“I have become a better trumpet player over the past year. He helps me with the fundamentals that I never learned elsewhere or on my own. He has helped me with timing, intervals, chords, improvisation, building my range etc. He also is willing to work on my current music challenges as well as provide me with new exercises and ways to approach my practices and make the best of limited practice time. I love his wealth of music knowledge and down-to-earth explanations that helps me practice better, smarter and continually improve. Everything that he has taught me has helped me to become a better trumpet player and my fellow band members have also noticed. I have personally recommended him to a fellow trumpeter and sax player. He's extremely generous with his time and knowledge. He's the best !!!"

“I have had 3 lessons with Charlie now and I have already felt my trumpet come to life! Charlie gives very good advice on how to help teach yourself to improve and is definitely a master trumpeter. It feels like I am learning from a good friend. Thanks Charlie for your passion for music and specifically the trumpet. Thanks for inspiring me. I had taken a 16 year break from the trumpet and now I feel like I am an even stronger player after just 6 months back. I live in Sweden and do lessons online with Charlie and he comes highly recommended."

Eric Haney / Trumpeter

“Another brilliant lesson from Charlie - a truly great teacher, and a relentlessly curious fellow explorer of the instrument."

Jim Stagnitto / Trumpetert

“Best trumpet teacher I've ever come across. Current, extraordinarily knowledgable, intelligent. Opening my eyes to a whole new world of appreciation and enthusiasm for the instrument. Very grateful for Charlie!"

Jon Spinogatti / Trumpet

“I've been resisting reporting on my lessons with Charlie. I'm afraid of him getting popular so I can't schedule more lessons! Charlie's hour long Skype sessions are a flat out bargain. It's so easy to schedule and
