Have you ever had the chills listening to your favorite song? Have you ever wanted to write music that meant something to you? In my lessons, I work with my students, no matter their pre-existing background knowledge, to understand their own heart-music, and how to make music that communicates their own thoughts more effectively. I have experience working with musical ensembles of many different shapes and sizes, as well as the study of the anthropological meaning of music and art in general. In taking lessons, I hope all of my students grow to become better musicians and more thoughtful people, learning not only about music, but their own perception of music.

About Jeffrey Zane

As an ethnomusicologist/world arts researcher and an award-winning composer whose music has been described as "what Renaissance composers would have written if they had heard gospel music," I enjoy being known for music that draws from many sources, is intellectually rigorous, and is pleasant to the

I believe that a beautiful sound is the most important thing. Rather than telling you how to get a great sound, I will demonstrate by playing everything back and forth with you. Learning a musical skill is accomplished through trial and error, thus we need to make mistakes in order to improve. I encourage my students not to be afraid of making mistakes. Perfection is not the target - a beautiful sound is the ultimate goal.

About Larry

Hi! My name is Larry, and I really enjoy playing and teaching trumpet. The trumpet has literally taken me around the world playing for over ten years on various cruise lines, visiting beautiful places in Europe, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, and North/South America. Since leaving the cruise industry,

I have been taking lessons with Larry for about two years and I have improved immensely. Larry is very supportive and gives great feedback, he makes the lessons fun and educational. He will let you figure things out on your own but also give helpful instructions to lead you on your way to success. Larry is the reason I went from not being able to play the trumpet to two years later playing a level 4 trumpet NYSSMA solo and getting a 25 out of 28. Taking lessons from Larry was the best thing I could have done to get better at playing the trumpet.
Ginny
Our daughter loves taking lessons from Larry. He has helped her improve her trumpet skills. She is a beginner, and he is very patient and knowledgeable about what she needs to develop into a great musician. Larry is always available and prompt with his lesson times but is also flexible with his schedule for us when needed.
Sarah
I like lessons with Larry. He is patient, and always finds something positive. Trumpet is easier now, and a lot more fun!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career."
