As professional teachers we specialize in working with students who have a sincere desire to improve their trumpet playing skills and musicianship. Whether trumpet playing is for pure personal enjoyment or for career directed endeavors, we help each student to determine their goals and to develop a plan to successfully reach those goals. Learning is both fun and rewarding at The Academy. When students understand how to practice smarter, not harder. The technique, discipline, and self-knowledge gained from private study with Russ and Deborah will carry over into all aspects of daily living and education.
We offer lessons for adult come-back players & aspiring young students, group lessons, home-schoolers, teaching classical and jazz, private lessons for all brass instruments (beginning and intermediate) and for trumpet (beginning through professional)
