Troy S.

Fullerton, CA

Improve your technique, musicality, or prepare for an audition. Whatever you need!

About Troy

Music began for me extremely young ( age 4 ) first with piano, then with trumpet and saxophone. During High School my specialty changed to Trumpet and focused on that instrument.

During my time playing I have enjoyed being a section leader and playing for many great ensembles that bridged many genres including Classical, Jazz, Rock, Funk, Blues, Pop, as well as Orchestral.

My teachers have included many trumpet professionals including Barry Perkins and Dave Evans. I have also been influenced by and attended masterclasses by Wayne Bergeron and Malcolm McNab among others.

I have made t
he focus of my life music and I love playing and teaching music and I love meeting new people.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a current enrolled Trumpet Performance student at CSUF and I perform with some of the top ensembles in the school. I have taught lessons with all ages ranging from age 5 to age 62. My experience with trumpet is extensive and I am ready to help you with any aspect of your playing no matter if it's range, endurance, flexibility, literature, or anything else! I have also taught instruments other than trumpet including French Horn, Baritone, Euphonium, and Tuba.

All of my lessons are individually tailored to fit the student that I work with so it is hard to let you know exactly what to expect. My teaching style also may slightly change depending on my students age, activity, and attention level. Expect to learn the fundamentals first (but in an interesting way like playing duets or tunes instead of just exercises), then moving on to more advanced techniques.

I can help with school based literature and assignments for your music classes to help you be the first chair in your band!

Some methods you may expect to see me use are: Arban, Stamp (done correctly), Schlossberg, Clark, and many etude books just to name a few.

All in all I am a fun teacher who loves working with anyone to help them improve on whatever they need and want to improve on!

*** Specialties ***
I can play any style and teach any including Broadway musical book type performance. I do specialize some in classical performance.

Matthew M.

Lakewood, CA

I have been playing trumpet since the 4th grade, about 20 years now. I received my Bachelor in Trumpet Performance from the Peabody Conservatory and my Master of Music degree in Trumpet Performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory at California State Long Beach. I have performed all over the United States and abroad and have performed a wide range of musical styles in a variety of musical settings; from classical solos, to contemporary chamber orchestras, to big bands, to top 40's wedding casual bands, to reggae, ska, rock, Latin, Persian, and more still. Whether you just want to learn a bugle call for boy scouts or want to prepare for an audition, competition, or recital, I will provide a comprehensive learning experience for the trumpet. I could take you from a beginner to playing for a living if you would like.

About Matthew

Music has been a part of my life since I was 5 years old, when my father would record my brother and I singing. I always loved singing and learned many of my favorite songs as a child.

I started playing the trumpet in the 4th grade, which has led me all the way to receiving my degrees in Trumpet Performance and Music Education! I was lucky enough to attend one of the nation's top music schools, The Peabody Institute, and I now work toward my Master's degree at California State University, Long Beach. I have enjoyed performing in everything from big-band-lead to principal trumpet in the orc
hestra, leading brass quintets and brass ensembles, and much more! The trumpet has been a huge passion for as long as I can remember now!

While I was learning songs as a child, I decided I wanted to join a band! Now here we are 10 years later and I've have the fortune of performing as a lead singer in bands across the country, and let me tell you there is no bigger thrill than getting in-front of a crowd full of cheering fans, performing music you love.

I've also been playing the guitar for just under 10 years. Playing the guitar has been both a complete joy, but also a fantastic learning experience. I have been learning songs of my favorite artists and even written my own material,and having the opportunity to immerse myself in my favorite music and create music of my own has taught me so much more about music and being a musician. I hope to impart this experience onto all of my students.

Whether it's trumpet, voice, or guitar, I love all things music and my #1 objective is to for my students to learn how it feels to experience what music REALLY has to offer, so to you reading this, let's make some noise!

*** Lesson Details ***
For starters, understand that you're going to have a blast! Within months of working together, I'll have you playing your favorite songs, or feeling prepared for that upcoming audition. I remember what it was like to have second thoughts about auditioning and performance, and I'll make sure those thoughts are a thing of the past for you!

During our lessons, I enjoy addressing the material you have to work on, whether in school or just for your own enjoyment. At the same time, I will present music and materials of my own, and I encourage you to do the same!

I have always enjoyed learning from my students as they have learned from myself, and I could only hope to express how rewarding it is when I see a student of mine progress from week to week and achieve their own goals.

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, you can be guaranteed we'll make steady progress and we will achieve your goals. Get ready to wow your friends and family!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Metronome
Post-it Notes
Music Stand(s)
Chairs
Computer/Internet
Keyboard
Guitar(s)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide utilities including music stand, metronome, some external source of pitch.

I expect the student to bring any and all assigned music/material they wish to work on. The student will also begin the lesson prepared with basic necessities, including a pencil (please, no pens) and all music assigned from prior lesson (if this is a first-lesson, bring any/all music you currently have and/or are working on). Vocal students will bring a bottle of water. Trumpet students will have their own valve oil and mouthpiece (if not originally included with your horn).

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet methods include (not limited to) Arban's, Clarke, Sachs, Rubank, Getchell, Adam, Schlossberg, Colin, Bai Lin.

For instruments outside the trumpet, methods will address school curriculum, unless student has advanced beyond provided materials.

I strongly encourage students of voice, guitar, and piano to pick material of their choosing.

Classical and rock are the genres to which I am most attracted

I've been taking lessons with Matt for about 2 months now. Right away it was a very comfortable environment and vibe, which is important, especially as a beginning, aspiring singer. Takes the lessons slow and easy going at first, then jumps into exercises and focuses on directly what style the student is interested in. Very awesome dude, would definitely recommend! Thanks Matt!

As an educator, Miles is energetic and keeps lessons positive, varied, and always with a goal in mind.

Not everyone learns the same way so it is his aim to be adaptable to whatever the you need to understand and process the concepts behind good trumpet playing. He has taught all ages and skill levels, privately and in group settings, and can be a valuable asset in helping you achieve your musical pursuits. Two of his students have been placed as the principal trumpet in the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, a prestigious group for students through high school age.
