Trumpet Lessons 2018-2019 from the Studio of David J. Apple


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.


Lesson Times

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 2019 - Update -No Change from 2018

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

  • Beginning APRIL 1, 2018 the Monthly Lesson Tuition is $120 for one 1/2 hour lesson per week. Hour lessons are available for $240 per month. This include a "free" 5th lesson if there is a 5th day that month. This could be used for make-ups. This increase in fees is due to the doubling of my studio rent by Coffey Music as of April, 2018.
  • Payment is due on the first lesson of the month. (Cash or Check)
  • I cannot waive lesson fees for illness or other student absences. I still have to pay rent for the time a student is absent. I must therefor charge for each lesson time block you are scheduled and I am at my studio.
  • I will pro-rate studio fees on times when I will not be teaching (my concerts, performances, etc. or my illness). This includes closure due to inclement weather days.
  • 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. Those monthly tuition fees will be pro- rated at $30 per 1/2 hour lesson or $60 per hour lesson.

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. All students are expected to have their music, lesson books, working trumpet and accessories at each lesson. Repeated lessons without materials will result in a teacher-parent-student conference.
  • 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!
