Every dedicated musician knows that the best way to learn about your craft is to learn from someone who has first hand experience with it. There are some things that you cannot learn on your own that are vital to professional success. I have spent many hours studying with private instructors learning the "secrets" of the trumpet told by those who have first hand knowledge. If you take lessons with me, you too will learn those secrets.
My instruction, being mostly geared towards middle and high school students, is based upon the fundamentals of trumpet playing. I believe that in order to be successful at playing the trumpet you must have a solid foundation of technique to build your musical skill upon. I focus on fundamentals such as sound development, articulation, range, tuning, and control to prepare a young student for an intense college music program. I am also a firm believer of listening and emulating. I always play along with my students and demonstrate the correct approaches.
In addition to teaching middle and high school students, I also love teaching come-back players! I follow an easy step-by-step approach and center your instruction around your schedule and abilities to create a routine that is perfect for YOU!
