Featured Far rockaway 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.

Donald M

Instruments:

Donald's eclectic approach to music is one best described as unique. Raised in an environment where music was as much a part of life as breathing, Donald developed his musical identity like a child goes through his adolescent years. Growing up in the Ifa tradition, Donald’s first musical experience was with traditional “African Praise Music” playing the drums and singing. Later he learned to play the trumpet through the Cleveland Hts. School system and quickly gravitated toward jazz. By the age of 18 Donald had performed with Terence Blanchard, John Clayton, Jeff Clayton, Bobby Watson, and Winard Harper. After graduating Cleveland Hts. High and Cuyahoga Community College simultaneously, Donald was awarded a scholarship at the esteemed Oberlin Conservatory. There he studied with jazz greats like Marcus Belgrave, Billy Hart, and Gary Bartz. While pursuing his studies Donald continued to demonstrate his musical talents. He performed with such greats such as, Gerald Wilson, Billy Hart, Marcus Belgrave, Jimmy Heath, Eric Lewis, Frank Foster, Roscoe Mitchell, Donald Byrd and the Jazz Heritage Orchestra to name a few. It was at this time that Donald became aware of his gift for composition. He was commissioned to compose the piece Stark Winters for the independent film Man Cry. He also composed a four movement suite for the Jazz Heritage Orchestra entitled Spirit of New Orleans. Upon graduating from Oberlin, Donald furthered his education as a graduate student at Rutgers University. There he was mentored by, the legendary William Fielder. Since his move to New York City, Donald has had the honor of performing with such greats as Geri Allen, Victor Lewis, Frank Lacey, Michele Rosewoman, Cecil Brooks III, Mike Mossman, The Drifters, Eddie Palmieri, Conrad Herwig, and Frank Sinatra Jr. Donald, also will be in the new film by producer Michael Hausman (The Firm, Broke Back Mountain, Amadeus) called Downtown Express where his song Juanita from his new album The Mothers will be heard. In March of 2009, Donald released his debut album "Spiritualtiy" with his cutting edge band SIGHT. Here, he has revisited his spiritual roots, combining the music for the Orisha (African deities of the Yoruba people) and jazz. Each song on the album embodies different aspects of the Spirit, be it love, femininity, masculinity, aggression, destiny or wisdom. These energies represent different aspects of God, and through this music, the creator is praised. SIGHT has now recorded their second album that will be released in March 2011 called, "The Mothers".

Helena L

Instruments:

Born and raised in NYC, I began my musical training quite early as a professional singer and clarinet player in the band program in middle school, ultimately graduating from The High School of Music and Art (LaGuardia, "Fame"). While there, my sister and I sang with a girl that later became famous and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. I continued my musical education both in school and performing in genres of classical, rock, pop, Gospel, r&b, soul, and folk. A true mix!! Songwriting came later and currently, I have two CD's of my own with original material on both. I've been teaching all ages from 8-88 since I was 18 as a private music teacher and coach, in private and public schools and community centers. I created workshops and shows for my student's participation. Whether it's singing, learning piano, orchestral instuments or songwriting, I am delighted to bring my students where they aspire to reach.

More Information About Trumpet Lessons

Pieces of the trumpet are as follows: the rim, the cup, the mouthpiece, the shank, the leadpipe, the valve pistons, and the valve casings. Before purchasing the instrument, be sure the pieces are all in good condition, and ask an expert to verify. Be sure to have a budget in mind, as prices for trumpets can vary widely. A lot of students will rent the instrument before purchasing. Many will choose to bring their own mouthpiece for when they are trying out trumpets.
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.
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 generally begin to learn the trumpet at age 7 or 8. We suggest this age, because the student needs to be able to hold the instrument correctly and support its weight. The students fingers need to be the right size to play instrument, and the child needs to have enough lung capacity to support the sound of this instrument.
