I believe that a beautiful sound is the most important thing. Rather than telling you how to get a great sound, I will demonstrate by playing everything back and forth with you. Learning a musical skill is accomplished through trial and error, thus we need to make mistakes in order to improve. I encourage my students not to be afraid of making mistakes. Perfection is not the target - a beautiful sound is the ultimate goal.

About Larry

Hi! My name is Larry, and I really enjoy playing and teaching trumpet. The trumpet has literally taken me around the world playing for over ten years on various cruise lines, visiting beautiful places in Europe, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, and North/South America. Since leaving the cruise industry,

I have been taking lessons with Larry for about two years and I have improved immensely. Larry is very supportive and gives great feedback, he makes the lessons fun and educational. He will let you figure things out on your own but also give helpful instructions to lead you on your way to success. Larry is the reason I went from not being able to play the trumpet to two years later playing a level 4 trumpet NYSSMA solo and getting a 25 out of 28. Taking lessons from Larry was the best thing I could have done to get better at playing the trumpet.
Ginny
Our daughter loves taking lessons from Larry. He has helped her improve her trumpet skills. She is a beginner, and he is very patient and knowledgeable about what she needs to develop into a great musician. Larry is always available and prompt with his lesson times but is also flexible with his schedule for us when needed.
Sarah
I like lessons with Larry. He is patient, and always finds something positive. Trumpet is easier now, and a lot more fun!

I played at Carnegie Hall in New York City. I also played at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia. I am also playing at the Musikverein in Vienna, Austria. I am only 19 years old, playing in places that older musicians are struggling to play at. Do you want to achieve greatness like me? Well, take a lesson or two with me! What is so unique about me is that if you take one lesson with me, I guarantee that you will sound much better and gain a lot of progress in that one lesson! Every lesson with me will almost certainly get you to where your dreams may be. Even if you only take one lesson, I can ensure that you are better off than where you were before the lesson. Join me, and let me take you to where you need to be!

I have a wealth of experience as a trumpeter and music teacher, and hold three degrees in music: DMA from Univ. of Georgia, MM from UT-Austin, and BM from N. Dakota State Univ. I am trained mostly in and play primarily "classical" trumpet, but have experience performing and teaching jazz and pop/commercial styles. Working with kids and adults on music is enjoyable and fulfilling, and I strive to help students as much as possible.

Chris will demonstrate with his trumpet how a piece should be played. He advises on breathing and other techniques. He’s encouraging and uses constructive criticism. I look forward each week to my lessons with Chris.
Michael
Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!
Rhys B.
My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found him!

"Justin is an outstanding teacher. My 10 year old son had been been taking in-person lessons for a year and a half with another teacher. 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."
