Thank you for your interest in taking Trumpet Lessons from me. Lessons are taught at my studio at Coffey Music in historic downtown Westminster, Maryland. Please review the below information regarding studio policies and information.


I teach at Coffey Music on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Opening are limited, so please sign-up early. Call for more information or to schedule lessons times.

Inclement weather / snow / school closings

  • If Carroll County Schools CLOSE EARLY do to Weather, my studio will be CLOSED.
  • If Carroll County Schools are CLOSED for the day, my studio will be CLOSED.
  • If Carroll County Schools OPEN LATE, my studio will be OPEN.
  • If Howard County Opens Late or Closes early, and Carroll County is not effected...the studio is OPEN. (Most likely CCPS will close first..if HCPSS is closed or dismisses early, CCPS will probably already be closed or dismissed early.)
  • Payment for inclement weather days will be pro rated against the next month's studio fee.

Studio fees 2017-2018

Please read the following studio policies through carefully contact me if you have any questions.

  • Beginning JANUARY 4, 2016 the studio fee is $25 per 1/2 lesson per week. Hour lessons are available for $50 per lesson. This is my first increase in fees in over five years and is due to increased studio costs and other expenses.
  • Payment is due on the first lesson of the month. (Cash or Check)
  • I cannot waive lesson fees for illness. I still have to pay rent for the time a student is ill. I will not charge for prearranged scheduled absences.
  • I will pro-rate studio fees on times when I will not be teaching (my concerts, performances, etc. or my illness).
  • There will be no lessons on extended School Breaks (winter, spring) and on some legal holidays. Please see me as we schedule our monthly lessons times.

Student expectations

All of Mr. Apple's Trumpet Students are expected to:

  • Be prepared with your trumpet and all other necessary materials at each lesson.
  • Have your trumpet in good working order for each lesson. If you need something fixed or repaired, see me. Coffey Music has an on site instrument repair technician.
  • Have your lesson prepared to the very best of your ability. PRACTICE! You should be practicing daily. Depending on your age, grade level and the performing groups you belong to, that could be from 20 minutes to 60 minutes per day.
  • Ask questions, be engaged in learning. Bring other music you would like to work on.
  • Have FUN!
