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.

Karen was great!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

John is a committed and passionate instructor who is willing to go the extra mile for his students (and their parents). I approached John to help bring the spark and joy for Trumpet back for my 13 yo son and boy has he delivered! He is patient, supportive and understanding but at the same time creative, consistent and persistent to help my son continue to excel. He finds what is relevant so that the student remains interested and engaged. I am so pleased we have found him and would recommend him 100% to anyone looking for a music teacher.

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

First lesson online with Steven. My 13 yo son was positive about his experience. They took the time to talk trombone & listen to Other artists trombone music. This approach was a natural and appropriate hook em’ for my son. Looking forward to the hands on playing and making music together in subsequent lessons.

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

About Pablo

I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment w

"I have been taking lesson with Mr. Gallo for over 4 years now and not once have he met any challenges that I face and was unable to fix it.Through Mr.Gallo's lessons,I came from being a player who lacks the desires to pick up my horn and practice everyday and someone who just doesn't have the confident to play a note properly (doing things half measure) to a player who cares about the tone quality and initiation of a note and putting in the work by practicing everyday to get good results.My work ethic and the desire to play my horn have increase through having lesson with Mr.Gallo and I would recommend this instructor to anyone who express an interest in playing Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, and French horn, or someone who just wanted to learn music theory."
