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.

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. 

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
