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

Phil Norris has been teaching trumpet since 1983. He teaches the physical side of the trumpet as well as the musical side. The trumpet, being one of the most physically grueling instruments, demands this. He gives a customized routine for the student to do at home and he also helps with those who are having embouchure problems, whether they’ve developed a bad habit or have had to deal with braces.
On the musical side, Phil teaches jazz improv, big band lead, how to play in a rock horn section, and even classical style. Of course reading music and helping with the student’s school material is also focused on.

I have over 10 years teaching experience from beginner through professional level. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the top trumpet instructors in the world and want to share my knowledge and experience with my students. My mission as a teacher is to inspire students to learn the art of the trumpet through a growth and goal oriented approach. I encourage my students to think critically and reflect frequently on their own playing as well as the musical meaning of their pieces. Whether the student is preparing for All-State auditions, college auditions, solo and ensemble, is having chop problems, needs and embouchure change, or just starting out and wants to learn good habits and skills, I can help along the way.

About Philippe
I am a professional trumpet player and teacher of all levels. I have performed across the US, Canada, UK, and Europe with groups the likes of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, the Miami City Ballet, Naples Philharmonic, Southwest Florida Symphony, South Florida Symphony, the Aspen Music Festival, the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, the Henry Mancini Institute, the Dartington Music Festival in the UK. I also premiered a concerto for solo trumpet called Fanfares for the Apocalypse by Rome Prize winner, Ken Ueno which can be heard in my videos.

I have had the privilege of studying with some of the best trumpet teachers and players in the world. I earned my Doctorate in Trumpet Performance from the University of Miami. I have well over a decade of experience teaching trumpet at all levels including repertoire, technical he
lp, and even chop rebuilds. I am familiar and have taught nearly all of the major pedagogical trumpet methods including Arban, Schlossberg, Stamp, Thompson, Franquin, Caruso, and of course, CIarke. I went through a major embouchure change in 2009 and have come from barely being able to play, to playing with professional groups and making a living as a trumpet player. I am proof that dedication and hard work do pay off and can result in a real career playing the trumpet, despite the odds.

As your teacher and guide, I will commit to seeing you succeed and provide you with the necessary tools to do so.

“…visionary and tireless trumpeter “ Edward Carroll

“Philippe is a person that sees no obstacle that cannot be overcome. In fact, he sees that obstacle as a play-toy to invent and to discover new innovations with creativity and aplomb.” Russell DeVuyst, former associate principal Montreal Symphony.

“Virtuosity was decidedly the order of the evening. . . .P. T. Barnum probably would have said that the ability to bear witness to such a breadth of skills would have made last night’s concert worth the price of admission. On the whole, I suspect I would have agreed with him.”

Online Special ! 15 minutes extra time for students who book online at no extra cost.
//clinician, professional trumpet player & maker// Over the past 26 years I developed my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way.

The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier.

I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes.

If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less.

I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.).

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 have been playing trumpet ever since I was a young elementary schooler and I began teaching private lessons in 2015.

When we start lessons, I will begin with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. We will then work on developing a proper embouchure and making a nice sound. Later we will get to the more difficult parts of trumpet playing like flexibility, dexterity, articulations, and of course... high notes.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! Let's get started!

My son has been taking trumpet lessons in our home with Andrew for several months and it has been fantastic. First of all, Andrew is always on time and ready to go and he communicates all the small details very well. Second, he is a great trumpet player and teacher. Andrew helps my son work on all aspects of the trumpet and he has really improved his overall understanding of the instrument. My son has been playing the trumpet for 7 years and he is still learning new techniques from Andrew. Finally, Andrew provides written notes and/or a follow up email with instructions for my son to work on before the next lesson. I really enjoy listening to their lesson. I would definitely recommend Andrew for trumpet lessons!

Week after week, Andrew always finds ways to deepen my knowledge of the trumpet and my own playing! Andrew is an incredible player as well as an incredible teacher, and his lessons make me realize concepts about the trumpet that I could have never even imagined! My playing has improved tremendously since I began taking lessons with him, and his lessons enable the learner to develop an awareness of the instrument as well as their own physicality while playing. Furthermore, Andrew takes great care to adjust each lesson in a way that is applicable and makes sense to each student he teaches. Knowing someone with such a passion for playing the trumpet and the fact the he loves to share that passion with others motivates me to improve and love the music that I play personally. Incredible experience!

Antonia is a gifted and kind teacher. She gave my 15 year old singing lessons. My daughter was very hesitant at first but after the first day that subsided. Antonia is practical with praise and instilled the realistic aspect of practice and hard work needed to succeed. I saw my daughter go from a kid who would never sing in front of people to one who practiced drills, learned music and performed for the first time in front of an audience with confidence and poise. I cannot thank Antonia enough for her kindness, patience and real approach to teaching.
