I have gladly devoted the past 20 years of my life to understanding this wonderful instrument.

About Tom
I've performed and taught in a wide variety of settings. My early professional experiences have included 3 years in the Army Band, several cruise line contracts, and freelance work as a performer and composer. Through these times, I've learned to excel in many styles. I recently graduated from NYU, where I was an adjunct faculty member. Here, I also performed and worked with a wonderful faculty including Kenny Werner, Brian Lynch, Chris Potter, Ralph Alessi, Tony Moreno, and trumpet guru Laurie Frink, who all inspire me as a musician and a teacher. While in New York, I was a faculty member at Douglaston School of Music and Art, where I worked with younger students .

It is my belief that discipline and technique are necessary elements that allow emotion and creativity to thrive. I also recommend a healthy dose of listening to what
you love. Through this process, I strive to inspire my students, fellow musicians, and listeners.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will guide you to your goals. I write my own materials for each student's individual goals. If you want to learn a song and I don't know it, I will learn the song with you, sharing the process. After several months of study, you will have an understanding of not only what to practice, but how and why to practice.

Tom is an amazing person, super patient and positive. My 13 year old wants to join his school band next year so we were lucky to find Tom. He’s in a great location and easy to get to.

Tom was AWESOME! I had a heck of a time finding someone who actually teaches Bugle. I have only had one lesson with Tom however, I am very excited to continue with him. Tom did not rush anything, he didnt watch the clock, he actually wanted to do more playing than talking about this form, music theory etc. etc. I had experienced with other Teachers. Everyone wants to start playing "something" as soon as possible and Tom dove right in to playing or trying to get me to play, HaHa in just the first 20min.

Please note that I only take serious students who will practice at least 30 minutes every day or 35 a day 6 days a week at home. I would like you to keep a log of how much you practice. This will enable you to make progress through the curriculum as you will be a beginner for the first 3.3 years, an intermediate for the next 3.3 years, and then an advanced student for 3.3 years. I will give you assignments to do over the week, and the next week we will go over them, learn something new and get new assignments. It takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert!

Dr. Spranza is one of the best piano teachers in the Bay Area. My two daughters take weekly lessons with her. She encourages them and empowers them to do their best. She teaches them both theory and practicals. They have participated in an informal recital and are now registered to take part in the MTAC Certificate of Merit program.

As parents, we see a big improvement in our daughters' piano playing skills. They even practice on their own, without us telling them to. All thanks to Dr. Spranza.

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

The Colony, TX
View Full Profile

Trumpet is a wonderful instrument for both the young and young-at-heart. I have been playing trumpet for most of my life, and teaching it for 14 years.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

*** Specialties ***

Clarinet

Tammye has been my daughters piano teacher going on five years now. She is laid back and my daughter has always enjoyed playing the piano. She has never dreaded lesson or asked to not play. I've heard of some kids crying after lessons and this has never ever been the case with Tamye. My daughter started out loving lessons with Tamye and still does... she is in middle school now. She has never felt pressured. She has always come away from the lessons having learned something new and now plays beautifully. This year my five year old boy has started lessons with Ms. Tammye and he also is enjoying them. Tamye has been the perfect teacher for our family. We took a summer break to try out a local music school (same price and we had to drive there) and it didn't compare to the quality we get with Ms. Tammye. As long as our kids are playing piano they'll be having Ms. Tammye as their teacher.

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

Learn how to play your trumpet correctly and fun songs also.

Proper lip technique and fingerings. Note reading and dynamics and more.

If you play in school or just want to pick up a trumpet and learn how to play.

About Paul
***My goal as a teacher***

I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.

I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Toddlermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his lyrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.

***Background***

I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wi
sconsin School Music Assoc.) for many years which taught me a lot about performing for judges, being relaxed, and the importance of preparation.

I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.

***College and Teaching***

I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.

***Life in Music***

After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.

***Performing and more***

I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.

I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.

***Instruments Taught***

I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
* guitar (electric / acoustic)
* piano
* voice
* drums
* trumpet
* saxophone
* harmonica
* music theory / ear training
* studio recording / songwriting

I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.

I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).

I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

I meet Paul about three months ago, While not a complete beginner, I had tried to teach myself thru out the years and picked up a lot of bad habits. Paul helped me to see and fix my habits. Paul is a very qualified teacher, of many instruments, drums, keyboards, guitar, and others. I'm 59 years old, Paul doesn't mind my age, doesn't treat me like I'm too old to learn new stuff. And is more than willing to see me thru complete guitar instruction. Thanks Paul...

How does your service stand out?

I have a lifelong passion for music, and specifically, trumpet. I am grateful for the opportunity I had as a young musician to study under high caliber professionals.

While I love to perform, one of my greatest passions is teaching! I'm really good at instilling confidence in my students and assisting those who want to take their playing to the next level. I cater my lessons individually to each of my students and am an excellent problem-solver. Even ONE lesson can make a difference.

About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer and I have been a private trumpet instructor for over 15 years. I am a graduate of Arizona State University (home to one of the most prestigious trumpet studios in the country) where I studied with world-renowned soloist and instructor, David Hickman. I also started a Masters at Boise State where I studied with Marcelus Brown (featured on Oprah!)

I have performed with several professional orchestras and currently play principal with the East Valley Millennial Orchestra here in Mesa/Gilbert. My trumpet-playing is featured on several of their albums including "O Holy Night" and "To Be American."

From 2007-2010 I taught collegiate-level private trumpet instruction at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher. I am published with the International Trumpet Guild Journal Jr. and I have a trumpet sextet published through Hi
ckman Music Editions, which has been performed by colleges all over the country as well as at several International Trumpet Guild Conferences. I currently co-write piano accompaniments and transcriptions and manage the production of music for Lindsey Stirling Music, Musicnotes, and Hal Leonard.

While I love to perform, one of my greatest passions is teaching! I'm really good at instilling confidence in my students and assisting those who want to take their playing to the next level. Even ONE lesson can make a difference. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to working with you!

I am an avid performer and teacher of 10 years, and I love working with students to accomplish their musical goals! Whatever goals my student has -- be it solo repertoire, études, orchestral excerpts, jazz and improvisation, chamber music -- I have had experience performing and am comfortable incorporating my student's goals in their lesson experience. I love to listen to my students ideas and opinions about music-making; I always learn a little something new in every lesson I teach. I am comfortable working with all ages and skill levels. Interested? Send me a message so we can chat!

About Krystal
I have been teaching private trumpet lessons since 2006 and have been playing professionally for nearly as long. I received my Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Music Education (505, 506) from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2009. I spent a year teaching privately and gigging, and went back to school for my Master of Music in 2010. I graduated from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2013 with my Master of Music in Trumpet Performance and Wind Conducting. I spent my time at UW-M as a Graduate Conducting Associate and Teaching Assistant, working with students ranging from middle school through post-college. Since then, I have been maintaining a regular trumpet studio and freelancing in southeast Wisconsin.

I have performed in a wide variety of groups and ensembles throughout the years; consequently, I am comfortable teaching a
wide variety of styles to a variety of age groups. I have performed with the Madison Chamber Orchestra, Madison Symphony Orchestra, Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra, and the Milwaukee Philharmonic. I am a regular member with Milwaukee Festival Brass, a European-style brass band, as principal solo cornet, as well as the Beloit-Janesville Symphony on Principal Trumpet. Contrastingly, I also freelance regularly with New Orleans-style brass bands similar to Mama Digdown’s Brass Band, jazz ensembles (I am an active member in the East Side Jazz Orchestra), funk and blues bands, in ensembles accompanying professional choirs, and for religious services in the Milwaukee area.

My daughter has been taking trumpet lessons with Krystal for many years and loves her time with her. She is professional in all ways and has limitless knowledge of the instrument. My daughter has faced a few challenges since starting and Krystal has gotten her through them all, working with her to prepare my daughter to audition for and be placed as one of the youngest students in our local community youth orchestra, as well as earn first ratings on her district solos. She is beyond accommodating with our hectic schedule, which is incredibly rare for a private instructor. Krystal is a huge reason my daughter loves playing as much as she does and I cannot recommend her enough. As a parent, the most important aspects I require in a private instructor are a love of music and a love of teaching. Krystal embodies these both, and we are lucky to have found her.
