I will help you you build strong fundamentals and excellent habits. We will concentrate on your sound, tone, and pitch center. I will help you develop a daily routine that builds your skill set every time you play. I enjoy working with adult students and comeback players. I am more of a coach than a taskmaster. I am an active trumpeter and perform frequently with several ensembles.

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.

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.

As a professional brass musician, I have been teaching brass instruments for over twelve years.

For the beginner level, I have introduced many students to their first instrument ensuring that fundamentals are in place. At the intermediate level, I have helped many students advance in competitions and seat assignments within their band program. As a collegiate educator, I have given masterclasses at universities and private lessons to music performance students preparing for auditions and solo recitals.

I have taught online lessons for over four years and have used multiple online communication platforms to teach effective lessons. My students truly enjoy the online interaction during their lessons.

I have taught a wide variety of ages - everyone from 10 years old to 76 years old. One of the great joys I have in teaching is that each student brings their own unique strengths to lessons. My goal is to raise their level of playing while always having fun.

Excellent teacher. My son has been taking tuba lessons with Jeremy for more than 3 years. Jeremy is very accountable, considerate, and great with student. My son enjoyed his lessons.
Annette
My son has been taking trombome lessons with Jeremy for over a year and a half now. Jeremy provides great instruction, better than I could imagine in an online format. When my son is struggling with a new skill, Jeremy tries strategy after stratgy very patiently until he finds the technique that works. Jeremy puts in lots of extra time making recordings and selecting pieces for my son.

I first picked up the trumpet in the 4th grade. I’ve spent a lifetime learning the instrument, making a living playing it, teaching others to play it. Now I’d like to help you.

Hi I'm Rick and in your lesson you will learn:

The fundamentals of good trumpet playing. You will learn not just what to practice, but how to practice. I will help you with breathing and how to use your air effectively. You will learn how to develop a great sound - your sound. I will help you improve your range, flexibility, and endurance. You will develop new skills, build on your existing ones, learn new songs, and have more fun playing trumpet.

When we first meet, I will want to hear you play - just to see where your playing is at - and we’ll talk - do you have specific goals?, what do you want to learn? This will give us a good starting point.

I welcome students of all ages and abilities, from absolute beginner to aspiring professional. Schedule your lesson now. I offer a wide variety of booking ...

Rick is an outstanding trumpet player and teacher. Highly recommended...
John
I met Rick over 25 years ago when I moved to Honolulu while touring with Paul Anka. Rick and I became fast friends and played many jobs together ranging from classical to big band to Broadway to backing up the Temptations and Johnny Mathis. His wide range of experience across all styles of trumpet playing would be a huge asset to any student. His easygoing demeanor is a plus for being a great teacher.
Brien
After touring with Tom Jones for ten years, I moved to Hawaii, where I met Rick. Many times for many years, we would practice together. During those sessions, we would critique and discuss each others' playing. Rick was always very good at assessing what I was doing, and was consistently able to put into words what I needed to hear. We were in essence, giving each other lessons, and I gained a lot from Rick's expertise.
