Having played in groups like Wind Ensembles, Orchestras, Quintets, Jazz Ensembles, Brass Bands, Combos, etc., I can and will teach any and all styles from beginner to advanced levels. I will push you as hard as you want to be pushed from your lessons, and can help you become competitive in auditions for jobs, gigs, honor bands, and school. I have a methodical approach to the instrument which includes not only the physical aspect of the trumpet, but the mental aspect, which is largely ignored.

About Aaron
I recently graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Music with an emphasis on trumpet performance. I'm currently teaching and working with my time between now and when I begin a Master's program. I am also a trumpet player in the Army National Guard, and am very active with gigs and playing taps with the Army.

I have over 5 years of experience teaching beginner and intermediate trumpet. Students are my number one priority. I believe in teaching outside the book, to give each one of my students an individualized plan to reach their goals. I will always go above and beyond to steer you in the right direction, and to make your music experience last a lifetime.

Students can expect to be appropriately challenged with repertoire, in a supportive, communicative environment. I am happy to work on school repertoire, pop tunes or music from the standard repertoire. I believe in efficiency and getting the most out of your practice time. We all lead busy lives, I will teach you how to accomplish your goals with the time you want to invest.

Unfortunately I do not teach beginners online, only in person. It is impossible to develop the appropriate sound and skills without being there in person. I can help you find someone in your area, please feel free to reach out!

About Jessica
Thanks for checking out my teaching profile! I currently live in New York City (Queens) where I freelance and teach a variety of students. As the school year is about to begin, I have availability during the week and on Saturdays. I suggest booking sooner rather than later! Please feel free to send me a personal message if you have any questions.

I have experience teaching beginners, both young and adult! I include music theory and history into each lesson but am also available for tutoring. I have taught masterclasses at high schools and universities, and am currently working on my own pedagogical resource for brass teachers.

I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

We live in a rural area with no private trumpet instructors, so when my son was begging for lessons, we looked to the internet and found Michael via Take Lessons. My son took lessons for several months until he got busy with sports, and we had a phenomenal experience with Michael. He was always prompt and very encouraging. He communicated well and shared lesson materials well in advance. He even checked in on Aiden during the week to make sure he was practicing. As a musician and piano teacher myself, I initially had my doubts about the quality of online lessons, but my expectations were vastly exceeded. If you're looking for a trumpet teacher, please consider Michael. You will be so happy you did! It is wonderful to hear how my son's playing ability has been elevated. We will definitely choose Michael when life slows down and my son is ready to take lessons again. Thanks again Michael!!!

Take lessons with a experienced teacher that actively performs and teaches. What makes me a good teacher is the fact that I struggled during the first few years that I started playing. I had a work through those struggles in order to become the musician I am today, so I know how to break things down and to cater lessons to each individual student. There is no cookie cutter method for all, we each have our own issues to work on. Some naturally gifted teachers will just tell you to play something and make it work...but since I had to work hard to become successful, I can use what I learned to help you to achieve success. I will help you to build a strong fundamental base and to turn your weaknesses into strengths! Whether you are preparing for school band or ensemble, for honor band auditions, college auditions, or solo and ensemble festivals, I would be happy to help you to become the musician that you want to become.

About Christian
I've been playing brass for over 20 years, and have been teaching for about 20 years as well. I am married, have two young children and two cats. I'm so blessed to have had the opportunities to perform and travel as a musician, and I wouldn't have made it to this point with out the Lord's blessing and without people in my live teaching me, mentoring me, and supporting me. It took a lot of work to get to this point, and if you work hard you can get there too. We all start in the same place, which is, knowing nothing, and we go from there! I would be happy to help you to get there as well.

Currently, I perform as the principal euphonium with the 40th Infantry Division Band of the Army National Guard, the principal euphonium of the Southern California Brass Consortium, and the principal euphonium with the Salvation Army's Western Ter
ritory Staff Band. I also play with my church brass band at the Salvation Army!

I have experience performing as a soloist in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Jersey, Atlanta, Seattle, Norway, United Kingdom and most recently Angola. I've also performed in Alaska, Arizona, Denver, New York, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Germany. I enjoy playing in almost any medium from Brass Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Big Band, and even Bavarian Octoberfest Bands. I've also been known to play a little valve trombone in contemporary worship bands, but don't tell any slide trombone players that because they tend to get jealous!

I have a passion for helping people grow and improve as musicians, whether you are 8 years old or 80 years old, or any age. We can all improve and grow!
