Beckie E. North Hollywood, CA

I have been performing on the horn for 15 years now. I graduated from Chapman University in 2010 with my music education and music performance degree on French horn. I love teaching students how to master this beast!

About Beckie

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 ...

Beckie is fabulous - with children, too!

Our 5 year old son has been taking trumpet lessons with Beckie now for 3 months. He has done amazing progress, is eager to practice every day in order to please her, and looks forward to each lesson. Beckie is incredibly encouraging, kind, yet strict enough to keep child's play away from the lesson, and finds ways to make a small child understand the basics of music theory. She balances the lesson nicely between actual playing and theory, never tiring out the student too much with either one. She's reliable, always on time, and communicates very well with both student and parents about any wishes we may have. She makes our son feel special, and he is very sad having to leave her, as we are moving out of the country this summer. His own words being: "Isn't it sad that I'll have to stop my lessons with Beckie, now that we've just gotten started - I really like the way she teaches."
All this to say... we warmly recommend her, and regret having to stop lessons with her. And that we encourage anybody, adult or child wanting to learn the trumpet (or any other instrument Beckie teaches!) to use her services!

About John

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 ...

John is a brilliant composer and instrumentalist. I worked with him extensively while studying at CalArts. His musicianship and knowledge of music theory is in depth, and he is easily able to pass this information on to students. I highly recommend him as a teacher to any level of musician.

Megan is teaching my 6 yr old son the Ukulele. I love that she is professional, on time and works well with my son who can sometimes be a bit rambunctious and distracted. Other teachers we have tried have been flaky and unreliable. My son is progressing really well and having a good time. I'm so glad that we found her.

Melissa S. Los Angeles, CA

With almost 15 years of experience playing horn, as well as a B.A. in music, I'm your ideal teacher whatever your level. Don't be scared by people telling you "French horn is the hardest instrument" - I definitely disagree! You've chosen a brass instrument with a unique, beautiful sound; let me coach you in breathing and accuracy and introduce you to the wonderful world of horn repertoire.

About Melissa

There are plenty of piano, voice and French horn teachers to choose from. What makes me unique is my focus on theory and ear training, no matter what your age, experience level or favorite genre may be. I make it fun to learn these "ins and outs" of music, which means you will not only be able to play beautiful music, but also understand it, talk about it, and even compose or arrange pieces of your own! Whether we work together for a few months or for several years, you will come out of my lessons a stronger and more well-rounded musician. As a long-time private teacher and a teaching credential candidate, I have extensive experience with all ages of students and currently work part-time with special needs students. Please feel free to contact me with any more questions. I look forward

Melissa is a wonderful person and musician. She has extensive knowledge of music and has honed her craft by playing multiple instruments (Piano, Voice, French horn, Trumpet, and more!), studying composition/theory/arranging, and performing in both classical and jazz ensembles. Additionally, she has extensive teaching experience in both private and group settings including work with ESL and special needs students. The combination of Melissa's calm personality, vast music skills, and abundant teaching background makes her an excellent music instructor!
Olivier H. Los Angeles, CA

I studied with Dale Clevenger at Indiana University for my Masters degree and bring the philosophy of musical goals first and foremost. The most important part of playing horn is sound and I will work with you to get the best sound possible.

About Olivier

I have performed with Redlands Symphony Orchestra and Columbus Philharmonic as well as being a finalist for Macau Symphony and semi-finalist for New World Symphony. I have also performed in sections with Dale Clevenger, Jeff Nelsen and Elizabeth Freimuth. My teaching style relies on simplifying breathing and focusing on achieving the best possible musical results. I take into account each student's goals and desires and tailor lessons to get the end result they want. I have worked with many beginning students as well so whether your goal is an upcoming school or ensemble audition or just trying to sound as beautiful as possible I will help you achieve ...
