The key to this instrument is its simplicity! Learn to have unlimited technique to play any style.

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 Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta
and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

I have had several lessons so far with Gregory and as an experienced trumpet player can recommend him extremely highly.
I am getting back into the trumpet following a gap after playing for 10 years when I was at high school. Gregory has really helped getting my technique and sound going again, I have been really pleased with my improvement. He has a great demeanour and has been great fun to work with. He is also an excellent player, and is highly reliable and easy to schedule with.

I currently teach trumpet at the New School for Leadership and the Arts, but I have many years' experience teaching music to students of all ages. I teach to the abilities, passions, and ambitions of the student(s).

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Brooklyn, NY

View Full Profile

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 and recording on slide trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, and french horn. I write and arrange music for my own groups and regularly write and record horn arrangements for folk, pop, and reggae groups. I have attended Berklee College of Music and Ithaca College, and I have a Master's degree in jazz trumpet performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.

I have over nine years of experience working with students ages 7 to adult. I have worked both from my home studio and though several public and community music school program
s including the Hudson Arts Alliance in Hudson, MA, the Kittredge Elementary School in North Andover, MA, and the Performing Arts Center of Metro West in Framingham, MA. I have studied jazz performance with trumpet greats John McNeil and Walter White, improvisation with jazz gurus David Schumacher and Jerry Bergonzi, and George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization with master composer and theorist Ben Schwendener.

As an educator, my aim is to inspire in my students an enthusiasm for the artistic performance of music of any style. I strive to convey my own excitement for the art to young trumpeters and improvisers, and I have worked to encourage self-motivation and a longstanding interest in musical self-expression in elementary through high school students and adults. I have experience performing many styles of music from jazz and experimental improvised music to funk, reggae, and afro-beat, and I use my knowledge of divergent genres to encourage creative experimentation and convey the expressive artistic elements shared by all music. As an improviser I am particularly interested in teaching the theory and philosophy of spontaneous composition and musical communication.

My 11 yo son has been taking trumpet lessons with Bobby for about half a year now. We are so glad to have found Bobby, as he is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. He is always timely and thorough with his lessons. Bobby finds music pieces which are just challenging enough for my son, and my son seems to enjoy his time with Bobby. I also like his balance between teaching music theory and instrument instruction. Bobby explains concepts clearly, and relates well to my son, with a sense of humor and patience. My son has clearly improved in just a few months, and we cannot be happier!

Online Special ! 15 minutes extra time for students who book online at no extra cost.
//clinician, professional trumpet player & maker// Over the past 26 years I developed my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way.

The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier.

I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes.

If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less.

I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.).

Playing the trumpet is one of the greatest joys of my life and I want to share that joy with you. Whether you are to getting ready for a college audition, picking up the horn for again after putting it down fifteen years ago, or want to play better in high school band class, I am happy to help you. I cater my lessons based on the needs and goals of each student, so you can get the most out of each time we meet.

About Rafael
I have been playing trumpet professionally in New York City since 2013 when I moved to the city from Boulder, Colorado to study jazz at the New School University, where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with academic honors. I have had the honor to play with some truly world-class musicians, from Afro-Cuban big band gigs with Bobby Sanabria to small group hot jazz with Jon-Erik Kellso. I have experience playing in many different kinds of musical styles - classical chamber music, pit orchestras, bebop, New Orleans second line brass band, big band jazz, R&B, Brazilian Forro, Cuban conjunto, classical orchestra, rock, small group swing, pop, Dominican merengue, Puerto Rican bomba - and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I am also a composer and arranger, specializing in big band jazz, and I am a member of the BMI Jazz Co
mposers Workshop.

During my time at New School University, I had the opportunity to study with some truly world-class trumpet players during my time there - Jimmy Owens, Lew Soloff, Brad Goode, and John McNeil. Their guidance not only helped me become a better trumpeter and musician, but shaped the way I teach my students.

My job as your teacher is to enable your exploration and discovery. I'll provide you with the tools - understanding of how the trumpet works, understanding of the mechanics the body must utilize in order to play, how to practice - and then together we will discover the right way to apply those tools to your playing.

Rafael is a very dedicated teacher, who is an excellent musician with outstanding ears and a passion for the subject. I particularly appreciate how he skirts the worlds of jazz and classical music, and relates to both. He has ideas of what he wants to get across in each lesson, yet also listens and responds to students feedback. I certainly recommend Rafael as a teacher!

When I began trumpet lessons with Rafael I had zero experience on a brass instrument. He started out teaching me the basic fingerings on the horn, but before I knew it he had me learning traditional New Orleans second line music as well as some more contemporary brass band tunes. After just a few lessons with Rafael I succeeded in securing myself a spot in an audition-only, collegiate-level ensemble dedicated to playing this style of music. Rafael is fantastic teacher and pleasure to learn from. If you are looking to improve you playing and have loads of fun at the same time, Rafael is definitely the teacher for you!

Hello! As a recent graduate of The Juilliard School, and the Yale School of Music, I have an advanced background in teaching and performing. I have extensive knowledge in both Classical and Jazz trumpet pedagogy and am willing to teach all levels of trumpet players. I have been performing on the trumpet since I was 10 years old and now pursue a freelance music career in New York City.

About Theodore
I was born and raised within the Cathedral precincts of Wells, England. Son of a counter-tenor, grandson of a church organist, I was exposed to music early on. After moving to the U.S., I started playing trumpet at age ten. Developing skills as both a jazz and classical player, my studies took me to Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan for the entirety of my high school studies. Here, I was under the musical direction of trumpet professor, Ken Larson, and jazz director, Bill Sears. A recent graduate of The Juilliard School, and The Yale School of Music, my primary teachers have been Raymond Mase, Mark Gould, and Allan Dean. While at Yale, I held the Jazz Studies teaching assistant position, which allowed me to work with undergraduate students 1-on-1, to help with their improvisation skills, and general musical capabilities. I have taught
students privately in Maine, New York, and Connecticut and I look forward to teaching more!

I have performed under the direction of notable conductors which include Michael Tilson Thomas, Alan Gilbert, and Marin Alsop. I have also shared the stage with jazz legends Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, and Wynton Marsalis. My travels have taken me to perform at such well known venues as Constitution Hall D.C., Tanglewood, MA, and Carnegie Hall, NY. In 2012 I was a finalist in the National Foundation for Advancment in the Arts YoungArts program. I also received a nomination to be a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. I was featured on Garrison Keillor's radio show "Prairie Home Companion" as a classical and jazz soloist in the summer of 2012.

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.

Besides teaching instrument playing techniques, music theory, and improvising, 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 your music skills.

About J.Q.
I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I've been teaching for over ten years and love to help musicians grow. My experience is in all kinds of jazz as well as Cuban music, flamenco, funk and pop music.
