Improving one's skills in any area is exhilarating and rewarding, and it happens most quickly when the lessons and homework are paced just right for the student's level. As a teacher, I try to balance time spent on technique and foundation with time on creative, right-brained musical play.

I have experience in jazz, classical, flamenco, funk, Cuban music, pop music, and all kinds of other styles of music. Let me know if you have a particular interest in any genre or even a specific artist you'd like to emulate.

Besides teaching instrument playing techniques, music theory, and improvisation, I also spend time in lessons helping students find their own best practice. I believe it is possible to help students find a level of flow that is unparalleled when they condition themselves to practice with deep presence and awareness of their own state.

It brings me great joy to facilitate the incredible feeling of exhilaration that accompanies improving one's music skills.

About J.Q.

I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I studied Mandarin Chinese at Oberlin College (Bachelors, '02). I lived and worked in Shanghai, China, from 2003 to 2010. I've been teaching music and language lessons for over 15 y

I have literally looked for years for the right trumpet teacher for my 12 year old son. JQ is a treasure. He challenges the student appropriately but is also gentle and understanding about the realities of life for a 12 year old in NYC. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Very skilled teacher, performer, and totally on point with showing up, planning ahead, etc.
Joey
Fantastic trumpet instructor. JQ is patient, receptive, encouraging—the list goes on. He's helped me go from literally not being able to make a decent note to playing a little shindig on New Year's for my family. Highly recommended. I'm still taking lessons!
Sean
I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him.

The trumpet is a colorful and exciting instrument played in many styles of music throughout the world, from jazz and classical to funk and soul to reggae, afro-beat, and Balkan music. In addition to covering the basic technical requirements of the instrument, I'm particularly interested in the many genres in which the trumpet can be found, and I like to focus on the styles of music that most interest and challenge my students. I have been playing trumpet for more than 18 years, and I teach my students valuable brass exercises based on lessons I learned under the tutelage of John McNeil, Laurie Frink, and Walter White. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and trumpet calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility.

About Bobby

I am a jazz trumpeter, improviser, and composer as well as an avid listener and enthusiastic educator. I maintain an active performance schedule playing improvised music as well as funk, soul, afro-beat, reggae, hip-hop, and American folk music. In addition to trumpet, I have experience performing a

Atanas F.
Bobby has been a great teacher. I am in my 30s, trumpet beginner and with very limited time due to busy work schedule.Despite those limitations, Bobby has managed to keep every lesson interesting and challenging by mixing music theory, drills, and popular tunes fitted to my personal taste in music. I feel I am making steady progress.

*Available for Summer Lessons*

As a collegiate educator, I have been a trumpet instructor on TakeLessons since 2014, and have been teaching all the brass instruments since 2006.

For the beginner level, I have introduced many students to their first instrument ensuring that fundamentals are in place. At the intermediate level, I have helped many students advance in competitions and seat assignments within their band program. As a collegiate educator, I have given masterclasses at universities and private lessons to music performance students preparing for auditions and solo recitals.

My students truly enjoy the online interaction during their lessons.

I have taught a wide variety of ages - everyone from 10 years old to 76 years old. One of the great joys I have in teaching is that each student brings their own unique strengths to lessons. My goal is to raise their level of playing while always having fun.

About Jeremy

My name is Jeremy S. and I have been on TakeLessons since 2014 and have been teaching privately since 2006. As a college instructor, I teach in the brass areas at The Ohio State University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Kenyon College, and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The trombone is my prima

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"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!"
