Once again, Edward P. has helped me to become a better trumpet player. I really would like to acknowledge how Mr.P. reiterated the previous lesson's key parts just as a refresher. Another great lesson has passed and I look forward to next weeks lesson.

I personally would like to thank Edward P. for his time and patience. I'm a twelve year old that's barely even touched a trumpet and he really helped me to gain an understanding and appreciation for this instrument. I look forward to my next lesson with him, and if you are looking for a trumpet instructor, Edward P. is your guy.

Just completed our first lesson with Eddie. I was amazed at how well the online lesson went. He was a good teacher and was really funny. Our son was very nervous at first but by the end of the lesson he was chuckling and laughing and actually could make a decent sound out of that trumpet.

Edward was thorough in his check on what I already knew how to do in regards to piano technique. He asked me for my input in my learning, which is always nice. I have quite a few songs I want to learn and master and I think he can help me do it. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

My 16-year-old grandson has had 2 lessons with Edward now. He's enjoying them so much and is the envy of his brother and sisters! Edward is patient with him, which is a good thing because Noah is extremely shy. But Edward has my grandson coming out of his shell :) I'm very pleased to have chosen Edward as our instructor.

Edward taught me how to hit good notes on the bugle within 30 minutes. He shows that he really wants to help you and is very knowledgeable on different ways to teach his students.
