Private Trumpet Teacher

Throughout my time at Berklee, NEC, and now Juilliard, I have studied with many great teachers and musicians from Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Henderson, Kenny Barron, Tiger Okoshi, John McNeil, and Laurie Frink to Jerry Bergonzi, and Miguel Zenon. The diverse subjects we went over in lessons and classes gives me a unique knowledge of certain styles and musical ideas. I try to be as personal and individual as I can when it comes to teaching students. That was the thing that stood out amongst my favorite teachers.

Look no further—study with a Doctor of Musical Arts with over 15 years professional playing experience and who has taught nearly 400 people.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

Jonathan has made a great impression with my son. He displays a great combination of patience and encouragement with Nick. I have seen an improvement in his trumpet skills as well as his confidence.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeas

I've had just 3 lessons with Gregory and I'm making great strides thanks to his intimate knowledge of the horn. His manner of teaching is so relaxing that it helps no feel so stressed to play. I look forward to my next lesson. He drives you in a direction that works best to the student. Hes a great teacher.
Gil
I'm 58yrs old and a comeback player. I haven't played in over 40yrs. Yesterday was my 2nd class with him. And I was amazed at how my playing is already showing progress thanks to Gregory. He puts you at ease almost immediately. He is very patient and through his instruction I've gained more confidence in my playing. Gregory gets 5 stars for his demeanor, trumpet and overall music knowledge. He is the go to instructor in my opinion.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Experienced trumpet teacher/professional player of ten years. My goal is to inspire and help each of my students grow with custom tailored lessons primarily using exercises which I create specifically for each student. I make sure that all my students have a very strong understanding of the foundation and basics of trumpet playing so they learn to play the correct way from the start. I am well versed in many genres new and old from jazz and classical to funk, pop, reggae and hip-hop. Students must have their own instrument. I provide a music stand and blank staff paper for students coming to my home location while students I drive to must have music stand.

Bebe is a fun person and Talented Teacher, Bebe knows how to takes the stress from the student and gives them the tools they need to succeed. I love going to Bebe's location and having my daughter get that one on one with her. My daughter was scared to have lesson because she was worried about being judged and Bebe helps them get over that. My daughter thought she was an Alto because everyone would tell her that. But as soon as she started going to Bebe she told her she was not she has more range then that and she is a Mezzo-Soprano. If you want a teacher who is friendly and supporting you need Bebe.. Thank you Bebe for everything you do...
