Overview:
Hey, you can call me Mike. I was an excellent student in school and college with a 3.92/3.82 GPAs and my Bachelor's Degree is in Music Education. Of all the environments I've taught in, my favorite is one-on-one. I love changing my style to fit the student. I have played trumpet for 13 years and studied it actively for 10. I have taught music to children, youth, adults, and seniors in one-on-one, small group, and classroom settings. Though my main instrument is trumpet, I can teach any band instrument up through High School level, as I play all of them. I have perfect pitch, and I'm a whiz at music theory. I scored a 5 on the Music Theory AP Test and tested out of 2 years of Music Theory and Ear Training in college. Are you ready to go to the next level?! Let's schedule an intro visit and see what a good fit we are.

EXPERIENCE
I have played trumpet for 13 years and studied it actively for 10. I have taught music to children, youth, adults, and seniors in one-on-one, small group, and classroom settings. Experience includes: Instrumental groups, after school music program, orchestra, band, choir, as well as private trumpet, euphonium, french horn, and trombone lessons. Though my main instrument is trumpet, I can teach any band instrument up through High School level, as I play all of them. I teach at my home studio, your home, or online.
METHODS USED
My approach centers around student goals. My desire is to assist you to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve. My main focus generally is on pure and powerful tone production through proper use of embochure, air support, and posture. As tonality improves, playing becomes a joy and confidence to be heard increases. To increase musical reading ability, I use a combination of aural, visual, nominal or mechanical approaches, depending on the learning style of the student. I generally use common trumpet literature unless the student has a preference otherwise.
LESSON STYLE
I am dynamic and passionate. I'm the type of guy that will stand up and whoop because of an embochure breakthrough or something. If I had the choice to teach trumpet or not and still make a living, I would choose to teach trumpet anyway. How many people can say that about their job?! I love when parents and siblings get to hear what students are playing and their improvement, whether that's formally or just hearing the elephant at home. In general, I get excited when the student get's excited. That's the reward for me.

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.
