Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Not only do I know how to play all instruments in the clarinet family, but I repaired them for 21 years, so I know the technical side of how the instrument really works, and can quickly diagnose whether an issue is with the player or with the instrument. This is something I am passionate about - having a properly working instrument. I can even offer discounted repairs if the student is within shipping or driving range.

Besides that, I believe making music should be fun! I will choose much of the music with the student so not only is the fun factor going to be high, but the learning factor will be high as well. We will set goals periodically, and as they are met set new ones.

About J.J.

My name is JJ and I love music! Music is not only what got me through the tough Jr High and High School years, it also got me through college and paved the way for all of my career moves ever since. Whether it was repairing instruments, teaching others how to repair instruments, or leading a worship

Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!
Kayla
Sharon takes time to listen to you and cares about you as a person as much as a student.
She has been knowledgeable on any instrument I have done lessons on (flute, clarinet, alto sax, cello, and violin).
Sandra
Shannon has been my triathlon coach and conditioning trainer for 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. My racing times continue to improve, as I continue to aim for longer races. I just completed my first Half Ironman (70.3 miles)! I have never been injured in her care. She really knows what she's doing.

My lessons are always student-specific. That means I change my approach depending on the needs of each individual person I teach. I've been teaching instrumental music both privately and in public schools for over a decade. I have two degrees in music, one in education and the other in Jazz performance. I love to play. If you are serious about learning how to play and understanding what you are doing on the saxophone then contact me.

Thanks

I am new to playing the flute, self-taught for 8 months. Cooper is very personable and I think he spotted my weaknesses quickly. He was very encouraging and gave me a mixture of exercises working on the beginnings of listening and playing with another musician as well as fingering. He is going to get some theory in as well, so that’s hitting all of what is essential for me to move forward.
Cooper B.
Cooper is kind and encoraging and helped my son work through a difficult audition piece. He really related well with my son and made him feel proud of his abilities and skills. I would be glad to recommend Cooper.
