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. 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!

About Cindy

Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a vocal and instrumental instructor. I received my BA and MAT degrees from Pepperdine University. I have taught privately for over 25 years in the San Fernando Valley, along with Pasadena and Simi Valley areas.

I also served as a minister of music at a local church for several years.

I began playing the piano at the age of 7. My mother and sister were taking lessons and, when they had finished practicing I would go into the piano and play what ...

About Joseph

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to the school’s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band ...

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.

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.

Courtney is a fantastic saxophonist. I performed in a Jazz Ensemble with her when we were both studying at Pacific Lutheran University. I am a music educator and I know what it takes to make great teachers - her dedication to the instrument, her great sense of humor and her musical talents will serve any student really well!
Daniel I. Van Nuys, CA

If your child is struggling in band, or if you would like him or her to move up and progress faster please contact me. I've helped my students get to the top of their orchestra or band in just a couple weeks by focusing on mastering the school curriculum as well as enriching that curriculum with music and exercises chosen to strengthen the student's weakness and exploit strengths.

About Daniel

I've been teaching for almost 20 years. In that time I've had students of all ages, abilities and personalities. From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curriculum.

I've had a thorough conservatory training at The Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy where I studied composition, music history, theory, counterpoint, orchestration as well as piano, voice, and more.

My professional experience is extensive. I've been doing commercial scoring for 12 years, I have experience with modern recording and engineering techniques and I play many instruments. Drawing on my solid conservatory training as well as years of ...

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for the past 3 years. During this time we have seen a lot of growth in our son's musical abilities. We really appreciate Daniel's patience and flexibility within his lesson plan. Our son had learned theory, music history and practiced ear training all within his lessons. Recently our son was writing a "score" for one of his home made movies. Daniel was able to give him "real world" advice and incorporate that into his lesson. We are thrilled to have been referred to Daniel and look foreword to having our 4 year old start lessons next year.

Daniel is an awesome instructor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about music and knows how to teach and convey that enthusiasm about music to his students. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly harmonic lessons with him.

I'm also very happy with how my daughter is advancing in her piano lessons wit h Daniel. Right after we switched over to Daniel for her piano lessons I noticed a huge improvement in her musical abilities.

Thank you, Daniel!
