I'm a trumpet player and have taken lessons from Ron for about 2 years. He is very informative and and very easy to understand. We have gone over the jazz scales/chords and how to fit them into improvisation as well as taking a good look at the chord stucture of a song. He always having me play the 3rd's and 7th's to get the flavor of the tune. He's a "superb" Musician!!! Maybe have a "practice CD" to work with until we have another session. Keep doing what your doing!!!Apr 6, 2014Music Lessons Ron Hartwell's reply
Joe is one of those dream students. Eager to learn and ready to try what we are discussing . I would recommend Joe to all Senior Centers m, Community Centers as well as Community Jazz Bands as an excellent choice for your entertainment needs.
I am an older student (early 60's) I have been playing on and off since the 4th grade and I have had several teachers through the years. Ron is with out question one of the best. He has tailored each session to exactly where I was at that moment as well as designing a over all plan of development.Nov 26, 2017
Ron is a talented musician and enthusiastically passes that on to the student.Nov 28, 2017
When it comes to music, Ronald is an endless well of knowledge. It truly is difficult to find an individual with as much talent and passion for music that he possesses. From my time spent with him, I can tell he is as eager to teach me as I am eager to learn, and there's absolutely no doubt in my mind that he is an outstanding teacher.Apr 8, 2014
