I teach mostly classical trumpet music and theory, ranging from Renaissance to Contemporary music. My lessons consist of working on tone quality, technical ability, musicality, and music theory on the trumpet.

Beginner Method Book Recommendation:
Essential Elements 2000 for Band - Trumpet Book

Intermediate Method Book Recommendations:
Arban's Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet
H. L. Clarke Technical Studies for the Cornet
Bordogni Melodious Etudes, trumpet part
The Buzzing Book, by James Thompson

Advanced Method Book Requirements:
All of the Intermediate books PLUS:
Charlier Transcendental Etudes
The Orchestral Trumpet by Michael Sachs

Students will be able to play with a confident sound and improve their musicality and technical proficiency on the trumpet. Students will learn etudes and solo pieces as a measure of progress and application.

About Alex M.

At 23 years of age, I feel I have come a long way with my passion for music. From southern Louisiana, I began my involvement in music by taking piano lessons at the age of 5. I began trumpet studies in my school bands starting at the age of 10. I have won numerous music awards and am pursuing a career in orchestral trumpet performance. I love sharing my knowledge with students and inspiring them to become better musicians. I have given trumpet lessons and clinics at various K-12 schools around Louisiana while studying music education at Loyola University New Orleans. I recently moved to Rochester, NY, to pursue my degree of Master of Music Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music, studying under James Thompson.
