With over 10 years of playing the trumpet under my belt, my specialization is in Jazz, along with theory. I can help beginners grasp the intricacies of playing trumpet, to advanced players looking to broaden their knowledge. Too many times have I taken private lessons from unenthusiastic players that take the process too seriously. Music should be fun! Which I prioritize in my lessons. I look forward to working with you!

About Tom P.

I have been playing trumpet for over 10 years. I've been gigging around the New Haven area for about three years now, and have played numerous styles. From traditional jazz, to bebop, to New Orleans Second Line, to Funk. Being immersed in these styles has made me very accustomed to playing in those styles, which I will able to share with you!

I'm currently enrolled at Southern Connecticut State University, pursuing a bachelors in Music with plans on getting my masters in music education.

I'm somewhat of a "theory-nerd", meaning I have a deep appreciation for music theory, and it's application. From reading sheet music, to identifying scales to use over chords, I will assist you in whatever it is you want to be improved.

Teacher not only provided help and techniques for my range and playing but also taught me about the theory and scales behind soloing. I am now the lead trumped in my high school band and jazz band thanks to weekly lessons

Provided a lot of insight into what I was doing wrong on the instrument, and gave me good exercises to do weekly. Definitely recommend.
