With over 10 years of playing the trumpet under my belt, my specialization is in Jazz, along with theory. I can help beginners grasp the intricacies of playing trumpet, to advanced players looking to broaden their knowledge. Too many times have I taken private lessons from unenthusiastic players that take the process too seriously. Music should be fun! Which I prioritize in my lessons. I look forward to working with you!

About Tom

I have been playing trumpet for over 10 years. I've been gigging around the New Haven area for about three years now, and have played numerous styles. From traditional jazz, to bebop, to New Orleans Second Line, to Funk. Being immersed in these styles has made me very accustomed to playing in those

Teacher not only provided help and techniques for my range and playing but also taught me about the theory and scales behind soloing. I am now the lead trumped in my high school band and jazz band thanks to weekly lessons
John
Provided a lot of insight into what I was doing wrong on the instrument, and gave me good exercises to do weekly. Definitely recommend.

I have been teaching viola for seven years. Though I am classically trained, my interest in music goes far beyond classical music. I am constantly listening to various genres of music and consider myself a forever learner, loving everything in music from Prokofiev to the Flaming Lips. It is my job to help guide my students through their musical journeys, whether that is helping them get into their regional orchestra or teaching them that one song they've always wanted to learn. I teach out of the Essential Elements and Suzuki Method books. Though my lessons are fun and relaxed I will always give my students that extra push when needed. My goal is to help each student reach their personal success and to instill a love for playing music.

Tools for lessons:

Music Stand
Rosin
Shoulder rest or sponge
Previous method books (if you are not a first time learner)
Metronome
Pencil

At first I was very apprehensive with the online format as never tried that before, but needn't as XiaoMing was an excellent teacher. Helped me to translate passages in simple Chinese for me to make in my presentation. Corrected me on my tones which I needed. A clever guy who is flexible to do Business Chinese or Conversational Chinese. Recommended.

"Great teacher

Very very good uke teacher. He goes the extra thousand miles. When I give him my songsheet of what I want to learn He already had played it on his music box to show me the right rhythm. When I got a songsheet that was for guitar he transpose it to ukulele. He listened carefully and give me feedback on how to improve my playing. He showed me the correct finger position for the harder chords and give me ideas of how to practice certain strums. Very nice and professional ! Makes me want to practice my uke more. Thouroughly enjoyable experience !"

"I've been with Eric for about 2 years now, and have seen much improvement in my skills under his training! (And I came in as a beginner without any prior training nor any exceptional singing skills.) He's very knowledgeable, works to the abilities of and targets the individual needs of each student. He's also very flexible and accommodating with his scheduling and understanding to personal situations that come up. But really most importantly he's super supportive and really helps to build confidence. Definitely would recommend whether vocal or musical instrument. 10/10, A++, Great teacher!"
