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.

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

Bobby has been a great teacher. I am in my 30s, trumpet beginner and with very limited time due to busy work schedule.Despite those limitations, Bobby has managed to keep every lesson interesting and challenging by mixing music theory, drills, and popular tunes fitted to my personal taste in music. I feel I am making steady progress.

Trumpet was my first instrument. Euphonium was my major instrument in college. I play tuba professionally today I started playing gigs when I was 12 years old, and never stopped. I will write exercises to help you succeed!

I took trumpet and music theory lessons from Mr Talley He has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I highly recommend him and look forward to my next lesson from him.
Derrek
My brother took lessons from Mr. Talley before me, and when I got into Band I started too.  Thanks to Mr. Talley I  made 1st chair in the Region Band twice on Tuba.  When I switched to Euphonium in high school, he was right there helping me with the change from Tuba.  I made the Region Band again on a new instrument only a few weeks after I switched, and he was the reason why.  He always seemed to know exactly what I needed to do to get better.  Even now, years later, I can still call him any time and ask him about music and he always helps me.
Derrek
My mom made me take lessons from Mr. Talley when I was a little kid because my brothers loved him so much.  I thought he was kind of crazy at first, but when I started doing the things he said I got WAY better.  Now I can see what he was doing – he just knew EVERYTHING about trombone, so I got really good.  Even though I don’t play in band any more since I graduated high school, I still sometimes get my instrument out and play for fun.  I always hear his crazy sayings in my head, which makes me enjoy it.  You should sign up – my mom always said he was worth every penny because he helped her raise us into good people.  I didn’t get that when I was a kid, but I understand now.  He taught me more than music – he taught me how to think smarter.

Online Trumpet Teacher

I have been teaching trumpet lessons now for 25 years. I have been involved in some professional playing in the past and on numerous recordings. I enjoy watching students learn and actually make progress in their playing as they listen to a teacher's advice. I focus on breathing, sound, and technique, which are the building blocks of a successful trumpet player. I do teach primarily from a classical perspective and do not perform or teach jazz playing. However, the technique I teach is helpful for all areas of playing. I would love to help you learn how to play better!

I have had an exciting time learning the trumpet! Growing up I always enjoyed music and especially playing the trumpet, but I was always a mediocre and unreliable player. In between my junior and senior years of high school I went through the difficulty of an embouchure change. Though I struggled f

"Ruben is a very passionate trumpet player who’s plays and teaches from the heart. He’s a very patient and enthusiastic teacher who believes in his students. I was impressed with his philosophy that each student has a “trumpet voice” within them that he can help them find. It made a lot of sense to me and has inspired me. Thanks for all you do Ruben!"

"Trumpet Lessons

My son wants to play trumpet in the jazz band at school so he asked for lessons over the summer. I’m so glad we found Jordan. He welcomed us right in and worked so well from that first moment. My son is a bit shy, so I’m so grateful that he found learning from Jordan so easy. In fact, every time he came out of a lesson, he asked for more lessons! The feedback from Jordan has been nicely detailed so we know where he is improving, where to focus his practice sessions (and reminding him to practice), and giving suggestions of music to listen to, to make him notice that the learning isn’t just practicing, but listening as well. Jordan clearly knows and practices what he teaches. My son also mentioned that he really appreciates the times when Jordan plays along with him during the practice. Thanks Jordan!"

"Bill is a fantastic teacher, and has been extremely helpful in coaching me for orchestral auditions, and in working with me on solo repertoire. He has helped me improve my overall trumpet-playing, and is always coming up with new exercises ways to think about practicing technique, especially relating to sound concept and efficient playing. He has presented many different solutions and approaches to tackle any issues I've had with my playing depending on what I'm working on, ranging from articulation to expanding my high range, and everything in between. He sets a great example with his excellent playing as well, and it is useful to hear his musical ideas on the pieces and excerpts that we work on. I would highly recommend getting a lesson with Bill!"

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.
