About Me

I specialize in teaching and performing Country, Blues, and Rock n Roll (to name a few) along with a variety of other musical styles. Because of my experience and educational background, I am able to help my students learn what they "need to know" in order to play the songs they want to play. Students will benefit from my unique teaching methods. I won't waste any time learning things that don't apply to your personalized objectives. You tell me what you want to be able to do and I will teach you what you need to know to get there.

Here is some more information about my experience and educational background.

I've been a working musician almost my entire adult life. I’m a student of the guitar as well as a teacher.
Here is a little about my background. I started teaching guitar lessons to a few students in my home in 1978. Wow can’t believe it was that long ago. That led me to teaching private guitar lessons at two different music stores as well as guitar class for an adult continuing education program. After a run of 15 years and graduation with a Masters degree in Adult Learning and Development I became a serious student of the guitar studying around the country and in Canada. During this entire time I performed as a working musician in several bands. I’m currently the leader of three different musical groups performing locally and mostly on weekends. I have a easy going personality and a user friendly teaching style tailored to the students individual needs. But most of all I just enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge and experience with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach a student how to:
Read music and tablature
Form and play chords needed to play songs
Music Theory and ear training
Good Timing
Proper right and left hand technique
Both Lead and Rhythm techniques
Acoustic and Electric guitar
And I can help the experienced player break bad playing habits and advance to higher levels of playing.
I like to incorporate visual and audio aide as well as demonstration when I teach.
I use all or part of these teaching methods and more in order to enhance the learning experience. I always base my instruction on the needs, abilities and goals of the student..

Traci N. Cleveland, OH

Subjects Taught

Phonics, Reading, Trumpet

About Me

Trumpet performer and educator Traci is known for her rich tone, her highly developed sense of musicality, and her passion for sharing music with others. Traci currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio.

Traci has performed with numerous ensembles across the country including the Denver Brass, the Wheaton Band, the Oistrach Symphony, and the elite ensembles of DePaul University's School of Music and Denver's Lamont School of Music. Traci was principal trumpet of the Tuscia Opera Festival in Viterbo and Rome, Italy in the summer of 2010. She was also featured as a trumpet soloist with the Lamont Symphony Orchestra in May, 2011. As a member of the International Trumpet Guild, Traci was honored with their Young Artist Award in June 2005.

Traci is passionate about making music and sharing her passion for performance with others. In addition to music making, Traci is also an award-winning and widely sought visual artist, specializing in acrylic and pastel paintings, ink and charcoal drawings, mixed media art and cartooning. Traci is also seeking ways to integrate her passions for music and art.

*** Lesson Details ***
Traci enjoys teaching trumpet players of all ages and ability levels. Traci believes that studying music teaches a person much more than the art of self-expression; studying music reveals a lot about life. In addition to music performance-specific skills, whether on trumpet, piano, or any other instrument, great lessons such as being a team player in an ensemble, creativity, dedication, habit-building, self-motivation, and the reward of daily practice become second nature. Traci enjoys teaching because she enjoys this process of self-discovery.

Lessons with Traci will focus on musicality, fundamentals, creativity, that problems and challenges are opportunities for success, and attitude. A comfortable environment and atmosphere between student and teacher is necessary for growth!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet: any level, beginner to advanced!

In lessons of all ability levels I stress the importance of a vocal approach to playing the trumpet, understanding how to make anything musical, that fundamentals are important, and that challenges are opportunities for success. Individual problems are always addressed in personalized ways for each student.

About Me

Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have some glowing letters of recommendation, and among the highest ratings in this region. I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college students and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. Best of all, my rates are cheaper than many tutors, and for your convenience, I can drive directly to you. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCI.

I appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

Standardized Tests: ACT, SAT, PSAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, ASVAB, GED, TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC
