About Jesse
*Disclaimer*
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. It's really important to know though that everyone makes their own experience. The process of learning music involves you learning as much about your own mind and body as it does any external concepts, so please keep in mind only you can move yourself forward.

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. 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 Beckie E.

Close
Santa Clarita, CA

View Full Profile

After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

About Beckie
Hi!
My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play and teach many different instruments such as the French horn, trumpet, piano, saxophone, mandolin, guitar, and voice.

I have my Masters in Music on French horn as well as two bachelor degrees in music performance on French horn and music education.

My first job was as at a Montessori Academy elementary school, where I was the brass coach for 3 years. This is where I fell in love with teaching. I have been teaching privately for 16 years now and love the one-on-one attention that I can give the students.

I have worked with many great organizations like the Los Angeles Philharmonic and various music studios/orchestras around Los Angeles.

I currently am a freelance musician, Elementary school music teacher, brass coach for two local high schools and a p
rivate music teacher! I perform with orchestras and groups all around the Los Angeles area. I have performed in such wonderful venues as the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Sydney Opera house, in which I was able to premier a piece!

I look forward to working with you or your child in helping to start or continue a musical instrument!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I teach lessons, I like to check in with the student to see how their day was and how practicing throughout the week went. I am very patient and will teach at the student's pace. I expect the student to practice during the week, even if for just 10 minutes a day. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically.

For music, I like to use books. When we choose a book to play out of, I like to choose a book together so that the parent and the child are happy about the selection. Books vary based on what the needs are for each student. Books are to be purchased by the parent.

I usually play my instruments with the students, but being a freelance musician, I may need to save my chops for an upcoming gig. Not always, but happens from time to time :)

I also have a 24-hour cancellation/lesson change policy. If you are late for your lesson, I will try to accommodate the time but may have students or rehearsals afterward so it will not always be a guarantee. If you are going to be late, please text me BEFORE the scheduled lesson and make sure I confirm that I received your message. Lessons are to be every week as I DO NOT teach bi-weekly lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson space is in my home w/ seating for parents and music stand for students. I also have a cat and a dog, so if you are allergic, please let me know! The dog and the cat are put away for the lessons as to not distract either one of us! They are pretty cute, though!

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

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical genres of playing but I am able to teach all different styles of music.

Outstanding instructor! Beckie is very positive and encouraging and my son has learned so much in just a few weeks. My son looks forward to his session each week. She is also an amazing musician herself and plays her instrument side by side with my son which allows him to hear and learn the individual notes.

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!

Well look no further, I will help you build a solid foundation of music theory, sight-reading, ear training, and technique while tailoring to your personal needs and goals. All ages and genres are welcome, my only rule is to have fun, so lets get started.

About Bebé

All of my students can expect to improve weekly in their technique and skill level. I teach students to release built up tension and apply fundamental techniques by relaxing and enjoying their time practicing or performing. I can help any student to sing or play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano and voice for 4 years. I can teach students to excel in reading music, sight-reading, ear training, music theory, and performance and technique in not just classical music, but all
genres of music.

As a professional recording artist I frequently take trips to Atlanta and New York for recording and meeting with record labels. I have performed along side bands such as We The Kings, Plaid Brixx, and I have many musical connections such as Jadyn Maria, Katy Perry, Tiyon Christian, D. Smith, and more. I don't only teach my students, I mentor them, create a lasting friendship and help them reach their full potential and level of excellence.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I am a 60 year old man and so, one can imagine my initial reluctance to take up singing lessons at this age. But after the first 2 sessions with Bebé, I knew I was in the right hands. She is every bit the professional that you can trust to do a great job. I was extremely impressed, not only with her amazing vocal talents, but also with her technical skills, knowledge and experience. Bebé assessed my abilities, and set to work quickly and efficiently, and that's where I feel she truly excels. Bebé was patient, took her time to understand my objectives and capabilities, and pushed me just enough to keep gaining my confidence. I only had 5 lessons at this point, and I can already hear and feel the progress. The classes were fun, but Bebé takes her work very seriously, as any true professional would. I'm looking forward to my next sessions.

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

About Pablo
With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment where my students will learn about music as a whole while we talk about the specific subjects the student is interested in. I primarily teach trumpet and songwriting.

Trumpet students can expect noticeable improvement from week to week through my unique teaching approach. Anyone can tell you to practice scales out of method books, but my teaching incorporates a theoretical foundation helping my students understand music as a whole. In my own experience, this has helped me the most in my own trumpet playing.

Songwriting students can expect t
o have their own songs written from month to month as we work to demystify the difficulty of song writing. I have developed my own unique approach to songwriting designed to make the process easy and methodical.

I graduated from Whitman College in 2015 with a degree in Jazz Studies. By that time, I was already teaching and actively gigging in the Eastern Washington area. This year I moved to Portland Oregon where I currently reside and am an active member of Portland's music scene. I have performed in large jazz ensembles, symphony orchestras, pit orchestras, ska bands, salsa groups, and jazz combos.

I will be releasing my debut studio album this year comprised entirely of my own compositions that I have been working on for three years.

My other interests include weight lifting, running, hiking, and cooking.

When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing.

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

About Steven
Hello, I'm Steven! I've been a band geek since 6th grade, and am currently 21 years old. I started playing trombone back then and have since picked up and learned every brass instrument I could get my hands on. I've played with bands of all shapes and sizes, including Symphonic, Marching, Jazz, Rock, New Orleans parade, and more. I've played in school settings with Osborne Middle School, GACS High School and Kennesaw State University and in public performances with bands like The Black Sheep Ensemble (New Orleans style parade music), The Windy City (Chicago cover band), and Trombone Choirs. My favorite genre since middle school has been jazz but I have many close seconds in Funk, Rock, Pop, Chamber music, etc.

I started teaching after class in High School with younger students that wanted help with their playing tests. Over time I realiz
ed that I could relate musical concepts with other interests and experiences to help students understand them more quickly and with a better grasp. Around the same time, I also realized that students like to play the music they are interested in. This is fine if a student likes the music the band is playing, but sometimes I find that the music being played in typical Band class might not quite match the music the student is interested in.

I pride myself in offering personalized music to my students that gives them something THEY want to play, rather than what the band wants them to play. I have found that this encourages individuality not only as a player but also as a person. At the end of the day, my main goal is to get my students to the place where they can play the music they want to play with the sound they are looking for. It's always a pleasure for me to meet musicians and I look forward to meeting you and helping you play your favorite music!
