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. 

Peter G

Instruments:

Hi! My name is Peter and I love to play, compose and teach music. In 2013, I graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Certificate in Jazz Performance. And in 2014, I completed a Masters of Music in Jazz Trombone from Stony Brook University while studying with Ray Anderson. I have over 7 years of experience teaching students of all ages, and over 10 years of experience playing in symphonic orchestras, wind ensembles, chamber orchestras, big bands, and jazz combos. I'm currently living in South Setauket, NY where I'm pursuing a D.M.A. and actively participating in the local music scene.

I play a variety of different instruments and offer lessons on flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, guitar and piano. I have performed on these instruments with numerous professional bands including: Frank Bennett Orchestras, The Moonlighters,The Zy Band, The Delivery Boys, Good Foot, Higher Authority, Cruisin' for a Bluesin', Gimme the Gun, The Gospel Shepherds,The Flying Mueller Brothers, Mason and Trux and Yasgar's Farm.  

Jasmine G

I'm a very kind and strongly motivated instructor who loves working with young students and inspiring them to become great musicians with my passion for music, no matter what aspect of music it is. I graduated from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education. While the flute is my primary instrument, woodwinds are my specialty. Thanks to all the internships and student teaching experience I have had over the last 5 years, I'm able to teach all instruments to all inquiring students.

More Information About Trumpet Lessons

A standard trumpet includes many pieces: the rim, the cup, the mouthpiece, the shank, the leadpipe, the valve pistons, and the valve casings. We recommend that when you are purchasing your first trumpet that you visit a music store and speak with a trumpet expert. Prices for trumpets can vary widely, so it is best to have a budget in mind. The majority of students choose to rent a trumpet before purchasing. As the mouthpiece of the trumpet is a very personal part of the instrument, if you are renting, you will need to invest in the mouthpiece portion.
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.
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 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.
