Hello! My name is Carlos and I can't wait to have you as a student! I've been teaching trumpet for over 10 years and have loved helping my students discover the joy of playing an instrument, and making beautiful music! I studied music at San Diego State University and the New England Conservatory of Music where I earned a degree in Music Performance and was an Academic Fellow. I'm an encouraging, patient, and lively teacher. We will be learning the basics of trumpet playing, and progressing each week with tailored lesson plans, all the while making beautiful music in the process. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
