David Smith is a fantastic teacher, musician and communicator. He understands how to diagnose what issues a student is facing on the horn. He played a very big role in the preparation I did for my senior recital when I was an undergraduate trumpet student, and he was very encouraging throughout the whole process. If you take lessons with him, you are going to get a step by step plan that will help you reach your goals.

Travis does a great job! I noticed an improvement after the first lesson my son had with him.

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!

Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

I believe that music should be fun, and that each student will find their own passions within music. Discipline, awareness, and creativity walk hand-in-hand when it comes to learning the trumpet. My teaching approach focuses on the body mechanics of playing the trumpet, and developing musicality via ear training. Practice pays off, and I can show you how to effectively practice.

"I have been taking lessons from Jonathan for 6 months and it has been a tremendously enjoyable experience. Jonathan has an excellent methodology to teaching music which is a mixture of technical exercises and application of the theory to learning how to make music. The dual approach allows me to not only understand and appreciate the theoretical and technical aspects of learning the instrument, but also gives me the sense of fun and satisfaction that comes with applying what I learn and seeing the output in a piece of music. Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable about the technical aspects of the instrument and can break this knowledge down for easy elucidation. Overall it has been great learning experience."

"Caleb tunes right into your experience level and has a ton to offer right from the beginning while being really easy to work with. We talked about goals and trumpet history and started structuring a new warmup routine. With Caleb's diverse performing experience, he can teach you about hip hop, funk, jazz, orchestral, and small ensemble brass work (plus probably some other stuff I don't know about yet)."

"My teen daughter has had one lesson with Holly so far and we are both very impressed. Her initial lesson included a thorough evaluation so she knew just where my daughter was starting from, and progressed to an actual lesson. It was clear to me that my daughter learns easily from Holly's teaching style and I could hear her progress throughout the hour. Additionally, Holly has an upbeat, positive attitude that only added to my daughter's enjoyment. She's counting down the days until her next lesson."

When does a kid ever ask to take more lessons!? My husband was equally impressed and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Gary & thank you takelessons.com"

"Gary is an amazing teacher, the best I've had. He not only knows what he's doing, but he is very adept at explaining in a way that I can understand. Currently he is teaching my brother trumpet, my sister French horn and me trombone. We are all learning at incredible rates and we all started at different levels. On top of that, we can all tell that he really cares about us and wants to help us do well in all of our individual musical endeavors. He is helping my brother with jazz improv, my sister with tone and me with musical arranging. It is very personalized and that's what makes him a great teacher."

"Holly knows how to motivate her students and lays out clear goals and practice routines that her students can easily follow. I can count with one hand the number of days my son took home his trumpet for practice during the past two years. This changed dramatically when he started taking lessons from Holly. He has been practicing trumpet every day since, even during our drive to the Tanglewood concert! Three lessons in, I feel that he has already accomplished more in 15 days than what he has achieved in the past two years in his middle school band. The only regret that I have is that we did not start this sooner!"
