Skype Lessons

The great thing about the internet is how it makes it possible for me to serve people all over the world.

If you have an interest in studying music with me, whether it be trumpet lessons, composing/arranging, jazz improvisation for any instrument, or general music theory... you can contact me by email just to see if I can help you (see instructions below).

Regarding trumpet lessons: if you're just looking to play high notes, I'm not your guy. However if you want to work on all aspects of trumpet playing to develop and maintain your tone, tonguing, technique, flexibility, endurance, range, sight reading, and playing musically no matter what styles you play...then I may just be a good coach for you. Especially if you are a "comeback trumpet player", I've done that myself so I know exactly what you're dealing with. Or maybe you're a pro or advanced player that needs to work on the basics and fundamentals so everything in your playing becomes easier and more efficient.

Click this link to read some comments from Ralph who has taken lessons via Skype with me (a new window will open up). And here's a few more comments from Tom, click here.

For instrument playing lessons (trumpet and/or jazz improvisation), you will need:

  • a free Skype account (computer or smartphone) and know how to use it (test it with a friend to learn)

  • a computer or smartphone (the Skype app is free) with video webcam and microphone capabilities - usually the built in ones are fine (optionally you may want to have a separate quality microphone, I can make suggestions for these USB "plug and play" mikes - here's one to look at (video review)

  • and possibly a headset so you don't get feedback through your speakers

PLEASE NOTE - my health situation leaves me without the ability to talk, so I make comments to my students by typing them.  This works surprising well, so give it a try.  We can even set things up for you to do 4 lessons and pay after the 4th lesson, so you have no risk whatsoever.  I want you to be happy with the service I can provide you.

For composing/arranging and general music theory we will do screen sharing via Skype so all you really need is a headset with microphone. And of course, a free Skype account and know how to use it (test it with a friend to learn).

The rates are:

$100 for a 4-Pack of weekly lessons (total 4), 50 minutes each - one-time payment via Paypal

$100/month - one session per week, 50 minutes each - billing by auto-pay via Paypal - this is for continuing studies

$50 per 50 minute session if purchasing one session - payment via Paypal

(you do not have to have a Paypal account to make payment)

Got questions or want more info? ... Send me an email and let me know what you are wanting to accomplish, I will respond back to you usually within 24 hours (most of the time sooner).

Email - mark(AT)mphmusic.com - replace (AT) with @

Put this in the Subject line - Skype Lessons
