Javi is a young, aspiring artist and visionary. Originally hailing from Minneapolis, MN, he grew up surrounded by strong artistic support.

His music is an eclectic blend of genres including jazz, hip hop, rock, R&B and others. Javi started playing piano at the age of 5, and was classically trained until he discovered his love of jazz music. In high school, he was a prominent player on the Twin Cities music scene and started his production career making tracks for Twin Cities hip hop artists. He won the Schubert Club Jazz Piano Scholarship Competition two years in a row (’06, ’07). He took the piano chair in the Minnesota Youth Jazz Band (’05-’07) and the Dakota Combo (’07 with Bobby Watson). In 2007, Javier was selected by the great Dave Brubeck and a panel of judges, in an international search, to be a part of the Brubeck Institute Fellowship program in California. Since then he has played at venues all across the nation and studied with some of the best instrumentalists in the world. The Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet (’08-’09) won Best College Group Of the Year in DownBeat Magazine two years in a row (2009 and 2010). Javi received his bachelor’s degree in piano performance in late 2011 at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. Not only is Javi a virtuosic pianist, but also a producer, composer, arranger and educator as well.

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.

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.
In home trumpet lessons offer a convenient option for learning to play the instrument for most students. The lessons will be structured the same way as in-studio lessons and will generally be once a week.
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.
We love adult students! We have adults who begin trumpet lessons as complete beginners, some who haven't played their trumpet in over 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
We suggest starting trumpet lessons at age 7 or 8. A student should be able to hold the instrument correctly, so their fingers must be large enough to do this. Playing trumpet also requires significant lung capacity, which can be difficult for a younger child.
