Trumpet Teacher in the Denver area

Music has been a part of my life since before I was even in school.  I came from a musical family and feel like my life has a soundtrack! I have been playing trumpet since I was 10 and can comfortably teach B-flat, C, and Piccolo Trumpets as well as Flugelhorn.  I would love to help you or your child experience the joy of creating music through the use of proven techniques in trumpet performance (classical & jazz) and by teaching music theory to help them become a well-rounded musician from all angles.​​

I have been teaching lessons for about 30 years and have a proven track record of having the best students in their classes! Typically, my students are 2-6 grade levels ahead of everyone else.

Although the trumpet is very easy to learn, it's not intuitive if you're trying to pick it up on your own or if you're in a band class where the teacher has to divide their attention among everyone. Most trumpeters develop every bad habit in the book because of this!

I can break these habits and replace them with successful ones that make trumpet fun and easy! I teach everything from theory, reading music, playing by ear, classical, jazz, working up to an audition and more!

I currently teach lessons remotely via video and can take students from all over the Denver area and its suburbs.

Fun is guaranteed!
