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

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

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!!

My approach in teaching is firmly grounded in developing a healthy and self-driven practice culture in my students. As a practicing teacher, I strive tirelessly to lead by example. I ensure my students feel empowered after each lesson and hold them accountable to commit to their own daily grinds. For working with a new student, my typical process is to begin with the end in mind. According to the particular needs and expectations of the student, we discuss attainable and measurable goals for a given period of time. Especially during times of difficulty, I encourage my students to follow their curiosity and guard their motivation as we share the journey of music making together.

About Tommy

As a strong believer in the life-changing power of music, my teaching is driven by my purpose to serve and empower students of all backgrounds to realize their full potential and to leave a positive impact on the lives of others.

During my time with Tommy, he has helped me improve in many areas. I feel that I learn and improve every lesson. Tommy is committed to teaching and points things out where I can improve upon. While teaching, Tommy uses many analogies that help me better understand what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it.

I specialize in brass instruments, and have 20 years of experience. I can teach you everything from sound production and control to crossing from mere technique into meaningful music. We can talk about everything from a trumpeter's leadership role in the orchestra to handling the stress of a competitive instrument. There's a certain trumpet "swagger," and I can help you *earn* it.

About Holly

My 20 years of musical experience taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results.

Great first lesson! Erin was very happy and looking forward to next week.

She is a great teacher. I started playing trombone in October 2019, and had practically no skills or knowledge about trombone. I started taking lessons in May 2020 and have become the best player in my school by a lot. She makes practicing fun and despite being online, it was always exciting to learn every week. I recommend her a lot.

Learn music from an experienced teacher in a fun and positive environment!

I have played trumpet for over 20 years, and taught students of all ages and skill levels for over 10 years. My approach to teaching the trumpet is both fun and straightforward. I have played trumpet in small ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, wind ensembles and musicals. I use a combination of different methods and books in my teaching, including Arban's, Clarke's, Rubank's and Jamey Aebersold.

In trumpet lessons, we focus on the following:

-Proper technique and posture
-Good tone
-Sight reading
-Playing songs we like!
-Playing by ear
-Improvisation (If student is interested)
-Jazz
-Pop/Contemporary

Charlie is a fantastic music teacher, and an incredible musician. Just go see this guy play, and see who he plays with. So fun to work with and one of the best drummers around :-)
Steve G.
Charlie is exactly what I was looking for. My situation is unique but that didn't phase him. By lesson's end, I felt more like a partner in this process than a student. And that's how I operate the best, and learn the most. I'm excited. After all these years, I'm finally going to learn to play the keys!

"I started taking lessons with Mr. Gallo when I was in 6th grade. I am in tenth grade now and I am a phenomenal player. Whether I needed help with a playing issue or had an event and wanted to be ready, he always knows the answer. Every time I think I have reached my peak in playing, he surprises me and bumps me to the next level. Solo ensemble is a band event in which you would go to and have judges judge your playing on a particular song. This year I am playing a level 7, which is the highest level of difficulty you can play for this and will ever see in the real world musician life. Most professionals can't do this. No one you can find will be as good as a teacher as Mr. Gallo."
