Jerry is the greatest, with a particularly wonderful way of inspiring children with a fun and humorous spirit, alleviating anxiety, while promoting them to learn skills both concretely and even abstractly. Finding him on here, and experiencing his giftedness in teaching my nine-year-old daughter was a godsend. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

Pasquale does what great teachers do - he meets the student at the student's level. I'm 64 and have been an advanced beginner my whole life. Pasquale has given me reason to think I will become a real trumpet player in the not too distant future.

He makes it real clear that I have to do the work but he is providing a very solid path to follow.

I strongly recommend as a terrific teacher.
Camden
My 14 yr old son just switched from trumpet to tuba and started tuba lessons with Mr. Gallo today. Mr. Gallo seems very knowledgeable not only about teaching tuba, but also about trumpet and other brass instruments so he knows how to help my son transition from one instrument to the other in the best way. It was a great first lesson, looking forward to more.
Lenny M.
Very knowledgeable. Pasquale gently urged me to consider doing some “work” which is to say the very exercises I have avoided for most of my life. Sometimes you just need a good coach. My first impression is that Pasquale might be that coach.

I enjoyed the lesson.

All musicians benefit enormously from an understanding of how it all works. I love teaching theory from the ground up, mastering the simplest concepts in order to understand the most sophisticated effects and applications. Theory is painless and fun, and understanding it will enhance your listening, your playing, and your composing.

With both a Bachelors and Masters in music I am qualified to teach all subjects of music theory from the beginner to music majors studying at the collegiate level.

I'm happy to teach regularly scheduled lessons or just a one time lesson if a student needs help!

About Carter

I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is poor instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments. My goal as a music educator is not only to t

After more than fifty years of not touching a clarinet since high school band, one pursuit in retirement was to perform better than my mediocre past. My instruction from Carter has given me tools to achieve my goals with specific insights as to posture, embouchure position, tongue/oral cavity form, fingering, interpretation and more. I always received functional answers to my many questions.

I've been learning for about 6 weeks now and could not ask for more. Excellent teacher helping me reach the goals I have as fast I can yet always with excellence and integrity to the pride of the instrument. Awesome.

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …
