    I have been learning trumpet at Cupertino Music Academy for around 2 years, and Ross has helped me improve tremendously over this period. Ross is not only a great teacher, but also fun to work with, and I look forward to class each week!

    Enthusiastic teacher. Opportunity to perform at unique venues (trumpet group).

    Dr. Hoksbergen is an amazingly talented musician and an inspiring teacher. His easy-going manner and teaching skill immediately connected with my son -- within the first five minutes, my son turned to me and said "I want him as my teacher." Nearly two years later, my son still looks forward to working with Dr. Hoksbergen each week. Their pace is relaxed and comfortable, yet still challenging, and watching the improvement week by week makes me a believer!

Typically, we start with long tones and air production. We then move to band or orchestral literature, and usually end with something lighter like Pop or Jazz!

I have a Bachelors, M.M. and D.M.A. in Trumpet Performance! Former professor at Albion College and trumpet player for Lansing Symphony and Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra.
