Private Trumpet Teacher

I've been studying trumpet for 15 years, and I'm eager to work with students of all ages. I will give students a firm foundation in trumpet fundamentals, while also focusing on what the student would like to learn. I specialize in jazz and contemporary music, though I am also trained in classical music.

"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."

"Bobby has a great talent for breaking down complicated music theory concepts and explaining precisely why they are important to your progression with the instrument. I started taking lessons with him after having taken a ten-year hiatus from the trumpet. During the first lesson, he was immediately able to identify where my abilities had eroded and gave me exercises to improve my technical skills. He also to helped me improve my sheet music reading skills, even transcribing some of my favorite songs into sheet music that I could memorize. I would highly recommend Bobby as an instructor. His enthusiasm for music and teaching is infectious!"

"Definitely recommend Dave as a Trumpet teacher! I'm a musician but had never played trumpet; Dave helped open a totally new side of my musicianship! He is so knowledgable not only in Jazz, but all other genres of music as well. Dave won't just make you a better trumpet player by focusing on technique and learning the instrument, but he'll also make you a better musician overall with his well rounded approach to music and theory. He is also just a super awesome guy and easy to get along with and feel comfortable around. Definitely recommend for any ages or skill levels!"

Mr. Talley was my teacher for 6 years. I learned a lot from him. He helped me make top ratings on all of my solos, and even though I don’t play any more now that I am grown, I know he helped me become a better person. He was a great teacher, and now he’s a great friend. He knew a lot of tricks to help me play better."
