The key to this instrument is its simplicity! Learn to have unlimited technique to play any style.

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 Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta
and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

I have had several lessons so far with Gregory and as an experienced trumpet player can recommend him extremely highly.
I am getting back into the trumpet following a gap after playing for 10 years when I was at high school. Gregory has really helped getting my technique and sound going again, I have been really pleased with my improvement. He has a great demeanour and has been great fun to work with. He is also an excellent player, and is highly reliable and easy to schedule with.

I've been teaching trumpet for 20 years and my students have gone on to the State level Band Auditions and won multiple times. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a decent sound, play scales, arpeggios and simple tunes, and as time goes on you'll be able to play popular tunes solo and with accompaniment of piano or band. I specialize in classical, jazz and klezmer style, typically use best published books, and have the renovated, quiet and spacious studio, music stands, audio equipment. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

· Clarinet · In studio
Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation.

My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction.

Incredibly amiable, professional, and talented as a teacher.

As a senior in high school now graduating and transferring into college, I started my lessons with Dimitry in December last year and had to end this summer at the end of the music school's program. Even though my time learning the saxophone was short, Dimitry used my past musical experience to help guide me through the instrument. His lessons did not feel long in any sense of the word, and in fact some two-hour lessons I took to make up missed weeks blew by, as I was constantly engaged by his teachings. During my studies with him I found myself in the presence of a true musician, and this was only further driven home when I saw him play in the Hanover Wind Symphony at the Morristown Community Theater with Stanley Drucker. I would highly recommend Dimitry as an instructor for a student at any level.

My son has started playing trumpet at school for 2 months. As he progresses very well and has the interest in trumpet, he needs a formal trumpet tutor to build the solid foundation and boost his skill. Luckily we find Jerry on takelessons. Jerry is very professional about teaching trumpet. He provides the material and shows the basic technique to my son. He sets up the daily practice routine. After 2 weeks, we notice that my son improves his sound production ans his skill!

We are so lucky to have found Jerry. He is professional, patient and makes my 12 year old's trumpet lessons enjoyable yet always challenging. Wit in just a few weeks of working with Jerry, my sons grades in band have gone up.

Hello! As a recent graduate of The Juilliard School, and the Yale School of Music, I have an advanced background in teaching and performing. I have extensive knowledge in both Classical and Jazz trumpet pedagogy and am willing to teach all levels of trumpet players. I have been performing on the trumpet since I was 10 years old and now pursue a freelance music career in New York City.

About Theodore
I was born and raised within the Cathedral precincts of Wells, England. Son of a counter-tenor, grandson of a church organist, I was exposed to music early on. After moving to the U.S., I started playing trumpet at age ten. Developing skills as both a jazz and classical player, my studies took me to Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan for the entirety of my high school studies. Here, I was under the musical direction of trumpet professor, Ken Larson, and jazz director, Bill Sears. A recent graduate of The Juilliard School, and The Yale School of Music, my primary teachers have been Raymond Mase, Mark Gould, and Allan Dean. While at Yale, I held the Jazz Studies teaching assistant position, which allowed me to work with undergraduate students 1-on-1, to help with their improvisation skills, and general musical capabilities. I have taught
students privately in Maine, New York, and Connecticut and I look forward to teaching more!

I have performed under the direction of notable conductors which include Michael Tilson Thomas, Alan Gilbert, and Marin Alsop. I have also shared the stage with jazz legends Peter Erskine, Bob Mintzer, and Wynton Marsalis. My travels have taken me to perform at such well known venues as Constitution Hall D.C., Tanglewood, MA, and Carnegie Hall, NY. In 2012 I was a finalist in the National Foundation for Advancment in the Arts YoungArts program. I also received a nomination to be a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. I was featured on Garrison Keillor's radio show "Prairie Home Companion" as a classical and jazz soloist in the summer of 2012.

For beginning students who are children, I typically start with my own method based on fundamental approach to trumpet playing, such as Arban, Maggio, Collin and Clark methods. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level

In 2001, I graduated from Russian Academy Of Music in Moscow with a Masters Of the Arts degree in Trumpet Performance.
