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 classes 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

Trumpet is a wonderful instrument for both the young and young-at-heart. I have been playing trumpet for most of my life, and teaching it for 14 years.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet
Clarinet
Alto Saxophone
Piano

I found Gary by chance, but not by accident. Music had been absent from my life for over a decade by the time I met Gary. To say he understands my soul is an understatement. Gary is no ordinary music instructor. He possess a gift for teaching something more than the technicalities of theory and notes. His style is unique and personalized partially due to his incredible life experience in the music industry but more so due to his keen intuition, talent, and true love of helping a musician reach their full potential. I highly recommend Gary to all those who desire to fulfill their musical dreams, whatever they may be. Gary will guide you on your musical journey.

Gary is an absolutely amazing teacher, he makes me feel extremely comfortable when singing and playing. He's helping me improve my overall music knowledge and focusing on what I personally would like to learn.

I have been teaching trumpet for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

I've been playing trumpet for 10 years and I have been teaching for 3 years. I specialize in classical music and in jazz. I make sure that within the first few lessons the student can be in a goal oriented mindset with both short term goals and long term goals that will play out in their success as musicians.

About William
Hello future student, my name is William Berue and I am in my second year at Arizona State University where I am currently studying Trumpet Performance. I am currently in Tempe Az until next Summer where I can teach you at the ASU School of Music, online, or travel to you.

My primary style of music is classical but I do have experience teaching and playing in jazz bands. I have had students who are playing in the top bands at their school's. My focus is to have my students learn that music is suppose to be fun. And, other than the playing aspect, learning and improving is also fun to see and fun to hear for everybody.

William is probably one of the only players that I've seen understand the ins and outs of trumpet playing at his age. He really helped me out early into high school and has continued to inspire me in trumpet playing. While taking a lesson he evaluates every aspect of playing and gives lots of instruction that applies to much of trumpet playing. The inspiration he gives is the most essential trait he shares with students. William is a positive influence and an amazing teacher!

I was hesitant at first to take lessons from someone I found online, but I'm extremely glad I chose William. Not only is he a fantastic player and knowledgeable teacher, but he is easy going and an overall great person to be around. He takes the lessons at a comfortable pace, and will always be honest about your playing. I would recommend him to everyone in the area, after only a few lessons, I can already see a difference in my playing, I've never been more excited to pick up my horn. If you're considering finding a teacher online, he would be a great choice, no matter the skill level.

Leandro was energetic and approachable right from the start. My five year old was so excited and we originally thought he might not have the attention span for more than 1/2 hr. But my little boy was mesmerized by Leandro. Such great energy! He made it easy enough for my 5 year old to comprehend and even wrote down easy step by step instructions for practicing at home!

He is a great teacher, always manages to make the lessons exiting, using many different methods from classic to jazz and even practising improvisation.
He is very good in detecting your flaws and adapts the lessons focusing on what you need or whish to improve.
I strongly recommend him!
