Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I believe every student is different, and by that I mean every student’s brain has a different way of processing a new skill. When students learn differently, that means a teacher needs to have different approaches for teaching a wide range of musical and technical skills. Ultimately, we want to be able to have a multitude of routes to the same destination. The same applies to physical setup. With every student, comes a new pair of lips, teeth, tongue etc. This should not however change the desired outcome. As long as the proper setup can be achieved (which it almost always can) then every student has the potential to be great. With every student (even beginners) teaching musicality should always be the priority. In the beginning when the fundamentals aren’t fully developed, this can be difficult. I require students of all ages to listen to music, whether it is influential music on their instrument, or music that demonstrates superior musicality, regardless of what instrument it is written for. This ensures my students will start making their own musical decisions in their repertoire as soon as possible.

Teaching since:

My name is Jake! I am from the Cleveland, Ohio area. I have a Bachelors degree from The University of Akron in Trumpet Performance and a Masters degree from Louisiana State University, also in Trumpet Performance. I have been teaching private trumpet lessons for about 7 years. In this time, I have worked with hundreds of students ranging in age and skill level, from beginners at the age of 10 years old to advanced college students.
Every student is different and learns differently. As an experienced teacher, I believe we need to have a multitude of routes to the same destination. I also believe in the potential for greatness in every student. It takes hard work, but I am happy to guide your child to reaching their full potential. The majority of my teaching is centered on creating a beautiful sound and making music.

Trumpet · In studio

My daughter's first year in Marching Band was a success. She played trumpet for 4 years and switched to mellophone for Marching Band season. Lessons with Jake for both instruments helped her grow into a much more confident player. Jake is a great inspiration and teacher.

My daughter has taken lessons from Jacob for over two years and greatly enjoys him as a teacher. Her musical ability has grown significantly under his guidance. He is patient and through as well as challenges his students to be the best that they can be. I would highly recommend him as an instructor.
