I’m an experienced teacher with 8 years of experience teaching trumpet and other brass instruments. Additionally, I am a band director; I tailor instruction based on a student’s musical needs, and use the trumpet as a focus for instruction. My teaching emphasizes not only solid fundamental development, but also fosters a student’s individuality and creativity through targeted ear training and composition exercises.

About Andrew W.

I’m a trumpet teacher and performer, as well as a high school band director! My teaching centers around helping each student determine their musical goals, and creating a clear plan for achieving those goals. Ultimately, my job is to teach you how to diagnose and address your own technical and musical questions! When you get to a point where you can fix your own playing issues, I’ve done my job well!
