Hello and welcome to my studio!

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure, and making a nice sound will come next. And later we will work on the more intricate aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range, while learning new songs!

If you are already familiar with the basics of playing trumpet, we will work on the specific areas you want to work on.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

About Andrew

Hello and welcome to my studio! I started trumpet as a young elementary schooler and began teaching private lessons in 2015. I had very poor technique up through highschool but landed a jazz performance major in college. I hurt myself playing and started to tear muscle in my lip. I decided I

Andrew seems to be very knowledgeable as a Trumpet teacher. He teaches my son who is 12 years old. I am very happy with the way he is giving tips to my son for playing Trumpet. First I was skeptical about online classes. After three classes, I am glad I chose the online classes with Andrew. Here is the input from my son for the review >>> He answers questions well. He gives great strategies for playing trumpet. He also gives great insights before/after following his tips. <<<

I've been playing trumpet on and off for years and just had my first lesson, and can see that Andrew knows what he is doing. He is very organized, a great communicator, and listener. His guidance seems very methodical and structured which is what I need to work toward my goals.

Can’t speak highly enough about Andrew. His lessons are very engaging, he does a great job diagnosing issues, and he’s an all around fun and talented music teacher.

Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

She was very nervous and shy at first, but he has really brought her out of her shell and is making her much more confident! He has wonderful ideas and techniques that are not only helping her improve, but really encouraging her. She loves her lessons and looks forward to them every week!

She is an awesome teacher and were so happy that we able to have her teach our daughter how to play piano and learn to enjoy music. Shes great with kids, and beginners, very patient and she really knows what shes doing. I strongly recommend trying her first before going elsewhere, because after your first lesson you wont want to go anywhere else."

"As a teacher myself, the amount of educators that not only have a gift but have the passion to bestow knowledge upon others are few and far between. Salvador is one of those teachers. I have had some of his students for piano lessons. The artistry and technical improvement that his students have in guitar is incredible. He is a joy to work with. If I had children wanting to take lessons, I would choose him in a heartbeat."
