Private Trumpet Teacher

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!

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!

Private Trumpet Teacher

I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance.

Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes!

Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.

Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.

He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

In depth fundamentals and solo work. I am 18 myself so I can relate to younger students. I can help with band music, fundamentals, orchestra music, solos, or group band work. I have been playing for 8 years and have been to plenty of state honor bands, regional honor bands, and solo ensembles. First lesson is free for 30 minutes introducing each other and going over the repetoir.

"With over 25 years of experience as an elementary school band director, Vincent works well with students of all ages from beginners to professional levels. I studied Jazz improv with Vincent for many years. He has a vast knowledge of music theory (melodic and harmonic concepts).

Vincent is one of the top Jazz Trumpeter’s in the world. He is a virtuoso Jazz soloist and a very strong lead Trumpeter as well. He is also well versed in the world of classical music. Vincent toured worldwide with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra, Buddy Rich Big Band, and Horace Silver. Vincent is currently touring with Renaissance (a progressive rock band), and frequently plays in horn sections for a multitude of rock bands. He is one of the most consistent and reliable musicians I’ve ever known.

Vincent is a very reputable musician with a great sense of humor. He plays with so many different bands and always bringing his incredible playing level to every gig. Vincent has recorded and produced several of his own CDs as a leader, and has performed on many recordings for several decades. With this vast background Vincent, he is able to teach various genres (jazz improvisation, rock, classical, and Brazilian concepts).

I strongly recommend Vincent as an instructor for “Take Lessons”. Don’t miss this opportunity to study with this incredible musician!

"Bobby is a great teacher! During my time taking lessons, he always found a way to explain concepts in a manner that I could relate to. Coming from flute, I knew basic fundamentals of reading music and structure and Bobby took the time to make suggestions that were along the lines of my musical experiences and strengths. If you're looking to learn the trumpet, I'd definitely recommend Bobby because he's able to break down concepts and is very patient. If you've been playing trumpet for awhile and wish to get even better, I'd suggest taking lessons with him because Bobby definitely has the resume, experience and knowledge to help any trumpet player go further."
