Gabriel H. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

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.

Mary R. Milwaukee, WI

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone

About Me

I started playing saxophone in 1994. It was an immediate passion! As the years went on my thirst for music grew and I picked up more instruments. No matter which instrument I play the passion is the same. I like to write and arrange as well so I feel an extreme importance on music theory. I am classically trained although my drive is always towards roots music. I try my hardest to combine those two elements.

I currently play baritone saxophone in the Uptown Savages. I am also in the Dead Man's Carnival. In that I may play Alto, Tenor, Baritone Sax, Flute, Bass Clarinet, Accordion, Piano or sing. You can hear me on recordings by the Invaders, Midwest Death Rattle, Into Arcadia, various compilation albums throughout the world and the soon to be released Uptown Savages Album.

Subjects Taught

Arrangement and Composition, Bass Trombone, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trombone, Tuba, Ukulele

About Me

I am a Milwaukee area musician that enjoys music in all its diverse forms. My main instrument is the trombone (specifically the bass trombone) but I regularly teach and play all the low brass instruments, including baritone/euphonium and tuba. I also have a good deal of experience playing and teaching guitar and ukulele as well. I enjoy teaching above all else and hope to share the wonderful things music has done for me. My top goal in any lesson is to find out how music fits into the student's life and help them reach their own musical goals.
