"Our middle-school-aged daughter took in-home trumpet lessons with Jon for three years. He always was easy to reach, on time, and flexible with scheduling. Jon used a very positive and encouraging approach during lessons, and she soon had a great rapport with him. The added bonus was that she got to learn from a working Jazz musician."
"When I studied with Jon I saw the biggest improvement in not just my trumpet playing, but my overall musicianship, improvisation and composition. From a trumpet standpoint, I became much more consistent and stronger. He has a clear plan for helping you reach your goals and for me - structure is very important. I had too many lessons in the past with other teachers where instruction was all over the place with no clear direction. Jon's approach to teaching felt as if everything I was doing was connected. On top of that -- I enjoyed the process! Highly recommended."
"Jon has been extremely helpful in coaching me with my development as a trumpet player and musician. He has a wealth of knowledge regarding practice techniques and exercises that can help anyone to master the horn. Through his tutelage and lesson plans I have been able to overcome obstacles with my embouchure and improve my approach to improvisation. His passion for music is contagious and makes playing the trumpet even more fun."
"I came to trumpet relatively late in life and I'm very glad I got started by taking lessons from Jon. He is an attentive, clear, and patient teacher with a lot of passion for what he does. His lessons are fun and engaging and something I look forward to each week."
