Beckie E. North Hollywood, CA

Saxophone was the first instrument, aside from Piano, that I started to play. I started in 4th grade with this instrument until my middle school teacher in 6th grade asked me to switch to French horn. I continued to perform on Saxophone in our school's Jazz ensemble.

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.

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!

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.

He takes the time to learn the song I want to learn before hand and write it all out with strumming patterns and notes. He makes it really easy to understand. I feel my improvement already.

Saxophone · In home
My daughter took lessons from Ben for several years while he was at FSU and she was just starting out on saxophone in Middle School. Ben is the best. He taught in our home which was very convenient for us and I credit Ben with really keeping my daughter interested in music generally and saxophone specifically. He is a very talented teacher. Ben is patient but also knows how to motivate his students. In addition to saxophone, Ben taught my daughter guitar. Because of Ben's guidance, my daughter made the All District Band in 8th grade and just began her freshman year of high school as the highest seated freshman saxophone player. She also auditioned for, and made, the high school jazz band as a freshman. I highly recommend Ben as a saxophone instructor.
