Beckie E. North Hollywood, CA

After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.

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!

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!
Barry M. North Hollywood, CA

Focus on tone production with ease of playing. Sight reading studies and scales.

About Barry

I want my lessons to be fun as we learn the ART of playing music focused on Brass instruments. I bring to you my life of practical experience of playing professionally in all types of situations, orchestras, R&B, Big Swing Bands, Rock and my passion JAZZ. as a solo artist.

Brass players need to do special daily things to keep our chops and sound good. I have been lucky to have studied with some of the best players in the world and I'm happy to share their thoughts with you.

*** Lesson Details ***

I like to have fun while teaching so we learn with joy. I start each lesson asking " HOW WAS YOUR WEEK ? " as our daily life s situation affects our playing. Some days will be easier than others.

Great Instructor!

I only just started taking lessons a month and a half ago and have learned so much more than I expected. Mercedes is a great teacher and has not only taught me the fundamentals of playing, but also explains "how" and "why" I must do things.

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.
