Experienced Trumpet teacher of 5 years available for eager students of all experience levels! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical ability and excellent musicianship. I specialize in concert band and orchestral styles of music, however I can teach jazz styles as well. For beginning students I typically use Measures of Success Book #1. For intermediate students I recommend Standard of Excellence book #2 and book #3.

Vivian makes learning the clarinet fun and I look forward to every lesson. She has already taught me new notes and songs after just five lessons. She was also open to incorporating music from my favorite movies (Harry Potter) into my lesson plans. The music is more advanced for me and so I really appreciate Vivian’s patience and her demonstrations so I know exactly what to play for each song. I’m glad to have Vivian as my teacher.
Carolyn
My 12 year old son has been taking clarinet lessons with Vivian for almost two months. At his first lesson he could barely play one note. I've been so impressed with his improvement every week. My son says, "she's very helpful and understanding." We highly recommend!

Private Trumpet Teacher

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!

"My jazz instructor in High School led me to Bobby three years ago. He taught me a lot of things about playing the trumpet and greatly increased my ability as a trumpet player. He is very, and inspired me to want to get better at playing through encouragement and his high quality playing. Every lesson is very personal and fun. I know that sounds cheesy, but I looked forward to every lesson I had with Bobby. Bobby is a very skilled player, and unlike many great players, he can teach just as well as he can play. Bobby and I also spent a lot of time talking about Jazz theory. I am now fairly knowledgeable about theory, one of the best in my school, and I learned it all from Bobby. If you take lessons with Bobby your trumpet skills will vastly improve, and if you want to learn jazz, Bobby teaches jazz theory as well as he teaches trumpet, if not better. The last thing I have to say is something that Bobby told me at our very first lesson, "we will both learn from each other, you will learn trumpet and jazz skills, and I will learn how to effectively teach you." Every lesson with Bobby is extremely personal, and he is constantly improving his already great teaching skills."
