Private Trumpet Teacher

I've been studying trumpet for 15 years, and I'm eager to work with students of all ages. I will give students a firm foundation in trumpet fundamentals, while also focusing on what the student would like to learn. I specialize in jazz and contemporary music, though I am also trained in classical music.

About Dustin

Hi! My name is Dustin. I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students develop a talent and love for music. I went to West Virginia Wesleyan College and earned a degree in Music in 2012. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Really enjoyed my first class with Dustin! He is easy-going and knowledgeable. I liked how he explains the concepts and techniques. I am very much looking forward to the next lesson.

Dustin was prompt and worked well with my middle school aged-son. Had him engaged and motivated to practice!

I feel like he really understands my struggles and how to help me. Plus, he offered to transpose some pieces that I want to play on trumpet.

He's a great instructor!

Travis is a wonderful, encouraging & enthusiastic teacher. My son (10) loves going there. He learns a lot and progresses quite quickly - and at the same time it’s always fun.

Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

Trumpet is the most physical instrument that requires your whole body to work efficiently. Understanding the breath and how to relax the body goes a long way in learning the trumpet.

About Matthew

Anyone can learn a musical instrument. I started from a blank slate which through my own interest was able to improve my skills to perform the music I love.

Greetings!

My name is Derrick Montgomery and I am currently the Professor of Trumpet at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, GA. I am also working towards a Doctorate in Music from Florida State University.

I have been teaching students of all ages for over 10 years working with students of all ages. Many of my students have won accolades as for their playing including college scholarships, placement in All-State and District Bands, and Superior ratings in Solo/Ensemble Evaluations.

My approach to the trumpet is simple, produce a beautiful tone and the rest will fall in line. Much like learning to walk, speak, or drive, we do these acts unconsciously and easily, without thinking about it. I firmly believe that with practice, trumpet can be just as easy.

I look forward to working with you!

Bill is very passionate. He teaches me all the techniques and trying to help me make a much better sound. He is strict to get every notes correct while other teachers allow easy passes. He also corrects my old habits. He is a wonderful teacher who really teaches fundamentals.

It was very detailed instruction. He provided accurate advice and easy-to-understand examples. His breathing technique, musicality and technique for expression were very helpful. And, needless to say, he had a wonderful personality.

"Bobby has a great talent for breaking down complicated music theory concepts and explaining precisely why they are important to your progression with the instrument. I started taking lessons with him after having taken a ten-year hiatus from the trumpet. During the first lesson, he was immediately able to identify where my abilities had eroded and gave me exercises to improve my technical skills. He also to helped me improve my sheet music reading skills, even transcribing some of my favorite songs into sheet music that I could memorize. I would highly recommend Bobby as an instructor. His enthusiasm for music and teaching is infectious!"

"I do have to say this has been a great experience and to mention this is our first time trying private lessons ever! My son (11) started taking online lessons with Vinnie and it has been a great experience for my son. This week will be a month of online lessons with Vinnie and I am pleased we chose him. We have never done in-person lesson but at my son's level I feel the online lesson has been very convenient, especially during these abnormal times. Vinnie is a very thorough instructor and has provided the materials for every lesson each week and goes over every detail during the lesson. He takes the time to explain the 'why' behind correct form and technique. My son has expressed that he sees progression in his trumpet execution. During these weird times, I believe this was the best choice we could have made for my son. Vinnie has an incredible background and resume especially with his experience teaching music to younger students. I would highly recommend Vinnie as your trumpet instructor no matter your experience level. Thank you Vinnie for what you do."

I've really enjoyed getting to work with a guy who has vast knowledge about many different aspects of the music making process - from gear, to business, to creativity, and technique - he knows what he's talking about :-)"

"I have taken the trumpet lessons with Bobby S. for about two years now. What I really appreciate most about Bobby is his patience. As an older student, it can be very challenging to learn trumpet. Bobby presents his lesson in a way that is easy to understand. He takes the time to explore what my difficulties are. Then he presents me with ways to challenge them. Bobby also has a good understanding of music theory. He explains and demonstrates musical concepts very thoroughly."

"I am taking online lessons with Nick, and he has helped me to understand what it is to be a musician. Before I started taking lessons, if someone asked me to play something, I was not able to do it without getting a sheet of music out and struggling A LOT. Now I am starting to be able to play the music I want to play, both by ear and reading. He teaches much more than just playing band music. I wish I could take more than a few lessons this summer."
