Experienced trumpet and brass teacher of 27 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical skills. I specialize in Classical, rock, blues, and jazz. I can work with any method book that is used in schools, but I also like to supplement with the Jamey Aebersold books for improvisation and the Rubank, Clarke Technical Studies and Arban Method. I have studied with Vince Penzarella, Mel Broiles, Laurie Frink, Ed Treutel and many others.
Learn to play the trumpet! Students will learn to develop properly formed embouchure, efficient breathing, breath control, posture and diaphragm support, note fingerings, and develop valve technique,
learn and develop proper tonguing and lip flexibility.
Both classical and jazz lessons available.
Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.
An instrumentalist since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning trumpet lessons.
I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance.
Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes!
Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!
