Piano, French Horn
With a recent Masters Degree from the University of Southern California in Music Performance, I enjoy performing music as well as teaching both new and transfer students! I grew up in a musical family, playing piano since the age of 5, and French Horn since I was 9. I have been teaching for many years while earning my Bachelors and Masters degrees, as well as the last two years since I graduated.
Lessons involve a well-rounded education in reading music, music theory, and music history. Students and parents can tailor the lessons to their own needs and wants, and repertoire can range from Classical to Pop music depending on the client.
The reason I teach is to provide access to music to anyone who wishes to make it a part of their lives in whatever way they like, I make sure the student has fun while learning a skill that can benefit them for the rest of their lives.

I come from the greater Modesto, CA area. I am a veteran music teacher with over 19 years of teaching vocal and instrumental music. I have taught both in the private and public sectors.
I hold a current music teaching certificate with a BA in Music Education, MA in Elementary Education, and an MA in Reading/Music Focus.
I believe that anyone can learn to sing or play a musical instrument. I am passionate about teaching music and the joy that comes from learning music.
I am experienced in the areas of vocal and instrumental performance through concerts, recitals, musicals, community service, festivals and competitions. Some of my planned musical performances are a Christmas concert, playing and singing in our local mall at Christmas time, and a planned spring recital.
I am a classical and traditional music teacher with many new contemporary styles of teaching music.
My atmosphere of teaching is fun and nurturing!

Hello, my name is Chris. I am currently a Jazz Studies major at San Jose State University. I began my musical journey at Dartmouth Middle School. I played saxophone, and was only mildly interested in music. I stayed in music in high school, but remained only mildly interested until my Sophomore year. I discovered the trumpet and began to listen to Louis Armstrong, and became obsessed with jazz and mastering the trumpet. In just 2 short years, I had studied enough trumpet to travel South America with the San Jose Youth Symphony Philharmonic Orchestra. After my South American tour, I decided to teach privately and share my talents with the world. I won a scholarship to San Jose State for music excellence in 2009, and joined the Spartan Marching Band. While in this prestigious organization I performed in Olympic Stadiums, Disneyland, and all over San Jose. I am currently working toward a Bachelor of Music with a dual emphasis in Music Education and Jazz Studies from San Jose State. I work for TakeLessons.com, and Manzana Music.
In addition to in person lessons, I teach online. Online lessons use Skype, which provides students with a convenient opportunity to get high quality music lessons. I have personally received lessons online from the highest level of professionals. I recommend online lessons to anyone who is not able to attend in person lessons, or prefers the convenience of online lessons.
Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Tuba
I am an active freelance hornist in the Chicagoland area. Beginning my studies at the age of nine, I have been playing the horn for 15 years. After finishing high school in Houston, Texas, I relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I began my undergraduate work at Louisiana State University under the instruction of Seth Orgel of the Atlantic Brass Quintet.
Upon completion of my Bachelor of Music degree in 2011, l moved to Chicago, IL where I spent the next two years earning a master's degree in music performance. During this time I studied with Dale Clevenger, long time Principal Horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
During my career, I have performed in a wide variety of settings including orchestral performances, musicals, operas, chamber music, and solo performances.
Music Performance, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Tuba
I am a middle school band and orchestra teacher and brass musician with performance experience on horn, trumpet, and euphonium, as well as voice. Some of the ensembles I have performed with include the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Masters Orchestra, and Crown City Symphony. I also coordinate the Los Angeles Hornsaplenty Christmas event and invite my students to participate in it as well as TubaChristmas in Los Angeles or Anaheim, because if you don't enjoy playing your instrument, you shouldn't keep playing it!
I hold a BA in music education and a teaching credential from California State University in Northridge, and have studied with Roy Poper (studio trumpeter), David Washburn (trumpet for California Philharmonic and LA Chamber Orchestra), and Brian O'Connor (studio hornist). For this reason, I tend to favor methods from James Stamp and Vincent De Rosa, but feel that every lesson plan should be tailored to the individual student's needs.
With nearly a decade of teaching experience in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I have guided many students in playing various instruments and continue to dedicate my time and energy to refining my instructional delivery so that it makes the trickiest concepts clear in the students' mind.
