What Gary’s students say:
Adult Player : I have been taking trumpet lessons from Gary for a few years. My intonation, range and flexibility has improved tremendously under his teaching. I look at playing and attacking music in a completely different way and style thanks to Gary. Gary is deeply passionate about the trumpet and he himself is always willing to learn new techniques and pass them on to his students. I personally feel Gary is one of the premiere trumpet players in the Metro Detroit Area. Listening to him play in his GGO Band is always a joy and I encourage everyone to take the time to go and listen to him and his band.
Adult Player: I have studied with Gary Greenfelder. I was trying to up my skills to be able to earn a spot playing in his Big Band, the Gary Greenfelder Orchestra. I took weekly lessons and really enjoyed my time with Gary. After several months of lessons, I was able to start subbing in his band when they needed a fill in. I eventually became a full-time member and loved playing with GGO. Gary’s methods are varied, and he always challenges you, yet makes you comfortable with where you are in your journey. Gary is really such a great teacher and mentor that I would highly recommend him to any musician!
High School Student: You have greatly improved my technique after only a few months with me. You go through lessons at a steady pace and are flexible in case something comes up, such as a last-minute audition and learning school related materials.
Gary develops routines and exercises he shares from time to time. For a copy of his simply warm-up, you can request it here.
