Hello and welcome to my studio!

In my studio, all trumpet players feel welcomed and I will do my best to keep you/your child happy and having fun while taking lessons :)

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure for playing, and making a nice sound will come next. I have several method books depending on your trumpet experience, but if you already have a book we can use yours. We will also work on the more detailed aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range (yay high notes!), while learning new songs!

If you are already a more advanced student, we will work on music that pushes you to a higher level (Clarke, Arbans, Bordogni, etc.). I will also give you more detailed and advanced concepts to remove excess tension, play more musically instead of robotically, and overall make playing feel much easier.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! ...

My approach in teaching is firmly grounded in developing a healthy and self-driven practice culture in my students. As a practicing teacher, I strive tirelessly to lead by example. I ensure my students feel empowered after each lesson and hold them accountable to commit to their own daily grinds. For working with a new student, my typical process is to begin with the end in mind. According to the particular needs and expectations of the student, we discuss attainable and measurable goals for a given period of time. Especially during times of difficulty, I encourage my students to follow their curiosity and guard their motivation as we share the journey of music making together.

About Tommy

As a strong believer in the life-changing power of music, my teaching is driven by my purpose to serve and empower students of all backgrounds to realize their full potential and to leave a positive impact on the lives of others. Currently a doctoral candidate in brass performance at Boston Universi

During my time with Tommy, he has helped me improve in many areas. I feel that I learn and improve every lesson. Tommy is committed to teaching and points things out where I can improve upon. While teaching, Tommy uses many analogies that help me better understand what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it.

"Jesse is the perfect instructor for my family. We have been with Jesse for 9 months and my 11 year old son still looks forward to his lessons and practicing. We started at beginner trumpet, then added voice lessons and will soon start the family guitar lessons. Jesse's lessons are never boring. He always does something new and always asks what the student wants to play. Jesse is more than an instructor because he has taught my son to love music. He has exceeded my expectations."

He is punctual, caring, patient, encouraging, and most professional. I especially like the way he consistently corrects the "little" bad habits that may become a monumental problem later. I consider it an honor having my child being taught by Justin."
