About Me

I graduated with a BA in jazz studies from Columbia in 2007 and have been teaching since 2005. I have played in many different projects, covering many styles including Rock, Jazz, Latin, Hip hop, classical, orchestral, and country. So, I have a strong understanding on the specifics of each of these styles, and a big part of my lesson plan is to teach my students to be as versatile as possible. Hence they have many options as far as playing music. I also play a wide variety of instruments including Piano, Latin Percussion, Mallets, Drum set, Guitar, and bass, so if at any point a student has an interest in trying something different t they have many options.

Justin B. Oconomowoc, WI

Subjects Taught

Guitar, History, Music Theory, Trumpet

About Me

I currently stay at home with my two kids, and I love seeing the excitement in their faces whenever they strum on my guitar, plunk around on the piano, or learn a new song to sing. This, along with my own childhood steeped in music, sparked a desire to share music with others and help them learn music.

My teaching philosophy has always been more student interest driven, relaxed and less structured. I think that a very strict, highly structured, cookie-cutter environment, especially in music, can be suffocating to a student's interest. Students have less invested in learning music, and likely won't have any fun, if they are simply being told, "This is what we are learning, this is how we will learn it, and this is the pace at which we will learn it."


Completely self-taught on guitar.
16 years of formal music education.
19 years of experience on trumpet.
Numerous high school and collegiate instrumental and choral ensembles.
8 years of teaching freelance trumpet lessons.
Currently, I am the Sunday School music director for my church (PK3-grade 6)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, music stands, instrument stands.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student should be able to provide the instrument and a music stand.
