About Me

I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

About Me

Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I remember. (I used to give concerts for all the family gatherings!) I've been formally performing in music for over 30 years. I have formal training and 8 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you!

*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and computers with recording software.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet

About Me

James B. was born and raised in the Baltimore County area and has been studying the trumpet since he was ten years old. In middle and high school he performed several times with the Baltimore County Honors Band and Orchestra. After high school James attended Towson University where he studied classical performance with Rene Hernandez and jazz performance with Dave Ballou. In the Fall of 2012 he received his bachelors degree in Jazz Performance. Currently he is begun teaching lessons as well as performing with live groups throughout the Baltimore county/city area. Structured lessons are designed to develop technical skills as well as musicality in young musicians. This is achieved through practicing exercises, scales, and etudes in addition to solo repertoire and jazz standards. James believes that every person has a deep understanding of music even though many have different ways of interpreting it. It is his mission to find the method of instruction that is tailored to his students learning style and understanding of music to enable proficient communication.

Teaching Philosophy Statement

Teaching music is a task for the highly flexible individual. A teacher should be knowledgeable, experienced, skilled in performance and above all, motivating. An instructor should be able to prepare students for many diverse musical situations, strengthen and develop skills and keep the student excited about the music. Private lessons should always cover the basics such as technique, musicality and tone quality.
Basic technical skills are an essential element to any lesson. Whether the student is only first establishing these skills, or seeking further development, I incorporate many finger exercises, scales and etudes in the teaching of technique. I find it necessary to go over with a student (especially a beginning student) how to practice the material on their own. Most students are not taught how to practice, which is the only way to improve. Teaching a student how to work through difficult rhythms is never overlooked. By demonstrating ways to count out rhythms, clap beats and how to write in the counts, students will have a better understanding of how to approach rhythm.
Teaching musicality is another important element in lessons. Students should have knowledge of dynamics, phrase structures and musical styles. In order to teach this, I have my students play a wide variety of solos from all style periods. I also encourage them to listen to the piece and often give them recordings and mini listening assignments. Expression is perhaps the hardest area to instruct upon. I find the development of an individual voice essential for their success as a musician. It is necessary to emphasize the emotional and creative aspects of the music by encouraging the students to think of visualizations, stories or emotions while playing.
Motivating the students is another challenge. The student needs to be excited about the music and love to play. I encourage students to choose solos and pieces that they are interested in. Lastly, the student needs to feel like you are enjoying the lesson as well. It has been my experience that if the teacher is excited, the student will be too.
