About Me

Music began for me extremely young ( age 4 ) first with piano, then with trumpet and saxophone. During High School my specialty changed to Trumpet and focused on that instrument.

During my time playing I have enjoyed being a section leader and playing for many great ensembles that bridged many genres including Classical, Jazz, Rock, Funk, Blues, Pop, as well as Orchestral.

My teachers have included many trumpet professionals including Barry Perkins and Dave Evans. I have also been influenced by and attended masterclasses by Wayne Bergeron and Malcolm McNab among others.

I have made the focus of my life music and I love playing and teaching music and I love meeting new people.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a current enrolled Trumpet Performance student at CSUF and I perform with some of the top ensembles in the school. I have taught lessons with all ages ranging from age 5 to age 62. My experience with trumpet is extensive and I am ready to help you with any aspect of your playing no matter if it's range, endurance, flexibility, literature, or anything else! I have also taught instruments other than trumpet including French Horn, Baritone, Euphonium, and Tuba.

All of my lessons are individually tailored to fit the student that I work with so it is hard to let you know exactly what to expect. My teaching style also may slightly change depending on my students age, activity, and attention level. Expect to learn the fundamentals first (but in an interesting way like playing duets or tunes instead of just exercises), then moving on to more advanced techniques.

I can help with school based literature and assignments for your music classes to help you be the first chair in your band!

Some methods you may expect to see me use are: Arban, Stamp (done correctly), Schlossberg, Clark, and many etude books just to name a few.

All in all I am a fun teacher who loves working with anyone to help them improve on whatever they need and want to improve on!

*** Specialties ***
I can play any style and teach any including Broadway musical book type performance. I do specialize some in classical performance.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, French Horn, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Trumpet, Tuba, Upright Bass

About Me

To say that music is a passion of mine would be an understatement. It is my true escape, my therapy, my bliss.

And, what do I love more than playing it? Teaching it!

Music lessons are an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with learning and perfecting an instrument.

I consider it a privilege to work with others on their musical journey. That is why I spent years training to teach and I now spend hours preparing for my music lessons each week.

I want to help you take your musicianship to its full potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am always in search of new and creative ways to give my students a very holistic perspective of music.

I frequently create custom exercises and help students improve their playing by teaching why music is what it is.

I send home practice logs and reward my students for practicing well by transcribing music they want to learn and making recordings of difficult songs.

I even email a quick review to my students (and/or parents, when applicable) after each lesson with helpful feedback, a reminder of what should be practiced during the week, and often links to blog posts, videos, or recordings to aid in their overall music development.

Brian B. North Hills, CA

Subjects Taught

French Horn, Music Performance, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

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.

Folding music stand, metronome, tuner.

Students are expected to have their own instrument, supportive chairs for the student and teacher, 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. 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.
