Welcome to my profile! Throughout the eight years I have spent as a trumpet player, I have developed a firm understanding of musical techniques that range from classical to jazz styles. I would love to deepen my passion for music by sharing my knowledge with you! Our lessons would consist of learning the fundamentals of trumpet playing, sight reading practice, an introduction to music theory. Beginners of all ages welcomed. I cannot wait to begin our time together!

About Calypso P.

I am currently pursuing an Associates degree in Music Education at Miami Dade College. Through my studies at Miami Dade College, I have been able to become a certified substitute teacher at MDCPS. I have been playing trumpet for about eight years now. Throughout my musical career, I have studied different levels of music theory and participated in ensembles like wind symphony, jazz band, marching band, opera, musical theater, and choir.

In these different ensembles I learned how to balance and blend my sound with the surrounding instruments. By being in a variety of ensembles, I have experience in using different techniques to help fit the styles of classical, jazz, and even contemporary music. With these experiences I have been able to excel at releasing tension in the lips, and using proper breath support to help create a present and clear sound.

Trumpet students can expect to improve their theoretical and practical knowledge with every lesson. I teach beginner students the basics of holding the instrument, and caring for the instrument. Beginner students will learn how to produce the proper embouchure to create a clear sounding tone, and how to understand different playing styles/techniques for the student's choice of music genre.

I aim to use my knowledge and experience to create a welcoming environment in which students will feel encouraged to pursue their passion and become a better musician. I look forward to making music with you!
