Trumpet lessons are all inclusive!

Lessons are broken down into multiple areas that guide you through all aspects of how to play trumpet.

1. Recommended Listening - Let's find what you like to listen to, and let's explore similar and unsimilar music. Exposure is the key to learning.
2. Let's learn how brass instruments work. Trumpeters have to learn how to use their air, lips, and musicality as a way to make the trumpet easy to play... Think of this as the pushups and situps of the trumpet. We have to do them in order to make the instrument playable.
3. Let's learn how music works - Music Theory lets us understand music. This is like learning the alphabet. Once you learn the alphabet, we can learn to spell, write, and read. Once you understand music theory, music becomes much more organized and easier to understand.
4. Let's learn the music you want to learn, and use the music you like to give you assignments that will help you learn appropriately.

My son started taking lessons a year ago, Nick used his strengths to help him learn. He has become inspired with the trumpet, and started to play a little every day.
Jose
I am taking online lessons with Nick, and he has helped me to understand what it is to be a musician. Before I started taking lessons, if someone asked me to play something, I was not able to do it without getting a sheet of music out and struggling A LOT. Now I am starting to be able to play the music I want to play, both by ear and reading. He teaches much more than just playing band music. I wish I could take more than a few lessons this summer.
Vaishnavi
I have a 8 year old daughter and 10 year old son both have been learning Piano for the last 2 years. Nick takes a holistic approach in teaching piano as opposed to sticking with the book. It includes creating a passion about listening different music, learning scales and chords outside of the book. I have recommended Nick to all my friends

As a teacher, a nurturing, encouraging, and comfortable environment can be expected for any student who chooses to pursue trumpet or piano lessons with me. I believe music lessons should be fun and reassuring for students, in addition to, providing constructive feedback for their musical development.

Have you hit a roadblock in your trumpet playing? Is your child not seeing progress from playing in their school band? Need help with your All-State audition? Picking up a hobby for the quarantine? Look no further!

My approach to the trumpet is one that starts with the sound of the music playing in my head. Once I can get you to hear beautiful trumpet sounds playing in your own head, you will find that playing the trumpet is as easy as blowing spit wads through a straw!

My students get a weekly dose of fundamentals that include long tones, flexibility, and articulation. Once those are in place, we can apply those skills learned to a musical etude. You can expect to cover as much material (or as little) as you want in a given week; I will pace your lessons according to your ability level and desire. But with the right amount of deliberate practice, I can help you become a truly great trumpeter.

Let's get this fired up!

hes nice from hayden
Keagan W.
Ruben is a very passionate trumpet player who’s plays and teaches from the heart. He’s a very patient and enthusiastic teacher who believes in his students. I was impressed with his philosophy that each student has a “trumpet voice” within them that he can help them find. It made a lot of sense to me and has inspired me. Thanks for all you do Ruben!
Hayden H.
Hayden really enjoyed his first lesson with Ruben. Ruben was skilled at making it work in an online format. My son is a bit shy, but Ruben is friendly and very encouraging.

I bring 42 years of experience as a performer and teacher to my lessons.
What I have learned in the world of performing I incorporate into my lessons, always based on the personal needs and goals of each individual. All are different and deserve the personal tailoring of their education to fit their needs. I use recorded materials as examples and as accompaniments as well as have materials both printed and other available to be shared with the student. I like to touch on all styles of music and at all levels. The student will learn breathing techniques, tone development, finger and articulation techniques, range development, improvisation, melodic interpretation, jazz study, and much more. There will even be music and trumpet history mixed in on occasion.
Mostly it's about enjoyment of trumpet and music and how our lives are enriched by them. Lessons in music are lessons in life.

About Steve

Performing and teaching since 1978, Steve has performed and toured with artists such as Prince, Cory Wong, Vulfpeck, Doc Severinsen Big Band, Larry Graham, Carmen Electra, Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Bolton, Frankie Valli, B J Thomas, Trisha Yearwood, Burt Bac

Whether you just purchased a trumpet having never played a note or you've already been playing for years, I will help you reach a new level of musicality. With 15 years of playing experience in a range of musical styles, I let my students interests guide the lesson. I truly listen to my students and tailor every lesson to a specific student's abilities and musical interests. Regardless of musical genre, the trumpet is a demanding instrument. Technique is an important part of every lesson. I teach my students how to be consistent with their technical routine. Even younger students become inspired to play every day because they can hear and feel the results in their playing.

My son, who is 15, has been studying trumpet with Jesse for about 3 years. He is a very gifted teacher and my son has learned so much. Jesse is patient and generous and meets students at their level, while still pushing them to progress. My son is the only sophomore at his high school to be selected for the top jazz band at this school. I think this is in large part due to his regular lessons with Jesse. In sum, Jesse is a wonderful teacher, not to mention a great trumpet player.

Hi there, I have been a musician all my life. Started singing when I was four years old. I started playing piano and clarinet early on in life before adding the trumpet, trombone, and eventually the drum set. I've had a great time doing music as it allows me to share my talent with others around

Theresa
I am a retired voice and piano teacher with 45 years of experience including teaching on the High School and university levels as well as performing in concerts and Opera and (still) serving as a Church Musician. Daniel Schlegel was one of my most advanced high school students in applied Voice. He was a talented, hard-working all-round musician and always a gentleman. I helped to prepare him for several auditions and concerts in which he excelled. Some of my most memorable occasions of performing with Mr. Schlegel were accompanying him in vocal competitions and especially at venues in Ireland, where he was warmly received by the Irish listeners. I believe that with his additional training, work ethic and experience teaching young people he would be a fine choice as a voice teacher.
Robert D Edwards
I have had the opportunity to observe Daniel teach Middle School students. He his an outstanding teacher. He pays attention to detail and gets the most out of them. There is never any wasted time and he has a heart fro young people and their music. I highly recommend him as a teacher for your child!
Doug Norwine
Daniel is an excellent educator, mentor, and musician. He was my student at Anderson University for four years. I highly recommend him to students!

His proficiency and musicianship is at a high level that I you can count on that he knows how to handle his instrument. He has a very patient and calm personality that a trumpet teacher should have to handle students. I very much recommend to have Andrew as a trumpet teacher for anyone starting and continue trumpet lessons. -Scott Cater, Director of the Reisterstown Jazz Ensemble and former trumpet teacher."
