Learn to play the trumpet like a professional from a teacher with a B.A in Music
I've been performing professionally in the Sacramento area in every conceivable context, while maintaining a private studio, for over a decade.
About Colin M.

I'm a life-long musician with a passion for the art and a love of teaching it. In 2012, I graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelors in Music. Through my schooling and personal study, I have become a well-rounded musician able to teach many instruments effectively. Making music with others at a high level, teaching, and having the opportunity to perform professionally around the Sacramento area has been a great experience. I look forward to continuing that journey, growing as a person and musician, and being a positive role-model for others! I've been playing trumpet nearly my entire life, and studied it in college. However, I am a multi-instrumentalist and currently teach trumpet, guitar, piano, and trombone. I specialize in classical style, but can also teach jazz theory, correct swing style, articulation, etc. I have studied with multiple music professors and have learned their most effective teaching methods. I have taken music theory classes that allow me to explain theory in a simplified manner to students. I have been playing guitar since high school and have taken many piano classes while in school, where proficiency is necessary in order to advance in the major. In my free time, I even play drums and multiple other instruments and listen to music constantly. Music is very much my life. This allows me the versatility to teach a variety of instruments and mold myself and my students into well-rounded musicians.

My daughter’s first lesson was great! Colin is super patient and made Francesca feel right at home. She’s looking forward to continuing.

Our first lesson was great! Colin was very patient with my son and helped him come out of his shell. It was a very informational lesson and we look forward to our next one!
