Overview:

Hello! I'm MJ and I'm a working musician in the SoCal area! I graduated from Concordia University Irvine with a degree in Music Composition in May of 2022 and am ready to share my knowledge with anyone who wants it! I am primarily a trumpet player but am also capable of playing the Piano, French Horn, Bass, Handbells, and more. I'm also very passionate about writing music and am particularly invested in the Video Game Music industry. I'd love to get to teach anyone who is willing to learn! If you'd like to see more of what I have accomplished, visit siegertmusic.com for performances, compositions, projects, and more!

EXPERIENCE

Admittedly limited, my teaching experience started when I was in High School when I became the marching Band's trumpet section leader. I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experience with others—watching people grow in their musicianship is an incredible reward for me and I'd love to experience it more in my life! In college, I once again assumed the role of student and absorbed everything that I could. Now that I am graduate, I am very ready to share that with those who would have it. I look forward to meeting students who share my same love of music!

METHODS USED

Of course, everything depends on what you, the student, want to learn! For younger students that are just starting, I've found the Accent on Achievement books to be very helpful in developing the basics of playing. From there, Classically-focused players would learn solo repertoire, Jazz-focused players would learn standards and improvisation, and all the other genres would begin to narrow down their appropriate fields. Adults are certainly welcome as well and I'd love to help them learn whatever they are interested in. No sense in learning Haydn if you don't like Haydn!

LESSON STYLE

I strongly believe that a well-rounded music education helps a player to become a more confident, musical, and an emotionallyyaware musician. As such, I like to give my students small assignments focused on topics besides just performance, such as Music Theory and Aural Skills exercises. Of course, I will always move at the pace the student needs but I also know (from personal experience) that a nudge in the right direction can be priceless. The commitment to practicing consistently can be very challenging and I understand that!

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.
