La Jolla, CA
View Full Profile

With over 10 years of teaching experience, and sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Mintzer and Gilbert Castellanos, trumpet playing is my biggest passion. Our lessons will be focused, yet relaxed; challenging but always fun and full of exciting challenges. My playing and teaching experiences have helped me understand what it takes to reach that "next level" of trumpet playing, whether it involves range, technique, or musical performance. I hope we can make some great music together soon!

About Carlos
Hello! My name is Carlos and I can't wait to have you as a student! I've been teaching trumpet for over 13 years and have loved helping my students discover the joy of playing an instrument, and making beautiful music! I studied music at San Diego State University and the New England Conservatory of Music where I earned a degree in Music Performance and was an Academic Fellow. I'm an encouraging, patient, and lively teacher. We will be learning the basics of trumpet playing, and progressing each week with tailored lesson plans, all the while making beautiful music in the process. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Trumpet is a wonderful instrument for both the young and young-at-heart. I have been playing trumpet for most of my life, and teaching it for 14 years.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet
Clarinet
Alto Saxophone

Beginners or advanced players. I have studied trumpet with many of the best teachers in America, including John Haynie, Bert Truax, locally Gilbert Castellanos and Arturo Sandoval. The list is too long to name the all,but I have had opportunities to learn from many of the most famous players.

About Gary
Hello, my name is Gary R. and I am a life long music instructor.
Whether you are just beginning, or have been making music since you were a kid, you should know that private lessons are the quickest avenue to improvement. My lessons are designed for each student individually to maximize their experience. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. Advanced trumpet players are welcome too.
I also teach on SKYPE, and have successful students, including an all area jazz and all state jazz band trumpeter in Houston. He also made all area band last year. I also have vocalists gigging, songwriters writing, and young pianists playing well!
I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees of Music Education from the University of North Texas, a University well known for their music school and famous graduates. I have performed with a num
ber of bands since college. I am an alumnus of the Dallas Cowboy's band, The Funk Monsters, Idle Hands, Syntax, and many more DFW area groups. In San Diego, I host a jazz jam each month featuring some of the area's hottest players.
My primary expertise is teaching Trumpet or related brass instruments, vocal jazz, and piano for kids and adults.

I can not say enough good things about Gary. Currently three of our children are taking online lessons with him. I will admit that I was very nervous about online lessons but Gary has been amazing. He has a way of communicating with our children, who range in age from 10-16, that gets his point across and inspires them. If you are looking for a brass teacher Gary is the one you want!

Experienced music teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! While clarinet is my primary instrument I have a special attachment to the trumpet. My original clarinet teacher was in fact a trumpet player and is currently a section leader for one of the United States Air Force Bands. I have also given private lessons to 4 trumpet players - some of whom have gone on to do very well at the high school level.

About Michael
Michael A Tate graduated from the prestigious Music Education Program and Psychology Program at Ithaca College in 2012. Ithaca gave him the incredible opportunity to hone in on his musicianship and compositional skills. He was also able to discover a new medium of composition, film composition. Tate immediately fell in love with the art of writing music for film and was able to make his first musical debut on a film directed by Mike Blaney. In his time at Ithaca College, he composed scores for multiple films and continues to maintain an active composition career. Tate is currently finishing as a music teacher Brooklyn Scholars Charter School (BSCS) and Music Content Leader for National Heritage Academies (NHA) New York Branch. In the fall Tate will be returning to school to study the psychological benefits of music education for children
and adolescents, while teaching private lessons.

Best instructor ever! Michael tailors each lesson for my 10-year-old son--who honestly is a reluctant student. In three lessons Michael has improved his playing and also given him practical fun tips on how to practice between lessons.

About Philippe B.

Washington, DC

View Full Profile

I have over 10 years teaching experience from beginner through professional level. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the top trumpet instructors in the world and want to share my knowledge and experience with my students. My mission as a teacher is to inspire students to learn the art of the trumpet through a growth and goal oriented approach. I encourage my students to think critically and reflect frequently on their own playing as well as the musical meaning of their pieces. Whether the student is preparing for All-State auditions, college auditions, solo and ensemble, is having chop problems, needs and embouchure change, or just starting out and wants to learn good habits and skills, I can help along the way.

About Philippe
I am a professional trumpet player and teacher of all levels. I have performed across the US, Canada, UK, and Europe with groups the likes of the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, the Miami City Ballet, Naples Philharmonic, Southwest Florida Symphony, South Florida Symphony, the Aspen Music Festival, the National Academy Orchestra of Canada, the Henry Mancini Institute, the Dartington Music Festival in the UK. I also premiered a concerto for solo trumpet called Fanfares for the Apocalypse by Rome Prize winner, Ken Ueno which can be heard in my videos.

I have had the privilege of studying with some of the best trumpet teachers and players in the world. I earned my Doctorate in Trumpet Performance from the University of Miami. I have well over a decade of experience teaching trumpet at all levels including repertoire, technical he
lp, and even chop rebuilds. I am familiar and have taught nearly all of the major pedagogical trumpet methods including Arban, Schlossberg, Stamp, Thompson, Franquin, Caruso, and of course, CIarke. I went through a major embouchure change in 2009 and have come from barely being able to play, to playing with professional groups and making a living as a trumpet player. I am proof that dedication and hard work do pay off and can result in a real career playing the trumpet, despite the odds.

As your teacher and guide, I will commit to seeing you succeed and provide you with the necessary tools to do so.

“…visionary and tireless trumpeter “ Edward Carroll

“Philippe is a person that sees no obstacle that cannot be overcome. In fact, he sees that obstacle as a play-toy to invent and to discover new innovations with creativity and aplomb.” Russell DeVuyst, former associate principal Montreal Symphony.

“Virtuosity was decidedly the order of the evening. . . .P. T. Barnum probably would have said that the ability to bear witness to such a breadth of skills would have made last night’s concert worth the price of admission. On the whole, I suspect I would have agreed with him.”
Stephen Smoliar, SF Classical Music Examiner

Phillipe is an amazing teacher. He was very patient and knowledgeable with helping me get started on the cornet. He is great with teaching beginners the basics and techniques to help succeed long term. I was able to play a few notes just after my lesson. I will definitely be taking more lessons with him because I am pleased. Thank you!

Philippe taught me for one year while I was a performance major at the University of Miami. I made more progress under his instruction than I did for the other 3 years of studies. He was able to instruct and assist me with problems I had been struggling with while under the instruction of a number of great teachers.

I have a wealth of experience as a trumpeter and music teacher, and hold three degrees in music: DMA from Univ. of Georgia, MM from UT-Austin, and BM from N. Dakota State Univ. I am trained mostly in and play primarily "classical" trumpet, but have experience performing and teaching jazz and pop/commercial styles. Working with kids and adults on music is enjoyable and fulfilling, and I strive to help students as much as possible.

About Daniel C.

Denton, TX
View Full Profile

I have been gigging, both classically and in jazz, in the greater DFW Metroplex for about 9 years. I attended high school close by, and I am the only two-time 6A All-State tenor trombonist in my city's history. I have completed two years at the University of North Texas, and have been teaching for approximately two years. I consistently double between tenor & bass trombone, having a great deal of experience in both instruments, in both classical and jazz settings. Outside of trombone, I also play trumpet/cornet, tuba, vocals, guitar, bass, and piano. I am an avid rock/metal listener, and compose my own music, mainly fusing metal and jazz. Because of this, I feel this makes me an extremely diverse instrumentalist. I have studied with such influential figures as Tony Baker (UNT, Dallas Opera Orchestra), Steve Menard (UNT, Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra), Dennis Bubert (UT Arlington, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra), and more.

About Daniel
I began playing in 6th grade. My dad is a guitarist/vocalist/flautist (he gigs in the south DFW area) and brought me up in a very musical household. Since then, I have played with groups such as Scott & Steve, Big Gus & Swampadelic, the Pecos River Brass Big Band, and some of UNT's top ensembles, including the U-Tubes, the 3:00 Lab Band, and the A Cappella Choir.

I don't only teach my students, I mentor them, create a lasting friendship and help them reach their full potential and level of excellence.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

About Wade B.

Vincennes, IN
View Full Profile

I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

About Wade
I am a GRAMMY Nominated educator, trumpeter, guitarist, bassist, pianist, singer/songwriter, composer/arranger, drummer and recording artist. I graduated from University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor’s of Arts with a concentration in Jazz Studies and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music with a Master’s in Jazz Studies, specifically in trumpet. I am currently Director of Instrumental Music at Olney Central College and Linclon Trail College and have taught at Vincennes University in the past.

I work with brass players, improvisors, singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists, drummers & songwriters/producers/composers in a wide age & stylistic range and assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music
using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun. I can help any student to play or sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a professional recording artist I have frequently taken trips to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and many more cities for co-writing, recording, gigging and meeting with record labels. I have worked with well-known artists like Bootsy Collins (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Philip Paul (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Leroy Parnell (Country Music Legend), Marshall Jones (Original Bassist for Ohio Players), Liz Mandeville (Chicago Blues Hall of Fame), and Pinetop Perkins (GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award Winner). I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic and versatile musicians.

My personal passion is jazz, blues and soul music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Wade Baker was a great trumpet instructor. One thing I noticed and liked a lot from the moment I met him was that he connected with his students to create a better musical experience. Only good things came out of my lessons and rehearsals with him. I was only under his instruction for a year, but I grew a lot as a player with the help from him and also learned more about music than I ever did before. Wade is a very experienced player in multiple genres of music and he makes sure to use all of what he learned to teach his students. The only downside to being under his instruction was how busy he could be at times, but as a musician myself I completely understood. I would recommend Wade to anyone with how great my experience was with him.
