About Me

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!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I teach lessons, I like to go at the pace of the student. I am very patient but I expect the student to practice during the week. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically. I use a lot of different books like Teaching little fingers to Play and Standard of Excellence. For Adults, I like the Big Beginners Piano book which has easy classical pieces to play! I teach from the rudimentary skills and build on the fundamentals of music. After 3 or 6 months, my students feel accomplished with what they have learned and excited for the next 3 to 6 months!

*** Studio Equipment ***
practice space in home w/ seating for parents and music stand. I also have a cat and a dog, so if you are allergic, please let me know! The cat and dog are always put away during the lesson time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have one music stand. I expect the student to provide the music books and their own instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical genres of playing.

Barry M. North Hollywood, CA

Subjects Taught

Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

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.

I do not expect perfection each week as we improve by " percentages ". If in 3 months you are playing 20% better, we are doing good. The day to day thing can vary on brass instruments, we get better as we go.

What I Teach

TONE PRODUCTION - long tone drills and slurs are basic for getting and keeping a great sound. Brass players must have a good tone.

SIGHT READING - I want my students to be confident to read any music that is put in front of them. A focus on this gives them an advantage in the school music programs and is needed to be a professional player.

MUSIC THEORY / JAZZ IMPROVISATION - To be able to play in all keys signatures and understand chord structures is a must for any serious musician. Jazz studies for those who wish to improvise.

Brian B. North Hills, CA

Subjects Taught

French Horn, Music Performance, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

I am a middle school band and orchestra teacher and brass musician with performance experience on horn, trumpet, and euphonium, as well as voice. Some of the ensembles I have performed with include the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Masters Orchestra, and Crown City Symphony. I also coordinate the Los Angeles Hornsaplenty Christmas event and invite my students to participate in it as well as TubaChristmas in Los Angeles or Anaheim, because if you don't enjoy playing your instrument, you shouldn't keep playing it!

I hold a BA in music education and a teaching credential from California State University in Northridge, and have studied with Roy Poper (studio trumpeter), David Washburn (trumpet for California Philharmonic and LA Chamber Orchestra), and Brian O'Connor (studio hornist). For this reason, I tend to favor methods from James Stamp and Vincent De Rosa, but feel that every lesson plan should be tailored to the individual student's needs.

With nearly a decade of teaching experience in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I have guided many students in playing various instruments and continue to dedicate my time and energy to refining my instructional delivery so that it makes the trickiest concepts clear in the students' mind.

*** Lesson Details ***
Online lessons are available through Face Time and are conducted while I am in my home studio where there will be a solid internet connection.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: Music stand, keyboard, metronome, tuner, sound equipment, and supportive chairs for the student and teacher. Parents may wait in the living room, which has a TV.

School Studio: Music stands, keyboard, metronome, tuner, sound equipment, and supportive chairs for the student, family members, and student. I can also do small group lessons in this studio.

Students are expected to bring their own instrument and any method books or sheet music they seek help with. I have a number of method books and exercise books as well which I can introduce the student to before deciding if they should get their own copy to study from.
