Great, Confident and Knowledgable Instructor!

In the short amount of time I've worked with John, he has really helped me to understand the instrument, how my body and my breath effect pitch and has really helped me to overcome my concerns with picking up the Trumpet after 10 years of not playing. He relates music to me in a way that makes it understandable and encourages me to better my playing. Great instructor! Highly recommended!

Charles W.

La Mesa, CA

I have been teaching trumpet to students of all ages and levels for 10 years, and love using my experience as a performer/teacher to help my students progress. I have been playing trumpet since the 3rd grade, and studied with renowned trumpet instructor Charles Lauer for close to 7 years. I have played trumpet in small ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, wind ensembles and musicals. I use a combination of different methods and books in my teaching, including Arbans, Clarkes, Rubank and Jamey Aebersold.

About Charles

As far back as I can remember, music has been a central part of my life. I grew up in a musical family; my father a drummer and pianist, my mother a woodwinds player, and my brother a bassist, I have been surrounded by music as far back as I can recall. Upon graduating from San Diego SCPA, I became interested in recording and audio engineering, eventually working as 2nd engineer at Signature Sound in Clairemont, and main engineer at Proxy Music in Oceanside. This afforded me invaluable experience working with some of San Diego's finest musicians and recording artists. In 2008, I attended Berklee College of Music on scholarship - majoring in Professional Music with an emphasis on performance and composition. In 2011, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Music.

Charlie is a fantastic music teacher, and an incredible musician. Just go see this guy play, and see who he plays with. So fun to work with and one of the best drummers around :-)

Charlie is exactly what I was looking for. My situation is unique but that didn't phase him. By lesson's end, I felt more like a partner in this process than a student. And that's how I operate the best, and learn the most. I'm excited. After all these years, I'm finally going to learn to play the keys!

Steve H.

Carlsbad, CA

My first instrument and the beginning of my lifetime musical education. I've played trumpet in big bands, small groups and classical orchestras. The trumpet is versatile, its exciting, and it can be fun.

About Steve

Learning to play music should be fun. Learning to play the songs you like and listen to everyday is a good first step in that direction. As early as I can remember our house was filled with music. My parents had records of the popular music of the time as well as movie soundtrack albums. At eight years old I got my first trumpet and joined the school band. Soon I was taking private lessons. We also had a piano in the house and I often found myself sitting and trying out chords and melodies to fit the songs I would hear. At sixteen I got my first guitar, along with a songbook that promised I could play “hundreds of songs with just three magic chords”. Moving west I studied music at West Los Angeles College and played trumpet in the school’s concert band. A group of us formed a

Steve is an excellent teacher

My son is 7 and taking piano lessons for the first time. I expected him to lose interest pretty quickly, but he absolutely loves it! In large part due to Steve - he is very patient and let's him learn at his own pace...no pressure. He brings songs to play that my son actually knows so he stays more engaged in interested. He really goes the extra mile to show that he cares and to keep it fun. Steve has been very easy for me to work with as well. He is always very flexible and is always on time and very professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn the piano.

Gary R.

San Diego, CA

I can teach any level of trumpet playing. Classical, Jazz, funk.
Beginners or advanced players. I have studied trumpet with many of the best teachers in America, including John Haynie, Bert Truax, and locally Gilbert Castellanos. The list is too long to name the all,but I have had opportunities to learn from many of the most famous players.

About Gary

Hello, my name is Gary R. and I am ready to get you started on a musical journey that should last a lifetime. Whether you are just beginning, or have been making music since you were a kid, I can help you. Beginners come in all ages, so don't think you are too old to play or sing. I enjoy teaching students of every age. I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of North Texas, a University well known for their music school and famous graduates. My teaching methods vary from student to student, as we all learn a bit differently. I will often write custom lesson plans for my students, as one book does not fit all. As a teacher, I enjoy a fun, relaxed learning environment designed to help you enjoy the process of becoming the best musician you can be. I

Gary is the bomb! Super friendly, professional, and knowledgable. Really helped me through learning some vocal jazz and even helped with my songwriting and composition skills. Feeling a lot more competent as a well-rounded musician after some lessons with him. Thanks G!

Gary is a great musician and a wonderful communicator. If you go to the jam sessions around San Diego you will probably catch him playing trumpet or singing and tearing it up. I've really enjoyed getting to work with a guy who has vast knowledge about many different aspects of the music making process - from gear, to business, to creativity, and technique - he knows what he's talking about :-)

Gary is a fabulous teacher and a great person! His ear and ability to really get into the groove of a jazz improv solo is amazing, and his helping me to do the same has been invaluable to my jazz journey. Gary is also a creative songwriter with a real talent for wordplay! Highly recommended to anyone of any ability - you can't go wrong with Gary Rich!
