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.

About Karen

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

I want you to learn to express yourself through the trumpet, to help you master it and have lots of fun in the process! Trumpet was my second musical instrument (my first was my voice!), which I played through most of grade school and into high school. I can help you with good breath support and creating clear, steady tone.

I'd never had any experience aside from singing in my car. Rob helped me learn many different exercises and helped me identify and unlearn bad habits I had picked up. He helped me learn to sing a lot of different songs that I enjoyed and is quick to map out the vocal notes on the piano to help me more easily understand and hit the notes I need to. Definitely recommend him as an instructor!
Jordan W.
Great exercises and feedback for singing. I felt much more comfortable singing with Rob than I expected.

"Gary has been great. My son really enjoys playing the trumpet and looks forward to his lessons with Gary. That is a very different experience from my music lessons as a kid. Gary is a true musician with a thorough understanding of many music styles. He's very patient and has a great temperament for working with kids. My wife and I aren't musically inclined and really needed the help getting our son on his way musically. He's now the best in his school band, and again, he really loves it and enjoys his lessons with Gary."

"I had the pleasure of studying with Svend for over a year while he was in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Svend was a patient and thoughtful teacher. He always encouraged me, even when I had some pretty rough embouchure problems and played very poorly.

We worked together to get me back on course and then Svend concentrated on teaching me to play musically.

Svend understands and can convey all areas of trumpet playing and musicianship. He covers technique, range, endurance, and musicality."
