Private Trumpet Teacher

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!

Excellent instructor!

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.

//clinician, professional trumpet player & maker// Over the past 26 years I developed my own technique and teaching methodology how to play brass instruments the most efficient way.

The lip is the sound source which creates a standing airwave within the instrument and the trumpet functions as a filter and amplifier.

I also developed a special tongue technique which requires less movement when phrasing notes ( single, double and triple tongue) and therefore is faster, requires less effort, is very versatile, usable in any style of music and is much more accurate in hitting the notes.

If you understand these two aspects and are able to implement them you perform better with practicing less.

I cover all aspects of trumpet playing ( technique, breathing, posture, embochoure, equipment, phrasing, sight reading, improvisation, high range, endurance, sound quality, repertoire etc.).

I'm ...

John
With Mr. Hackl, you get not only world-class training and experience, but also access to the best equipment and technological skill!

Franz is a master musician.
As a teacher he is able to take the student from their level of playing and introduce them to new concepts on the instrument, thus raising their musicianship to much higher levels.

I highly recommend studying with Franz.

Private Trumpet Teacher

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.

About Bobby

I am a jazz trumpeter, improviser, and composer as well as an avid listener and enthusiastic educator. I maintain an active performance schedule playing improvised music as well as funk, soul, afro-beat, reggae, hip-hop, and American folk music. In addition to trumpet, I have experience performing

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.

I teach all levels of trumpet with a completely custom lesson plan designed for each student. Trumpet playing should be fun and as effortless as possible!

We will cover:
How to play trumpet (tone, range, articulation)
How to read music
Techniques for better sightreading
Body use (how a relaxed body can lead to better playing)
Music Theory (how does music work and how can I use this knowledge to my advantage?)
Mental aspects of music (overcoming stage fright, preparing for a performance)
All styles are covered from jazz to classical and everything in between.

About Mike

Everyone is different so the way I approach teaching trumpet is different for everyone! The goal, however, is the same. To be great trumpet players and have fun doing it. I'm here to teach anyone and everyone how they can truly enjoy and immerse themselves in music through the trumpet.

My son has taken lessons from Michael for a year and a half and is in 7th grade. As an advocate for children's music development, I am so grateful our son has taken lessons with Michael. My son is highly motivated to play and takes such joy in playing, and this is in large part, thanks to Michael. What i particularly appreciate is his wholistic approach. They work on understanding how the instrument fits with arrangements and other instruments. They work on site reading, ear training, music theory, tone, and a variety of styles of music. He is patient and constructive. Best teacher if you are serious about trumpet.
Rita
Mike has been a fantastic trumpet teacher for my son. My son started with him over two years ago, and we've kept the lessons going online during COVID. Mike is friendly and very easy to work with. He has helped to engage my son in trumpet by having him listen to jazz and classical recordings and try to recreate phrases that he likes, by encouraging him to really listen and sing the pieces that they are working on, and by working with him on his school band music. I appreciate the ease of communicating and scheduling with Mike, and my son loves to chat about sports with him before the lessons start. I really value all of the hard work that Mike has put into teaching and encouraging my son to love music. I enthusiastically recommend him as a teacher.

Jaden has been such a great teacher for our son. He’s super patient and takes my sons desires into consideration. If my son says he wants to learn a specific thing then Jaden has been super obliging. He even helped show us how to clean the trumpet in the tub one day. He was able to work out coming to our home to teach and has been flexible when our schedules change.

Jaden is a great teacher! He’s very talented and has a great way connecting with his students. He has a lot of enthusiasm about playing the trumpet that is contagious to his students.

"As an adult learner who plays multiple instruments, I’ve had every type of teacher you can imagine. It’s always a struggle to find a teacher able to work with the unique requirements of being an adult with adult obligations and time constraints.

Tom, as it turns out, is that rare teacher able to not just handle these unique requirements, but is also fantastic at finding and focusing on knowledge gaps, whether it be playing, theory, tone, or anything else I throw at him.

Prior to taking lessons with Tom, I had barely held a trumpet, and I’m progressing at a rate far faster than I had imagined I would.

So don’t bother looking elsewhere, Tom is who you need!"

"Caleb has been teaching my son trumpet for the past 4 years. He is a very talented teacher who is musically gifted, as well as patient and kind.

Loving music and playing trumpet has enriched my son's life, both socially and emotionally. He is currently first chair in his middle school band and plans to pursue band in high school. His pleasure in playing with his peers and his pride in his accomplishments are wonderful to see. Last year, he played "New York, New York" as part of a three piece band at a school event and in March 2017, he will play the entire score of the Lion King with the pit orchestra for the 8th grade play.

But the best part as a parent is seeing that he often walks around the house humming a random tune under his breath, even when he isn't aware of it. It makes me smile to see him be so happy!

Thank you, Caleb!"

"I wasn't sure how trumpet lessons would go online as it seems like it would be one of the harder things to teach at a distance. But the first lesson with my middle son went great! David (my son) took to Jeremy pretty quickly, which is a great sign as David doesn't really like "new" people. But he left his lesson excited about what they would be doing the following week.

I also wanted to mention Jeremy's follow up with me was cool in that he recommended a book for David and went the extra step to link it to both Amazon and a local music store to be sure I easily found the correct book. It's the little things like that that show tutors that care about going the extra step to make everything go smoothly."
