Private Trumpet Teacher

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***

Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

Brian is an excellent teacher. His tone and clarity is fantastic, which is important as a student to hear for emulation purposes. He has a great handle on music theory and how to fundamentally make good sound, resulting in pleasing to listen to music.

Private Trumpet Teacher

Beginners are fun! For more advanced players, I specialize in teaching improvisation and soloing. Some trumpet students of mine also get into arranging and composing for orch, big band, or other brass ensembles.

Love it!

About Austin

I've been making music since I started piano lessons at 6 years old. I love teaching and have been doing so privately and in classroom settings throughout my career. My wife and are empty nesters of three children but no grandchildren yet... . Musically, I started with classical piano and progressed to jazz and pop music as a teenager. In junior high, playing trumpet in band progressed to playing bass in jazz ensemble. Finally, acoustic guitar satisfied my need for something to play songs with that was more portable than a keyboard. Initially, my desire to be a studio session musician resulted in pursuing a wide variety of musical skills, instruments, and segments of the music world. From arranging and composing for orchestra and rap albums, to audio engineering/consulting and music typesetting, my experience became very di

verse. Loving so many styles of music, I played professionally such diverse things as salsa piano, folk guitar, jazz bass, and funk drumming. I also love teaching and have developed curricula for several schools as well as guest-taught at numerous universities and conferences.

career highlights:
-international touring with multiple artists and bands, 45 countries
-record producer with 100+ projects and developed producer curriculum for audio trade school
-conference speaker and guest university instructor all over the world teaching music and creativity
-skill on multiple instruments and styles as well as extensive experience in the world of audio and teaching music theory

teaching highlights:
I traveled quite a bit as a guest teacher/speaker, so an exhaustive list is not practical. Some highlights include:

-Oral Roberts University - Tulsa (8 years in multiple roles)
-Southeastern University - Florida
-MediaTech Institute - Texas
-LPI Hernhutt - Germany (3 months)
-Created to Worship - England (2 years)
-and of course, numerous conferences, clinics, workshops all over the place

I've been asked numerous times "how many instruments do you play?" Well, I can get around on most anything. However, I don't play anything bowed (like violin or cello) nor the steel guitar. The instruments I teach are those I have the most background and have played professionally with.

Please contact me if you have any questions, I would love to talk with you!

My 6 years old son wanted to take piano lessons and it was always my dream to learn to play on piano as well. I am happy we found Austin. He has skills and patience to work with kids, which is impressive. Austin motivates and encourages them, so they enjoy playing. I am enjoying learning piano as well and my dream is coming true!!!

I have been taking online trumpet lessons with Vinnie for years now. I have also studied in person with Vinnie, and played in Vinnie's band. I feel so lucky to be able to take lessons from one of the best trumpet players in the world. Vinnie has helped me progress in many areas including jazz improvisation. Vinnie has a warm personality and is very patient. In my 50 years of playing trumpet, Vinnie is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Vinnie plays so well, and performs in so many places all over the world, I can't even begin to describe his personal talent. However, on a personal level, he is easy to relate to and study with.

I have known Vinnie for 35 years in the world of music. He is a colleague that I hold in the highest regard. I have had the great pleasure of performing alongside him in a number of different situations. As a sideman we have performed music on an extremely high level, everything from Jazz Standards, originals, to Weather Report etc. Vinnie's abilities as trumpeter and educator are tremendous, world class all across the board. He is great reader and his improvisation is of the highest order, creative, inventive, with thematic development and harmonic depth in the single line.

I have known, performed with, and taught with Vincent for over thirty years. I am a professional trombonist and the Performing Arts Chair at Saddle River Day School. I ran an Arts-In-Education band that performed big band jazz at schools in the NYC area for over twelve years, and Vincent was a band member. Vincent is one of the world's greatest trumpet players and jazz improvisers, and he is an excellent communicator. I have watched Vincent teach countless times, and he loves working with young people and passing along his craft and experience. He has a very warm personality and a great sense of humor. I perform regularly with Vincent in a variety of world-class ensembles, and just standing next to him on the band-stand is like taking a lesson!

Private Trumpet Teacher

2 years of professional experience, specializing in the beginner/intermediate trumpet student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more.

About Anthony

I teach most brass instrumentalists of all different ages mainly at a beginning to intermediate level. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play classical music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

I am currently studying at the College of Southern Maryland for Music theory and performance in French Horn. I have been playing French Horn, Mellophone, trumpet and Flute for 6 years at a Recreational level along with 2 years of French Horn and Mellophone at a professional level. I've been given the opportunity to travel across the East Coast as a performer for a World-Class Drum Corps International group known as The Cadets. We've performed in places such as Lucas Oil, J. Birney Crum, and Camping World Stadium.

My personal passion is classical 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!

Private Trumpet Teacher

Teaching and playing professionally for 5 years, I know what it takes to be fluent and adaptable on the trumpet. Each lesson is structured around the specific needs of each student, whether a total beginner or picking the instrument up again after years off. With a measured breathing strategy, to exercises on improving flexibility and range, we will work to strengthen all aspects of playing and musicality. Send me a message and we will see if were a good fit. Looking forward to talking to you!

About Matthew

As a Music Educator, Music Director, and a Music Education coordinator, my passion lies in helping people access and perform music. I believe correct and healthy technique unlocks a world of musicality. I also know learning music is at its best when the process is fun and progress can be felt every lesson.

Students will improve week to week in both their playing and their comprehensive understanding of music. With an emphasis placed on ear training, theory, and sight-reading, students will find themselves quickly excelling in the areas of their choice. I teach students of all ages and levels. Whether you're touching the instrument for the first time, or have played for years, I will help us create a curriculum and a goal plan to effectively make music.

Additionally, I have a background in early childhood musical development and believ

e structured fun and play are the key to long term musical success. If you are a parent interested in your child learning and sticking with an instrument, I can give you the skills and tools to have a musical home for a lifetime.

Your musical goals are the most important to me and I can't wait to talk more and see what we can do together!

"My son thoroughly loved his lessons with Aaron. Aaron spoke to him a respectful and sensitive way while challenging him to push farther than he ever did
in his school band class. We are only stopping lessons because we are going on vacation and will not be back until the new school year has begun. With a new school and an new schedule, I am hoping to be able to continue lessons with Aaron in the future."

Jennifer
"He is very knowledgeable and professional! I’m relearning the basics and his sessions have been very helpful to me. I plan to continue!"
Parker
"Excellent first lesson! My 10 year old said it was fun and from what I observed it was informative. Caleb seems to have a great positive attitude and grea
t approach! Looking forward to more lessons!"
...
Jack Strotz
"Caleb has been my son’s trumpet instructor for almost 6 months now. He has a keen ability to get across everything needed for a highly effective online le
sson. I cannot tell you what a HUGE convenience it's been for us to have these expert lessons in the comfort and convenience of our home. I would have to drive 45 minutes over a mountain pass to get to the nearest qualified instructor. In the middle of snowstorms, and even with my son in p.j.'s, we can have our lesson right here at home. In an ordinary lesson environment a parent usually is expected to leave the room. With Caleb, I can be nearby while my son receives his lesson. This is helpful for me to reinforce points that Caleb made during his lesson with my son when he is practicing during the week. Currently he's working with my son on his honor jazz band audition, as well as a classical oratorio piece that he'll be playing on tour in Europe with our local community orchestra. Caleb is qualified to teach any style of music. He’s super friendly but never loses his honesty with the student. We often have special requests for each lesson and Caleb is able to tailor each lesson to work on the new pieces and still fit in valuable instruction with scales and solid technique. Not only is Caleb a great teacher, but he is on many professional recordings, and is a regularly-working professional musician in Chicago. My son is very lucky to have him as an instructor. We're very impressed with Caleb and know you will be too!"

Jane
"He's a great teacher! Patient, organized, articulate and inspiring. I like how his lessons are put together and the music we are working on."
Barbara
"My 9 year-old son has been enjoying his trumpet lessons with Caleb a lot. Caleb is nice and patient, which is very encouraging for children. He is also
easy to communicate with, very flexible and always on time. I highly recommend him for younger clients."

Ricardo
"I just love the fact of how patient you are with Andy thank you so much"
Scott
"INSPIRATION!!! I have been now, taking lessons from Jordan for 6 months. Each time I leave my finish with him, I am disappointed that I have run out of
time. I've extended my lesson time, and it never is enough. As I depart, I am excited and inspired to continue on to do better than the last time. Three days after my lesson, I find myself counting the days to my next lesson.

Jordan has my highest recommendation for leadership, and education. A fine instructor, and an enjoyable inspiration. He will not disappoint."
...
Jonathan
"Jennifer is an excellent instructor. She came to our home and worked with my middle school son on trumpet. My son was struggling with his technique and
was frustrated with the school band program. Jennifer's teaching style is one of positive encouragement and incredible patience. She took the extra time to find music of interest to my son to enhance and make the lessons fun, especially due to his frustration with some of the more boring pieces of music assigned through the school. I highly recommend Jennifer!"
