I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Trumpet is a wonderful instrument for both the young and young-at-heart. I have been playing trumpet for most of my life, and teaching it for 14 years.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

I currently teach trumpet at the New School for Leadership and the Arts, but I have many years' experience teaching music to students of all ages. I teach to the abilities, passions, and ambitions of the student(s).

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

About Travis
Hi,

My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet Performance from the University of Maryland College Park.

While there, I played with the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra and Jazz Band. I am also a regular performer with the Prince Georges Philharmonic.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work through the fundamentals of the instrument including fingerings, embouchure, breathing and scales. Once mastered, the more difficult obstacles such as range, dexterity, repertoire and endurance are approached. I do not work with a set schedule for s
tudents, and tailor the lesson plan for the student's growth and practice.

Travis is a great teacher, he is patient and has vast knowledge of music theory. He has a warm personality which sets the tone for me to learn. He started with the basics, my posture, breathing and how to hold the trumpet and it's parts. I look forward to each lesson.

Playing a brass instrument can be a fun and rewarding experience when approached in the correct way. I help all my students develop a good attitude toward playing music, as well as setting them up for success in developing a good sound and technique. I have helped students prepare for all situations, including auditions, adjudications, and yearly band concerts.

About Joel
Hello! I have played brass instruments in many different ensembles over the last 15 years, including concert bands, jazz ensembles, brass quintets, marching bands, drum and bugle corps, and more, and I would like to share these experiences with you as you build your own rewarding experiences with music.

I attended Hofstra University and The Hartt School, earning a B.S. in Music Education and an M.M. in Euphonium Performance, respectively. I am available for students of all ages and backgrounds, and will attend to the goals of each student separately and deliberately.

I look forward to getting more competent with each succeeding lesson.

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.

About David

Neves was awarded a full scholarship to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, he was chosen to be a member of the prestigious Berklee Global Jazz Institute. Through this program, David had the privilege of studying and performing with some of the most accomplished and well-known jazz musicians in the world, including Wayne Shorter, Dave Liebman, Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, Joe Lovano, and George Garzone. Neves then attended the prestigious New England Conservatory where he received his Master’s of Music in Jazz Performance.

A world-class musician, David’s talents have sent him all over the globe to venues such as the Tokyo Jazz Festival, Torino Jazz Festival, Panama Jazz Festival, and the Newport Ja

Recently, Neves was faculty at the 2016 Torino Jazz Festival where he conducted masterclasses, as well as the advanced ensemble that was featured at the festival, performing “April 14th, 2013” from his debut album, “Progress Report.”

In February 2014, David independently released Progress Report, his first full-length album as a leader and composer. This project debuts intriguing, all-original music, and David is joined by some of the finest young musicians in Boston and New York.

A recent recipient of the prestigious Artist Diploma in Jazz Studies at the Juilliard School under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, Greg Gisbert, and Ben Wolfe; David is currently performing and teaching in the New York, and Boston areas.

With over a decade of professional international and national performing experience and a decade of teaching privately, I offer a plethora of knowledge for you or your child. From beginner to advanced trumpet, if you want to learn it, I can teach it! I have a unique teaching style that allows me to adapt to the needs of my students, assuring the success of each student. Whether you're just starting out, wanting to learn a little bit more, or want to reach for the Double High C and beyond, I will help get you there!

About Joshua
Thank you for considering me as your new trumpet instructor! I began playing professionally at age 16, and have continued to do so since. I hold a Bachelor of Music from Winthrop University where I was the Bruce Thompson Concerto Competition winner my senior year. I also earned a Master of Music in Jazz Performance from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on a full tuition waiver.

The most notable aspects of my professional career were performing as the lead trumpet for Royal Caribbean Cruises, and as a trumpet player in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. I visited over a dozen countries with Royal Caribbean and toured from coast to coast with the Ringling Brothers.

I've taught privately throughout my career, and had a successful private studio during my master's degree in Illinois. I'm still in touch with a few
students and parents, and am happy to see the students enjoying their success on the trumpet.

I'm planning on earning a Doctorate of Music from UT Austin beginning Fall 2018, so I will be in the Austin area for a significant amount of time.

Frustrated by the physicality of the trumpet and looking to experience true freedom on the instrument?

I can help! I'm an internationally experienced professional musician with a lifelong history of teaching who's not afraid of 'problem cases'. I know my method works, because I tested it on myself first--and the proof of its efficacy is in my national and international touring career.

If you're hitting a wall in your technique or your embouchure, if you're looking to start out strong with no bad habits that will hang you up later, or if you're looking to expand your horizons beyond the conventional technique you know, call me.

In addition, you will be provided with a strong background in sight reading, technique, ear training, music theory, and improvisation while studying with me. I can't wait to help you with your goals, both long-term and short-term!

About Matthew
I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music.

My instrumental ability has allowed me to take professional tours both nationally and internationally as a sideman (Durand Jones and the Indications, Indiana Jazz Exchange), and my writing for large ensemble has been featured by multiple groups (Sean Imboden Large Ensemble, Liberation Music Collective).

I'm very passionate about helping people realize their own internal goals, no matter how far off they may seem to them. I already feel we can work together to help you do it, and we haven't even met yet! My mix of academic training, professional experience, an
d natural affability make the learning experience easy, stress-free and fun.

I can teach you how to:
1) play trumpet
2) play trombone
3) play drums
4) understand and internalize music theory
5) improvise, from absolute beginner to professional-tier tips and tricks
6) write music for all sizes of ensembles (solo singer-songwriter to 18-piece big band)

Styles I've got professional experience playing: rock, funk, soul, R&B, jazz (combo), jazz (big band), and classical.

Let's learn together!
