About Michael

Hello! My name is Michael and I am offering trumpet lessons for your elementary or middle school age student.  I have been working with this age group as a Guest Teacher and Tutor for Highline Public Schools since retiring from Boeing in 2013. I’ve experienced that successful people are generally the ones who enjoy what they are doing, and my goal is to help your student enjoy and excel at playing their trumpet. 

Creating music can deliver a very positive and validating experience for the musician.  Through private lessons, your student is more likely to become a section leader and to seek additional opportunities to broaden and share their developed gifts through participation in Jazz Ensembles, organized individual and group competitions, playing at places of worship or in pit bands for theatrical productions etc. The opportunities are out there, and those who excel at their instrument are in high demand.

Thirty minute lessons will be structured to teach warm-ups, scales, and lip flexibilities for embouchure development.  Solo and duet work will be accomplished as time permits.  Every effort will be made to contact and confer with your students Band Director to ensure a coordinated approach. I look forward to meeting you and to begin helping your student realize accelerated results.
