In the past 4 years, I have tutored dozens of students and worked with different trumpet players in my area. As a music major at the University of Illinois, I seek a way to continue my passion for teaching and seeing students develop into wonderful players. Trained in general music, theory, and skills in teaching, I can truly connect with your student and ensure that they gain knowledge and learn to love playing their horn!

The most valuable way a student can learn is if he or she has a positive connection with the teacher. In my case, I ensure that I understand not only the student's strengths and places for improvement, but also the uniqueness of his or her character and what teaching methods the student responds to. Every child is unique in how they learn, and all deserve a positive experience without intimidation and impatience from teachers. Teaching music also goes hand in hand with teaching your student dedication, work ethic, and strong character!

My son had never played a musical instrument before his lessons with Mercedes. She has been super patient and encouraging with him as he isn't the most motivated of students. Joseph now has a solid base of the fundamentals and has begun to enjoy to play his trumpet as his skill set has grown.

She's very nice and shows you fun ways to learn .

I am a musician and music educator specializing in brass and bass guitar. I hold a Bachelor of Music from Stephen F. Austin State University as well as a Music EC-12 Teacher Certification. I can teach trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, and jazz bass guitar.

I thoroughly enjoy listen and watch my students grow as individuals and musicians. Learning a musical instrument teaches a person many things that will have them be successful such as hard work, patience, and delayed gratification. Having my students learn these skills is essential in today's world.

Daniel was a very hard working student at Melrose-Mindoro Schools. He was my student in choir and performed solos and ensembles for solo/ensemble festivals. He also was in state honors choirs and one national choir in 2011 under Rollo Dilworth.
Theresa
I am a retired voice and piano teacher with 45 years of experience including teaching on the High School and university levels as well as performing in concerts and Opera and (still) serving as a Church Musician. Daniel Schlegel was one of my most advanced high school students in applied Voice. He was a talented, hard-working all-round musician and always a gentleman. I helped to prepare him for several auditions and concerts in which he excelled. Some of my most memorable occasions of performing with Mr. Schlegel were accompanying him in vocal competitions and especially at venues in Ireland, where he was warmly received by the Irish listeners. I believe that with his additional training, work ethic and experience teaching young people he would be a fine choice as a voice teacher.
Robert D Edwards
I have had the opportunity to observe Daniel teach Middle School students. He his an outstanding teacher. He pays attention to detail and gets the most out of them. There is never any wasted time and he has a heart fro young people and their music. I highly recommend him as a teacher for your child!

"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."
