Hello! My name is Jeremy Alvarez and I’m a professional trumpet player. I started playing trumpet at a young age and quickly knew that I wanted my life to revolve around music. Upon graduating high school, I was accepted into the Berklee College of Music and was granted the Jimmy Lyon’s scholarship, a full tuition scholarship given to one musician on the Western United States. At Berklee, I studied trumpet, jazz, production and finished with a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance. In 2017, I was awarded 2nd place in the jazz division

of the International Trumpet Guild competition. I’ve done professional music tours ranging from the US to Vietnam, Argentina and Mexico. I’ve recorded trumpet and arranged music for several up and coming artists including Sunni Colón and My Anh. I’ve performed with many incredible musicians and artists including Greg Phillinganes, Cori Jacobs, Vietnamese pop icon My Linh Do, Joyce Moreno, Tia Fuller and Pedro Capo. I am currently recording for artists and performing around the LA area.

As an educator, I believe in helping students be the best version of their own unique selves through music. My goals in life are to share my music and creativity with the world and inspire young musicians.

I want to make sure that I am giving every one of my students an experience that is unique to them. I am always thinking of different ways to help each of my students grow. I strive to foster a positive learning environment where students feel like they can be themselves and learn comfortably. I teach all age ranges and skill levels. I have been able to quickly help my students achieve their goals with trumpet because I’ve encountered and overcome many of the issues my students have had in my 15+ years of playing. I know that every student will have unique issues and different strengths as well as weaknesses. This is why I don’t use a cookie-cutter approach but rather figure out what my student needs to grow, pinpoint focus areas and then develop a comprehensive plan that will best suite their needs and ensure their success with trumpet. Even if the student does not choose to be a professional, it is my goal for them to leave my instruction with a positive outlook about music as well as a sense of passion for what they do and who they are.

    Jeremy is an extremely knowledgeable and helpful trumpet teacher. I’m an intermediate player who has been benefited tremendously with Jeremy. He has a very deep and thorough understanding of the trumpet, from technique to mechanics and musical knowledge as well. If you want a teacher that is extremely qualified and pleasant to take lessons from I highly recommend Jeremy.

    I like doing lessons with Jeremey because he is positive and helpful during the lesson. If there was a mistake in an exercise we were working on he takes it step by step to make it better. In addition, when we fix mistakes it’s in a very uplifting way. His lessons are very helpful and positive!

    I have been a student of Jeremys for six months now and I can see a lot of improvement in myself as a musician. Jeremy has helped me with pieces Im struggling with and taught me ways to learn them on my own. Hes introduced me to a lot of music theory that has made music make so much more sense and easier to play. I look forward to our lessons each week because he makes them fun and enjoyable.

    Jeremy made picking up the trumpet incredibly approachable. Im 33 and up to this point Id only played percussive instruments and knew this could be an intimidating endeavor. Jeremy is amazing at pinpointing your learning style. He can cheerlead the areas where you naturally excel while patiently coaching you through the parts that need more guidance. Its only been a couple months and Im already positively hooked on this instrument thanks to him. Would highly recommend giving him a shout!

    He is a very great teacher! The lessons are fun!
    Im Japanese. I have taken lessons from a Japanese teacher in the past. Its easy to understand because we speak the same language. But I prefer Jeremys lessons!
    My college friends ask me, How do you practice? What do you do to improve? The reason is that he tells me exactly what I want to know and he gives me clear and precise guidance on what I need to do!
    I want to be able to play jazz like him.

    Within the first 10 minutes of working with my son, his trumpet playing improved drastically!!!
    I dont know what teaching magic Jeremy posseses, but he really has a gift for helping his students play their best.
