Ear training is a critical and valuable music skill to help one develop into a well rounded musician. I teach ear training using the classical training methods I learned at Juilliard. We study intervals, chords, scales, and work on singing simple melodies. I use fixed do solfeggio.

We feel lucky to find Mr. Jerry V. as our 12 year old son's trumpet teacher. His course is very well structured and planned, using classical training materials covering various basics and skills my son needs to learn and master to make step by step progresses. His teaching is efficient and effective, with beautiful demo, which is very important for his student, especially young ones. His practice assignments are also well designed and planned, with which my son has been making solid progress. He is also very easy to communicate and is nice and kind. With the well structured course, assignments, experienced and professional teaching, an excellent trumpet player himself, we are happy with Mr. Jerry V, and will keep him as long as possible.

Jerry gives my daughter trumpet lessons online and it has been a great experience. He has a great deal of knowledge and my daughter has found his teaching method to be beneficial. Jerry is great with communication and follows up the lesson with notes and assignments. He has mixed practical with theory and there is a balance with the assignments where my daughter can also share the music that she needs to practice for orchestra. Jerry is accommodating with schedules. I can confidently say that the lessons with Jerry are quite beneficial and my daughter has great things to say about Jerry's personality as well as teaching style.

Had my first lesson with Jerry and though we had some technology issues I truly enjoyed his teaching and thoroughness of instruction. I wanted a professional trumpet player and experienced teacher and Jerry is really meeting my expectations. I’m truly looking forward to working with him each week. Also, his follow up after the lesson was outstanding.

My son has started playing trumpet at school for 2 months. As he progresses very well and has the interest in trumpet, he needs a formal trumpet tutor to build the solid foundation and boost his skill. Luckily we find Jerry on takelessons. Jerry is very professional about teaching trumpet. He provides the material and shows the basic technique to my son. He sets up the daily practice routine. After 2 weeks, we notice that my son improves his sound production ans his skill!

We are so lucky to have found Jerry. He is professional, patient and makes my 12 year old's trumpet lessons enjoyable yet always challenging. Wit in just a few weeks of working with Jerry, my sons grades in band have gone up. Even after my son broke his arm playing sports, Jerry manages to find effective ways to keep him involved and progressing with the trumpet.

Jerry is a super understanding and kind person. He does his best to help my son to improve his trumpet skill. He encourges my son to practice everyday and gives various materials to help him to play trumpet. He is one of the best teachers we have ever had, and the nicest.
