Beckie E. North Hollywood, CA

Subjects Taught

Ear Training, French Horn, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Trumpet

About Me

Hi! My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play many different instruments such as the Trumpet, French horn and Piano. I graduated from Chapman University in 2010 with 2 degrees in music, Music Education and Music Performance on French horn. I also taught elementary school for 3 years and was a brass coach for a Montessori Academy. I have taught privately for 10 years now and love the one-on-one attention that I can give the students. I currently work for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, I perform with two different orchestras and am in a Brass Ensemble called the Vine Street Brass that performs for events around the city.

I look forward to working with your or your child in helping to start or continue a musical instrument!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I teach lessons, I like to go at the pace of the student. I am very patient but I expect the student to practice during the week. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically. I use a lot of different books like Teaching little fingers to Play and Standard of Excellence. For Adults, I like the Big Beginners Piano book which has easy classical pieces to play! I teach from the rudimentary skills and build on the fundamentals of music. After 3 or 6 months, my students feel accomplished with what they have learned and excited for the next 3 to 6 months!

*** Studio Equipment ***
practice space in home w/ seating for parents and music stand. I also have a cat and a dog, so if you are allergic, please let me know! The cat and dog are always put away during the lesson time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have one music stand. I expect the student to provide the music books and their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical genres of playing.

Clint M. Orange, CA

Arrangement and Composition, Audition Prep, Bass Trombone, Composition, Conducting, Ear Training, Euphonium, French Horn, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

I have taught low brass for over 20 years. Originally from northern CA, I have taught throughout the United States as well as Europe, both individuals and groups.To name a few groups, I have taught for the Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, the San Francisco Renegades, the Sacramento Mandarins, Granite Bay High School, Roseville High School, Oakmont High School and Orange Lutheran High School. I have experience teaching all ages and levels of experience, from absolute beginner to pro.

*** Lesson Details ***
I generally focus on a fundamentals approach to playing--basic technique being the foundation of everything we play. ‚ I believe that the student should learn basic music theory along with their instrumental technique in order to become more rounded musicians. ‚ With performance being the goal of every instrumentalist, I push towards public concerts throughout the year, both with groups and in solo and small ensemble situations. ‚ I work at getting into what helps YOU to learn, as each student learns differently and each student responds to music in their own way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I don't have any studio equipment other than basic recording abilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide no equipment. They are to have an instrument, music stand, tuner and metronome.

*** Specialties ***

About Me

I have a diverse and extensive background as a performer on the French horn, piano, and guitar, and also as a composer, sound designer, and teacher. I studied (Bachelor's and Master's) at Bennington College and CalArts. I have performed extensively on both coasts in orchestras, chamber ensembles, rock bands, jazz groups, vocal ensembles, and more. I play all around LA as a freelance orchestral musician, in my brass quartet, a studio hornist (recorded on will.i.am's last album, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, and with Horse's Mouth, to name a few), and in various other groups. I have been teaching privately since high school and love working with students to meet their individual goals in music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument (horn, guitar) for demonstration and group playing when applicable. I provide sheet music and method books for use in lessons or temporary loan. I expect students to have their own instrument and music stand for use during lessons. If using electric guitar, they should have their own amplifier. In theory or songwriting lessons, they should have their own staff paper. I ask students to purchase their own method books and music when needed.

Brian B. North Hills, CA

Subjects Taught

French Horn, Music Performance, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

ATTENTION: I have decided to go back to school and earn a masters degree in horn performance, so I am currently unavailable for ongoing lessons. However, if you desire a single lesson with me to work on a specific issue, feel free to contact me to see if we can fit one in with my schedule.

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
Online lessons are available through Face Time and are conducted while I am in my home studio where there will be a solid internet connection.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: Music stand, keyboard, metronome, tuner, sound equipment, and supportive chairs for the student and teacher. Parents may wait in the living room, which has a TV.

School Studio: Music stands, keyboard, metronome, tuner, sound equipment, and supportive chairs for the student, family members, and student. I can also do small group lessons in this studio.

Students are expected to bring their own instrument and any method books or sheet music they seek help with. I have a number of method books and exercise books as well which I can introduce the student to before deciding if they should get their own copy to study from.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Folding music stand, metronome, tuner.

I have a number of method books and exercise books as well which I can introduce the student to before deciding if they should get their own copy to study from. The lesson should take place in a common room (i.e. living room, kitchen, den), and a parent or guardian must remain at the home during the lesson if the student is a minor.

Classical and jazz styles, arranging, conducting

Megan W. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, French Horn, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Trumpet, Ukulele

About Me

I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginning Band, and Beginning Orchestra in four LA area private and charter schools, as well as teaching music classes for home-school co-op groups in the Hollywood area. I've been teaching private lessons for nearly 10 years, taking students from ages 4-adult, from beginner to intermediate skill levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be fun, and my lessons are geared to keeping students engaged and excited. I've developed a very out-of-the-box teaching style that takes into account the student's learning style, interests, and goals. It's important for students to feel successful from day 1, and it's my goal to have each student playing a song by the end of the first lesson. We sing, move, and play our way through music!
