I started playing trumpet at the age of 6. I have toured with the USAO Showband and sat in with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. Most important to me is the accomplishments of my students. Multiple selections for honor bands and most recently one of my students was selected for a summer tour of the southeast US.

About Jeremy
I have been a professional performing musician and producer for over 10 years and have had hundreds of students during that time. I grew up playing classic rock and classical. By the time I graduated high school I had visited 26 states playing music. I have studied music at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma and have performed in various groups. I have a unique passion for teaching music and making it fun. I have the classical training and performance experience to help take your musicianship to the next level while having a blast.

As a professional brass musician, I have been teaching brass instruments for over twelve years.

For the beginner level, I have introduced many students to their first instrument ensuring that fundamentals are in place. At the intermediate level, I have helped many students advance in competitions and seat assignments within their band program. As a collegiate educator, I have given masterclasses at universities and private lessons to music performance students preparing for auditions and solo recitals.

I have taught online lessons for over four years and have used multiple online communication platforms to teach effective lessons. My students truly enjoy the online interaction during their lessons.

I have taught a wide variety of ages - everyone from 10 years old to 76 years old. One of the great joys I have in teaching is that each student brings their own unique strengths to lessons. My goal is to raise their level of playing while always having fun.

About Jeremy
Jeremy S. has been teaching private brass lessons for over 13 years and is currently available to teach weekly lessons at his home in Centerburg, OH or online via the TakeLessons Classroom, Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, VSee, or AppearIn. Jeremy S. has helped students improve their playing abilities on trombone, trumpet, tuba, and baritone/euphonium, to successfully audition for youth orchestras, competitions, college auditions, and local events. He provides traditional classical training on trombone, trumpet, tuba, and baritone/euphonium, works with students to play for their own enjoyment and shares his passion for music. In addition, I will provide instruction on music theory and music history as part of instrumental lessons as it applies.

Jeremy received his training at Grace College in 2010, where he received a Bachelors of Mu
sic in Instrumental Performance. In addition, he attended the Carnegie Mellon University in 2012 where he received a Masters in Music. He has studied with Peter Sullivan, Jim Kraft, John Kitzman, and Graeme Mutchler.

As an expert in his field, Jeremy looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Jeremy's teaching style is positive, supportive, patient and constructive, focused on the individual student's needs, and enjoyable. Jeremy will work at your pace and cares about each of his students. Jeremy will teach you the proper positions and fingerings, technique, how to read music and how to improve your playing.

I am currently accepting new students. I recommend weekly lessons for all students to ensure good progress, but I do offer bi-weekly lessons as well. I can provide information on purchasing or renting an instrument if needed. You can check my availability on my schedule and sign up for lessons with TakeLessons.com. Please e-mail me with any questions or about available times for lessons. I will respond quickly. Thank you for your interest and consideration.

My 11-year-old son has now had 3 lessons with Jeremy, and we are both extremely happy with his progress. My eldest had saxophone lessons through takelessons.com, but he already had some experience. I'm pleasantly surprised that with no prior trumpet experience, and without anyone else in our family playing trumpet, my son is doing really well. Jeremy is patient, kind, and encouraging. He does an excellent job explaining what he is looking for and takes a systematic approach in structuring the lessons.

I've been teaching trumpet for 20 years and my students have gone on to the State level Band Auditions and won multiple times. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a decent sound, play scales, arpeggios and simple tunes, and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular tunes solo and with accompaniment of piano or band. I specialize in classical, jazz and klezmer style, typically use best published books, and have the renovated, quiet and spacious studio, music stands, audio equipment. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

· Clarinet · In studio
Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.

My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

In the past 4 years, I have tutored dozens of students and worked with different trumpet players in my area. As a music major at the University of Illinois, I seek a way to continue my passion for teaching and seeing students develop into wonderful players. Trained in general music, theory, and skills in teaching, I can truly connect with your student and ensure that they gain knowledge and learn to love playing their horn!

The most valuable way a student can learn is if he or she has a positive connection with the teacher. In my case, I ensure that I understand not only the student's strengths and places for improvement, but also the uniqueness of his or her character and what teaching methods the student responds to. Every child is unique in how they learn, and all deserve a positive experience without intimidation and impatience from teachers. Teaching music also goes hand in hand with teaching your student dedication, work ethic, and strong character!

About Mercedes
I am a current Music Education major at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, pursuing a minor in Psychology. Before that, I attended West Aurora High School as the first chair trumpet player in the concert and jazz setting for 2 years, and was a trumpet section leader and drum major of the marching band there.
I earned the John Phillip Sousa Band Award and the Semper Fidelis Marine Corps Musical Excellence Award for leadership, musical talent, and dedication in music. I was privately taught for many years under Dr. Rod C. Schueller, a leader in trumpet and music education who formerly taught at Michigan State, Texas State, and Northern Illinois University. I currently study under prestigious trumpet professors Ronald Romm and Charles Duval. I graduated in the top 1% of my high school class. As well, I attended and was an intern a
t the prestigious Smith Walbridge Drum Major Clinics, where I earned my 1st class rank nationally as a leader in teaching music.

I have been tutoring trumpet for 4 years, and have been playing for 10. I have taught between the ages of 10 and 17, and have experience on the beginning level up to classical and jazz music at the advanced level. Teaching is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had, and doing what I love for the rest of my life is a blessing in itself!

With my students, I work on creating a positive and comfortable playing environment so that the student feels safe making mistakes and asking questions. The only way to grow as a player is find the confidence to fail. As brass players, we need diligence, patience, and strong work ethic to improve, and a safe place to gain these skills is essential to every student. I want to get to know exactly how the student plays and what their goals are so I can work with them on achieving them and a little bit beyond them as well. Learning how to play an instrument or get better at it goes far beyond simple instruction- it comes from a connection to the music and a joyful willingness to mess up sometimes! That's how we grow.

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.

I've taken lessens with Mercedes for two years. Every time I left a lessen I had a lot of good ideas and ways to strengthen my playing. I never felt like lessens with Mercedes were a teacher to student environment. It was very chill and more like friend helping friend. That to me is the best relationship to truly learn. Mercedes helped me learn a sense of confidence that is not only used in Trumpet but in life.
