My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. D
uring my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio along.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have the "Young Musicians Showcase" every few months where individual students and band classes have a chance to perform and celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family.
Adult students occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Multiple Music Stands

*P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, and a Banjo

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

Our first lesson:

Jesse taught my daughter a lot of information about the trumpet that she had not learned in her school band. He talked with her at her level and encouraged her.

Stephen is the perfect teacher for my 14 year old son who is a beginner on trumpet. My son enjoys trumpet as a hobby, and plays in his school band. Stephen's lessons are fun and low pressure. He is remarkably calm and professional, and he doesn't waste any lesson time. My son looks forward to his lessons with Stephen.

Chien-Kai W.

San Jose, CA

The most important thing I want my students to get out of playing horn is to enjoy the experience. My goals in teaching trumpet are to make sure that you have a good fundamental understanding of the sound, rhythm, air support, and reading skills in order to play in any ensemble setting. Whether you are an individual who has some prior experience with playing the trumpet or still a beginner, I would love the chance to show you the fun in playing music. I am so excited and hope to work with you!

About Chien-Kai

Hi! My name is Chien-Kai W. and I am a very energetic, friendly, and outgoing person. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music and Minor in Kinesiology. I have played horn for over ten years and have learned how to play and teach the fundamentals of numerous woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. Along with my education, I devote myself to exercise and participate in athletic and extra-curricular activities: running half marathons, learning new sports, dancing ballroom competitions, and teaching and assisting social dance lessons.

Although I
am classically trained, I strive to in making sure that my students succeed in their fundamentals and are having a fun, good experience. My goals as a teacher is to make sure that you achieve your goals as a artist, performer, and learner. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and have you experience the best of your interests and craft.

Mr. Wang's teachings made impact on my son's trumpet skills in just five lessons. He worked diligently with my son to improve on his weak points and gave him excellent tips to be better with his instrument. He encouraged him along the way and his support has already made my son a better trumpet player.

Mr. Wang is an excellent teacher. He focuses on the fundamentals and really works on the important details. He helps set goals and work toward them each lesson. The experience with Mr. Wang has been great.

Roussell W.

San Jose, CA

I've been teaching Trumpet for 20 years and my students have gone on to become professional musicians. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to create great tones on your trumpet and as time goes on you'll be able to play scales and songs. I specialize in smooth jazz and big band New Orleans style second line styles. I typically use Arbon books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you to improve your skill!
