Caleb is a warm, kind, patient person who is an exceptionally talented musician and teacher!

My son started playing trumpet with Caleb in 5th grade. He is now a junior. He currently plays with the Whitney Young Jazz Band, as well as with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra-Jazz.

Falling in love with playing trumpet has been a life changing experience! He has a deep love of music and he has a wonderful group of friends in the band. He couldn't have done it without Caleb's help!

Frustrated by the physicality of the trumpet and looking to experience true freedom on the instrument?

I can help! I'm an internationally experienced professional musician with a lifelong history of teaching who's not afraid of 'problem cases'. I know my method works, because I tested it on myself first--and the proof of its efficacy is in my national and international touring career.

If you're hitting a wall in your technique or your embouchure, if you're looking to start out strong with no bad habits that will hang you up later, or if you're looking to expand your horizons beyond the conventional technique you know, call me.

In addition, you will be provided with a strong background in sight reading, technique, ear training, music theory, and improvisation while studying with me. I can't wait to help you with your goals, both long-term and short-term!

About Matthew

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music. Upon arriving

Trumpet:
A trumpet is a musical instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group contains the instruments with the highest register in the brass family. They are played by blowing air through almost-closed lips (called the player's embouchure), producing a "buzzing" sound that starts a standing wave vibration in the air column inside the instrument. I begin teaching from the beginning with the very basics of breathing, embouchure, fingerings, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, scales, theory and improvisation.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

Catherine
I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

"Tina has provided our daughter 11 year old daughter with outstanding lessons as a beginning trumpet player this past summer! Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!"

"INSPIRATION!!! I have been now, taking lessons from Jordan for 6 months. Each time I leave my finish with him, I am disappointed that I have run out of time. I've extended my lesson time, and it never is enough. As I depart, I am excited and inspired to continue on to do better than the last time. Three days after my lesson, I find myself counting the days to my next lesson.

Jordan has my highest recommendation for leadership, and education. A fine instructor, and an enjoyable inspiration. He will not disappoint."
