Troy is absolutely amazing! He is so kind and understanding. He walked my son through every step and provides updates and suggestions frequently. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Working with Troy was great. More than your money's worth. He did a good job diagnosing embouchure / air flow / sound issues via webcam and working me through a variety of exercises from scales to interval exercises to rhythm practice including lip buzzing and lip bends, as well as other techniques to help me raise my range. He was also helpful in heading off bad habits and giving suggestions for things to work on. He was responsive when I asked to reschedule a lesson for later on and working around different schedules. Would highly recommend.

Troy is an amazing trumpet teacher! My son really enjoys working with him, and he's now one of the more successful trumpet players in his band thanks to Troy.
