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

Gary had his first lesson and got over the jitters of being "the first time" as well as the app which made us nervous "Yes dad especially!" being I was used to old fashion face to face lessons back in the dinasour era.

Thanks Jonathan for the great lesson and introduction to this program.

I look forward to more future lessons.

Jonathan is an excellent instructor. My lessons were scheduled in the evenings and he accommodated my busy work schedule. He presented the lessons clearly; he adapted my lesson to my learning style and never forced me into just 1 style of learning. He also gave me a lesson manual and discussed alternative ways of practicing at home. Joanathan is extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn violin.

I'm an experienced trumpet teacher/performer of 10 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical skills. I can teach in Classical, Jazz, and Rock styles, and past students of mine have been accepted at some of the best music schools in the country (ASU and Northwestern) on scholarship!

About Greg
I'm a local freelance musician living in Phoenix, AZ with a passion for many different types of music! I have a B.M. from Boston University and a M.M. from the UNC School of the Arts, both in Music Performance specializing in Trumpet. Though Trumpet is my primary instrument, I play and teach in a wide variety of musical disciplines, including Trumpet, French Horn, Piano, Music Production/Recording, Music Theory, and Ear Training. I've released one album of original music under the moniker Hands Up Eyes Shut, and I play in several groups in the Phoenix area-a classical brass quintet, two jazz combos, and an indie rock group, as well as substitute work with the Phoenix and Tucson Symphonies from time to time. On the teaching side of things, I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, maintain a healthy studio, and also teach s
everal music courses as an adjunct faculty member in the Maricopa Community College system. I've been fortunate to have trumpet students who have been accepted as music performance majors at both Arizona State University (on scholarship) and Northwestern University (the best trumpet studio in the country for many years) if you're thinking of making music a career, and I'm also available for audition coaching for any instrument if you're looking to brush up on your All Region or All State audition material!

Hello! If you would like exciting, challenging and most importantly fun trumpet lessons, study with me! I use songs/repertoire the student can choose from as the basis of musical concepts. Ear training, music theory and all technical aspects are taught consistently based on the student's skill level. The student's happiness, progress, and interest are of great importance to my teaching methods. For younger students, a curriculum is used to help gage the student's progress and understanding. For older students a curriculum is also used, however, it is more lenient in regards to the student's needs. I have experience teaching all ages from 10 to 50 yr old players, thus I understand the importance of teaching in an organized, linear way. Personally I have been playing trumpet for 17 years, teaching for 6, received my Bachelors in Music Education, and will receive my Masters in Jazz Performance from NYU. My performing experience ranges from orchestral to jazz, reggae, musical theater, and

About Alexandra
I received my Bachelors from UMASS Amherst in trumpet performance and music education. While attending I was trained to become an educator for K-12 grades, receiving experience as an elementary and high school assistant. I have taught private lessons for the past 6 years to all age groups. Throughout the years I have learned a lot about various teaching methods, the importance of curriculum, and how to hold a student's interest.

Recently, while attending NYU to receive my Masters in Jazz Performance, I have been teaching Undergraduate non-music major students trumpet and piano. All of these students have varied in musical expertise, interest in artists/genres, and of course personality and learning style. Through this I have gained much experience in how to teach the same concept different ways. Reading music, classical and jazz tongu
ing, phrasing, sight reading, and range are just a few concepts I focus on with students.

As a classical trumpet player, I understand the demands of becoming a soloist or orchestral member through learning the necessary repertoire and technique. As a jazz trumpet player, I am able to teach ear training, how to create lines and understand harmony, as well as the physical demands of range and articulation.

I am also able to teach piano, I have 4 years of classical piano experience. In addition to my personal studies and teaching experiences. I have taught piano to a range of age groups as well (5-25). Based on skill level, I use certain method books to include scales, chords, reading music, rhythm, and basic musicianship skills.

It would be wonderful to have you as my student, to train, work, and grow together as great musicians!

I was an older student but beginner trumpet player when I first started taking lessons from Alex. I didn't have much of a musical background but her clear passion about the trumpet, and her enthusiasm, patience and encouragement as a teacher made me a fan of the trumpet as well. Her lessons were varied and tailored to fit my experience level and individual playing style which kept them interesting. By introducing different and creative ways to work on technique Alex continued to make me a better player. I would highly recommend her.

New Orleans, LA

Beginners will learn how to hold and take care of their trumpet. I'll also teach how to get a sound out of the horn, reading music and some scales

Intermediate students will polish their reading skills as well as learn the scales, arpeggios, flexibility and dexterity exercises to take their fluency on trumpet to the next level.

Advanced players have the opportunity to learn how to expand their upper register, how to improvise in Jazz and/or whatever else the student would like to improve on their trumpet.

About Leon
I started playing the trumpet 29 years ago in my elementary school's concert band in New Orleans. Since 1993 I've been performing professionally around the world as a Jazz musician. The world has given me the opportunity to learn from world class musicians from the streets of New Orleans and Jackson Square to the classrooms of institutionalized learning. I studied for 2 years at the University of New Orleans,under the great jazz pianist, Ellis Marsalis, after which I continued my professional career joining the oldest, still performing Jazz band in the world, The Original Tuxedo Jazz Band led by one of my mentors Bob French. Simultaneously, I was asked to create and lead a horn section for the Latin Billboard Award winning/Grammy Nominated band Los Hombres Calientes . Also, from that time to present I perform around the world extensivel
y as a featured trumpeter/vocalist performing New Orleans' Traditional Jazz Music. I began teaching professionally around 2011 when I joined the faculty at the Don Jamison Heritage School of Music in New Orleans as the brass instructor where I also teach theory and Jazz. I've done clinics (internationally) and taught students of all ages. I really believe that when you have a desire to do something (like learn to play trumpet), your desire is a signal that you have the potential to be great at it! I can't wait to help you be great!

So before I started lessons with Leon, I was relatively new( self taught) a learning the trumpet and I was nervous about taking lessons. Mostly nervous because I didn't know what the instructor was going to have me change, and was nervous that the instructor wouldn't be understanding of my faults.

Leon Brown during the first lesson showed me that although he was my teacher, he was also there to help me progress and get better as a player and person. Every lesson after that my nervousness became less and less and my confidence has grown within 5 lessons.

I recommend Maestro Brown as a Trumpet teacher because he takes his time, makes sure you grasp the lesson, provides a comfortable atmosphere, and with hard work and dedication outside of the lesson, he will notice the work you put in.

Take the chance, don't be scared to get started on your musical journey like I was and take a chance with Mr. Leon Brown. For me at least, I have not regretted my decision and will continue lessons with him for as long as I can!

Cheers to all!

Leon is the total package. He is a professional musician ( has his own Jazz quartet, checkout You Tube), a highly recognized musical instructor in the great city of New Orleans and very patient with his students individual abilities. He can make you into whatever level of trumpeter you aspire to if you do
your part as a student. You will be fortunate and blessed to have him as a teacher.None better.

Take lessons with a experienced teacher that actively performs and teaches. What makes me a good teacher is the fact that I struggled during the first few years that I started playing. I had a work through those struggles in order to become the musician I am today, so I know how to break things down and to cater lessons to each individual student. There is no cookie cutter method for all, we each have our own issues to work on. Some naturally gifted teachers will just tell you to play something and make it work...but since I had to work hard to become successful, I can use what I learned to help you to achieve success. I will help you to build a strong fundamental base and to turn your weaknesses into strengths! Whether you are preparing for school band or ensemble, for honor band auditions, college auditions, or solo and ensemble festivals, I would be happy to help you to become the musician that you want to become.

About Christian
I've been playing brass for over 20 years, and have been teaching for about 20 years as well. I am married, have two young children and two cats. I'm so blessed to have had the opportunities to perform and travel as a musician, and I wouldn't have made it to this point with out the Lord's blessing and without people in my live teaching me, mentoring me, and supporting me. It took a lot of work to get to this point, and if you work hard you can get there too. We all start in the same place, which is, knowing nothing, and we go from there! I would be happy to help you to get there as well.

Currently, I perform as the principal euphonium with the 40th Infantry Division Band of the Army National Guard, the principal euphonium of the Southern California Brass Consortium, and the principal euphonium with the Salvation Army's Western Ter
ritory Staff Band. I also play with my church brass band at the Salvation Army!

I have experience performing as a soloist in San Diego, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Jersey, Atlanta, Seattle, Norway, United Kingdom and most recently Angola. I've also performed in Alaska, Arizona, Denver, New York, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Germany. I enjoy playing in almost any medium from Brass Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Big Band, and even Bavarian Octoberfest Bands. I've also been known to play a little valve trombone in contemporary worship bands, but don't tell any slide trombone players that because they tend to get jealous!

I have a passion for helping people grow and improve as musicians, whether you are 8 years old or 80 years old, or any age. We can all improve and grow!

He is patient and he is very thorough. He'll make sure you learn something new every lesson and he will ensure your growth as a musician. Along with teaching me how to play through difficult passages in my music he also taught me breathing techniques, tone quality, and many other great skills! Thanks to him, I was able to win a soloist competition with my bass trombone!

If you ever have a chance, take lessons with Christian and you will not be disappointed!
