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.

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.

I first picked up the trumpet in the 4th grade. I’ve spent a lifetime learning the instrument, making a living playing it, teaching others to play it. Now I’d like to help you.

Hi I'm Rick and in your lesson you will learn:

The fundamentals of good trumpet playing. You will learn not just what to practice, but how to practice. I will help you with breathing and how to use your air effectively. You will learn how to develop a great sound - your sound. I will help you improve your range, flexibility, and endurance. You will develop new skills, build on your existing ones, learn new songs, and have more fun playing trumpet.

When we first meet, I will want to hear you play - just to see where your playing is at - and we’ll talk - do you have specific goals?, what do you want to learn? This will give us a good starting point.

I welcome students of all ages and abilities, from absolute beginner to aspiring professional. Schedule your lesson now. I offer a wide variety of booking ...

Rick is an outstanding trumpet player and teacher. Highly recommended...
John
I met Rick over 25 years ago when I moved to Honolulu while touring with Paul Anka. Rick and I became fast friends and played many jobs together ranging from classical to big band to Broadway to backing up the Temptations and Johnny Mathis. His wide range of experience across all styles of trumpet playing would be a huge asset to any student. His easygoing demeanor is a plus for being a great teacher.
Brien
After touring with Tom Jones for ten years, I moved to Hawaii, where I met Rick. Many times for many years, we would practice together. During those sessions, we would critique and discuss each others' playing. Rick was always very good at assessing what I was doing, and was consistently able to put into words what I needed to hear. We were in essence, giving each other lessons, and I gained a lot from Rick's expertise.

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

Our first lesson was a success!
Luca B.
First lesson online with Steven. My 13 yo son was positive about his experience. They took the time to talk trombone & listen to Other artists trombone music. This approach was a natural and appropriate hook em’ for my son. Looking forward to the hands on playing and making music together in subsequent lessons.

Vivian makes learning the clarinet fun and I look forward to every lesson. She has already taught me new notes and songs after just five lessons. She was also open to incorporating music from my favorite movies (Harry Potter) into my lesson plans. The music is more advanced for me and so I really appreciate Vivian’s patience and her demonstrations so I know exactly what to play for each song. I’m glad to have Vivian as my teacher.
Carolyn
My 12 year old son has been taking clarinet lessons with Vivian for almost two months. At his first lesson he could barely play one note. I've been so impressed with his improvement every week. My son says, "she's very helpful and understanding." We highly recommend!
Suzanne Konkle
My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Vivian. She provides a warm and supportive environment for learning. I can definitely see improvement in my daughter's skill level.

"I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman"
