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.
