Hi, I'm Sandra and I have been teaching in the Bay Area since 2006. I have a passion for working with young students, in a fun and encouraging environment. I design individualized lesson plans and your child will have clear direction of weekly goals. I expect my students to work towards mastery a
From the beginning she tailored her lessons to include the music that my son was interested in and also added increasingly more complex music to work on and master.
Sandra has taped him playing during lessons to show him how and where he can improve in body position, quality of sound and other nuances. She regularly uses her laptop computer to show videos of performances that support the lesson and also assigns various Internet sites to view for exposure to other musicians and styles.
Sandra regularly provides opportunities for my son to perform in public. He has performed at the annual CMEA event at San Jose State University, and other smaller events where he played solo on stage. They have both joined in at a local café for practice in improvisation, as my son loves to play jazz. This has really helped in his jazz solo opportunities at school. She has also organized a quartet of student trumpet players to work together on various music pieces and then they all performed together for family and friends. This was a unique experience for the children to practice and play together and perform as a group.
My son is also interested in basketball and baseball, and Sandra has been very flexible in scheduling lessons to accommodate my son’s athletic and school schedules. After about 6 months of lessons, she offered twice a week lessons to capitalize on my son’s enthusiasm and increase the speed of musical advancement so his confidence soared and he wanted to play more because he liked doing something he felt he was good at. He kept this schedule for about a year and then back to once a week to allow for more time for other interests.
During middle school, my son played trumpet in both the Advanced Band and also Jazz Band classes. This past summer, Sandra again offered twice weekly lessons to get ready for his high school debut. As a result, he was chosen to play first chair in the high school jazz band. He was also one of only two freshmen that were accepted into the most advanced band class (also known at Wind Ensemble) at Lincoln High School.
I recommend Sandra Laverty, without reservation, for any trumpet teaching opportunity.

"Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts."
My Gospel singing course will explore the foundations of effective gospel singing, including phrasing, riffing, and shouting - in addition to traditional vocal technique used for overall healthy singing.
The course begins with a history of gospel music from a vocal standpoint, and then move to the improvisational components of singing. Since gospel music is more about singing the "good news," we will study improvisation techniques from shouting to gospel riffs.
You will discover how various scales, like the pentatonic and blues scales, are used in gospel singing to create a truly soulful sound.
The goal of the course is to help the gospel singer gain a clear understanding of gospel phrasing, scale patterns, proper breathing, pitch accuracy, and clear rhythmic articulation. Hope to see you in class. Keep singing the GOOD NEWS..GOSPEL MUSIC.
