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

Gregory is a great teacher. He makes it fun and breaks it all down really well. Greg is a real pleasure to learn with!
Gil R.
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.

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.

About J.Q.

I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I studied Mandarin Chinese at Oberlin College (Bachelors, '02). I lived and worked in Shanghai, China, from 2003 to 2010. I've been teaching music and language lessons for over 15

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.

Super friendly, wise, and incredible at working on what you want to work on. I personally have grown so much as a trumpet player and musician in general since starting my lessons with him. Couldn't recommend a better teacher!

Jerry is very professional and nice! My son is 7 years old and he is a beginner. He told me he wanted to learn trumpet last year because he read a book. I feel lucky to have found Jerry. My son likes the trumpet class and looks forward to having the class every week. And I can see his progress.

Testu was an excellent teacher. He was patient, kind, encouraging and very knowledgeable. He helped me to prepare for auditions, develop a practice routine and find more enjoyment in playing!
Mika
I have known Tetsuya for many years now having gone to high school with him. It was incredibly inspiring to watch him not only perform, but also teach my brother trumpet as well. He was an incredibly patient and kind teacher and helped my brother improve not only on his technical skills and passion for music, but also his confidence in his abilities to play the instrument. He is a kind-hearted, compassionate and patient person and this translates into his music and his teaching.
Tomo
Tetsuya is not only a talented musician, as many people already know, but he is also an incredibly kind and patient teacher. He taught my son not only about technique and musicianship but also the love and fun that can be had through music. He knew the level that my son was at and guided him through his learning and this allowed my son to continuously improve. My son was incredibly luckily to have Tetsuya as his first teacher.

Rachel
Hollyn is a gifted and enthusiastic teacher -- I highly recommend her! She quickly built a good rapport with my 12 year old, who had been struggling with her instrument during remote learning, and we started to hear improvement in her playing right away. We also appreciated Hollyn's great communication skills and flexibility. She is by far the best music teacher we've worked with!
Ann Marie
I have seen Hollyn teach students from age 4 to 22. She is unfailingly respectful and always has the student's best interest in mind. She takes a holistic approach and does identifies mental AND physical issues that may need corrected for optimal achievement to occur, and then she helps the student fix them in a positive and productive way. She is particularly skilled with dealing with performing anxiety or physical pain while playing and will soon help the student overcome any such problems. She has a great personality and sense of humor and the lessons are never boring, never repetitive. She has a great training in both musicianship/performance and pedagogy.
Daisy Schudmak
Hollyn is a fantastic instructor. I’m always so impressed with the variety of exercises she walks my son through in a 30 minute lesson. She includes ear training, sight reading, the mastery of scales, and practicing a new piece of music all in one lesson. She is extremely patient and kind and gently helps my son through frustrating moments when his abilities are being stretched and strengthened. My son now has about 8 polished songs to play for friends and family and I could not possibly be more pleased.

"Bobby has a great talent for breaking down complicated music theory concepts and explaining precisely why they are important to your progression with the instrument. I started taking lessons with him after having taken a ten-year hiatus from the trumpet. During the first lesson, he was immediately able to identify where my abilities had eroded and gave me exercises to improve my technical skills. He also to helped me improve my sheet music reading skills, even transcribing some of my favorite songs into sheet music that I could memorize. I would highly recommend Bobby as an instructor. His enthusiasm for music and teaching is infectious!"
