Frustrated by the physicality of the trumpet and looking to experience true freedom on the instrument?

I can help! I'm an internationally experienced professional musician with a lifelong history of teaching who's not afraid of 'problem cases'. I know my method works, because I tested it on myself first--and the proof of its efficacy is in my national and international touring career.

If you're hitting a wall in your technique or your embouchure, if you're looking to start out strong with no bad habits that will hang you up later, or if you're looking to expand your horizons beyond the conventional technique you know, call me.

In addition, you will be provided with a strong background in sight reading, technique, ear training, music theory, and improvisation while studying with me. I can't wait to help you with your goals, both long-term and short-term!

About Matthew

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music. Upon arriving

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

I have a background in Trumpet techniques and music production. As a music producer, you must be aware of what's popular and what everyone is listening to. I bring that into the musical session. As a trumpet teacher for 3 plus years, I focused on ages 9 to 18 years old. Most students develop a healthy relationship with their instrument and good practicing habits. As a classically trained musician, I created a specialized daily routine to improve your trumpet playing. I always like to introduce new and fun techniques to develop proper air control, embouchure to mention a few. I also make an emphasis on the students potential. I believe this is key to a good musical session. Over the years I've encountered many students and I like to focus on the interactions with the music. I studied at The New School of Jazz and contemporary music. There I learned how to teach the language of jazz through free improv techniques. This exercise gives the musical session life and spontaneity with the ...

"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.
