Eric M.

Villa Park, IL

I love to play the trumpet. I play it in shows almost every day and love the way that Jazz sounds coming through a horn!

About Eric

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is v
ery productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to rock out to your favorite tunes, I have resources and experience to help you reach your goal. After three months you can expect to competently play a couple great songs and have greater fluidity and technique on your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a recording studio which includes music stands, keyboards, piano, amps, acoustic guitar, and seating available. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need the instrument of their study and their purchased study materials. If the student is taking piano, they will need an 88 key weighted keyboard or a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, but can teach classical, pop, rock, funk, blues, salsa, bossa nova etc.

Eric was just the person we were looking for to help my 13 yr old son to get started again with lessons. He connected with my son. They also connected because my son is an athlete and Eric can relate because of his background.

Caleb M.

Chicago, IL

I've been playing trumpet for 18 years, and I'm anxious to pass along my love for the instrument to others of all ages! I teach a variety of styles with my experience performing many kinds of music from classical to hip-hop. Whatever your interests I can get you playing with a healthy approach to brass playing and solid fundamentals!

About Caleb

Caleb moved from his hometown of Wichita, Kansas, to Chicago in 2008 to attend DePaul University, where he received his Bachelor’s in Trumpet Performance studying under Matt Lee and Tage Larsen. Since then, Caleb has picked up a variety of regular gigs across a wide spectrum of styles, genres, and types of events.

Caleb performs in Chicago with soul-pop band The Right Now, the progressive Pocket Radio, the soulful Bassel and the Supernaturals, the genre-defying Willy Dynomite, the Latin-grooved Contrabanda, and funk outfit Nasty Snacks. He has played in horn sections for Latin, funk, and bi
g-band jazz bands, as well as Afrobeat, indie rock, R&B/soul, and hip-hop/rap groups.

He has also played principal trumpet in symphony orchestras, pit orchestras and in the DePaul Screamin’ Demons Pep Band at Madison Square Garden. Caleb also regularly lends his solo talents to wedding parties and church services, and is one-fourth of the Chicago for-hire horn section Revolution Horns. Other musical endeavors include playing at Chicago Blackhawks games, a performance on the Steve Harvey Show, playing trumpet for the Broadway musical I Love Lucy in downtown Chicago, and a coveted chance to perform in master classes for his idols Adolph “Bud” Herseth and Chris Martin.

Caleb has been teaching privately in the Chicago area for a little over three years and is eager to teach students with any amount of experience, especially those who are eager to approach music from a variety of perspectives.

Caleb taught our 11 year old son for over a year. He connected well with him and was fun and encouraging yet firm and effective as a teacher. We would recommend Caleb to teach your aspiring trumpet player--you will be pleased with the results!

Caleb is an amazing trumpet specialist and a wonderful wonderful trumpet teacher. My son who is now 12 started taking private lessons with Caleb in Dec 2014 as a complete beginner. He has progressed so much in a little over a year that he is the best trumpetor in his middle school. And he may be performing in a jazz band with high schoolers this fall. This is greatly because of Caleb. He is incredible with children and teens. He is patient, fun, and firm. We are so glad we found him.

Justin C.

Chicago, IL

I can teach the fundamental concepts of efficiently playing the trumpet to all levels. This is my primary instrument, and I feel that I have a decent amount of experience to share with you! We can focus on some basic concepts of technique as well as jazz and classical literature.

About Justin

My name is Justin, and I am a musician (big surprise). I have been playing the piano for the past 18 years and the trumpet for the past 14 years. My primary emphasis is jazz improvisation, but I have a solid foundation in classical repertoire as well as the basic fundamental techniques of the trumpet and the piano. I am originally from Fresno, California, but I currently reside in the Chicago area. I completed my B.A. in Trumpet Performance at California State University, Fresno in 2011, and I most recently completed my M.M. in Jazz Studies at Northwestern University in June of 2013. As of rec
ently, I will be beginning to pursue a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Jazz Studies from the University of Illinois at Champaigne-Urbana in the Fall of 2015.

I have been performing extensively as a professional musician for the past 10+ years, and I have been teaching privately for the past 5+ years. The variety of musical genres that I perform is quite expansive, so I believe that I can accommodate the differing musical desires of all of my students. My mission is to help you discover who you are as a musician, which, in my opinion, has a strong connection with our personalities and how we interact with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When we begin our lessons, we will focus on our progress one day a day at a time. All that I know is that I want to help you! I want to discover the things that you would like to do better on your instrument, and push you in a direction of progression so you can more effortlessly express your personality through your music. We will not strive to "make you better" on your instrument, but rather strive to simply make it easier to play. I believe that is a vital distinction to make, and it will make approaching your instrument much less arduous. We will work hard and push our limits every day, but we will relax through the process. My primary goal is to learn as much from you as I hope you will learn from me!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a music stand and any necessary music technology. Students should only need provide something to take notes with and their instrument, as well as a positive attitude. I will make sure to bring the latter as well. :)

*** Specialties ***
Jazz improvisation and conceptualizations, classical trumpet literature, trumpet fundamentals, piano fundamentals

Mr C. is a very knowledgeable and talented trumpet player. I have zero experience with the trumpet and music for that matter, but he makes learning easy and enjoyable. He gives good tips and practice methods. Very down to earth and doesn't set strict expectations and takes it day by day. Would recommend to anyone.

Dan M.

Glen Ellyn, IL

Every level welcome. I have found the most success with using "Standards of Excellence" for beginners. As students progress, more materials will be needed. "Arban's: Complete Method for Trumpet" is standard for advancing students in my curriculum.

Born in the Chicago suburbs, Mr. M. graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Music in euphonium performance, and traveled to Colorado where he earned a Master of Music in trombone performance at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Dan has taught for about 10 years and speaks with efficient feedback. His experiences playing in ensembles has made him an extremely strong musician. I would recommend him for any advanced brass lesson tutoring. He can relate to people of any age so younger students would benefit from his energetic nature as well.

Kyle M.

Chicago, IL

I help my students improve their basic fundamentals, from playing posture to music reading. I teach a variety of styles of techniques using supplemental materials such as Getchell and Arban's books, as well as my own exercises. I believe that teachers should be strict about getting in the necessary practice time, but I'm also not afraid to crack a goofy joke every once in a while.

About Kyle

Growing up in a family of musicians, Kyle has been playing trumpet since before he was big enough to hold it on his own. Since he started teaching trumpet in 2011, he has taught kids of all ages and skill levels.

In 2014, Kyle received a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in Jazz Studies from Columbia College Chicago. There, he performed with the Columbia College Jazz Ensemble, as well as a number of other ensembles covering many genres including jazz, pop, hip-hop and R&B. He also had the honor of performing in concert with Christian McBride, Paula Cole, jazz legend Benny Gols
on and many more.

Currently, Kyle teaches trumpet (and beginning guitar) throughout Chicago and the southwest suburbs, and performs with groups of varying styles around town. He believes trumpet is a cool instrument for many reasons, and he is eager to help aspiring players of all ages learn how to play it well.

Kyle is a great instructor that notices my bad habits and fixes them. He is good at using excercises and warmups to build technique, and selecting pieces of music to apply those techniques. He also gives advice on how to practice and cares about whether or not I am improving.

My daughter is very easily distracted during her music lessons and Kyle somehow manages to keep her focused and on target. She is also a perfectionist and gets very upset when she doesn't do everything right the first time through. Kyle is very patient with her and encourages her to persevere. I don't think my daughter would have continued playing trumpet without the encouragement and enthusiasm Kyle has provided.
