I have 30+ years experience working with trumpet students at all levels and helping them to have success in their trumpet playing! I assess each student´s ability and find out what their current playing level is and go from there. I have started many beginners from scratch, worked with intermediate players to correct/solve common playing problems and have worked with advanced high school trumpeters to prepare for honors band and college auditions. I have also worked with adults who wanted to get back into playing shape with their horns for their own enjoyment.

In addition to my teaching experience, I have played professionally in many different musical groups including big bands, New Orleans/Dixieland Jazz Bands, brass quintets and military/concert bands.

I enjoy working with students of all levels and backgrounds and frequently supplement teaching methods with my own exercises and melodies to enhance students learning and enjoyment.

I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance.

Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes!

Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

I'm a classically-trained French horn player, but have experience teaching beginner and intermediate trumpet players of all ages. The basic mechanics of playing brass instruments are nearly identical and transferrable. Our lessons will be centered on keeping trumpet fun and inspiring, and building a strong foundation for future playing
and for life!

My teaching is centered around keeping trumpet fun and inspiring, building and refining foundational skills, and developing musical fluency. Every student has different goals, so every lesson will be like a fine tailor-made suit--not "off-the-rack."

Lessons will include demonstrations of technical and musical concepts, sharing and discussing great recordings, use of singing as a developmental tool, and cultivating every student's belief and confidence. For beginners, special care will be taken to establish healthy, efficient playing habits.

I am invested in the success of each student, and I expect all students to come to lessons ...

Shawn helped me prepare for college auditions and helped me get into my dream school. He knows exactly what the level is at the top music schools in the country and is able to help his students get there. I would recommend Shawn to anyone, no matter their experience or aspirations in music.
Adam
My son has been learning with Shawn for a bit now. I can say that I absolutely recommend him as a French Horn teacher, as my son is now very engaged and interested in practicing and learning his instrument. Shawn has a great character, and most importantly cares greatly for his student's progress.
Charlotte
I had a few online lessons with Shawn to help prepare me for a college ensemble audition. He helped a lot with not just the music I was preparing, but also my practice structure overall. Got some great advice on audition prep mindset, how to practice, fundamentals, and of course the music I had to prepare. I ended up getting into the ensemble of my choice, so I'm very happy with the experience!

I love the trumpet, and it's my life mission to help others to experience the transcendent joy of music and the excitement of playing a brass instrument. I take pride in my ability to quickly convey the fundamentals of trumpet technique to beginning trumpeters so that they can get the full enjoyment from playing early on. I perform regularly in a wide range of genres from jazz and funk to pop and reggae, and it's important to me to cater to the individual musical interests of my students. I have been playing trumpet for more than 24 years, and I teach my students valuable brass exercises based on lessons I learned under the tutelage of John McNeil, Laurie Frink, and Walter White, among others. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and trumpet calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility on the instrument. I also focus on the stylistic nuance of jazz, funk, classical, and the many genres that feature the colorful and ...

Bobby Spellman is a very skilled music teacher. We met him when my son was in the fifth grade and had just started playing the French horn. Bobby came to our house every week and did a truly fantastic job helping my son learn a really tough instrument. He has taught my son for three years--switching to Zoom classes during the pandemic--and established a terrific rapport him which enabled him to improve significantly and develop a real passion for his instrument.

"I have been taking online trumpet lessons with Vinnie for years now. I have also studied in person with Vinnie, and played in Vinnie's band. I feel so lucky to be able to take lessons from one of the best trumpet players in the world. Vinnie has helped me progress in many areas including jazz improvisation. Vinnie has a warm personality and is very patient. In my 50 years of playing trumpet, Vinnie is by far the best teacher I have ever had. Vinnie plays so well, and performs in so many places all over the world, I can't even begin to describe his personal talent. However, on a personal level, he is easy to relate to and study with.

"I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman"
