Strong instrumental playing begins with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of music and the simple act of making a sound from the instrument. Students learn to play music by ear first, and are later introduced to music notation. More advanced lessons emphasize sight-reading, expression, and improvisation.

An instrumentalist since age 10, Thomas has experience as a performer and teacher. His previous education has included methodology classes on teaching specific instruments, and he is available to teach beginning trumpet lessons.

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

I believe that it is very important to have a good musical foundation in addition to playing the trumpet. We will go over aspects of music theory such as scales and key signatures. We will go over the fundamentals of playing trumpet and use exercises from various different method books. We will also go in depth into any styles that you are interested in. I will ask you to listen to recordings of great trumpet players so you can model their sound. Lessons will be rewarding and fun!

Our son started taking a weekly lesson with Andrew in August. He looks forward to the lessons each week, is challenged, held accountable, and provided with a great role model as a musician. It has been enjoyable to hear our son's development over the past few months.
Jennie
My son really enjoys lessons with Andrew. He challenges him enough that he is improving his playing with each lesson. Now, my son's high school band teachers are talking about moving him up in the various bands. It's really helped improve my son's confidence too.
I highly recommend Andrew as a teacher and know that you will be pleased with the results!

I had played the trumpet in high school but had not played it since then for 40 years. I was wanting to get back into it to play some specific songs with some friends that play drums, guitars etc. Caleb was the perfect match to teach me the basics again, some music theory and then helping me learn and play the songs I wanted to play. He is so great to work with and will take you in any direction you want to go. And, he is so awesome playing the trumpet. He's amazing. He knows what he is talking about and can back it up. I highly recommend him to anyone at any level.
Jacob P.
Caleb is an excellent teacher! He was patient and encouraging with my teenage son who can sometimes get very discouraged when he finds his work challenging. I hope some of Caleb's positive attitude rubs off on him. The improvement in my son's trombone playing after one lesson was impressive..

Caleb is calm and soft spoken. Just what our son needs.

I ran an Arts-In-Education band that performed big band jazz at schools in the NYC area for over twelve years, and Vincent was a band member. Vincent is one of the world's greatest trumpet players and jazz improvisers, and he is an excellent communicator. I have watched Vincent teach countless times, and he loves working with young people and passing along his craft and experience. He has a very warm personality and a great sense of humor.
