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

Rhonda probably the best teacher I have ever had! for the many years that she taught me the violin, guitar, and trombone. she was always patient especially from the time I was young all the way till I was an “adult” preparing me for concerts and solo acts. Rhonda is a master of all and if you told her that you wanted to be the best triangle player or the best trumpet player she would make it happen. If there was an instrument that she has never used that you wanted to learn she would indefinitely buy it, become a master within the week and begin to teach you. She truly is the most genuine and talented person I have ever had the pleasure to work with!
Craig
I was very pleased at the progress of my first lesson. Rhonda is very patient and goes above and beyond to make this a great experience. I am looking forward to our next lesson.
Emma
I began taking violin lessons from Rhonda at age 5 and eventually added guitar, mandolin, and an occasional vocal opportunity:) I learned so much from her over the years (approx 4) including proper technique, patience, & self discipline. I continue to be active in music & vocal performance in the community at age 18. Rhonda is a great teacher and person!

Private Trumpet Teacher

As a professional musician who has been gigging since 2010, I am proficient in a plethora of different styles of music. A self-taught jazz musician who has performed under the direction of world-renowned jazz composer, Maria Schneider. I have also had the privilege of performing with regional symphony orchestras such as the Lima Symphony (OH) and Adrian Symphony (MI).

As an educator, I have been teaching trumpet lessons privately since the summer of 2014. Additionally, I have been a graduate teaching assistant at two different Universities, Bowling Green State University, and the Ohio State University.

I focus my teaching on making sure students have a good foundation that we can build upon. Students will develop tools they can use in order to problem solve and develop their own methods of practicing.
