Featured Astoria Trumpet Teachers

Jonathan L

Instruments:

Growing up in the bustling suburbs of New York City, trumpeter Jon L was introduced to music at a very young age. Originally a classical player Jon began his studies in Nashville, TN where he attended Vanderbilt University.  While there Jon found his voice in jazz under the tutelage and support of studio musician and composer Billy Adair.  Jon then became a stalwart in the Blair Big Band as well as a huge proponent of the jazz program at the Blair School of Music. In 2008 Jon moved back to New York to attend New York University and to study full time with master pianist Mike Longo.  Since returning to New York Jon has had the opportunity to play at many of New York’s finest venues, such as The Blue Note Jazz Club, The Rockefeller Center Gardens, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Nokia Theater and BB Kings Blues Club.

David A

Instruments:

I am an enthusiatic and personable teacher with experience spanning 3 decades and 2 continents.   I graduated from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where I was a student of Anthony Marchione (former Principal Trumpet with the Columbia Symphony, and teacher of Randy Brecker and Lee Morgan).  In the classical field, I have worked directly with Leonard Bernstein on the Broadway show "1600 Pennsylvania Avenue" and have served as Principal Trumpet with the Colorado Philharmonic, the Concerto Soloists of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Orchestra Brass Quintet. In the commercial field, I have played trumpet for entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, Steve Lawrence & Edi Gorme,Michel Legrand, Nancy Wilson, Lena Horne, Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr, Diana Ross, The Spinners, The Temptations, and others.  My passion and practical experience in the music field make me well suited to guide students of all ages and help them to enjoy learning music at all levels and styles. My teaching studio is a large, open and finished space -  well suited accoustically to hearing ones true sound (important for development) and is complete with audio and video systems to aid in teaching through illustration as needed.  The student  will feel relaxed, focused and "at home" in this space.

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.

More Information About Trumpet Lessons

Beginner trumpets are relatively cheap and available through many music shops or instrument catalogs. Some music shops can also provide rentals. For the budget-conscious customer, used trumpets are also an option, but it is strongly recommended that the buyer purchase at least a new mouthpiece. Something to look for with a used trumpet is to be sure that the instrument can be taken apart and put together easily and is relatively free of dents. Our trumpet instructors can also help with the selection of an instrument and all the accessories required to keep it in great condition.
In home trumpet lessons are extremely convenient for parents and students alike. Studying in home is no different than studying in a studio. Lessons are generally once a week.
Our teachers create a custom lesson and technique plan for each student. For the most part, lessons will focus around learning how to hold and care for the instrument, how to prepare it for playing, how to read music, sight read, and basic musicianship skills. Students will also focus on mouth position and breath support to play the trumpet, and the location of the valves.
We have many adult students taking trumpet lessons. Learning this instrument is a great way for many adults to learn a new skill, and have fun in the process! In just a few lessons, our teachers can help you notice significant 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.
