Overview:

Teaching and music are my true passions in life because I love seeing my student grow and music brings people together. I graduated from the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts (SOTA) where I studied instrumental music. SOTA is an arts magnet high school that performs at a pre-professional level. Through SOTA I performed over 100 concerts all around the Bay Area. I recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz where I was highly involved with the Santa Cruz music community. I performed over 100 concerts all over Santa Cruz county with the UCSC orchestra, wind ensemble, and brass ensemble, the Santa Cruz County Youth Symphony, Santa Cruz Symphony, and Cabrillo College Orchestra where I held the principal or co-principal seats.

EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching private trumpet lessons since I was in high school. I taught beginner and intermediate elementary and middle school students in my spare time. In college I taught students of all levels, ages, and backgrounds including advanced high school and college students and adult beginners. I always my encourage my students to pick music they like to play alongside the music I assign. There is a lot of fun trumpet music in movies and pop songs and this helps encourage my students to practice consistently and gain a love for their instrument. It is very important to me that my students have a say in what they learn so that they can have fun while learning a valuable skill. I'm always looking for new students of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels!

METHODS USED

For beginners, I use the Standards of Excellence book, especially if they are young children because that is the book that they will most likely use in middle school or high school. These books are good for teaching the fundamentals. I also assign a solo piece based on skill level along with an excerpt of a song that the student wants to learn. For more advanced students I use the Arban's book because all trumpet players learn from this book; from intermediate players all the way up to professionals. For adults, I use the same books based on experience level and I ask for more input from them to keep the lessons engaging and fun! I also like to give all my students music theory and history throughout my lessons.

LESSON STYLE

I really value input from all of my students no matter what age. This keeps our lessons fun and challenging. It is very important that each student sets their own goals to reach at the end of each lesson to achieve for the next week. I am a big advocate of positive reinforcement. For my younger trumpeters I like to use stickers and to play fun duets whenever they achieve their goals. For older students I'll give them fun things to play from movies or pop songs they enjoy. I tailor all of my lessons to their style of learning and what they want to learn.

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.
