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.

Want to learn trumpet from a Berklee College of Music graduate? I'm always excited about educating the next generation of versatile trumpet players. There is so much nuance to the trumpet, and every player interprets and executes it differently. No two trumpeters are alike! My education was steeped in jazz studies and my teaching style is as well, even as a beginner I'll be teaching you the blues scale. I want you to feel my love of the trumpet. To pick up the horn is to go on a journey that involves so much of the body and mind. Discipline and curiosity govern my daily practice, and I hope to inspire you to want to pick up the horn as often as you can!

About James

I graduated Berklee in 2015 and worked on and off cruise ships around the globe till the pandemic hit. Since then, I've moved to Manhattan and decided that my five years of travel and daily playing may have prepared me enough for the big city. It's still too early to tell but things are going well s

In the past 4 years, I have tutored dozens of students and worked with different trumpet players in my area. As a music major at the University of Illinois, I seek a way to continue my passion for teaching and seeing students develop into wonderful players. Trained in general music, theory, and skills in teaching, I can truly connect with your student and ensure that they gain knowledge and learn to love playing their horn!

The most valuable way a student can learn is if he or she has a positive connection with the teacher. In my case, I ensure that I understand not only the student's strengths and places for improvement, but also the uniqueness of his or her character and what teaching methods the student responds to. Every child is unique in how they learn, and all deserve a positive experience without intimidation and impatience from teachers. Teaching music also goes hand in hand with teaching your student dedication, work ethic, and strong character!

I am a current Music Education student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, pursuing a minor in Psychology. I earned the John Phillip Sousa Band Award and the Semper Fidelis Marine Corps Musical Excellence Award for leadership, musical talent, and dedication in music. I studied under pres

My son had never played a musical instrument before his lessons with Mercedes. She has been super patient and encouraging with him as he isn't the most motivated of students. Joseph now has a solid base of the fundamentals and has begun to enjoy to play his trumpet as his skill set has grown.

Marvelous instructor for an old student (76). Apparently if you can teach young students, you are best equipped to handle the older students.

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.

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.
John J Conlon
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
Troy W.
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!!

"Justin is an outstanding teacher. My 10 year old son had been been taking in-person lessons for a year and a half with another teacher. A few weeks ago I learned about Justin's online classes and signed up. Any doubts that I had about online instruction ended after the first lesson. My son is improving greatly. This is his review, "He's an excellent teacher because he has good teaching skills!" Justin uses helpful materials, he has a clear methodology, he's thorough, and as a current performer he's inspiring. We plan to continue with Justin weekly in the school year."

"Mr. Gallo is phenominal! My son has learned so much in such a short time. He is patient, understanding, and very professional. He has a knack for adapting the lessons to suit the student’s needs, not the other way around, which is beyond helpful since my son battles with ADHD. His years and years of experience, along with the long list of sincere reviews posted by others, speak for itself. My hope is that my son will be first chair every year while in school, and I believe whole- heartedly that Mr. Gallo will get him there. Simply put, great teacher, and great methods. You absolutely, 100%, get what you pay for. The world needs more teachers like this. Happy student, and happy mom!! :)"

We started at beginner trumpet, then added voice lessons and will soon start the family guitar lessons. Jesse's lessons are never boring. He always does something new and always asks what the student wants to play. Jesse is more than an instructor because he has taught my son to love music. He has exceeded my expectations."

"I have been taking lesson with Mr. Gallo for over 4 years now and not once have he met any challenges that I face and was unable to fix it.Through Mr.Gallo's lessons,I came from being a player who lacks the desires to pick up my horn and practice everyday and someone who just doesn't have the confident to play a note properly (doing things half measure) to a player who cares about the tone quality and initiation of a note and putting in the work by practicing everyday to get good results.My work ethic and the desire to play my horn have increase through having lesson with Mr.Gallo and I would recommend this instructor to anyone who express an interest in playing Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, and French horn, or someone who just wanted to learn music theory."
