We highly recommend Franklin! My son who is learning to play the trumpet stated “Franklin is very encouraging but also means business” and I agree. Franklin is everything we had hoped for in a music teacher. My son is making good progress and really enjoys his lessons.
Franklin has taught my 11 year old son the trumpet for a couple of years now. I’m so impressed at the progress that has been made and the mastery of songs accomplished. My son seems to respond very well to Franklin’s teaching style. He is very patient and is extremely professional. I think my son respects him very much. I would highly recommend Franklin as a teacher!!
Great trumpet teacher! Franklin is very patient with my boy and very good at teaching. My boy really enjoys taking lessons with Franklin. Would strongly recommend Franklin to anyone who is looking for a trumpet teacher.
Our daughter really likes Franklin's teaching style of demonstrating each of the new trombone positions and notes that she is learning.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
