a degree. There is so much to be learned from someone who is actually playing your instrument for a living. I have played in many arenas as well as playing on the Castle in Disney World. I know what it takes to become the best you can be at your instrument. I look forward to getting started with you soon!

I have been taking trumpet lessons from Nick for about 3 years and have always looked forward to lessons. He has a very good ear for detail and knows what to do to help students improve their playing skills. His teaching style is direct and to the point, he knows exactly what material each student needs to practice on their own. I can confirm that lessons from Nick have helped me prepare for college music as well. Numerous professors I have played for have commented on my expansive repertoire and advanced technical skills. Nick Haynes is a well qualified instructor for intermediate players and those looking to continue through college.

It is important that the private instructor is completely engaged in the student’s learning and enjoyment of their trumpet playing. If the student isn’t enjoying their time, it is important to find out what’s wrong and how to adapt to that student’s specific needs and wants to positively influence their learning and motivation to learn. Music education between multiple different students is going to be different for each student. It is important for the music teacher to learn from their own teaching and accustom to each and every student to make the learning environment more welcoming and compelling for them. Learning about the student and how they learn only benefits the environment and helps the student have a more gratifying time playing the trumpet. Achieving a positive way of thinking about how to approach playing the trumpet is only beneficial to the student’s learning. When one is about to perform a work for trumpet and approaching it with a powerful mindset of having fun and ...
