About Harry Johnstone

Out of all the instruments you can learn, trumpet is one of the most exhilarating to play, with its powerful, soaring sound. It also great for the lungs and is also a very good choice for those with asthma! I am a professional trumpeter and composer based in London, having played at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club and a winner of the 'BBC Young Composer Competition'. Over the last three years, I've taken on a verity of private trumpet students, of varying abilities: from complete beginners to more advanced students. This has provided me with a spectrum of learning and teaching styles. I pride myself on my ability to effectively communicate ideas with others, and to get quick results from pupils: one student (9 years old) started the trumpet 24 months ago and has oven offered a place in the 'National Children's Orchestra' and will be sitting her grade 4 exam this winter. I am passionate about the processes of learning and teach a methodical approach to the trumpet that supports the development of good technique and musicality. I have since January 2019 taught trumpet at the World Heartbeat Music Centre in Wandsworth on Monday evenings. Since qualifying as a Level 2 Swimming Teacher in May 2016, I have been engaged as a swimming teacher for The Sarah Harris School of Swimming on an ongoing basis, teaching for 8-12 hours per week. This work has further enabled me to develop my teaching skills. As with my work as a music teacher, I am highly results driven and passionate about providing high quality input and feedback. "Harry is an excellent trumpet teacher. Barely a year after he began teaching our beginner daughter, she achieved a distinction at Grade 1. Alongside his focus on technical expertise with the trumpet itself, Harry's lessons involve an emphasis on musicianship, a deep understanding of rhythm, and even improvisation and composition. His enthusiasm for music has resonated very strongly with our daughter." - RD (Wimbledon Parent)

Sebastien d.'s review on Sep 27, 2020

Harry Johnstone has taught me trumpet now for over a year. During that time I have found Harry to be constantly attentive to my needs as a starter player, and through his deep knowledge and clear talent - both as teacher and trumpeter - he has enabled me to overcome early challenges and to progress significantly. Lessons with Harry are always a blast. Any aspiring trumpet player would stand to gain loads of great tips from him. I am convinced that Harry really not only helps his students to attain a great standard of playing, but to top it all, he also makes sure that they have fun while doing it.

Harry's an inspirational music teacher. His enthusiasm for the trumpet rubs off on his pupils, and he works very effectively with all players from beginners to more advanced musicians. His skills extend far beyond the technical - our daughter's general musicality, sense of rhythm, and ability to improvise have all improved immensely under his guidance. I would recommend him without hesitation. He's also a great guy.

Kate A.'s review on Sep 03, 2020

Harry has been teaching my son the piano for the past year. He is a fantastic musician and a natural teacher. He works very creatively with my son, and has really got to know what methods work for him. With Harry's help, my son is already working on Grade 2 piano pieces, and he loves his lessons!

Marié B.'s review on Sep 02, 2020

Harry is a gem! Our 6 year old son Thomas has trumpet lessons with him once per week and adores his lessons and Harry! He has made real progress and we feel Harry’s personality and encouragement has played a massive part.
