Featured Astoria Trumpet Teachers

Jamison S

Instruments:

Jamie is a teacher, guitarist, singer/songwriter, saxophonist, and composing pianist.  His teaching career began at the age of fourteen, as a volunteer in the Songcatchers, Inc. program, teaching saxophone and piano to underprivileged children in New Rochelle, NY.  While completing his undergraduate education, Jamie continued to participate in Wind Symphony and Spacecataz, his own rock band, while teaching privately in Rochester, NY and Westchester County, NY.  In 2007 he completed an eight month internship in Artist Media and Marketing at Island Def Jam Music Group/Universal in Manhattan.  During the second half of his senior year at Rochester, he single handedly designed, produced, and taught the General Music Program for K-10 at Cornerstone Academy in Brockport, NY.  Following this, he completed an independent study on the modern music industry, and was awarded the first ever Bachelor of Arts Degree in Popular Music and Jazz from the University of Rochester, and its sister conservatory, the Eastman School of Music. In the last several years, Jamie has built a formidable private studio of students on guitar, saxophone, piano, trumpet, clarinet, composition, theory, and performance.  Jamie has produced and hosted a plethora of student recitals, and begun his Master of Arts Degree in Music Education at Hunter College, inclusive of the AVID tutoring program and Teacher Education Program.  His musical influences are varied, and include Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, Brahms, Reich, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, John Coltrane, Hank Mobley, Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Dylan, The Cars, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Tool, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, The Police, Say Anything, Journey, Rush, Jimmy Eat World, Motion City Soundtrack, Billy Joel, Goo Goo Dolls, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Alanis Morissette, John Mayer, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more.

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. 

Alicia A

Instruments:

I am extremely passionate about all styles of music and helping others build on their own innate musical abilities! Originally from Rhode Island, I began learning the piano and trombone at a very young age. Throughout high school I was presented with many amazing musical opportunities such as being selected for the All Eastern Honors Band. I attended Ithaca College where I graduated with two Bachelors of Arts degrees in Music Education and Trombone Performance. I currently live in Brooklyn, New York where I teach music and perform regularly with the Brooklyn Wind Symphony, Metropolitan Quintet, and many other funk, reggae, afrobeat, jazz, and rock groups. 

John W

Instruments:

I am a staunch advocate of music education and its implementation. In 2005, I graduated with my Master's Degree from Queens College with an expert understanding of all of the instruments in the orchestra. I know how to read, write, arrange, and perform music at the professional level. I can even give lessons on how to use music software such as Sibelius and Finale. Teaching music is my passion and I am eager to share that passion with others.

Chris B

Instruments:

Welcome to Mr. B's studio!  I am a twelve year veteran instrumental music teacher who truly loves educating young musicians.  I have performed and taught all over the country as a trombonist and educator.  Some of my career highlights include performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Tales & Scales Inc., Ray Charles and his orchestra, as well as working with numerous orchestras, chamber ensembles, and jazz ensembles in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  My biggest joy comes from my students achieving new heights in their own playing.

More Information About Trumpet Lessons

Trumpets are usually ranked as student, intermediate, and professional models. Most of the time, student trumpets are appropriate for beginning players. The pieces included in a trumpet are the rim, the cup, the mouthpiece, the shank, the leadpipe, the valve pistons, and the valve casings. Trumpets are usually ranked as student, intermediate, and professional models. Usually student trumpets are appropriate for beginning players.When purchasing a trumpet, it is important to visit a music store or speak with a trumpet expert to make sure you get the best value and the highest quality instrument. A large majority of students may choose to rent their instrument before purchasing. If you go this route, you will need to purchase your own mouthpiece to use with 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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's trumpet lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation, how to shape your lips and buzz, proper breathing and posture, how to develop a solid tone, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, how to read music: rhythms, note names, dynamics, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the trumpet!
Taking trumpet lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill. Many of our adult students may have played trumpet as a child, and want to pick it back up again. Adult students can generally notice a lot of progress in a short time, provided they are practicing every day between their lessons.
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.
