After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

Experienced trumpet teacher/professional player of ten years. My goal is to inspire and help each of my students grow with custom tailored lessons primarily using exercises which I create specifically for each student. I make sure that all my students have a very strong understanding of the foundation and basics of trumpet playing so they learn to play the correct way from the start. I am well versed in many genres new and old from jazz and classical to funk, pop, reggae and hip-hop. Students must have their own instrument. I provide a music stand and blank staff paper for students coming to my home location while students I drive to must have music stand.
I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance.
Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes!
Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!
My name is Charlie. I am a twenty three year old comedian and musician from London (moved to LA a couple of years ago). I've been playing music for twelve years, with an emphasis in jazz, and love passing on what I know to others. Music is one of life's ultimate treats and I consider it a privilege to get to share it with people. I'm a fun, smart, easy going guy who can get you started on a number of instruments if you'd like. Or we can just rock that trumpet!
