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.

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.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
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!
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.
