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!

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

Had my first lesson with Jerry and though we had some technology issues I truly enjoyed his teaching and thoroughness of instruction. I wanted a professional trumpet player and experienced teacher and Jerry is really meeting my expectations. I’m truly looking forward to working with him each week. Also, his follow up after the lesson was outstanding.

Online Trumpet Teacher

My two basic goals at the core of my teaching philosophy:
To help the students develop the skills on the trumpet, through technical and physical development, with the long-range goal of developing a student’s ability to successfully pursue a career of teaching and/or performing if that is their choice.
To help bring his or her soul into each performance on the trumpet, and to help the student learn to tell a story, paint a picture, and create a mood – the language of the music.

About Dr. Arthur

Arthur as a professional trumpet player is a skilled musician in classical, commercial, and jazz idioms and has been one of L.A.’s and New York's first call trumpeters for commercial recordings, television and motion pictures, and live theater. He has contributed to albums for many popular artists,

Because the lessons are in our home, it’s been a very relaxed, enjoyable experience for our son and that was important to us. His former teacher was great, but Dr. Pugh has pushed him to an entirely different place musically. Dr. Pugh’s professionalism and enthusiasm for music are inspiring and he has brought our son’s trumpet playing to another level.

Online Trumpet Teacher

I want you to learn to express yourself through the trumpet, to help you master it and have lots of fun in the process! Trumpet was my second musical instrument (my first was my voice!), which I played through most of grade school and into high school. I can help you with good breath support and creating clear, steady tone.

Rob is very professional. He teaches me how to sing with songs I enjoy. He uses scales to warm up and is very detail orientated. He’s amazing. I’ve taken lessons with him for about 8 months and my voice has improved tremendously! Thanks rob.

"My 9year old is loving her lessons with Caleb. He is super patient with her many questions. I personally appreciate his willingness to let me watch/participate and his openness to new ways to approach helping her learn. He handled the differences in what she hears from her band teacher extremely well- being respectful of what the band leader said while explaining why we should really do something different."

"When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing."

"I knew Andrew when he was a brass tech for the Temple University Marching Band where he lead a group of over 200 members while also teaching and leading a group of 30 or more trumpets. He knows his stuff and makes it easy to understand. He focuses in on the student. I learned a lot about technique and air control from him which helped me improve as a musician. Good teacher. Would recommend to anyone."

"Last year our 10-year old daughter started playing the trumpet in Beginning Band. Over half-way through the year she missed a lot of school due to illness, got behind and was forced to drop-out of band. Over the summer we started online trumpet lessons with Mercedes to help our daughter catch up with her peers. We feel so fortunate to have found Mercedes! She is an EXCELLENT teacher. She is enthusiastic about music/playing trumpet, creative in all the ways she helps our daughter improve, positive and patient (SO important when teaching beginners) and she truly is amazing at keeping our daughter engaged during every lesson. During each 30 minute lesson, our daughter makes noticeable progress! Plus Mercedes keeps the lessons fun so our daughter happily participates. Thanks to the progress she has made with Mercedes, she is feeling confident enough to return to Second Year Band later this month. We plan to keep up the lessons with Mercedes and look forward to her ongoing support and guidance during our daughter's important beginning-to-intermediate instrument learning stage."

"Caleb has been my son’s trumpet instructor for almost 6 months now. He has a keen ability to get across everything needed for a highly effective online lesson. I cannot tell you what a HUGE convenience it's been for us to have these expert lessons in the comfort and convenience of our home. I would have to drive 45 minutes over a mountain pass to get to the nearest qualified instructor. In the middle of snowstorms, and even with my son in p.j.'s, we can have our lesson right here at home. In an ordinary lesson environment a parent usually is expected to leave the room. With Caleb, I can be nearby while my son receives his lesson. This is helpful for me to reinforce points that Caleb made during his lesson with my son when he is practicing during the week. Currently he's working with my son on his honor jazz band audition, as well as a classical oratorio piece that he'll be playing on tour in Europe with our local community orchestra. Caleb is qualified to teach any style of music. He’s super friendly but never loses his honesty with the student. We often have special requests for each lesson and Caleb is able to tailor each lesson to work on the new pieces and still fit in valuable instruction with scales and solid technique. Not only is Caleb a great teacher, but he is on many professional recordings, and is a regularly-working professional musician in Chicago. My son is very lucky to have him as an instructor. We're very impressed with Caleb and know you will be too!"

"I feel like I learned a lot in an hour and he really helped me find an anchor point that I can go back to if I am stuck on a note. I realized that he went over every proven method that I learned throughout my experiences from elementary school to highschool and then added on to them by explaining how these methods help. He even showed me methods usually taught to college musicians.

The reason I always believed in private lessons is because no matter how few or how many you take, the learning process gets expedited immensely.

I definitely would recommend this teacher for learning a brass instrument."
