Trumpet:
A trumpet is a musical instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group contains the instruments with the highest register in the brass family. They are played by blowing air through almost-closed lips (called the player's embouchure), producing a "buzzing" sound that starts a standing wave vibration in the air column inside the instrument. I begin teaching from the beginning with the very basics of breathing, embouchure, fingerings, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, scales, theory and improvisation.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

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.

Pasquale has a fun sense of humour, which our son loves. He has brought fun to the lesson and our son looks forward to his lessons twice a week."

He has shared with me processes to improve my playing that are literally "trade secrets" from top level trumpeters that are helping me to take my trumpet playing to a whole new level. My wife is ecstatic at how good I sound! She even enjoys listening to my warm up exercises! I find Gary to be very responsive to my needs and adept at spotting where I need to improve.
