Very good teacher! I was stuck for years, now I'm seeing the light.

Alex is a well-prepared, patient, and encouraging instructor. As a beginning trumpet student, I was self-conscious about my ability but Alex has helped me feel comfortable not only as a trumpet player, but as a musician. I would highly recommend working with him!

Chris’s trumpet pedagogical practices are derived from multiple sources. For his beginner students, he utilizes “Essential Elements for Band” from Hal Leonard to create a solid foundation of sound pedagogy and engaging music to start their musical adventure. “Essential Elements” features both familiar songs and specific exercises to focus the student on the unique characteristics and unique sounds of their instrument. After the student reaches an intermediate level, Chris implements method books by Arban, Clarke, and Irons into the practice routine to further improve technical facility and be able to perform more challenging and advanced pieces. For those students interested in learning how to play jazz, Sporer supplies them with ear-training techniques, sheet music of jazz standards, and listening material for reference. He also demonstrates characteristics of this type of music including musical patterns that can be applied over common harmonic sequences and landmark solos for ...

Due to COVID, my son was unable to start traditional in person trumpet lessons. We decided to try virtual lessons to get him started and it's been one of the best decisions we've made! David is knowledgeable on music theory and takes the time to make sure our son understands concepts such as rhythm & pitch. We've seen a great deal of improvement over the past year.

Vivian makes learning the clarinet fun and I look forward to every lesson. She has already taught me new notes and songs after just five lessons. She was also open to incorporating music from my favorite movies (Harry Potter) into my lesson plans. The music is more advanced for me and so I really appreciate Vivian’s patience and her demonstrations so I know exactly what to play for each song. I’m glad to have Vivian as my teacher.
Carolyn
My 12 year old son has been taking clarinet lessons with Vivian for almost two months. At his first lesson he could barely play one note. I've been so impressed with his improvement every week. My son says, "she's very helpful and understanding." We highly recommend!

"William is probably one of the only players that I've seen understand the ins and outs of trumpet playing at his age. He really helped me out early into high school and has continued to inspire me in trumpet playing. While taking a lesson he evaluates every aspect of playing and gives lots of instruction that applies to much of trumpet playing. The inspiration he gives is the most essential trait he shares with students. William is a positive influence and an amazing teacher!"

"Jennifer is an excellent instructor. She came to our home and worked with my middle school son on trumpet. My son was struggling with his technique and was frustrated with the school band program. Jennifer's teaching style is one of positive encouragement and incredible patience. She took the extra time to find music of interest to my son to enhance and make the lessons fun, especially due to his frustration with some of the more boring pieces of music assigned through the school. I highly recommend Jennifer!"
