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".

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.

Additionally, Mr. Curtin has enjoyed several performances at Carnegie Hall, most recently as Assistant Principal Trumpet of the National Collegiate Wind Ensemble in 2009, under the baton of H. Robert Reynolds.   Since returning to New York in early 2013, Mr. Curtin has enjoyed performing and teaching in the Greater New York City Area and looks forward to working with and helping students reach their musical goals. 

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. 

Sem E

Instruments:

I gratuated from an urban school in Orange, NJ and was given the opportunity to attend Seton Hall University and graduate with a degree in Music Education on schloarships alone. Because of this, I understand what hard work means. You will find me to be an easy-going person, and one that possesses a love of music and an enjoyment of working with people. I believe I could help students develop their talents while fostering their passion for music.

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.
Trumpet lessons in home are a convenient way to learn an instrument. In home lessons are structured the same way as in-studio and there is no additional travel time. Our teachers generally teach students one lesson a week.
Taking trumpet lessons is a great way for a child to get started learning music. The trumpet is very portable, so as long as you have a nice sturdy case, it can be transported to and from school and rehearsals with ease. Many students who are studying in a band ensemble in their school program, will also wish to take private lessons to enhance their playing. In lessons students will learn how to read music, rhythms, and the technique of playing trumpet.
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.
Our recommended starting age for the trumpet is 8. The instrument requires a good amount of lung capacity as well as physical strength in the muscles around the mouth. While a younger student could possibly be physically able to play the instrument, this is somewhat rare.
