I teach beginners how to make a musical sound, how to have a good embouchure as well as learning proper breathing techniques. We will also learn to play songs. Intermediate students will learn how to rapidly improve their overall ability, as well as learn how to play different styles correctly. Scales lip slurs and arpeggios will be learned. Advanced students will address individual problems as needed. Common problems include poor intonation, weak endurance, needing to acquire more range and playing stylistically correct interpretations (ie-symphonic vs jazz vs funk). In addition, with ALL levels, we will advance the student's knowledge and comprehension of music theory.
