Overview:
I am a Doctor of Chiropractic who has enjoyed music for over 15 years! I started trumpet when I was in 5th grade and quickly realized music could be a fun hobby, however, needed some help in honing my skills. I started trumpet lessons at the University of Minnesota when I was 16 years old and continued to take professional lessons after attending St. Olaf College. At St. Olaf I played in their top Band, Orchestra and Jazz ensembles. I am here simply because someone took the time to show me the way. I am here to do the same :D
EXPERIENCE
I started teaching trumpet after graduating from Chiropractic school and have loved every moment of it. I mainly go to student's houses for teaching purposes, however, it is also possible to come to my office and/or home office to develop your trumpet skills. I have been exposed to many playing styles, therefore, giving me a well-rounded sound and ability to teach at multiple levels. Whether it's learning about trumpet mechanics or wanting to audition for a top ensemble, I can show you how to succeed.
METHODS USED
For the first couple lessons I try to gauge how advanced students are in their studies. From then on, I choose material that is feasible and challenging so that students grow accordingly. A lot of learning comes from persistence and practice, so that is a must when it comes to learning with me! I try to find out what motivates the student and what makes them so interested in trumpet and go off of that. As much as I'd like to make them a better player, meeting them where they are at is top priority.
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is simple! I make having fun the most important part, especially for beginners because no one wants to do anything that isn't fun! It was the same for me when I started learning tennis. I ensure first that a student has a general grasp on basic scales and mechanics that are essential for the trumpet and afterwards I like to look into other components of the trumpet such as intonation, trumpet concertos and more advanced concepts such as attacks, soft/loud, playing higher, etc. My teaching style is a combination of my experience at the University of Minnesota and St. Olaf College.

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.
