amazing experience! very accommodating and patient (my son had his trumpet sent to be fixed for long time and Caleb did not get upset)
we are looking forward for the next lessons!
Kathy
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!

Caleb is a fantastic and very patient teacher.

Ellie
He was my band teacher when I was in grade school. I’m now going into my freshman year of college and I still remember him! He was so engaging, kind, energetic, and really cared about each individual student. I always looked forward to band in the morning and during the school day. He was definitely meant to be an instructor! :)

Fantastic. Also taught my autistic older child electric guitar; really good.

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.
Pete
I feel fortunate to have Bill as my teacher. Bill is an outstanding player and teacher. I have been able to progress far faster with lessons with Bill than I could on my own.
Chandler
When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing.

Online Trumpet Teacher

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to the advanced level. This is pretty much standard practice within the brass family :)

"I've been taking lessons with Dave since I moved to America last August. I was nervous about switching teachers as I had had the same one for a while in Australia, but Dave has been amazing. He's helped me get my chops together, and helped me fix bad habits, too. He's also a great person and really easy to get along with which makes the learning process much more efficient. I recommend him highly!"

Her initial lesson included a thorough evaluation so she knew just where my daughter was starting from, and progressed to an actual lesson. It was clear to me that my daughter learns easily from Holly's teaching style and I could hear her progress throughout the hour. Additionally, Holly has an upbeat, positive attitude that only added to my daughter's enjoyment. She's counting down the days until her next lesson."
