My name is Jules, and I am a junior at UCLA studying music and trumpet performance. I can't wait to share all I've learned from trumpet professionals in the industry with you! I know that private lessons are usually hard to afford, so my pricing is low in order to make them accessible for you. I can teach all levels, beginner to advanced.

Jules is not only an awesome trumpet teacher/player, but he is also an amazing person! He has taught me so much about jazz improvisation and trumpet playing in general and I have had a ton of fun along the way due to his friendly and funny personality. I would definitely recommend Jules to any trumpet players looking to improve their playing and learn more about music.

Jules is an absolutely incredible trumpet player and teacher. He’s extremely approachable, and has a phenomenal jazz vocabulary and endless suggestions to help you improve tone, improvisation, and practicing techniques. He’s helped me a lot with my own technique, articulations, and foundation for jazz improvisation over the past year. I would definitely recommend him if you are trying to improve any aspect of your playing!

Jules has an incredibly deep understanding of music/trumpet that is clearly evident in his teachings. He is very good at explaining complex concepts in simpler terms which makes learning much more efficient. Also an incredible soloist, he knows and can probably teach most genres of trumpet repertoire to students!
