I strive to give my students all the tools they need to become complete musicians who can play, listen and connect with music on an active level. I work with my students to develop a strong technical foundation on their instrument, from which we can explore harmony, rhythmic training, ear training and theory. Beginner students will eventually be able to read and interpret sheet music, improvise, learn songs by ear, and compose music. Advanced students will gain the skills to become not just a great brass player, but a great artist.
I use a wide variety of old and new methods for trumpet. The fundementals are without a doubt very important and crucial to playing trumpet. As we work on these techniques I will be assiging trumpet solo repertoire which will apply many if not all of the fundemental trumpet techinques. Incorporating other material a student would like to learn outside of regular trumpet repretoire is important to me was well. Music comes in a wide variety of styles and incorporating any of these styles help any stupid become a well rounded musician.
I enjoy hearing the students natural abilites, see what he likes, understand what kind of music pours out of them, acknowledge that, and from there develop it. At the same time direct the student with technique, theory and any other tool that will faciltate the music he is passionate about. Give the students homework, let them know that there is always another step, to lead by example!
I'm very passionate about what I do. Music and performance has been apart of my life since before I was born. Learning how to sing at the age of 2, playing instruments and writing songs since 8, and learning to produce and engineer at 15 are some of the things that I am proud of. My greatest accomplishment thus far is not all that I know, but the fact that I learned so much based off of other instruments and findings. Music truly is universal.
I use a variety of published methods depending on the age of the student and their current level.

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. The trumpet instructors in our network can also help with the selection of an instrument and all the accessories required to keep it in great condition.
Trumpet lessons in home are a convenient way to learn the instrument. In home lessons are structured the same way as in-studio and there is no additional travel time. The teachers in our network generally teach students one lesson a week, however frequency of the lessons can vary from student to student and may be scheduled based on recommendation of the instructor.
Many adult students choose to take the trumpet, even without any previous experience. Trumpet can be a wonderful instrument to learn for the first time and a lot of progress can be made as long as the student is practicing! It takes a lot of lung capacity and skill to play trumpet making it a fun and challenging instrument to learn.
The teachers in our network can create a custom lesson and technique plan for each student. For the most part, lessons will focus on learning how to hold and care for the instrument, and prepare it for playing. Students will also focus on mouth position, breath support and the location of the valves. Sight reading along with music theory will also be taught.
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 have enough lung capacity to support the sound as well.

Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Kaleen Todoroff
Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

My daughter, Valarie is one of the original members of the Enrichment Center Percussion Ensemble under the guidance of Aaron. He patiently worked with Valarie as well as the other five members individually and as a group to produce music that has been shared and enjoyed locally as well as nationally. He has the ability to seek out the strengths of each student while building confidence. Through his teachings, not only had Valarie learned how to produce and enjoy music, but also responsibility and so many life skills for everyday living.

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
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.
