We started online trumpet lessons with Edward about a month or so ago. My son was auditioning for Symphonic band and he made it with self determination, persistence without resistance AND EDWARD guidance and availability to see this through. WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOU!!!
This is my first lesson with Edward and he is great!!!!!!!
He went through stuff I didn't know so that was really helpful!!!!!!!!! :)
My son is excited to work extra hard thanks to Edward's challenges
My son is preparing for an audition. He felt like a few more lessons with Edward will help him succeed.
My son said Edward is cool and funny!
Thank you Edward!
Edward is polite and accommodating
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.+ Read More

Understanding and very nice 50 stars
kept echoeing and buffering
He was very descriptive and nice. He was also understanding.
We are very pleased and excited with Edward. He's a patient teacher and most importantly, my grandson enjoys him. He looks forward to his lesson each week! Couldn't be happier with choosing Edward as our instructor.
I really like him and how he teaches. After just one class, I've noticed an improvement.
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.+ Read More
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.
He is very kind and I like working with him.
My son enjoyed his lesson and wanted to show us what he had learned. Happy that he is enjoying playing again!
Great guy, good with kids. The lessons were very effective and my son showed much improvement. Very affordable and well worth.
