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.

My teaching philosophy is centered around the personal enjoyment that the student experiences while performing on their instrument. Every student is different, and I focus my lessons around the specific needs for each student. My teaching strategy is a cumulation of over ten years of teaching music for grades 5-12, and together we will create the most enjoyable experience performing the trumpet.

Online Trumpet Teacher

I have 20+ years of experience playing trumpet and have played in a variety of ensembles (concert band, jazz band, marching band, orchestra, rock/soul). Given my Michigan public school teaching experience, I am adept at teaching all levels of trumpet from beginning to advanced. Our trumpet lessons will focus on the fundamentals (buzzing, lip slurs, technique) but will also cover more creative concepts (phrasing, improvisation).

About Andy

My name is Andy and I am a musician, educator, and composer in the metro-Detroit area. After picking up the trumpet 20 years ago in 5th grade band class, I became enthralled with the way music spurs our sense of community and creativity. I have taught as a Michigan public school music teacher for

Online Trumpet Teacher

Throughout my time at Berklee, NEC, and now Juilliard, I have studied with many great teachers and musicians from Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Henderson, Kenny Barron, Tiger Okoshi, John McNeil, and Laurie Frink to Jerry Bergonzi, and Miguel Zenon. The diverse subjects we went over in lessons and classes gives me a unique knowledge of certain styles and musical ideas. I try to be as personal and individual as I can when it comes to teaching students. That was the thing that stood out amongst my favorite teachers.

About David

Dave is a very patient teacher. You can tell he is passionate about music and the trumpet from the way he interacts during a lesson. I look forward to every week when I take my lessons, and it has been such a fun hobby during these crazy times because of Covid-19.

David is an amazing player and teacher. The lesson was not only fun but incredibly informative as well. David's friendly teaching style really helps keep the learning environment friendly and approachable. Anyone would be lucky to study with him!

While I love to perform, one of my greatest passions is teaching! I'm an expert at instilling confidence in my students and assisting those who want to take their playing to the next level.

Jennifer is an amazing teacher – she's very flexible and adapts to the needs of the student. She also has a way of making it fun to practice, rather than feeling like a chore. She tries to explain methods in different ways to find the one that resonates best with me. I highly recommend her!

First I was skeptical about online classes. After three classes, I am glad I chose the online classes with Andrew. Here is the input from my son for the review >>> He answers questions well. He gives great strategies for playing trumpet. He also gives great insights before/after following his tips. <<<"

Bobby presents his lesson in a way that is easy to understand. He takes the time to explore what my difficulties are. Then he presents me with ways to challenge them. Bobby also has a good understanding of music theory. He explains and demonstrates musical concepts very thoroughly."
