Having taught music for 12 years, I've had a lot of experience working with students at various levels of experience and development both in person and online. My first goal in trumpet lessons is to develop a solid foundation in tone and sound production and ensuring an understanding of traditional notation. Once this foundation is set, I work with my students to develop skills that will empower them to choose their own paths and repertoire as musicians.

I have taught and directed General Music, Band, Choir, Modern Band, and Musical Theater classes since graduating from the instrumental program at the Capital University Conservatory of Music in 2008.

I will help you you build strong fundamentals and excellent habits. We will concentrate on your sound, tone, and pitch center. I will help you develop a daily routine that builds your skill set every time you play. I enjoy working with adult students and comeback players. I am more of a coach than a taskmaster. I am an active trumpeter and perform frequently with several ensembles.

Mr. Philip was one of the most patient instructors I have ever had. He really took the time to ensure I understood each technique. If you are looking for an instructor that is both engaging and motivating, he is the one you should get.

I enjoy nurturing musical creativity in my
students.

It is Rapturous for me when a student realizes
their own musicality by going past just
playing the notes on the page, to actively
expressing the Message (which could be a
Thought, Emotion, or a Scene) that is
inherent in the piece.

In a Brass instrument lesson, I have the student play:
-A quick and effective warm-up with me.
-A quick review of their assigned
technical exercises.
-Their assigned Etude or Chart or Solo.
-A Duet with Me.

Technical aspects of Performance:
1. A mastery of ability to Sight Sing.
2. Clean Articulation.
3. A wide (and well-sounding) Range.
4. Moving between partials is Flexible.
5. A beautiful Tone.

I wish for my students to become more than
just good instrumentalists, I want for them
to always have fun with music. When a
student realizes that music can ultimately be
Emotional and Creative Outlet for them,
they will be Musicians for life!

About Scott

I am a Bass Trombonist, but teach all brass instruments. I have been teaching for 20 years. I help my students build their Tone, Technique and Articulation by teaching a simple Warm-Up routine. I have written an 8-page eBook entitled "Optimal Brass Playing" that describes ten areas of best practi

Mr. Scott really is a nice person to meet. For my first voice lessons, He helped me identify what range I was comfortable with and introduced a few of his works that opened my perspective on reading music. He knows how to teach his material if you specify what exactly you want to accomplish.
Mike
Scott is someone who expertly emphasizes both the fundamentals of trombone playing and musicianship. I have had the opportunity to read his melodious etudes arrangements with him and his arrangements are expertly crafted to force the performers to work on listening, phrasing, intonation and sound quality all in one fell swoop. Scott's attitude is very warm and not condescending in the slightest. He is very positive while always encouraging the player to grow. If you are a low brass player who wants a deeper understanding on the intricacies of low brass performance and overall musicianship, you should absolutely give Scott a try.

I am a current student at the University of North Texas, studying under Mike Steinel and working towards a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Studies - Trumpet Performance. I grew up in the Anne Arundel County public school system, so I know what it takes to grow and succeed in the music programs here. Lessons are less about learning etudes and concertos, and more about increasing your ability and unlocking your potential as a musician, That is what I have always sought to focus on with my own students. Becoming more proficient and skilled in your instrument makes the entire experience far more enjoyable!

His resume is an impressive one, but his personality and teaching style are far more impressive because those are things you can't get from a resume. My ten year old just completed her second session with Caleb and has already shown improvement of which she is super excited about, and can't wait to improve more under Caleb's tutelage."

"Will is a really excellent teacher! I started with absolutely ZERO experience and he was kind, patient, and a really excellent start for any new student. We worked mainly on fundamentals, breathing exercises, and embouchure technique the first few weeks before jumping right into learning basic songs and music theory. He tailored the lessons to my ability and gave me pointers throughout to make sure I was staying consistent.

I would recommend Will to anyone that is interested in tackling the trumpet, from beginner (me) to advanced. Thanks Will!"

"Caleb tunes right into your experience level and has a ton to offer right from the beginning while being really easy to work with. We talked about goals and trumpet history and started structuring a new warmup routine. With Caleb's diverse performing experience, he can teach you about hip hop, funk, jazz, orchestral, and small ensemble brass work (plus probably some other stuff I don't know about yet)."

Zachary is a very encouraging teacher, and he communicates very well regarding scheduling. He has also kept lessons fresh and interesting for my fifth grader, sometimes bringing different instruments and teaching tools that keep my son engaged. Highly recommended!"

"I've had many teachers in the past who only taught me how to perform well with the emphasis on technicality and repeptition; however, Tom created space for me to appreciate each and every bar rather than focusing on finishing a song. As a student who has become well-adjusted to structure, I learned the beauty of improvisation informed by theory through Tom. He is attentive, passionate, and always makes sure I got the concept he's teaching. He has a rare gift of creating such an intimate, peaceful environment where I can feel at ease and really thrive in playing music. It was in these calm moments my passion for jazz sparked more and more. I'm truly thankful to have had Tom as my mentor/teacher.

"Caleb is the best trumpet instructor I have ever had! He is thorough, explains his methods and why he is teaching what he is teaching, helps his students develop good practices that will be extremely beneficial down the line, and is flexible with how to structure a lesson depending on what you want out of it. On top of all that, he is amiable, interesting, and professional. I feel very good taking trumpet lessons from a professional trumpet player; especially this one."
