Trumpet · In home

My 9 yr old son is a beginner trumpet player and has had 2 one hour lessons with Mike. Mike's passion for the trumpet and music is contagious and my son is loving playing the trumpet! I'm pleasantly surprised at how much my son has learned in just 2 lessons and how much he looks forward to his lessons!
