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.

The trumpet is one of the most demanding yet rewarding instruments. A dominant voice in classical and jazz; the trumpet can be a section or solo instrument.

Vince began playing trumpet in 1998. He attended lessons at elementary school. Vince soon won principle chair in school ensembles; later with select county and state wide ensembles. He competed in annual solo competitions performing classical and jazz trumpet throughout middle and high school.

In 2003, Vince began studying trumpet privately with Mark Klose; later with John Maguda. Vince primarily studied from methods including Arban's Complete Conservatory Method, Schlossberg's Daily Drills and Technical Studies, Clarke's Technical Studies, and Stamp's Warm-Ups & Studies. Vince also studied classical solo repertoire by by Hindemith, Haydn, and Kennan among others.

While cultivating classical foundation, Vince developed jazz chops by listening, transcribing, and studying many jazz greats including Louis Armstrong, ...

My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

The most successful musicians are the ones who tell a story through making music. The secret to this success is a commitment to constant improvement and cultivating a strong musical voice. These are the cornerstones of my experience teaching and performing music. Throughout high school, college, and even beyond, I’ve sought out opportunities to share music and connect with audiences regardless of where I am. I believe music is something deeply personal and a gift that should be shared with others. Study with me and I will help you find your voice so you can share with the people in your life.

About Chris

Today is the perfect time to take up a new instrument! I'm a graduate of the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), Penn State (We Are!), and the University of Southern California (Fight On!) Trumpet playing can be broken down into 3 basic principles: TONE, TECHNIQUE, and MUSICALITY. I will work with y

Great first ever trumpet lesson! I learned many things that included: maintaining, setup, hand placement, holding notes and more. Chris is an experienced instructor that has a positive energy and He’s very encouraging.

I have known and worked with Chris for four years. As a trumpeter, Chris is truly exemplary. He is beyond capable in all styles of music, and is an extremely creative and innovative performer. He has experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities; from young and mature beginners to college level students taking auditions.

I have played with Chris in brass quintet, duo, trio, orchestral and wind ensemble settings, and have never stopped being excited and inspired by his playing. As a soloist, Chris has presented many beautiful solo performances that involve and communicate with audience members. He is not afraid to break down the wall between performer and audience, a refreshing take on the classical artform.

Along with being a fantastic performer and educator, Chris is an advocate for the outreach and sharing of music. He has worked with nursing homes, hospitals, and local school districts to share music with more people.

I highly recommend Chris as a teacher, and believe any student who has the opportunity to work with and learn from him is on the best path to reach their goals.

Hello! I am a classically trained trumpet player holding a bachelors in music from Northwestern University and I've been playing for 16 years. My pedagogy focuses on strong fundamentals and a good sound as the basis of successful trumpet playing. All ages and skill levels welcome!

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.

"Gary is a great musician and a wonderful communicator. If you go to the jam sessions around San Diego you will probably catch him playing trumpet or singing and tearing it up. I've really enjoyed getting to work with a guy who has vast knowledge about many different aspects of the music making process - from gear, to business, to creativity, and technique - he knows what he's talking about :-)"

Bobby also has a good understanding of music theory. He explains and demonstrates musical concepts very thoroughly."
