Private Trumpet Teacher

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 normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

I bring 42 years of experience as a performer and teacher to my lessons.
What I have learned in the world of performing I incorporate into my lessons, always based on the personal needs and goals of each individual. All are different and deserve the personal tailoring of their education to fit their needs. I use recorded materials as examples and as accompaniments as well as have materials both printed and other available to be shared with the student. I like to touch on all styles of music and at all levels. The student will learn breathing techniques, tone development, finger and articulation techniques, range development, improvisation, melodic interpretation, jazz study, and much more. There will even be music and trumpet history mixed in on occasion.
Mostly it's about enjoyment of trumpet and music and how our lives are enriched by them. Lessons in music are lessons in life.

About Steve

He is professional and patient yet he meets you where you are. I had played piano many years ago and he quickly assessed where I am today and asked what I wanted to accomplish at this point. He showed me things that I was never taught all those years ago. He is kind and so easy to work with. Can't say enough about him. Wasn't sure if I could play again after so many years. I have had hand surgery and can't wait to continue my lessons. He showed me that I can. Great for this old lady, I mean elderly person.

I teach all levels of trumpet with a completely custom lesson plan designed for each student. Trumpet playing should be fun and as effortless as possible!

We will cover:
How to play trumpet (tone, range, articulation)
How to read music
Techniques for better sightreading
Body use (how a relaxed body can lead to better playing)
Music Theory (how does music work and how can I use this knowledge to my advantage?)
Mental aspects of music (overcoming stage fright, preparing for a performance)
All styles are covered from jazz to classical and everything in between.

About Mike

Everyone is different so the way I approach teaching trumpet is different for everyone! The goal, however, is the same. To be great trumpet players and have fun doing it. I'm here to teach anyone and everyone how they can truly enjoy and immerse themselves in music through the trumpet.

She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes."

"Justin is an outstanding teacher. My 10 year old son had been been taking in-person lessons for a year and a half with another teacher. A few weeks ago I learned about Justin's online classes and signed up. Any doubts that I had about online instruction ended after the first lesson. My son is improving greatly. This is his review, "He's an excellent teacher because he has good teaching skills!" Justin uses helpful materials, he has a clear methodology, he's thorough, and as a current performer he's inspiring. We plan to continue with Justin weekly in the school year."

"Andrew and I have been friends since my first semester in college. He and I are both Jazz trumpet players, so I was able to make a great connection with him from the start. Andrew is an amazing trumpet player and has knowledge in many different subjects like use of air, range, and lip injury recovery. I have played with Andrew for four years in the Temple Diamond Marching Band and have worked with him as a co-section leader of the trumpet section for two years. I know first hand that Andrew is a great player and a great Teacher! I would recommend him as a teacher to students in a heartbeat and I know that you will not be disappointed with him for trumpet lessons."
