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.

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.

As a trumpeter, my skills vary from technique, jazz improvisation, lead trumpet playing, to classical playing. I was a member of the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra in 2018, a jazz band consisting of musicians selected from across the United States. With this band I traveled to Japan and performed in the Monterey Jazz Festival in California. I have also toured Europe on several other occasions playing festivals such as the Montreux Jazz Festival and the Umbria Jazz Festival with the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra. Here in the States I have played at venues such as Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, Birdland, Chris’s Jazz Café in Philly, The Kennedy Center, and more.

About Jonny

I am a current student at William Paterson University studying jazz trumpet and music education. I have been fortunate to study with nationally and internationally acclaimed trumpeters Jeremy Pelt, Joe Mosello, and Nathan Eklund. Additionally, I have studied under the great guitarist Joseph Federic

My daughter started with Jonny when she was in the fifth grade. Jonny makes the experience of learning trumpet very enjoyable and my daughter finds him very patient and kind. There's never any pressure to master technique in a certain time frame. Jonny is a very accomplished musician and blends his knowledge from his different teachers to give his students a holistic and fun experience!
Lori
Jonny Gittings is not only a remarkable and exceptionally talented musician, he is equally skilled in his instruction. My son and daughter have taken trumpet lessons from Jonny for years and he is professional, knowledgeable, and always has a plan and a solution. No matter what may be troubling my kids with their music, their form or their instrument, Jonny always makes them feel at ease and helps them overcome any obstacle. We feel so fortunate to have learned from the best!

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.

Cecily
We live in a rural area with no private trumpet instructors, so when my son was begging for lessons, we looked to the internet and found Michael via Take Lessons. My son took lessons for several months until he got busy with sports, and we had a phenomenal experience with Michael. He was always prompt and very encouraging. He communicated well and shared lesson materials well in advance. He even checked in on Aiden during the week to make sure he was practicing. As a musician and piano teacher myself, I initially had my doubts about the quality of online lessons, but my expectations were vastly exceeded. If you're looking for a trumpet teacher, please consider Michael. You will be so happy you did! It is wonderful to hear how my son's playing ability has been elevated. We will definitely choose Michael when life slows down and my son is ready to take lessons again. Thanks again Michael!!!
Alistair
I found this to be the perfect combination. Michael is a young college student where as I am on the verge of retirement. Michael was patient, treated me as the beginner that I am and spoke to me in a language I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Beginners will learn how to hold and take care of their trumpet. I'll also teach how to get a sound out of the horn, reading music and some scales

Intermediate students will polish their reading skills as well as learn the scales, arpeggios, flexibility and dexterity exercises to take their fluency on trumpet to the next level.

Advanced players have the opportunity to learn how to expand their upper register, how to improvise in Jazz and/or whatever else the student would like to improve on their trumpet.

About Leon

Alex
So before I started lessons with Leon, I was relatively new( self taught) a learning the trumpet and I was nervous about taking lessons. Mostly nervous because I didn't know what the instructor was going to have me change, and was nervous that the instructor wouldn't be understanding of my faults.

Leon Brown during the first lesson showed me that although he was my teacher, he was also there to help me progress and get better as a player and person. Every lesson after that my nervousness became less and less and my confidence has grown within 5 lessons.

I recommend Maestro Brown as a Trumpet teacher because he takes his time, makes sure you grasp the lesson, provides a comfortable atmosphere, and with hard work and dedication outside of the lesson, he will notice the work you put in.

Take the chance, don't be scared to get started on your musical journey like I was and take a chance with Mr. Leon Brown. For me at least, I have not regretted my decision and will continue lessons with him for as long as I can!

Cheers to all!
Marc
Very valuable session. Leon has a calming and patient manner. I myself am a master's degree carrying teacher so I appreciate good instruction.
Darrell G.
Leon is the total package. He is a professional musician ( has his own Jazz quartet, checkout You Tube), a highly recognized musical instructor in the great city of New Orleans and very patient with his students individual abilities. He can make you into whatever level of trumpeter you aspire to if you do
your part as a student. You will be fortunate and blessed to have him as a teacher.None better.

"Bit of a first month update. Jeremy is better than expected (and this was a good expectation based on my son's first lesson). I played piano and yet I find none of that knowledge seems to lend itself to trumpet, plus I have no ear for the trumpet. David (my son) can hear himself with a bad buzz but it all sounds the same to me. But back to Jeremy, even though David has been playing Trumpet for a little over a year I had no idea how many basics he was never taught! And Jeremy picked right up on where his knowledge is lacking and they are already rocking through basics I thought David would have learned in Band or at least in Brass/Percussion class. So just really thrilled (both my and my son) that Jeremy quickly saw where David's knowledge was lacking and is already improving his confidence and ability in such a short time."

Matt Hull was my trumpet teacher for 2 years, before he moved to NYC. Matt is a fine teacher and a fine person.
