I have spent over 12 years studying trumpet. During this time I have focused on jazz and it's impact on pop, rock, and R&B music. Coupled with my expertise as a lead singer, I can take your performance skills and stage presence to the next level. I also work great with kids, creating a fun learning environment to get them excited about different styles of music.

After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

Private Trumpet Teacher

Hello and welcome to my online music studio!

I have been teaching elementary and intermediate brass professionally for over 6 years. I use a differentiated instruction method in my lessons which centers around tailoring instruction to meet individual student needs, interests, and goals. Instruction varies based on the type of learner, the age of the student, and whether or not they have prior experience.

In private lessons, I teach students about basic theory, ear-training, sight-reading, scales, proper breathing, embouchure development, and much more. I will help students prepare for school-related events such as District Band auditions, Solo and Ensemble Festival, and coach them as they advance through middle and high school band and/or orchestra.

A little about me: I began private French horn lessons at age 11 and continued lessons until age 17. I currently teach online and in-person music lessons in the DC/Northern Virginia area. I have played horn in ensembles such as the ...

"I have known Vinnie for 35 years in the world of music. He is a colleague that I hold in the highest regard. I have had the great pleasure of performing alongside him in a number of different situations. As a sideman we have performed music on an extremely high level, everything from Jazz Standards, originals, to Weather Report etc. Vinnie's abilities as trumpeter and educator are tremendous, world class all across the board. He is great reader and his improvisation is of the highest order, creative, inventive, with thematic development and harmonic depth in the single line."

A few weeks ago I learned about Justin's online classes and signed up. Any doubts that I had about online instruction ended after the first lesson. My son is improving greatly. This is his review, "He's an excellent teacher because he has good teaching skills!" Justin uses helpful materials, he has a clear methodology, he's thorough, and as a current performer he's inspiring. We plan to continue with Justin weekly in the school year."
