Travis does a great job! I noticed an improvement after the first lesson my son had with him.
Levi
Travis is a wonderful, encouraging & enthusiastic teacher. My son (10) loves going there. He learns a lot and progresses quite quickly - and at the same time it’s always fun.
Hannah B.
Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

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.

About Dustin

Hi! My name is Dustin. I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students develop a talent and love for music. I went to West Virginia Wesleyan College and earned a degree in Music in 2012. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Really enjoyed my first class with Dustin! He is easy-going and knowledgeable. I liked how he explains the concepts and techniques. I am very much looking forward to the next lesson.

Dustin was prompt and worked well with my middle school aged-son. Had him engaged and motivated to practice!

I feel like he really understands my struggles and how to help me. Plus, he offered to transpose some pieces that I want to play on trumpet.

He's a great instructor!

Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Maureen is patient, always willing to answer questions and encouraging. She makes you want to try harder!

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!

"Mr. Gallo has been giving me lessons for over five years. I'm only 17 but I've learned so much that I could probably teach on my own. If you need help with learning how to play trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, whether you're a beginner or whether you want to learn more at an advanced level, Mr. Gallo is the man for the job."

"I can't express enough in words how wonderful Mr. Gallo is as a music instructor. He has been teaching both my boys trumpet for ten years now. My older son has achieved Superior Ratings in Solo and Ensemble for 6 years straight, was selected to perform with the All County Jazz Band for 3 years and contributed to MSD High School winning numerous awards in Jazz, Concert, Symphonic and Marching Band. My younger son started his first lessons last year (6th Grade) and achieved Superior Ratings on his first Solo and Ensemble. All of these accomplishments are due to Mr. Gallo's excellent teaching skills and the knowledge of how to get you or your child to reach their full potential. I strongly recommend Mr. Gallo to any parent or student who wants to learn from one of the best."

"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!"

There's never any pressure to master technique in a certain time frame. Jonny is a very accomplished musician and blends his knowledge from his different teachers to give his students a holistic and fun experience!"

"I completely stumbled onto lessons with Bobby through GS Music. It was the best piece of serendipity ever!
Bobby is one of the rare musicians who is both great at his instrument and also great at teaching. Most lessons started off with a review of the pieces from the previous lesson, areas to improve, followed by new exercises. Bobby was never limited to one technical manual and had numerous exercises and pieces of music at his finger tips to always inspire me. When my motivation was lacking regarding Clarke exercises Bobby even transcribed a few pieces I had chosen that the music did not exist for (Black Eyed Peas on trumpet!!!). Bobby was always on time (early) and completely prepared for the lesson. He knew the hangups with playing the trumpet and how to fix them.
What was even more amazing was I was able to sit in on the lesson before me that Bobby taught to a school aged kid. Bobby was completely adaptive and able to enthuse a kid who was clearly 1/4 my age!

I give Bobby my highest recommendation... something I rarely do."
