Featured Astoria Trumpet Teachers

Daryl D

Instruments:

Daryl began playing flute at the age of 11, as part of a middle school band class. His band instructor noticed his innate talent, and began to prepare him for studies at the Music Advancement Program at the Juilliard School. During this two year program, Daryl studied flute with Jayn Rosenfeld, played in chamber ensembles and orchestra, while also studying music history, music theory, and ear training. Daryl also made his concerto debut playing Vivaldi's "Il Gardellino" in the final year of the program. Daryl's time at MAP, prepared him for entry to the prestigious high school Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music and Art and the Performing Arts, where he was a flute instrumental music major. He continued to study with Jayn Rosenfeld during his freshmen year, while he played as principal flute player in the Bronx Burowide Band/Orchestra. He also was the Piccolo Soloist for Sousa's March "Stars and Stripes Forever". For the remainder of high school, he studied in the Honors Program at the Mannes College of Music Prepartory Division with Sue Ann Kahn. Daryl graduated high school serving one year as Piccolo Player in the Senior Symphonic Orchestra, and one year as Principal Flute Player of the Senior Symphoniy Orchestra, Senior Symphonic Band, and the Pit Orchestras of Ragtime and City of Angels. Daryl graduated from Mannes as the Philharmonic Piccolo Player. Daryl continued his music studies at Vassar College, where he studied with John Solum. Daryl continued his chamber music and orchestra playing, and won the Music Department's Concerto Competition in 2010, playing Borne's "Carmen Fantasy."  He was also chosen as a student soloist with Vassar's Modern Music Ensemble playing Ginastera's "Impresiones de la Puna." Daryl is currently taking one year off to prepare for graduate programs in flute performance.

Steve S

Instruments:

I am passionate about sharing the knowledge I have gained throughout my musical life from performing with Buddy Rich and Lionel Hampton to playing in Broadway pit bands. I believe its very important to teach the fundamentals as well as learning the freedom to improvise in any style which can be taught at the same time. I have 40 CDs released as leader or co-leader and over 100 releases as a sideman.

Ron C

Instruments:

Although most of my playing experience has been with rock bands, big bands and weddings, I have a B.A. in classical performance/music education from William Paterson University. Most of my private study has been with Dave Larson of the New Jersey Symphony and Dave Rogers, a William Paterson jazz adjunct. My classroom career began at the Passaic County Elks' Cerebral Palsy Center in Clifton, NJ, and in 2001 I moved to my present position as Elementary Music Teacher in Middlesex, NJ.  I love to play blues on my trumpet, but my latest passion is learning finger-picking on guitar. 

Jonathan S

Instruments:

I've lived in New York City my whole life, so all of my artistic and professional pursuits have occurred within one of the world's most culturally diverse and skill set demanding environments. I've been studying music for 15 years and have every intention of continuing my growth as an artist, as well as an educator. As a trumpeter, I have toured the United States and performed and recorded nationwide as well as internationally. As a teacher, I have taught masterclasses, clinics, and have given private and public instruction as part of after-school programs, camps, and private events. One of my main purposes in life is to play music for the sake of making music, and also to share music with people for the sake of their experience. 

John C

Instruments:

I have been involved with music my entire life. I play a variety of different instruments and offer lessons on flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, guitar and piano. I have performed on these instruments with numerous professional bands including: Frank Bennett Orchestras, The Moonlighters,The Zy Band, The Delivery Boys, Good Foot, Higher Authority, Cruisin' for a Bluesin', Gimme the Gun, The Gospel Shepherds,The Flying Mueller Brothers, Mason and Trux and Yasgar's Farm.

More Information About Trumpet Lessons

A trumpet has several parts: the rim, the cup, the mouthpiece, the shank, the leadpipe, the valve pistons, and the valve casings. Make sure all the parts of the trumpet are in good condition, and make sure to ask an expert or a store employee to make sure. Prices for trumpets can vary so it is important to have a budget in mind for what you can spend. Many students will rent the instrument for some time before purchasing. When trying out trumpets, many students chose to bring their own mouthpiece, as this is the most personal part of the trumpet.
Taking trumpet lessons in your home offers a great way to master your skills on the instrument without ever leaving your home! Many students and parents find this very convenient as there is no additional time for travel.
Each student will have a custom lesson plan created for them by their instructor. Our teachers will generally recommend specific method books that students can purchase for use in their lessons. Students will learn how to read music, how to sight read, musicianship skills, and the specific skills needed to play the trumpet and support the sound.
It is never too late to play an instrument. We have many adult students playing trumpet. Our teachers can work with you whether you are a beginner or advanced player. Many of our adult students notice significant progress in just a short time! It is important to practice every day between your lessons to notice the most progress.
Children are recommended to start the trumpet at age 7 or 8. A student needs to be able to hold and support the weight of the instrument for extended periods, and also have enough lung capacity to support the sound.
