I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

We'll start with easy material (one note at a time) and move on to harder material (harmonies, music with multiple moving lines). You should be comfortable singing (you don't have to be good!) to get the most out of ear-training with me. My goal is to get you to recognize music theory concepts purely by ear and to be able to fluently replicate what you hear.

About Roxanne

I know my students can learn ANYTHING, and it's my job to guide them and inspire them in the most efficient and fun way I can. I have a versatile background as a trumpet playing composer who plays piano as well. I've played in almost every genre at one point or another as a professional trumpet pla

My son has looked forward to trumpet lessons since we began working with Roxanne. We've only experienced instruction via Zoom, yet we all feel he's learned quite a bit and he feels he has become a better trumpet player. As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility and clear communication. I have confidence in her teaching style and the apparent vision she has for this point in my son's musical journey.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.

"It has been a pleasure having Yoon Jae as a teacher. He took a very personalized approach with my ear training, developing a solid idea of my strengths and weaknesses before honing in on specific issues. What sets him apart is that he's adamant about reinforcing the musical applications of the skills I'm developing, and he challenges me in ways that never feel dry or superfluous. I've seen great improvement in the relatively short time I've been with him."

"Can't say enough about Yoon. He is not a mere teacher, but a mentor of sorts. Not only does he know his stuff, but what he teaches can be applied to other areas of life. He goes above and beyond the material. Teaching you not just about music, but how to learn more efficiently and how to build yourself up. Here I was, late to the music game, playing catch-up. In a couple of months, I have made massive improvements to my rhythm and intonation. More than that, Yoon instills a drop more of confidence in me every single lesson and that is invaluable. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about getting right kind of instruction!"

"Fawn is great. She's reliable, punctual, smart, patient and great training me and my daughter how to sing on pitch. I can tell you that before Fawn, my daughter had 3 other vocal coaches and she was frustrated with little or no improvement. Once Fawn came into the picture, that all changed after the very first lesson! My daughter came home last night beaming because she got the LEAD, yes, the LEAD in her school musical. Something that has never happened and would have never happened without Fawn. We are sticking with her. I can't wait to see and hear my daughter and myself continually improve and become the best version we can of ourselves."

"Billy's approach to ear training really helped me a lot! He went at my pace and made references to popular song a to hear chords that, without context, are hard to hear. He accommodated to my way of learning and went from there. I still use some of the methods he's taught me till this day!"
