METHODS USED

For beginning students who are children, I typically start with practice away from the horn building their breathe control and mouthpiece buzzing. I will introduce them to Carl Fischer's Arbans Complete Conservatory Methods for Trumpet and other technical studies w/melodic expressions.

LESSON STYLE

My teaching come from the Suzuki philosopy. I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music and learns to play it they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. I develop the students mid-brain in a musical enviroment. I teach the student how to use their ears more and their eyes less. If the students ear is strong and well honed, their music journey will be so much enjoyable.

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.
