After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

Private Trumpet Teacher

I graduated with a degree in music performance in 2019, and have over 13 years of playing experience and 5 years of teaching experience (ranging from student as young as 5 years old). Outside of music, I am a medical student (M.D.). I enjoy using music as an outlet and teach trumpet lessons because it is my passion!

As a teacher, my goal is to help not only facilitate musical interpretation and technical skills on the trumpet but also help foster a student's life-long love for music. I believe that students should not only progress technically but foster a sense of who they are as performers, regardless of their level.

As a performer, I have played in symphony orchestras, in the pit for musicals such as Pippin, Into the Woods, and The Music Man, and private gigs. I've received training in performance anxiety and overcoming fear of public performance and would be happy to discuss techniques.

About Moriah

I offer individualized lessons and am passionate about helping students' achieve their goals!. I try to provide affordable lesson prices so that financial concerns never inhibit students' ability to progress and reach their potential! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Learning to play the trumpet is a rewarding experience. Many people think you need to be big and tough to play the trumpet. But it's quite the opposite - it is an instrument requiring precision coordination between the embochure (lips) and the fingers. It's more akin to precision surgury than an athletic competition.

I will help the student develop a good foundation to play the trumpet well. Everyone wants to play loud and high but developing a good sound is crucial before attempting advanced techniques. I will help the student make sure they are developing and progressing in the right direction.

About Sean

I am a professional pianist who primarily performs but also loves to share the gift of music through teaching. My specialty is jazz but I play most other genres and am a firm believer of learning the fundamentals. Iteach all ages and levels, and want my students to be having fun! And if your pia

Hello and welcome to my studio!

***I will begin teaching online AND in-person starting in July!!!

In my studio, all trumpet players feel welcomed and I will do my best to keep you/your child happy and having fun while taking lessons :)

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure for playing, and making a nice sound will come next. I have several method books depending on your trumpet experience, but if you already have a book we can use yours. We will also work on the more detailed aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range (yay high notes!), while learning new songs!

If you are already a more advanced student, we will work on music that pushes you to a higher level (Clarke, Arbans, Bordogni, etc.). I will also give you more detailed and advanced concepts to remove excess tension, play more musically instead of robotically, and overall make playing feel much easier.

I'm glad you have decided to take

Online Trumpet Teacher

Throughout my time at Berklee, NEC, and now Juilliard, I have studied with many great teachers and musicians from Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Henderson, Kenny Barron, Tiger Okoshi, John McNeil, and Laurie Frink to Jerry Bergonzi, and Miguel Zenon. The diverse subjects we went over in lessons and classes gives me a unique knowledge of certain styles and musical ideas. I try to be as personal and individual as I can when it comes to teaching students. That was the thing that stood out amongst my favorite teachers.

About David

A graduate of the Juilliard School, I have performed with some of the worlds most accomplished and well-known musicians, including Wayne Shorter, Dave Liebman, Arturo O’Farrill, Ellis Marsalis, Randy Weston, among many others. Along with performances at the Blue Note, Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, Small

"Wade helped me find my sound in not only music but also my life. He gets to know each and everyone of his students on a personal level and tailors their lessons to fit their goals and needs. I entered his lessons at a beginner level on trumpet and over the next two semester, I was able to work my sound quality up to several years of experience within a short period of time. He is someone who has worked in both the field of education and the music business. With his knowledge he was able advised me through my music, business ventures, and life goals. Out of all of the instructors I have taken lessons through, Wade has been the only one to find a way to teach the material while impacting and interacting with today's way and age of learning. He uses music, books, audio, and media to help suit all ways of learning. I have and still recommend his work today to anyone who is interested in learning music and pursuing the arts."

His proficiency and musicianship is at a high level that I you can count on that he knows how to handle his instrument. He has a very patient and calm personality that a trumpet teacher should have to handle students. I very much recommend to have Andrew as a trumpet teacher for anyone starting and continue trumpet lessons. -Scott Cater, Director of the Reisterstown Jazz Ensemble and former trumpet teacher."
