I'm currently not taking beginner students on voice/singing, guitar, bass, drums, piano, and ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Melissa though. Please check out her profile:

My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar cla
sses in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Once or twice a year we'll also stage a larger event off site for more individual students and bands classes to perform.
Adult students also occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

About Willie
I've been a professional musician/educator for over 15 + years. I am an multi- instrumentalist which is a great benefit when studying with me. I bring to the table a broad world view and different perspectives of music pedagogy that I have been fortunate to attain throughout my music career and education. There is more than one way to attain a musical goal and I always work on giving different ways to attain such goals until one connects with student. I am a "real world" application type of teacher. I will not stray to musical processes that tend to hold people back from making music.

Bio:
Willie is a multi-instrumentalist, educator and clinician home based in San Jose Bay Area. He specializes in Afro-Latin percussion while exploring other sounds of Arabic, Flamenco, Brazilian and Vocal- Percussion. Willie has a unique and creative a
pproach, inter- locking world music concepts with styles of contemporary music that include Rock, R&B, Hip- Hop, Funk and Jazz. Willie’s appreciation for cultures and music throughout the world influence and compel a creativity that makes Willie part of a new breed of percussionists in the music scene today.
Willie has performed and recorded with international artists and several local artists and groups in California bay area such as, favored nations recording artist James Robinson, Charangon Nueve, The Saul Kaye Band, Kaweh, Latin Lingo, Marc Russo and the Classy Cats, Full Spectrum, Mambo Tropical, Caixa, Silicon Vibe, Fito Reinoso, Piano y Son, San Jose State Latin Jazz Ensemble, KIDGUCH, BukleBros, Audio Dub, Latin Funk Express, White Roses, JT Horns.
Throughout his career he has had the opportunity to work with and perform with artists and groups such as; Trombonist, Conrad Herwig, Hal Galper Quintet, Vibraphonist and Marimba Master, Dave Samuels, Composer/Pianist, Eugenio Toussaint, Trombonist/Composer, Rob McConnel, Saxophonist, Richie Cole, Latin-percussionist/Composer, Pete Escovedo, Gabriel Espinosa y su grupo Ashanti, Jazz y Salsa Alto Maiz, Saxophonist/Composer, Benny Golsen. Maja with musicians, Mylious Johnson, on Drums, Alex Alessandroni and Jason Chapman on Keyboards, Asa ‘ACE’ Livingston on Bass.

Willie was born and raised in San Jose, California. In the younger years of his life, music was always around him in some sort of way. At the age of ten, Willie was introduced to the trumpet. When learning music through playing trumpet, he felt something deep inside and knew it was his destiny to play music for the rest of his life.
In high school, music was his main focus. During this time of his life, he was forming his music foundation. Focusing on trumpet primarily, until one day his band director said something that changed his path in music. He said, “The more music you get yourself involved in, the better musician you’ll become.” After that, Willie started to sing in concert choir. Eventually, he was able to get into the Mt. Pleasant Studio Jazz Singers, a group that had a national reputation winning approximately thirteen National Down Beat music awards at that time. The group was under the direction of Jan DeShera. Being fortunate to be part of winning two National Down Beat Awards for Vocal Jazz Performance. The group performed at the 1st Annual Monterey Jazz Festival at Sea Cruise, Ensanada, Mexico. In addition, performed on the main stage at Monterey Jazz Festival. Other performances included; Pacific Basin Music Festival, Honolulu, Hawaii, International Association of Jazz Educators (I.A.J.E.) convention, Anaheim, California, and San Jose Jazz Festival. During this time, Willie was also performing on trumpet and Latin- percussion with Portuguese group, Alcides y Legacy. At his last year of high school, he received the, James J. Guido Salute to Youth Award given by the Board of Supervisors of Santa Clara County, State of California.
The next journey in his life began at the Phil Mattson’s School for Music Vocations. Here he developed a stronger foundation studying classical and jazz piano, trumpet, voice, instrumental and vocal arranging, among other subjects. Having great opportunities studying with many great teachers, performing in all genres of music, there was something said that gave him inspiration. “If you’re not practicing as much as you should, it doesn't mean you’re a bad person. It just means that you’re cheating yourself and ultimately you’ll have to cheat someone else.”
After graduating from School for Music Vocations, Willie attended the University of Northern Iowa (U.N.I.) majoring in trumpet performance and jazz studies. In his first year attending, he played trumpet and Latin-percussion in U.N.I. Jazz Band 1, which was one of the premier collegian jazz bands in the country. The band was under the direction of Pianist/Composer/Arranger, Bob Washut. Willie was fortunate to be part of winning another National Down Beat Award for Big Band Performance. The group performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands, Lostrott 106 in Belgium, Tallcorn Jazz Festival, and the Kansas City Jazz Festival.

Willie takes time to know student, excellent teacher

My son raves about Willie after each session, states what he is learning such as scales, how to read music, practicing new songs and getting to hear and play new genres of music on his trumpet. My son states Willie reminds him of a teacher he had in Tucson that worked with youth who took time to know his students, ask about what is going on in their life, building a relationship. Willie is flexible on the times of day for class and responds quickly to calls when we need to take a vacation day. This has been a truly positive experience, my son keeps wanting to come back for more classes.

The kids' first trumpet lesson was wonderful! Stephen was patient and has a good sense of humor. Neither of the kids have ever played the trumpet before, but by the end of their lesson they'd already made noticeable progress. We also greatly appreciate Stephen's willingness to teach the kids together. One was nervous to take lessons solo, but excited to take lessons with a friend. Stephen is the kind of instructor you always hope to find when you're looking for private lessons - knowledgeable and kind. I'm confident the kids will grow in their music skills through these lessons!

Tom is a true gem of a teacher. As a student with some prior music experience but no saxophone experience, Tom was able to help me work on my saxophone technique while always mainting a creative, musical, and compositional approach to even the most mundane exercise. I truly wouldn't be half the musician I am today if it weren't for Tom's mentorship. Could not recommend him more.

As a percussionist transitioning over to the world of wind instruments, I can't thank Tom enough for helping to guide me along the way. He's great at breaking down larger concepts into smaller, more manageable pieces, and I never felt overwhelmed or pressured by his teaching methods. I really appreciated Tom's friendly and casual approach, as I know from prior experience that a convival atmosphere does wonders for helping to learn an instrument in a stress-free way. Can't recommend him enough, two thumbs up!

P.S. Be sure to ask him for jazz recommendations, the guy's got quite the taste!

This is my primary instrument and the one I am the most excited about. I've been teaching saxophone for a year and my students have gone on to perform in area-all-state competitions and concerts in the NY area. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few folk songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read treble clef. I specialize in classical, typically use Rubank or Jump Right In books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: metronome, and laptop. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Hi, there! My name is Robin L. and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn to play their band instrument for solo competitions, or just for fun! I went to Roberts Wesleyan College and earned a degree in music education (K-12) in 2016. I'm an energetic and fun person. I believe that with hard work and dedication, you can accomplish anything; but I also believe that the process should be fun! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I focus on making sounds from the instrument and getting the basics of wetting the reed, using just the mouth piece, and demonstrating different capabilities and sounds from my own playing. Once the basics are learned I move on to simple pieces together and get them used to hearing melodies through the saxophone.

Hello,

I am a recent graduate of Centenary College of Louisiana's Hurley School of Music. During my time there I received lessons for saxophone, refining my skills, and played in multiple ensembles. Apart from my involvement on campus, I also play live music in the Shreveport area with a couple of musical groups. I've played saxophone since I was in middle school and now have about 10 years of experience. I have received classical and jazz training so I am able to help in multiple styles. Ultimately the instrument is a piece of metal and I am here to help you control it, not it control you.

Everything comes full circle at some point. I was mostly self-taught up until I began college. However, I had one teacher who took the time for me in middle school because she saw I had something special. And I will always give her the credit for pushing me to become the player I am now. For me, I would love the opportunity to be that person in someone else's musical journey.

I have a more holistic approach to my teaching, focusing not only on musical concepts, but also emphasizing performance and theoretical concepts. Having a deeper understanding of the structure and history of the music further enhances your performance as a musician as well as the experience of the audience - whether they are musically versed or not.

I primarily have experience teaching elementary and high school children. However, I am open to teaching adults and would love the experience to do so! If you would be interested in doing dual-instrument lessons, please let me know as I teach both clarinet and ...

About Matthew
I was first introduced to music at the age of six, when I began playing piano. However, once I began clarinet at the age of ten, I could not put it down. After playing both clarinet and piano for a year, I decided to focus on clarinet alone, and I have been refining myself as a clarinetist since.

In 2015, I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Music in clarinet performance, studying under Dr. Osiris Molina. In 2018, I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Master of Music, studying under Professor Keith Lemmons, while holding a woodwind quintet assistantship.

Being my primary instrument, I have performed countless concerts and taught lessons on B-flat and A clarinets. During my time at the University of Alabama, I taught lessons at a local high school. Coupled with this, I taught clarinet and woodwin
d sectionals at band camps at the high school level and collegiate level in Tennessee and Alabama. In addition to teaching high school and undergraduate students, I also have experience teaching beginning level clarinetists and saxophonists in methods classes - even students who are beginning to read music. My experiences with playing soprano B-flat clarinet include the UA Wind Ensemble, UA Symphonic Band, UA Contemporary Ensemble, Huxford Symphony Orchestra, UNM Wind Symphony, UNM Symphony Orchestra, and New Mexico Philharmonic.

I was first introduced to playing E-flat clarinet in high school. Having an affinity for the instrument, I continued playing it at the University of Alabama in the Wind Ensemble and Huxford Symphony Orchestra and in my graduate studies in both the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony and Symphony Orchestra. My various experiences on E-flat clarinet have me well-versed and able to teach any who have access to an E-flat clarinet.

I began playing bass clarinet during my graduate studies at the University of New Mexico and debuted with the UNM Wind Symphony, from which I came to love and enjoy playing the instrument. Playing bass clarinet has several added benefits that can be applied to playing soprano B-flat clarinet, and I am happy to teach any student who has a bass clarinet and is eager to learn.

Lastly, my credentials also include coaching chamber ensembles and woodwind sectionals. I have participated in several chamber groups including woodwind trios, string trios, woodwind quartets, woodwind quintets, and chamber orchestras - to name a few.
