Private Trumpet Teacher

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

About Pablo

With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment w

This was my first experience with on line teaching and it was great. I had tried reading the books and watching some videos on You Tube and was not making progress. Just a few minutes with Paul and what I couldn't figure out suddenly made sense.

Looking forward to next week.
Jacob
My son loves his lessons, he gets really nervous prior because he always wants to get it right however, he likes the fact he’s at home and no one is watching him as he’s learning! As his parents we like that as a military family that will be moving again this is something that we can keep normal for him since it’s done online as well! Paul Neatherly is wonderful with him as well and very patient! I recommend this service and Paul to anyone looking for this type of learning!

Online Trumpet Teacher

Phil Norris has been teaching trumpet since 1983. He teaches the physical side of the trumpet as well as the musical side. The trumpet, being one of the most physically grueling instruments, demands this. He gives a customized routine for the student to do at home and he also helps with those who are having embouchure problems, whether they’ve developed a bad habit or have had to deal with braces.
On the musical side, Phil teaches jazz improv, big band lead, how to play in a rock horn section, and even classical style. Of course reading music and helping with the student’s school material is also focused on.

About Phil

*** Specialties *** I specialize in embouchure development and the physical side of playing a trumpet first. Of course I teach music too and help with a students' school band music,etc.

My son has been a trumpet student with Phil Norris for the past 3 years. I am very pleased with the instruction. Phil continues to work with Alex to improve his embouchure through various lip exercises and slurs. Also, works on diaphragm strength through various exercise. Alex is one of the top trumpet players at his school as a freshman. His range and tone has dramatically improved since working with Phil. Phil is fun and engaging as well. I highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for a competent and skilled music instructor.
Greg
I took lessons from Phil for 3 years
and played alongside him on a few gigs. Phil is the real deal. He can scream high notes, low notes, and everything in between. He can help you get results.
Gary
I have been taking lessons from Phil for almost two years. He is very patient making the student feel comfortable. He is not harshly critical. Just gives good feedback. He is a master of appropriately challenging the student. At times he will play along with me which I find helpful. If I miss a lesson he gives me make up lessons. His rates are more than fair. I highly recommend Phil for trumpet instruction.

Online Trumpet Teacher

Trumpet lessons are all inclusive!

Lessons are broken down into multiple areas that guide you through all aspects of how to play trumpet.

1. Recommended Listening - Let's find what you like to listen to, and let's explore similar and unsimilar music. Exposure is the key to learning.
2. Let's learn how brass instruments work. Trumpeters have to learn how to use their air, lips, and musicality as a way to make the trumpet easy to play... Think of this as the pushups and situps of the trumpet. We have to do them in order to make the instrument playable.
3. Let's learn how music works - Music Theory lets us understand music. This is like learning the alphabet. Once you learn the alphabet, we can learn to spell, write, and read. Once you understand music theory, music becomes much more organized and easier to understand.
4. Let's learn the music you want to learn, and use the music you like to give you assignments that will help you learn appropriately.

My son started taking lessons a year ago, Nick used his strengths to help him learn. He has become inspired with the trumpet, and started to play a little every day.
Jose
I am taking online lessons with Nick, and he has helped me to understand what it is to be a musician. Before I started taking lessons, if someone asked me to play something, I was not able to do it without getting a sheet of music out and struggling A LOT. Now I am starting to be able to play the music I want to play, both by ear and reading. He teaches much more than just playing band music. I wish I could take more than a few lessons this summer.
Vaishnavi
I have a 8 year old daughter and 10 year old son both have been learning Piano for the last 2 years. Nick takes a holistic approach in teaching piano as opposed to sticking with the book. It includes creating a passion about listening different music, learning scales and chords outside of the book. I have recommended Nick to all my friends

"Caleb has been my son’s trumpet instructor for almost 6 months now. He has a keen ability to get across everything needed for a highly effective online lesson. I cannot tell you what a HUGE convenience it's been for us to have these expert lessons in the comfort and convenience of our home. I would have to drive 45 minutes over a mountain pass to get to the nearest qualified instructor. In the middle of snowstorms, and even with my son in p.j.'s, we can have our lesson right here at home. In an ordinary lesson environment a parent usually is expected to leave the room. With Caleb, I can be nearby while my son receives his lesson. This is helpful for me to reinforce points that Caleb made during his lesson with my son when he is practicing during the week. Currently he's working with my son on his honor jazz band audition, as well as a classical oratorio piece that he'll be playing on tour in Europe with our local community orchestra. Caleb is qualified to teach any style of music. He’s super friendly but never loses his honesty with the student. We often have special requests for each lesson and Caleb is able to tailor each lesson to work on the new pieces and still fit in valuable instruction with scales and solid technique. Not only is Caleb a great teacher, but he is on many professional recordings, and is a regularly-working professional musician in Chicago. My son is very lucky to have him as an instructor. We're very impressed with Caleb and know you will be too!"

"Caleb was recommended to me by friends when my son inquired about trumpet lessons to augment the lessons he was receiving at his school. My son is 11 years old. Caleb has been instrumental in making my son have a ton more confidence in his trumpet playing skills and has taught my son to become a better player. My son's school band was not a good fit for him so he left, but he insisted on continuing with lessons with Caleb. Now my son is able to take his trumpet experience with his "rock band" shows.

Caleb is patient, well versed in music, and is incredibly talented. We take weekly lessons with Caleb and have been very happy with his teaching style and my son's ability to become a better trumpet player.

I HIGHLY recommend Caleb for trumpet lessons for any age!"

"With over 25 years of experience as an elementary school band director, Vincent works well with students of all ages from beginners to professional levels. I studied Jazz improv with Vincent for many years. He has a vast knowledge of music theory (melodic and harmonic concepts).

Vincent is one of the top Jazz Trumpeter’s in the world. He is a virtuoso Jazz soloist and a very strong lead Trumpeter as well. He is also well versed in the world of classical music. Vincent toured worldwide with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra, Buddy Rich Big Band, and Horace Silver. Vincent is currently touring with Renaissance (a progressive rock band), and frequently plays in horn sections for a multitude of rock bands. He is one of the most consistent and reliable musicians I’ve ever known.

Vincent is a very reputable musician with a great sense of humor. He plays with so many different bands and always bringing his incredible playing level to every gig. Vincent has recorded and produced several of his own CDs as a leader, and has performed on many recordings for several decades. With this vast background Vincent, he is able to teach various genres (jazz improvisation, rock, classical, and Brazilian concepts).

I strongly recommend Vincent as an instructor for “Take Lessons”. Don’t miss this opportunity to study with this incredible musician!
