Private Trumpet Teacher

I am a musician with expierence playing French Horn with professional orchestras and chamber groups. I have spent 5 years teaching privately and held positions teaching in the public schools. Through my public school experience I have had the opportunity to give many trumpet lessons. In my lessons we not only focus on having good sound, technique, and musicianship but also having fun while playing the instrument! It is my goal to bring the students personality out through their music.

Mr. Phelps is an outstanding instructor! He worked with my large group, small group, and private lessons students. As a band director, I truly appreciated his professionalism and demeanor with all of my students of all ages and levels - very supportive and very encouraging. His lesson are high-energy and up-tempo, the kids loved it! Chris is an excellent choice for lessons. I highly recommend him!
John
Chris was a great teacher and help to our daughter. He was also very flexible with our schedule and often helped us move the time to fit perfectly...on Sunday no less! Within a short time both her band leader and us could hear the difference in her performance. Super nice nice guy too and that’s coming from a Gators fan (if you follow college football you will understand this). Best of luck up there Chris!

Private Trumpet Teacher

I am a current student at the University of North Texas, studying under Mike Steinel and working towards a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Studies - Trumpet Performance. I grew up in the Anne Arundel County public school system, so I know what it takes to grow and succeed in the music programs here. Lessons are less about learning etudes and concertos, and more about increasing your ability and unlocking your potential as a musician, That is what I have always sought to focus on with my own students. Becoming more proficient and skilled in your instrument makes the entire experience far more enjoyable!

I've been studying trumpet for 15 years, and I'm eager to work with students of all ages. I will give students a firm foundation in trumpet fundamentals, while also focusing on what the student would like to learn. I specialize in jazz and contemporary music, though I am also trained in classical music.

I feel like he really understands my struggles and how to help me. Plus, he offered to transpose some pieces that I want to play on trumpet.

He's a great instructor!

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.

"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!"

"I have been taking online trumpet lessons with Vinnie for years now. I have also studied in person with Vinnie, and played in Vinnie's band. I feel so lucky to be able to take lessons from one of the best trumpet players in the world. Vinnie has helped me progress in many areas including jazz improvisation. Vinnie has a warm personality and is very patient. In my 50 years of playing trumpet, Vinnie is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Vinnie plays so well, and performs in so many places all over the world, I can't even begin to describe his personal talent. However, on a personal level, he is easy to relate to and study with.

"Mr. Denton was a fantastic teacher! We worked on articulations and phrasing in the first movement of the Halsey Stevens Sonata and he was able to bring a lot more out of me musically than I thought I was capable of. He made excellent use of the 30 minute online lesson and I came away feeling more confidant as I approach my recital."
