I am a 24 year old, fresh out of college, energetic teacher of almost any instrument, specially trumpet. I can teach in any style, and will not let you learn anything incorrectly! Lessons will be flexible and fun. I am willing to work with your schedule and will ensure that your lessons are worth it. I currently teach at FWISD in addition to these private lessons.
*** Lesson Details ***
Welcome to a friendly lesson. I prefer to call a lesson an assisted practice session. Simply put we play a PERFECT practice session together. I want to ensure that I teach you how to practice correctly so that every other time you touch your instrument, you are progressing to success! Therefore instead of teaching you this strange foreign language of music, I am assisting you in learning it yourself.

My primary instrument is Trumpet. I am certified to teach all band instruments (woodwinds, brass, percussion). I have chosen the instruments that I am most knowledgeable about. I have spent most my time with classical trumpet pieces, with the last 2 years focused on transitioning to Jazz trumpet.

I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area for five years. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.
Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, french horn, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play percussion and trumpet in the Frisco Community Band, trumpet with the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble, and I conduct the Frisco Community Herald Trumpets.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I do require students to have a 3-ring binder for handouts that I give. You will also need to get any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.
