Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.
Sarah
I can not say enough good things about Gary. Currently three of our children are taking online lessons with him. I will admit that I was very nervous about online lessons but Gary has been amazing. He has a way of communicating with our children, who range in age from 10-16, that gets his point across and inspires them. If you are looking for a brass teacher Gary is the one you want!
Levi
Gary is an Excellent instructor with patience and passion for teaching.

I feel fortunate to have Bill as my teacher. Bill is an outstanding player and teacher. I have been able to progress far faster with lessons with Bill than I could on my own.
Chandler
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.
Rolando
Bill is a great pedagogue and a fabulous trumpet player! Thank you for the great information!

Whether you want to learn how to build endurance, craft a beautiful tone, improvise or interpret classical works, you've come to the right place.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

Jonathan has made a great impression with my son. He displays a great combination of patience and encouragement with Nick. I have seen an improvement in his trumpet skills as well as his confidence.

Online Trumpet Teacher

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

About Pablo

With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment w

Online Trumpet Teacher

Hello and welcome to my studio!

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure, and making a nice sound will come next. And later we will work on the more intricate aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range, while learning new songs!

If you are already familiar with the basics of playing trumpet, we will work on the specific areas you want to work on.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

About Andrew

Hello and welcome to my studio! I started trumpet as a young elementary schooler and began teaching private lessons in 2015. I had very poor technique up through highschool but landed a jazz performance major in college. I hurt myself playing and started to tear muscle in my lip. I decided I

I've been playing trumpet on and off for years and just had my first lesson, and can see that Andrew knows what he is doing. He is very organized, a great communicator, and listener. His guidance seems very methodical and structured which is what I need to work toward my goals.

Can’t speak highly enough about Andrew. His lessons are very engaging, he does a great job diagnosing issues, and he’s an all around fun and talented music teacher.

"Mr. Gallo is a wonderful instructor. I started taking lessons with him in 7th grade, and even now that I'm in college I try to take lessons with him whenever the opportunity presents itself. He caters each lesson specifically to what the individual student needs and would benefit from, rather than attempting to force one instructional path on his students. He is very flexible and willing to work around each student's schedule to figure out when lessons would best fit into the week. He is patient and very friendly; definitely someone easy to work with. You won't get better lessons for a better price."

"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."
