Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

He’s very patient and kind especially for 2 active little girls.

Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

The concept is simple: empowerment to generate mastery on your instrument. I like to work with you at your level, from beginner and up. My goal is to not only help you understand the mechanics of the instrument, but to empower you to create as limitlessly as possible on it. I will be working with you on things such as rhythm, ear training, embouchre development, breath control, sight reading, understanding musical notation and terminology and beyond through a few of my own techniques.

I have found the best approach to doing this is by selecting music that you like to listen to and play, as it is much more fun to practice something that you enjoy rather than doing busywork to build skill.

Hi, I'm Tyler! Born and raised in Roswell, New Mexico, I am the son of a band director. That being said, I have literally been involved in music since I was an infant! I played trombone, bass trombone, and bass guitar all the way through high school, and went to New Mexico State University where I

Tyler arrived early, spent lots of time with my unruly daughter, and kept her on track! He's a good combination of fun/playful but also has a natural authority so that my daughter actually listens to his instruction. Well done and thank you Tyler!
Kerry
Great first lesson - looking forward to the next one.
Nicolas O.
I feel like I learned a lot in an hour and he really helped me find an anchor point that I can go back to if I am stuck on a note. I realized that he went over every proven method that I learned throughout my experiences from elementary school to highschool and then added on to them by explaining how these methods help. He even showed me methods usually taught to college musicians.

The reason I always believed in private lessons is because no matter how few or how many you take, the learning process gets expedited immensely.

I definitely would recommend this teacher for learning a brass instrument.

Hi there! I'm Alex and I have had a passion for teaching others for as long as I can remember! My main goal is to make learning a fun and individualized journey!

Some info about me:

I started working with children/youth at a very young age which taught me patience, kindness and understanding. I have worked with families with children ages 1 month to 20 years old, children with special and extraordinary needs, and many different demographic and socio-economic backgrounds. I am currently a High School Special Education Teacher with my Masters Degree in Mild/Moderate Disabilities.

Music has always held a special spot in my heart! From a young age, I explored the musical world until I fell in love with the French Horn. I spent time learning not only in school bands, but in youth orchestras and in the SDSU Wind Symphony as section leader. During my time at SDSU, I also taught private French Horn lessons for 4 years.

I am also a High School volleyball coach (women and mens ...

I was impressed with how she conducted her lessons, even though her children were home. They were very respectful of our lesson time and never had an interruption. That says a lot about Amy's dedication to focus on her students."

"Chris is a fantastic musician and teacher. My son began taking lessons from him as a beginner French horn player. Chris brought his skill level up quickly and challenged him to play in the county solo and ensemble competition. The results were a supperior performance, with aclades from the judge to my son for learning all the notes so quickly (5 months). Thanks Chris you have made a life long impression on my son."

"Olivier has without a doubt helped my daughter improve in ways that I (as a former French Horn player) could not. He is patient and pleasant as well as intelligent. Most importantly he has given my daughter the necessary tools she's needed. He doesn't just say "play higher" or "do it again". Instead he tells her exactly HOW she can get better and exactly WHAT techniques she needs to do to improve. I have seen a noticeable difference in 8 lessons and look forward her future success with Olivier."
