Cai is a truly inspiring teacher - always positive and encouraging while pushing me to improve my playing skills. Since he has taught me my trumpet playing has made real progress, and my confidence has blossomed.

As a very late learner, I tried 5 teachers, and I found Cai by far the best! A natural teacher, always encouraging, with lots of practical suggestions on how to improve, and his passion for trumpet-playing is infectious! Thanks to him, I'm having a great time playing in amateur bands and orchestras!
