*Brass teacher with 20 Years of performance and music education

Hello, and welcome to brass lessons!

My goal is to help you the learner feel empowered with resources, practice skills, and confidence enough to continue learning your instrument and reach the next level with or without help. I truly believe that anyone can learn to play an instrument!

Teaching, learning, and music are passions of mine! Whether you are a beginner who has never played an instrument before, or an experienced musician, I have experience with all levels and am thrilled to teach you.

Euphonium is my primary instrument, but I have experience teaching and performing on all of the brass instruments, and competed on a national level at the Leonard Falcone Festival two times!

I have taught instrumental music for 16 years in the public schools, and have taught privately for over 20 years. I have my bachelors in Music Education, and my masters in conducting.

About Anthony

Hi, I’m Teacher Tony, and I’m from Illinois, and I love teaching music! I started playing when I was 12, and music changed my life! I have taught music to people of all ages. I really enjoy teaching students who need a little encouragement and love helping them feel good about what they are doing.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. Teaches the whole person, not just the musician. Emphasizes in expressive playing and building confidence in students. Very methodical; will address an issue in various ways until he finds a way the student understands, and won't give up on a student. A life-long student himself, he's always learning new techniques to improve his practice. If you're looking to learn an instrument AND do something meaningful with that knowledge, I couldn't recommend him more.

Private Trumpet Teacher

Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

An instrumentalist since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning trumpet lessons.

About Thomas

Piano, woodwinds, trumpet, composition Chords, sight-reading, theory, jazz, classical, and pop No one ever regrets learning an instrument… yet many grow old wishing they had taken music lessons! A talent they’ll be able to develop their entire life, your children will thank you for giving them

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

I first picked up the trumpet in the 4th grade. I’ve spent a lifetime learning the instrument, making a living playing it, teaching others to play it. Now I’d like to help you.

Hi I'm Rick and in your lesson you will learn:

The fundamentals of good trumpet playing. You will learn not just what to practice, but how to practice. I will help you with breathing and how to use your air effectively. You will learn how to develop a great sound - your sound. I will help you improve your range, flexibility, and endurance. You will develop new skills, build on your existing ones, learn new songs, and have more fun playing trumpet.

When we first meet, I will want to hear you play - just to see where your playing is at - and we’ll talk - do you have specific goals?, what do you want to learn? This will give us a good starting point.

I welcome students of all ages and abilities, from absolute beginner to aspiring professional. Schedule your lesson now. I offer a wide variety of booking ...

Rick is an outstanding trumpet player and teacher. Highly recommended...
John
I met Rick over 25 years ago when I moved to Honolulu while touring with Paul Anka. Rick and I became fast friends and played many jobs together ranging from classical to big band to Broadway to backing up the Temptations and Johnny Mathis. His wide range of experience across all styles of trumpet playing would be a huge asset to any student. His easygoing demeanor is a plus for being a great teacher.
Brien
After touring with Tom Jones for ten years, I moved to Hawaii, where I met Rick. Many times for many years, we would practice together. During those sessions, we would critique and discuss each others' playing. Rick was always very good at assessing what I was doing, and was consistently able to put into words what I needed to hear. We were in essence, giving each other lessons, and I gained a lot from Rick's expertise.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Since my graduation from the University of South Carolina, I have enjoyed a varied career in performing many genres of music around the world and in the United States. I have performed pop music while sailing around the Mediterranean Sea, toured with a Broadway show in the United States, and, recently, playing jazz in New York City. My journey has also led me to learn about the physical practice of the trumpet, which has given a totally new approach on how to instruct students in a highly personal way.

I am confident that I can contribute as your trumpet instructor because of my varied career and the skills I am able to teach. Specifically:

• The traditional approach to trumpet playing, which builds a strong musician who can play with others
• The physical practice of trumpet, which takes into account the movements that need to be engrained in order to play efficiently.
• Jazz improvisation
• Commercial music style (rock, Broadway, salsa, pop, etc.)
• Music theory

Hunter is an amazing teacher. My 8-year-old looks forward to her lesson every week. Hunter is patient and very kind and finds a way to help my daughter progress even when she has trouble paying attention. He never puts any pressure on her or expects more than she can do. I recommend Hunter without reservation to anyone looking for an excellent teacher who is confident, encouraging, and engaging. He goes beyond the extra mile to help my daughter excel and I know he'll do the same for you.
Jessica
Hunter is a wonderful teacher. I began trumpet lessons with some basic knowledge of reading music but I had never picked up a trumpet before. Hunter's 8 lesson beginner lesson plan is so great for a beginner. It comes with music, fingerings, and follow/play along youtube videos that help me practice outside our lesson together. Hunter is a nurturing teacher that works with your skill level and will cater these lessons directly to your needs. From lesson one I was playing music! I would highly recommend this teacher.
Maite
Hunter taught me beginner trumpet and he's no doubt one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very rigorous without being intimidating and puts great emphasis on encouragement so that you feel motivated to practice and get better for the next lesson. You can tell he's a very disciplined musician himself and the atmosphere of the lesson is always relaxed. You know you can ask him any question you may have as many times as necessary. Without ever neglecting technique, he had me trying tunes from the very begining so that I could see how technical exercises immediately transfer to making enjoyable music. He has many different tools to tackle a specific blockage you may have in the learning process.

"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."

"Bit of a first month update. Jeremy is better than expected (and this was a good expectation based on my son's first lesson). I played piano and yet I find none of that knowledge seems to lend itself to trumpet, plus I have no ear for the trumpet. David (my son) can hear himself with a bad buzz but it all sounds the same to me. But back to Jeremy, even though David has been playing Trumpet for a little over a year I had no idea how many basics he was never taught! And Jeremy picked right up on where his knowledge is lacking and they are already rocking through basics I thought David would have learned in Band or at least in Brass/Percussion class. So just really thrilled (both my and my son) that Jeremy quickly saw where David's knowledge was lacking and is already improving his confidence and ability in such a short time."
