I primarily play the French horn, but I can teach basic fundamentals of trumpet playing to any beginning student, any age! Please reach out and I'll answer any questions you may have. Lessons will be catered to each student and you or your child will build a strong foundation that can be applied to all things in life! For intermediate students, I may elect to use my horn to demonstrate rather than my trumpet, but the principles are the same! An intermediate student would be most helped by me if they were to bring their own music in to work on. We will use a 2-1 approach to constructive criticism, where for every possible improvement, we will say two positives. At times, we will use singing as a tool to figure out everything from melodies and rhythm. I also believe heavily in making music fun and enjoyable and loving our own sound. The types of repertoire we will explore include and are not limited to: solo music, etudes, calisthenics, and duets. My only expectations - come in with an open mind and preparation! If you are a beginner trumpet player and do not know music theory (i.e., note reading, rhythm), please consider adding on a short Theory lesson every week so that the trumpet lessons can be the "application" part of the weekly lesson process.

I teach a wide variety of subjects through Takelessons and I am happy to be a part of some truly spectacular results from my trumpet/trombone students. My lesson plans are designed for all ability levels ranging from complete beginner to professional performer. They will help you with tuning, range, endurance, rhythm, but most importantly keep your chops (lips) in healthy condition (no-one wants to hurt after playing music!). I promise results. My Trumpet students learn songs they have always wanted while learning how to sound great. - Proper breathing/compression - Playing resonant without playing louder - Articulation styles - Range development (Low and High notes) - Personal interpretation - Brass maintenance routines - Live performance tips - Lead/Jazz/Big Band music - Classical solo/Concert Band/Wind ensemble repertoire - Simple-to-Complex Rhythms - Soloing over chords/modes - Flexibility All my students learn: - Sight reading - Music Theory - Ear training

How can I learn trumpet quickly?


Learning trumpet quickly comes down to building your foundational knowledge and mastering the technical skills of playing the instrument. Getting your embouchure right and learning your fingerings are some of the first steps, which are made a lot easier by enlisting the right teacher to help you.

Without a teacher, it’s harder to know whether you’re doing everything right from the start, and you can easily build bad habits. Finding a good trumpet lessons teacher on a site such as TakeLessons is a great way to find affordable, effective lessons to get you learning trumpet faster than you ever thought possible.

What should I learn first on trumpet?


One of the first things you should learn on trumpet is how to make a good tone. This is harder than you think and requires the proper flow of air from your mouth, a good embouchure, and proper fingering of the valves. When you’ve learned how to make a good sound, you’re able to move on from that into more foundational elements, such as playing scales, learning your fingerings, and getting a good range of notes in your repertoire.

TakeLessons has a variety of teachers that can guide you through online tennis lessons suited for your skill level. Even if you’re an absolute beginner, we can get you making a good trumpet tone in no time.
