Trumpet lessons with an experienced musician and instructor
I have 30+ years experience working with trumpet students at all levels and helping them to have success in their trumpet playing! I assess each student´s ability and find out what their current playing level is and go from there. I have started many beginners from scratch, worked with intermediate players to correct/solve common playing problems and have worked with advanced high school trumpeters to prepare for honors band and college auditions. I have also worked with adults who wanted to get back into playing shape with their horns for their own enjoyment. In addition to my teaching experience, I have played professionally in many different musical groups including big bands, New Orleans/Dixieland Jazz Bands, brass quintets and military/concert bands. I enjoy working with students of all levels and backgrounds and frequently supplement teaching methods with my own exercises and melodies to enhance students learning and enjoyment.
About Robert S.

I am a professional musician who graduated from Duquesne University with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. While performing with the Air Force Band of Flight at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, I earned a Master of Music Degree in Trumpet Performance from Wright State University. Aside from military ceremonies and parades, I was fortunate enough to perform with the concert and jazz bands, brass quintet and small combo, touring 10 mid-Western/mid-Atlantic states as well as Canada and the Azores. My private teaching has been focused on school-age students in grades 4-12. I strive to help each student improve on their instrument, whether an elementary grade beginner, intermediate level student or an advanced student wanting to work on a specific area of trumpet playing or favorite style of music. I have had to overcome a number of challenges over many years of trumpet playing, such as embouchure problems, stage fright (nerves!), endurance, range, etc. I feel that my experience in dealing with adversity, and successfully handling it, helps me to be a more effective teacher!
