EXPERIENCE

16 years of teaching experience, from elementary-university level Beginning to advanced students, classical or jazz style. Online (Zoom/Google Meet/Skype) or in person. I can teach trumpet, horn, trombone and tuba. Beginning students, middle/high school, audition prep for college and I can tutor with music theory/band assignments. Each student gets a unique approach depending on their goals and experience level. Online lessons I will teach with a camera and also using a shared screen showing sheet music that will allow students to see markings on the music in real time.

METHODS USED

Use all major method and etude books. Have a large library of rare etude books on PDF as well as my own exercises I've written out. Example trumpet books for intermediate student: Arban Clarke Sachs Schlossberg Stamp Charlier Vizzutti Bai Lin Irons etc I encourage students to find music they would like to play, even if they aren't able to play immediately. I can modify the music to make it playable until they have progressed enough to play the original.

LESSON STYLE

Each student is unique and requires a customized approach to realize their goals. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach to students where they all play the same exercises, etudes, etc. I help students find what works for them, often times we create our own methods or modify existing ones to suit the needs of the pupil. I believe a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music can be very helpful, familiarity with music theory/terminology/notation. Having said that I dont think it's completely necessary and have successfully tutored many students who don't read at all. My goal is to help you achieve what you want in order to enjoy the musical journey.

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.
