It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

It was very detailed instruction. He provided accurate advice and easy-to-understand examples. His breathing technique, musicality and technique for expression were very helpful. And, needless to say, he had a wonderful personality.

My first instruction from David O. couldn't have gone better. He quickly summed up my abilities (or lack thereof) and put me on a course for improvement. Dave's style of teaching was fun and unintimidating. In addition, Dave is extremely patient and sincere. I'm looking forward to the next lessons.

Online Trumpet Teacher

My passion is creating music and inspiring others to create music. I learned to read music at the age of 6 and shortly after started playing the trumpet. The opportunity to learn the language of music is such a great gift with many benefits beyond creativity. My passion is to give this opportunity to other young aspiring musicians. My goal is to guide each student according to their individual needs to reach their goals.

"My 9year old is loving her lessons with Caleb. He is super patient with her many questions. I personally appreciate his willingness to let me watch/participate and his openness to new ways to approach helping her learn. He handled the differences in what she hears from her band teacher extremely well- being respectful of what the band leader said while explaining why we should really do something different."

"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."
