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.

With an emphasis on jazz and improvisation, my goal is to provide insight along your musical path. Here some of the topics we may explore:

Trumpet technique - We'll build custom exercises, some focusing on your strengths, others challenging the edge of your abilities. Rather than looking at practice as "warming up", we'll shift our mindset to "trumpet calisthenics" (inspired by Laurie Frink).

Jazz - We'll define jazz chords and learn how to play the notes in (and around!) them. We'll find melodies to flow from one chord to the next. We'll also discuss forms and listen to rich recordings of the jazz masters.

Free Playing - This is when we can let go of the analytic mind and simply make sound. We can direct our attention to non harmonic concepts like emotions, shapes, textures, and images. Sometimes I'll put a drone on during this segment or we'll play call and response ideas.

Tom is an amazing teacher, so gentle, patient and kind with our shy 12 year old. Tom was great in engaging him and we feel very good about their relationship already after the first lesson. He seems to know right away how to tailor the lesson based on where our son is at. He has already made improvements in his first class. We look forward to future lessons with Tom.

Chris is a fantastic instructor! Not only did he work with our son to teach him the basics (as someone new to an instrument having never played before), he also motivated him and took a genuine interest in his progress. He does a fantastic job and is a skilled instructor!... and did it all on-line due to COVID and overcame that obstacle too!
Leanne
Chris has been great with my middle school band student teaching/coaching the fundamentals and making trumpet fun again. My kiddo looked forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys band again! His confidence level while playing has soared. Definitely recommend.

Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.

"Mr. Denton was a fantastic teacher! We worked on articulations and phrasing in the first movement of the Halsey Stevens Sonata and he was able to bring a lot more out of me musically than I thought I was capable of. He made excellent use of the 30 minute online lesson and I came away feeling more confidant as I approach my recital."

"I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman"

"Wade helped me find my sound in not only music but also my life. He gets to know each and everyone of his students on a personal level and tailors their lessons to fit their goals and needs. I entered his lessons at a beginner level on trumpet and over the next two semester, I was able to work my sound quality up to several years of experience within a short period of time. He is someone who has worked in both the field of education and the music business. With his knowledge he was able advised me through my music, business ventures, and life goals. Out of all of the instructors I have taken lessons through, Wade has been the only one to find a way to teach the material while impacting and interacting with today's way and age of learning. He uses music, books, audio, and media to help suit all ways of learning. I have and still recommend his work today to anyone who is interested in learning music and pursuing the arts."
