The flugelhorn is the brother of the trumpet and is a beautifully sounding instrument that can be used in many different situations.

Of course, the flugelhorn produces a very mellow and luscious tone, different to the trumpet's more majestic and powerful tamber. Although the trumpet can be played softly with a darker sound, the flugel can add a nice color contrast to a performance situation. Whether you need to play it in a big band setting, pit orchestra, or want to incorporate it into your own small group, becoming proficient on the flugelhorn can add a whole new dimension to your musical voice.

We will work on all aspects of technique and how to utilize the flugelhorn's pedal register. I'll assist you in developing your own sound concept, and provide exercises and practices that will strengthen your flugel chops and help you to develop a strong command of the instrument.

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.

Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

Great 1 st lesson. He was patient and supportive with the kids!
