I have played in over 20 different groups, performed on over 30 professional studio recordings, as well as having taught professionally for over 7 years. I have played in a professional musical setting since the age of 16. Played in various Rock/Pop bands, Jazz bands, Classical ensembles, Marching bands, Studio groups, World music ensembles, Contemporary ensembles, as well as also performing Solo Shows. I am capable of catering to any form/level of musical skill, and pride myself on being able to provide a wide array of services for any student seeking musical teachings.
I have 6 years of music education experience and 13 years of performing experience.
In teaching instruments, I tend to focus on the fundamentals of music that produce an excellent tone with the proper technique. The student should also learn how their instrument works, and effortless playing techniques that allow for a wide variety of tone and dynamics. With jazz students, I teach listeneing skills as well as fundamental elements of jazz theory including chord/scale relationship, melodies and tune learning, one and two handed voicings, articulation and dynamics, and a honed sence of time. Even at the most elemental level, these elements are important and attainable. An understanding of these aspects of music will allow greater freedom of expression and passion for the student/performer.
I have a Masters and Bachelor degree, both in music education, and I have been playing saxophone for 16 years. I have substitute taught in Madison County, KY and recently completed my enlistment in the United States Marine Corps. I served as a music in Camp Pendleton, CA. I look forward to helping students perform in music and learning how to reach goals they want to obtain.
My method of teaching trumpet for begginers and advanced students is to first make certain the embouchure is correctly formed, the breathing is correct and the instrument is held correctly. I'll have the student play for me to detect any areas of concern and consequently I generate lesson plans accordingly. I will introduce drills, etudes and solo pieces at the given time of apparent progress in the areas of concern. I will make the learning experience fun and interesting, however I will require the students diligience in accomplishing the goals of trumpet performance which are expressive and beautiful performances.

Many parents start their children with music lessons to enrich their lives and give them a fun activity outside of school.

I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)

Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone

Ed is THE best instructor I've ever had and I've had many instructors over the years in various fields of study. Ed met us at a music store to help choose a guitar, this is after he first called and asked all the right questions. He's supplied my daughter with just the right amount of paper work and just the right amount of new techniques. By this I mean to say that Ed connects with the pace my daughter learns at. I highly recommend Ed AND Musika.
Review by Julie Buranelli
My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.

Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
