Private Music Lessons & Tutoring Services

Music Lessons

Private music lessons for trumpet, brass instruments and jazz improvisation for all instruments with Eric Bolvin are available in San Jose, California at both Music Village locations.  My students occupy the top chairs at many of the local high schools and middle schools, including Bellermine, Santa Teresa, Oak Grove, Leigh, Martin Murphy, Bernal and others throughout Santa Clara Valley.  I am also available for clinics on brass or jazz improvisation. Please contact me for details.  View my Resume.

Trumpet Crash Courses

Planning a visit to the San Francisco Bay Area? Why not get a trumpet lesson while you’re here? The “crash course” is similar to what Claude Gordon offered. I will set you up with a progressive routine that will keep you busy for months.


I am available as an arranger for your CD project or group. To hear some examples of my arranging  click here.  I also have an extensive library of R&B, rock, blues and jazz horn charts.
