Private Trumpet Teacher

Have you hit a roadblock in your trumpet playing? Is your child not seeing progress from playing in their school band? Need help with your All-State audition? Picking up a hobby for the quarantine? Look no further!

My approach to the trumpet is one that starts with the sound of the music playing in my head. Once I can get you to hear beautiful trumpet sounds playing in your own head, you will find that playing the trumpet is as easy as blowing spit wads through a straw!

My students get a weekly dose of fundamentals that include long tones, flexibility, and articulation. Once those are in place, we can apply those skills learned to a musical etude. You can expect to cover as much material (or as little) as you want in a given week; I will pace your lessons according to your ability level and desire. But with the right amount of deliberate practice, I can help you become a truly great trumpeter.

Let's get this fired up!

Keagan W.
Ruben is a very passionate trumpet player who’s plays and teaches from the heart. He’s a very patient and enthusiastic teacher who believes in his students. I was impressed with his philosophy that each student has a “trumpet voice” within them that he can help them find. It made a lot of sense to me and has inspired me. Thanks for all you do Ruben!
Hayden H.
Hayden really enjoyed his first lesson with Ruben. Ruben was skilled at making it work in an online format. My son is a bit shy, but Ruben is friendly and very encouraging.

Private Trumpet Teacher

I graduated with a degree in music performance in 2019, and have over 13 years of playing experience and 5 years of teaching experience (ranging from student as young as 5 years old). Outside of music, I am a medical student (M.D.). I enjoy using music as an outlet and teach trumpet lessons because it is my passion!

As a teacher, my goal is to help not only facilitate musical interpretation and technical skills on the trumpet but also help foster a student's life-long love for music. I believe that students should not only progress technically but foster a sense of who they are as performers, regardless of their level.

As a performer, I have played in symphony orchestras, in the pit for musicals such as Pippin, Into the Woods, and The Music Man, and private gigs. I've received training in performance anxiety and overcoming fear of public performance and would be happy to discuss techniques.

About Moriah

I offer individualized lessons and am passionate about helping students' achieve their goals!. I try to provide affordable lesson prices so that financial concerns never inhibit students' ability to progress and reach their potential! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Marcello S.
Amazing teacher who was patient and kind with a 13 year old who decided to learn an instrument without the benefit of a band class in middle school. I am very impressed with the tools she introduced him to, the lessons she laid out for him to accomplish on his own and how she left him motivated to get started right away on practicing.

My son just began online trumpet lessons with Jennifer. She gives great explanations and models the way to play the piece. My son is excited about trumpet again!

"I've had David as a trumpet teacher for four years. He is one of the best trumpet players I've ever met, and he has taught me a lot. I started off as a beginner trumpet player, and he has helped me grow so much as a trumpet player and as a musician. He has a lot to teach about trumpet techniques, music theory and improvisation. He is also a very enjoyable person to talk to, and i always look forwards to our lessons."

"My jazz instructor in High School led me to Bobby three years ago. He taught me a lot of things about playing the trumpet and greatly increased my ability as a trumpet player. He is very, and inspired me to want to get better at playing through encouragement and his high quality playing. Every lesson is very personal and fun. I know that sounds cheesy, but I looked forward to every lesson I had with Bobby. Bobby is a very skilled player, and unlike many great players, he can teach just as well as he can play. Bobby and I also spent a lot of time talking about Jazz theory. I am now fairly knowledgeable about theory, one of the best in my school, and I learned it all from Bobby. If you take lessons with Bobby your trumpet skills will vastly improve, and if you want to learn jazz, Bobby teaches jazz theory as well as he teaches trumpet, if not better. The last thing I have to say is something that Bobby told me at our very first lesson, "we will both learn from each other, you will learn trumpet and jazz skills, and I will learn how to effectively teach you." Every lesson with Bobby is extremely personal, and he is constantly improving his already great teaching skills."

Not only is he a very talented trumpet player, but he was very reliable and answered all the questions I or anyone else in the section had in an efficient and timely manner. Overall, Andrew would be a great teacher as he is very helpful and is good at what he does."

We started out with basics it was very boring at first but then we started getting into more advanced stuff. Ruben is a fantastic tutor hands down. He is super nice, understanding, and very helpful. Both me and my family have noticed a Dramatic difference in my playing and sound quality. If anyone is looking for someone to help them pick Ruben."
