Trumpet:
A trumpet is a musical instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group contains the instruments with the highest register in the brass family. They are played by blowing air through almost-closed lips (called the player's embouchure), producing a "buzzing" sound that starts a standing wave vibration in the air column inside the instrument. I begin teaching from the beginning with the very basics of breathing, embouchure, fingerings, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, scales, theory and improvisation.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Private Trumpet Teacher

Hello! My name is Nathan Kay. I'm a young professional trumpet player in Boston and specialize in Jazz and Classical Trumpet. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the Eastman School of Music in 2019, and have been fortunate to teach at music camps and privately as well over the past three years. My teaching is guided by two very important principles:
1: Teaching music is not only teaching music itself, but also teaching an appreciation for it as well. Music should be fun!
2: Every student is different, and everyone learns in a different way. Education should be personalized, and I will help each student achieve their personal individual goals!

About Nathan

I'm a professional trumpet player and composer originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but have now recently moved to Boston for a year. My passion is writing/playing music, and I have been fortunate to share music with audiences across the United States. Growing up in a musical family, I was constan

Bryan has very unique lesson plans and can channel his musical thoughts very clearly. He was very understanding and reflective of my needs. He then presented me with a series of mental models and exercises which i am certain will make me not just a better pianist but a better musician and also help me appreciate music better.

I would highly highly recommend Bryan and i will certainly continue the musicial journey with him.

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.

She was very knowledgeable and very helpful!!

Outstanding start.
Gina
While I had previous experience playing an instrument MANY years ago, I never played the piano and started taking lessons with Lori as an adult. In almost no time I was able to read the bass clef (left hand) notes and within the year I had learned all the scales (majors and relative minors - both harmonic and melodic) and arpeggios (root and inversions). I was also playing "real" pieces of music.

Lori stresses good technique and good practice habits and can suggest more than one way to master a concept. She also makes learning the piano fun.
