Private Trumpet Teacher

Since my graduation from the University of South Carolina, I have enjoyed a varied career in performing many genres of music around the world and in the United States. I have performed pop music while sailing around the Mediterranean Sea, toured with a Broadway show in the United States, and, recently, playing jazz in New York City. My journey has also led me to learn about the physical practice of the trumpet, which has given a totally new approach on how to instruct students in a highly personal way.

I am confident that I can contribute as your trumpet instructor because of my varied career and the skills I am able to teach. Specifically:

• The traditional approach to trumpet playing, which builds a strong musician who can play with others
• The physical practice of trumpet, which takes into account the movements that need to be engrained in order to play efficiently.
• Jazz improvisation
• Commercial music style (rock, Broadway, salsa, pop, etc.)
• Music theory

Hunter is an amazing teacher. My 8-year-old looks forward to her lesson every week. Hunter is patient and very kind and finds a way to help my daughter progress even when she has trouble paying attention. He never puts any pressure on her or expects more than she can do. I recommend Hunter without reservation to anyone looking for an excellent teacher who is confident, encouraging, and engaging. He goes beyond the extra mile to help my daughter excel and I know he'll do the same for you.
Jessica
Hunter is a wonderful teacher. I began trumpet lessons with some basic knowledge of reading music but I had never picked up a trumpet before. Hunter's 8 lesson beginner lesson plan is so great for a beginner. It comes with music, fingerings, and follow/play along youtube videos that help me practice outside our lesson together. Hunter is a nurturing teacher that works with your skill level and will cater these lessons directly to your needs. From lesson one I was playing music! I would highly recommend this teacher.
Maite
Hunter taught me beginner trumpet and he's no doubt one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is very rigorous without being intimidating and puts great emphasis on encouragement so that you feel motivated to practice and get better for the next lesson. You can tell he's a very disciplined musician himself and the atmosphere of the lesson is always relaxed. You know you can ask him any question you may have as many times as necessary. Without ever neglecting technique, he had me trying tunes from the very begining so that I could see how technical exercises immediately transfer to making enjoyable music. He has many different tools to tackle a specific blockage you may have in the learning process.

Private Trumpet Teacher

Playing the trumpet is one of the greatest joys of my life and I want to share that joy with you. Whether you are to getting ready for a college audition, picking up the horn for again after putting it down fifteen years ago, or want to play better in high school band class, I am happy to help you. I cater my lessons based on the needs and goals of each student, so you can get the most out of each time we meet.

About Rafael

Born and raised in Boulder CO, NYC-based trumpeter Rafael Castillo-Halvorssen always brings joy and enthusiasm to the bandstand. He was inspired to pursue playing trumpet professionally in his early teens when he first heard Louis Armstrong’s 1956 record Ambassador Satch (go listen to it right no

Rafael is a very dedicated teacher, who is an excellent musician with outstanding ears and a passion for the subject. I particularly appreciate how he skirts the worlds of jazz and classical music, and relates to both. He has ideas of what he wants to get across in each lesson, yet also listens and responds to students feedback. I certainly recommend Rafael as a teacher!
Nolan
When I began trumpet lessons with Rafael I had zero experience on a brass instrument. He started out teaching me the basic fingerings on the horn, but before I knew it he had me learning traditional New Orleans second line music as well as some more contemporary brass band tunes. After just a few lessons with Rafael I succeeded in securing myself a spot in an audition-only, collegiate-level ensemble dedicated to playing this style of music. Rafael is fantastic teacher and pleasure to learn from. If you are looking to improve you playing and have loads of fun at the same time, Rafael is definitely the teacher for you!

What makes my Trumpet lessons unique is that I approach the instrument in a very pedagogical and simple approach. The basis of sound and ease of playing is always a top priority for myself and my students. I strive to make playing the Trumpet fun and challenging and creating the best music I possibly can with my students as I know they are also striving to become better musicians and people.

Jeremy Is amazing!
Aileen
Jeremy was great! My daughter’s first lesson went very well. Her first instructor joined the military, so we were left to select someone new. By God’s grace and a lot of help from Michael at TakeLessons, we landed on Jeremy’s profile. We couldn’t have gotten a better instructor the second time around! It’s like an extension of the first lessons! Jeremy is knowledgeable, kind, sincere, laid back, patient, and encouraging. What more could we ask for? As a mother, I really appreciate his communication with me via phone and email. If you are looking for a great instructor, you can do no better than Jeremy!

We have been so glad that we tried TakeLessons and found Bill! He has done a great job engaging my 12 year old daughter. He assessed her skill level and got to work. He encourages her and through his lessons she has noticeably improved on the tuba. Also his communication has been excellent and as a busy mom, that is important!

Not good. We signed up and set up everything. This teacher never showed up to a lesson. We have contacted take lessons several times to arrange for another teacher or get a refund and have had no response.
Marcello S.
Amazing teacher who was patient and kind with a 13 year old who decided to learn an instrument without the benefit of a band class in middle school. I am very impressed with the tools she introduced him to, the lessons she laid out for him to accomplish on his own and how she left him motivated to get started right away on practicing.

Jennifer's teaching style is one of positive encouragement and incredible patience. She took the extra time to find music of interest to my son to enhance and make the lessons fun, especially due to his frustration with some of the more boring pieces of music assigned through the school. I highly recommend Jennifer!"
