Pasquale does what great teachers do - he meets the student at the student's level. I'm 64 and have been an advanced beginner my whole life. Pasquale has given me reason to think I will become a real trumpet player in the not too distant future.

He makes it real clear that I have to do the work but he is providing a very solid path to follow.

I strongly recommend as a terrific teacher.

My 14 yr old son just switched from trumpet to tuba and started tuba lessons with Mr. Gallo today. Mr. Gallo seems very knowledgeable not only about teaching tuba, but also about trumpet and other brass instruments so he knows how to help my son transition from one instrument to the other in the best way. It was a great first lesson, looking forward to more.

Very knowledgeable. Pasquale gently urged me to consider doing some “work” which is to say the very exercises I have avoided for most of my life. Sometimes you just need a good coach. My first impression is that Pasquale might be that coach.

I enjoyed the lesson.

Gallo does a great job of knowing how to assess your playing, and give clear and encouraging feedback on how to get better. He certainly taken my trumpet playing and teaching to the next level!

Our son has been studying with Mr Gallo for several months, and he has been showing great improvements, in such a short amount of time, in both the school band and at home. Mr Gallo is kind, patient, and encouraging. Our son immediately felt comfortable with him, and looks forward to his lessons. Mr Gallo is accommodating and understanding if we ever need to reschedule. Even when we are eventually given the opportunity to begin in person lessons with a teacher whose is near our home, we would like to continue with Mr Gallo. We can’t imagine our son being taught by anyone else! We highly recommend him as a teacher, he is simply wonderful!

Pasquale is an excellent French horn teacher for our 14 year old son. He relates very well to our son and is extremely positive and encouraging. He is concerned about his students and wants to make sure they make progress. Our son thinks very highly of him. We highly recommend Pasquale and have been very happy with our experience with him.

Pasquale is an immensely qualified instructor. I was surprised at how well instruction can be provided online, and that must come from a wealth of teaching experience and deep knowledge of the instrument and the process.

I am a very mature(read old) student and I had been wanting to learn to play the trombone. The catch was that I had never taken lessons and could not read music. Pasquale was absolutely unflapped by this. He had the patience of a saint, had the ability to make me feel comfortable and was 1000% encouraging in my quest. Oh and also by the way...he knows his stuff and is gifted in his ability to teach it in a way that I could understand and be comfortable. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!!!

We love Pasquale... he has really helped our son excel in his trumpet playing. Pasquale is always encouraging quick to recognize our son when our son does a good job and always calls him out (in a nice way) when it's obvious he hasn't practiced!

Pasquale has a fun sense of humour, which our son loves. He has brought fun to the lesson and our son looks forward to his lessons twice a week.

My son has been taking lessons from Mr. Gallo for this entire school year. He started out not even knowing how to hold the horn or buzz on the mouthpiece. Mr. Gallo has been instrumental in teaching him this year. Yes, my son was in band, but he really needed the extra instruction to be successful with such a hard instrument. What I appreciate about Mr. Gallo's teaching style is he is very encouraging and he is very clear about establishing a good foundation for playing the horn. He knows the proper techniques to strengthen the embouchure and the musical exercises needed to succeed. He has been a very reliable teacher and he was always willing to help my son with anything needed, such as helping him prepare for his solo competition. Overall, I am very impressed with how much my son has learned this year with Mr. Gallo's instruction and he went on to get the highest possible score in his solo competition and more importantly he really enjoys playing the french horn.

My 7/8 year old REALLY wanted to try trombone, a difficult instrument for anyone but especially a young kid. Pasquale agreed to take him on without judgment or preconceptions. Ultimately it was a little too difficult but he completely understood that a kid should still be allowed to experiment. His teaching style was the perfect balance of stern and jovial and my typical silly kid respected him. When the time came to end lessons, my kid is not dissuaded and is looking forward to trying new instruments. Pasquale was very understanding and let me and my kid know that if the passion for trombone returns he is still his teacher. Thanks Pasquale!

My son, Evan had one of the best music lesson experiences he ever could have had after years of lessons with just a few lessons with Mr. G! The level of expertise and instruction that can be delivered to your child in one lesson is truly second to none. Your child will see instant improvements in the quality of their performances if the skills and instruction Mr. G demonstrates and converses to your child is implemented. In just 4 lessons, my son went from an average trombone player to well enough to go on to a difficult state competition. He could not have achieved that success without the careful and guided instruction of Mr. G. He truly is an outstanding instructor and is worth is weight in gold!

I am a high school student who has been taking trombone lessons for four years, and I have been playing for six years. I was having trouble on this difficult piece that had a wide range of notes, and I needed help with this because I had an upcoming state competition. Eventually, it was recommended to me to find a professional who taught at a collegiate level, and that was when I went online and found Mr. Gallo. I decided to sign up with him for six lessons just to see what I needed to work, but when I started taking lessons with him, I realized how much improvement I needed to make on my trombone. He had denoted instantly in my first lesson what I was doing wrong. Thanks to Mr. Gallo's phenomenal teaching, I have embraced a more acute and accurate practice routine as well as a better embrasure which has assisted me in unlocking a higher range on my trombone than I have ever reached before. The practice technicalities he has taught me that have become very advantageous to me, and will be easily instituted in more complicated pieces in the future.

My son started with Mr. Gallo at the beginning of summer and we have decided to continue into the school year. He can easily read each students musical ability and creates a lesson plan accordingly. His critiques, while kindly, are thorough as he strives to get the best out of students.
My son enjoys the lessons and has improved in sound quality and technique. Web based lessons have worked out great for us as my son plays the tuba. Mr. Gallo has been flexible with the schedule which we appreciate. We highly recommend Mr. Gallo and the Take Lessons website/platform.

Mr. Gallo is an excellent instructor. He worked with my son to get to know where he was as a student and then created instruction based on that. He also was able to pinpoint what areas my son needed to work on to become a better musician. We are very happy with his methods and plan to continue with Mr. Gallo as my son continues to develop and learn his instrument.

Mr. Gallo is phenominal! My son has learned so much in such a short time. He is patient, understanding, and very professional. He has a knack for adapting the lessons to suit the student’s needs, not the other way around, which is beyond helpful since my son battles with ADHD. His years and years of experience, along with the long list of sincere reviews posted by others, speak for itself. My hope is that my son will be first chair every year while in school, and I believe whole- heartedly that Mr. Gallo will get him there. Simply put, great teacher, and great methods. You absolutely, 100%, get what you pay for. The world needs more teachers like this. Happy student, and happy mom!! :)

My son has been taking lessons with Mr. Gallo for a few months, and his progress on the french horn has been amazing and quite surprising! Mr. Gallo is extremely patient and provides excellent instruction that has helped my son develop technical skills to improve his intonation, endurance, and pitch recognition. Mr. Gallo has the perfect balance of guided instruction, positive feedback, making the lesson fun, and ability to push a student further in his playing. I was a little hesitant to try online lessons, but it is honestly the best solution when you have an instructor who cares so deeply for his students and their improvement. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Gallo!

Mr. Gallo was very professional. He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure you know the correct method from start to finish and doesn't just teach you the notes/music. We were very pleased with his teaching method. Thank you.

My 13 year old daughter wanted lessons to improve on her french horn playing . We found Pasquale through his positive reviews and thought we would give him a try. I was a little apprehensive that lessons could be effective through the Internet verses in person. I was wrong.
Pasquale called us as soon as we signed up for lessons to introduce himself, exchange Skype information as well as iron out the best times for lessons.
I played French horn from 5th grade through most of high school and also took some private lessons.
I was extremely impressed with Pasquale. He took the time to really explain to my daughter the mechanics of playing a brass instrument better than I ever heard it when I was younger.
He had my daughter take notes and gave her assignments for the next week.
I am looking forward to watching my daughter's playing grow under his guidance.

I can't express enough in words how wonderful Mr. Gallo is as a music instructor. He has been teaching both my boys trumpet for ten years now. My older son has achieved Superior Ratings in Solo and Ensemble for 6 years straight, was selected to perform with the All County Jazz Band for 3 years and contributed to MSD High School winning numerous awards in Jazz, Concert, Symphonic and Marching Band. My younger son started his first lessons last year (6th Grade) and achieved Superior Ratings on his first Solo and Ensemble. All of these accomplishments are due to Mr. Gallo's excellent teaching skills and the knowledge of how to get you or your child to reach their full potential. I strongly recommend Mr. Gallo to any parent or student who wants to learn from one of the best.

Mr. Gallo has taught me musically for almost 7 years and I have been taking lessons with him now for almost 6. In my opinion, he is one of the best music instructors I have ever worked with. He is wise, informative, understanding, and flexible with scheduling lessons. He makes sure to do what is best for his students. Without him, I wouldn't be the musician I am today. From having to deal with the physical problems and even improving my musicianship, Mr. Gallo has been able to steer me in the right direction with advice from his past years of teaching and playing. Even after marching in the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps for the past two summers, I have always resorted back to taking lessons with Mr. Gallo. With his help, I have been able to play the highest ranked solos and earned the highest evaluation in my state's Solo and Ensemble events. Now, I am a senior in high school and I feel very confident with my decisions of pursuing music in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Gallo as a trumpet, brass, and even music teacher.

I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman

Mr. Gallo is a wonderful instructor. I started taking lessons with him in 7th grade, and even now that I'm in college I try to take lessons with him whenever the opportunity presents itself. He caters each lesson specifically to what the individual student needs and would benefit from, rather than attempting to force one instructional path on his students. He is very flexible and willing to work around each student's schedule to figure out when lessons would best fit into the week. He is patient and very friendly; definitely someone easy to work with. You won't get better lessons for a better price.

I started taking lessons with Mr. Gallo when I was in 6th grade. I am in tenth grade now and I am a phenomenal player. Whether I needed help with a playing issue or had an event and wanted to be ready, he always knows the answer. Every time I think I have reached my peak in playing, he surprises me and bumps me to the next level. Solo ensemble is a band event in which you would go to and have judges judge your playing on a particular song. This year I am playing a level 7, which is the highest level of difficulty you can play for this and will ever see in the real world musician life. Most professionals can't do this. No one you can find will be as good as a teacher as Mr. Gallo.

I have been taking lesson with Mr. Gallo for over 4 years now and not once have he met any challenges that I face and was unable to fix it.Through Mr.Gallo's lessons,I came from being a player who lacks the desires to pick up my horn and practice everyday and someone who just doesn't have the confident to play a note properly (doing things half measure) to a player who cares about the tone quality and initiation of a note and putting in the work by practicing everyday to get good results.My work ethic and the desire to play my horn have increase through having lesson with Mr.Gallo and I would recommend this instructor to anyone who express an interest in playing Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, and French horn, or someone who just wanted to learn music theory.

Mr. Gallo has been teaching me for over 6 years now and has made me an amazing French horn player. I started off without knowing how to play the instrument let alone a proper note and transitioned into playing the horn in 4 registers with quality sound. He's also help me make drum corps like the blue knights and the blue stars.

Mr. Gallo has been giving me lessons for over five years. I'm only 17 but I've learned so much that I could probably teach on my own. If you need help with learning how to play trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, whether you're a beginner or whether you want to learn more at an advanced level, Mr. Gallo is the man for the job.
