Guaranteed to make your trumpet playing easier and more enjoyable!
With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.
About Pablo R.

With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment where my students will learn about music as a whole while we talk about the specific subjects the student is interested in. I primarily teach trumpet and songwriting. Trumpet students can expect noticeable improvement from week to week through my unique teaching approach. Anyone can tell you to practice scales out of method books, but my teaching incorporates a theoretical foundation helping my students understand music as a whole. In my own experience, this has helped me the most in my own trumpet playing. Songwriting students can expect to have their own songs written from month to month as we work to demystify the difficulty of song writing. I have developed my own unique approach to songwriting designed to make the process easy and methodical. I graduated from Whitman College in 2015 with a degree in Jazz Studies. By that time, I was already teaching and actively gigging in the Eastern Washington area. This year I moved to Portland Oregon where I currently reside and am an active member of Portland's music scene. I have performed in large jazz ensembles, symphony orchestras, pit orchestras, ska bands, salsa groups, and jazz combos. I will be releasing my debut studio album this year comprised entirely of my own compositions that I have been working on for three years. My other interests include weight lifting, running, hiking, and cooking.
