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.

Bobby is a great teacher. He analyzes the needs of the student very well and he is very patient while correcting and guiding the student. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!
Atanas F.
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.

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

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

April Stace
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.

Mr Tom is Fantastic with my 6.5yr old. Patient, fun, relates well. Adjusts weekly to his skill and schedule (if we didn't get a practice in). Virtual works well...I had my doubts but it is good. Well planned and prepared.
Madisen
I had fun. I was only looking to have motivation to practice while I was waiting for my band to start playing together again. He showed relevant and new exercises. I learned new things and gained confidence to play louder. The pieces were fun and a little challenging. He's a good instructor.

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.

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!
Nolan
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!
