Charlie teaching a studentIn addition to being an in-demand jazz and classical trumpeter, I also teach trumpet, and jazz improvisation to all instruments.

As a graduate of The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, and a Fulbright Scholar at The Paris Conservatory, I have studied with the very best teachers out there, including Wynton Marsalis, Raymond Mase, Mark Gould, Phil Smith, Vincent Penzarella, William Vachianno, Jon Faddis, Pierre Tibauld, Guy Touvron, Dominic Derasse, Laurie Frink and Cecil Bridgewater. I bring a combination of their teachings as well as my own experience into my lessons. I teach each student individually in a way that works for them.

I offer private trumpet lessons online via Skype. I teach all levels from beginners to advanced professionals. I also teach all styles, including classical and jazz.

Topics that I cover include: Fundamental Technique (embouchure, breathing, tone production, tonging, etc.), Style (phrasing, interpretation, genre-specific practices, etc.), Endurance and Range.
