Private Trumpet/Trombone and other Brass Instruments

We are a great choice for your child's music lessons because of the well rounded foundation we provide to all of our students.  We do not teach for one project or piece of music but rather foundational skills that enable students to continue to build on the foundation long after they have discontinued lessons. We want your students to enjoy learning to read, play and create their own music.  All of our music instructors have university training in music instruction.


Modesto Academy offers two recitals per year to all private and group students. Recitals are highly encouraged and gives students the opportunity to sing in front of others and show off what they have been working on. Our Winter Recital is held in December and our Spring Recital is held in May each year. We also have a practice recital a few weeks before the actual recital to help kids understand what to expect. The office emails families to let them know when sign up sheets are out for both practice and actual recitals.  


Lessons will be schedule on a year round basis which will include 47 lessons per year. Monthly tuition will be the same rate each month whether students have 3, 4 or 5 lessons during that month. All tuition fees are due at the beginning of each month. Families can pay in person, over the phone, or online.


30 minute lessons - $124.50/monthly

60 minute lessons - $242.25/monthly


Recommended Brass Instruments

There are many reputable brands available for a brass instrument such as Bach, Yamaha, Getzen, King, and Blessing. Many of these brands are available at our local music stores. When shopping elsewhere be leery of the "too-good-to-be-true" prices. If you are looking for something less pricey, our students and teachers have used and would recommend eBay and have had great sucess with their purchases. If you have any other questions please consult with your students teacher for more recommendations.
