I believe making music is about having fun. Making music with others, studying recordings or playing music with yourself at home is all just parts of the fun that music has to offer. Lessons with me will be custom-tailored to emphasize the parts of trumpet playing that make you excited about music. So, whether you’re an absolute beginner, or have previous experience, I want to help you discover a deep connection with music. Together, we’ll explore the music of Gustav Mahler, Louis Armstrong, British Brass Band, and more!

Frank
Our 3rd grade class enjoyed a 6-week virtual class with Svend. He shared his knowledge and experience about jazz with us. We all learned a lot! I recommend Svend!
Carlos
Svend is one of the most genuine people I have met thus far. His passion for music and especially brass music is something rarely seen nowadays. I had the good fortune of meeting him at California State University Northridge when he conducted our brass ensemble there. His knowledge and experience being from Denmark gives him a very unique perspective about playing that few other musicians can compete with. Very highly recommended.
Megan
Svend is a very fun and engaging music teacher who always gives 110% to his students. He tailors his lessons to the needs of his individual students and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

With an emphasis on jazz and improvisation, my goal is to provide insight along your musical path. Here some of the topics we may explore:

Trumpet technique - We'll build custom exercises, some focusing on your strengths, others challenging the edge of your abilities. Rather than looking at practice as "warming up", we'll shift our mindset to "trumpet calisthenics" (inspired by Laurie Frink).

Jazz - We'll define jazz chords and learn how to play the notes in (and around!) them. We'll find melodies to flow from one chord to the next. We'll also discuss forms and listen to rich recordings of the jazz masters.

Free Playing - This is when we can let go of the analytic mind and simply make sound. We can direct our attention to non harmonic concepts like emotions, shapes, textures, and images. Sometimes I'll put a drone on during this segment or we'll play call and response ideas.

Tom is an amazing teacher, so gentle, patient and kind with our shy 12 year old. Tom was great in engaging him and we feel very good about their relationship already after the first lesson. He seems to know right away how to tailor the lesson based on where our son is at. He has already made improvements in his first class. We look forward to future lessons with Tom.

"Maureen has improved my son Nate's trumpet playing immensely. Where before he had some difficulty hitting the high notes, and his playing was somewhat tentative, he now plays with greater confidence and in tune. I noticed his improvement shortly after he started being taught by Maureen - not only as he was going through the scales, but in all the songs he practices now. Being an improved player has had the effect of Nate practicing more now as well. Maureen has taught him the importance of practice, the discipline it takes to improve, and has really developed his interest in the instrument. All this is testament to Maureen's quality as an instructor. I highly recommend her!"

"Andrew has shared his knowledge of not only trumpet playing, but also other techniques that I can use to improve my overall musicianship. He shares this knowledge openly and provides reassurance. He has taught me breathing techniques that allow me to use more air. He also taught me how to be more direct with my air. He is an amazing teacher and his low stress demeanor made it easy for me to learn from mistakes without getting overwhelmed."

"I do have to say this has been a great experience and to mention this is our first time trying private lessons ever! My son (11) started taking online lessons with Vinnie and it has been a great experience for my son. This week will be a month of online lessons with Vinnie and I am pleased we chose him. We have never done in-person lesson but at my son's level I feel the online lesson has been very convenient, especially during these abnormal times. Vinnie is a very thorough instructor and has provided the materials for every lesson each week and goes over every detail during the lesson. He takes the time to explain the 'why' behind correct form and technique. My son has expressed that he sees progression in his trumpet execution. During these weird times, I believe this was the best choice we could have made for my son. Vinnie has an incredible background and resume especially with his experience teaching music to younger students. I would highly recommend Vinnie as your trumpet instructor no matter your experience level. Thank you Vinnie for what you do."
