The details matter
We’re not your ordinary music school
As a smart, conscious learner who is looking for the best, you’ll want to pay close attention to the details that make our program different from other trumpet schools.
And we know you’ll appreciate the Sage Music® difference.
A smarter way to learn trumpet
sage : \ ˈsāj \ wise through reflection and experience
Our trumpet teachers are highly trained in the best methods for learning and teaching music. You or your child will get the best instruction anywhere. So skip the amatuers, and learn with the pros who can properly guide you toward your goals.
Our Arpeggio® lesson system – backed by learning science – will help you learn trumpet quickly and easily with direction in a structured and step-by-step way. Plus we’ll teach you what to do, how to learn it, and why you’re doing it.
We know you’ll get the best results because our students see steady progress. So we’d never need to lock you into a contract. Yet students stay with us 3x longer than other schools. Get in touch to see why now.
Believe it or not 63.8% of our students are adults
Whether you want to be a professional musician or have had lifelong dreams of playing music, you’ll find yourself in good company at Sage Music.
Our students range from absolute beginners to intermediate players to advanced professionals looking to improve their skills and practice.
No matter what you want to learn, we’ll get you there.
Don’t want to play kids songs? No worry! We’ll work with you to help you play the music that you want. We personalize our lessons for you.
Sometimes we can jump right in with what you want, but other times it takes a little prep work. But we’ll always get you there.
In fact, most of our trumpet students are adult beginners. So you’ll find a welcoming environment with a team that knows how to work with folks just like you.
Our progressive methods will get you playing quickly, with easily digestible trumpet lessons. Get ready to buzz!
As an advancing trumpet player, we’ve got the skills to get your playing to the next level. We’ve worked with beginners and pros, so we know exactly how to get you from one level to the next.
At this stage, you should have learned the basics of the trumpet. We'll focus on helping you learn increasingly difficult music and technique.
Our students have included cast members of Saturday Night Live, Broadway performers, and producers. We’ve even helped students prepare for graduate degree auditions.
We go above and beyond other programs by developing more advanced skills, practice habits, and learning techniques. You’ll learn more music, in a shorter amount of time, and with greater skill and security.
Whether you need to work on sight reading, playing cleanly in the highest registers, or playing fast passages, we can help.
Develop your child’s skills in a fun and engaging way
Just like you, we want to see your kid have fun, enjoy music, and grow into a capable, successful adult. And we also know you want a program you can trust because you are busy with so many things.
That’s what we’ve designed our Arpeggio® lesson system to do. Systems such as Suzuki, ABRSM, the Royal Conservatory simply provide a sequence of songs to play. But our system is designed to develop your child’s skills, enabling them to play any music they want. That’s real growth, and real learning.
In addition, our system provides you with detailed notes every week so you can stay in touch with your child’s development. Plus your child will have the opportunity to perform every week in our student sharing hour, in our open mics, or in our regular recitals. This gives you results that you and your child can see.
Trumpet lessons for kids require some extra attention and care. It's easy to overpractice and wear out the lips, which are not often exercised until they start the trumpet.
Our teachers will build progressive, step by step methods that get your child playing the trumpet well, without overdoing it.
If your child has shown a committed interest in the trumpet, you need someone who can take them to the next level. That's not just about playing the trumpet, but perhaps working on ensemble skills for band or marching band. No matter your child's direction, we can help them advance successfully on the trumpet.
If your child has shown exceptional promise on the trumpet, we've got the experience to help. Our program is top notch, and we've even helped students win auditions into masters degree guitar programs at major universities.
Here are just a few of the things that make us a different sort of music school. Learn more about what makes us different.

Most of our students come to us after they have tried lessons somewhere else. They tried video courses or lessons that weren’t personlized for them – YouTube, Zoom, or TakeLessons. They took lessons with teachers who were not trained professionals.
And they just didn’t see the results they wanted.
They didn’t get better or ended up frustrated. They paid for videos but still had to teach themselves. They took lessons with someone who showed them what to do, but not how to do it.
And that left them unhappy. Feeling like they wasted time and money. So they looked for a better program.
The good news is that you’ve just found the #1 science backed program, guaranteed to get you results. That’s the Arpeggio® lessons system, designed right here at Sage Music®.
The trumpet has found a home in so many different musical styles. These are some of the more common lessons we are asked to provide. If you don't see your style, get in touch as we may offer it, too.
When studying the jazz trumpet, you'll learn to get a brighter sound that cuts through the band. In addition, there will be emphasis on sight reading, learning large numbers of tunes by ear, and how to improvise.
Not surprising, there are a lot of mariachi trumpet players in Queens, NY and in San Antonio, TX where we have our school locations. We teach more than the standard classical rep, so if you want to develop your mariachi trumpet skills, we'll help you along.
Symphonic Band and Marching Band are big news in middle schools, high schools, and some colleges. Many of our trumpet students take lessons to improve their skills to be better placed in these bands.
Sage Music offers trumpet lessons for students of all ages and abilities in person and online at the following locations.
Located in a landmark, historic building, our San Antonio location boasts a concert stage, beautiful spaces, and clean, modern music teaching rooms all supported by our professional faculty and welcoming staff.
With Sage Music Online, you'll get all the benefits of our in-person instruction. Plus you'll get lesson recordings, a student app, and access to our online open mics, performances and more.
