  • “I would recommend taking lessons with Jordan. I only took lessons for a couple months before I headed off to college but they were very helpful in getting me ready and preparing for audition. We talked about high notes and lead playing as well as fundamentals and other stylistic trumpet stuff. Jordan is a good teacher. He has a bunch of great analogies to better explain stuff. He is energetic and obviously cares a lot about what he does and helping you sound better and play more efficiently”

  • “So. After viewing some of Jordan’s posts. I reached out. Technology is great to have some collaboration with a player who does what you want to do and can analyze what one is doing. Slight shift from downstream to upstream making upper register easier. Jordan’s personality is awesome as well as his explanation and demonstration. Highly recommended!”

  • “I had an hour lesson with Jordan. I play at least 2 hours a day. I have played daily for the most part of 20 years….could not play above G on the stave. Do you know the song..”Nobody knows the trouble i’ve seen.”? Well I play.. “nobody knows the crappy notes I have blown”…Until I had lesson with the Hofmann…Five minutes and this guy completely turned my playing around….somedays I blow double G somedays I blow double high C….I am totally gob smacked….the neighbours no longer do self harm and there are even birds returning to the street
    Seriously…this guys attitude and approach to teaching is great…he is genuinely interested in your playing and I just cannot believe he just fixed my playing so fast….all that effort I had put in to no avail….I just cannot thank you enough or express my feelings about that one lesson…I could not play no matter what I did or how hard it tried. I live trumpet and that is why I put up with all those years of failure. So gorgeous you to have given me the knowledge of how to play those high notes it’s made my life..it was a major bone of contention that I was putting the time in and hit a brick wall which I could not of passed…..Jordan ‘s method is simple and differs completely from the ways other teachers prescribed…I am not saying that they are wrong. Their ways don’t work for me..Give this guy a try…he is not asking a lot of money for his time and he is completely genuine. thanks Jordan”

  • “My son was wanting some extra help for a playing test at school. Jordan got us in on short notice as a first time student. He has an awesome personality, and can definitely play! I got to watch part of the lesson and loved the way he broken down the music and explained the best way to learn it. My son said he learned more in that 1 hour than he had in the last 2 years of playing. We are sold, and have returned for more lessons. Definitely recommend Jordan!”

  • “I’ve been playing trumpet since the 4th grade and now I’m 36. That being said, I’ve always struggled playing above the high C. The highest note I’ve ever reached was the high F but sounding extremely airy. To tell the truth all it really took was one lesson with Jordan and one month later I was able to reach up to a DD, might I add using a ptrumpet X) Jordan’s lessons are pretty awesome, he’s very positive. Sometimes it feels like I’m getting lessons from a long time friend.”

  • “Let me tell you about my lesson with Jordan. I was on a three-month contract doing a theatre gig far away from home. The farm house they put us musicians up in was void of much entertainment. That was fine as my entertainment was working on aspects of my playing, including range. Cue Jordan! I’ve seen his videos for a few months now. He is how he comes across on his videos, an enthusiastic instructor that has your best interests in mind. Whatever your goals are, Jordan has the knowledge and passion to help you obtain your playing goals. The rates he chargers are a bargain! I would recommend anyone who wants to take their trumpet playing to the next level to give Jordan a try. I wish there was a 6th star to rate him at.”

  • “Jordan’s a great player and a great teacher. He is full of enthusiasm and a passion for both playing a teaching. He has it worked out as much as anyone has, and he can help you put the pieces together for yourself.
    Take all the lessons you can!”

  • “I took lessons with Jordan for awhile and it was great! He takes the time and listens to your stuggles and then makes the lessons around what you need. He teaches more than just high notes! I needed a lot of help in theory as I never even learned to tap my foot or count! 10/10 recommend him! You will learn so much and only grow in your trumpet journey!”

  • “Jordan Hoffman offers a great service over his private lessons. With a vast knowledge of Jazz and lead trumpet playing and experience in other areas and with a great energetic attitude, he offers a valuable service as a private teacher.”

  • “Great series of usable exercises. (the Perfect Practice PDF) It connects the registers of the trumpet. A great tool to use when getting ready to dig into some lead trumpet charts.”

  • “Jordan is just a great all around guy. Not only is he an experienced pro on the trumpet but he is an excellent teacher who caters to the needs and desires of each student he teaches. Not an easy thing to do when you teach all ages and abilities. No matter what level and ability, Jordan knows his stuff and can show in more ways than one!!
    Me being 49 yo and transitioning to trumpet from trombone, he knows enough to understand my difficulty in changing instruments and has been a valuable asset in my inprovement. That isn’t always easy to do but Jordan’s extremely personable and excellent manner, makes it easy. And he answers any questions you throw at him. And I’ve thrown him some questions!! A++ in my book!”
