Beckie is so supportive and encouraging for our beginner, who is now playing Mozart Concertos in the 6th grade. Zero stress for our daughter. She Passed her audition as well in the 5th grade for Junior Winds. Highly recommend!

Beckie is fantastic! Technically proficient, excellent teacher and highly inspiring! My son has made incredible progress over a few short months.
Zachary
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.

My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

Private French Horn Teacher

I have been teaching for over 5 years and love working with horn players of all levels. I realize that each student is unique and always approach individual lessons with my student's particular goals in mind. I have a basic curriculum that I use in order to build a solid musical foundation for my students, but I am open to working on whatever kind of music or repertoire that they may enjoy. I love being able to expand my students' knowledge and appreciation of the world of music. It is always exciting to me when a student achieves a goal they habe set or learns a new skill that helps them in their musical expression.

About Rachel

I am a freelance horn player with a passion for teaching both horn and piano. I have a Bachelor's of Music from The University of Arizona and a Master's of Music from California State University Long Beach. I have been teaching privately and in group settings for over 5 years and really enjoy g

Marcus is a very skilled and very knowledgeable horn player and teacher. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. It is difficult to find a teacher that can articulate and describe how to play the horn as clearly and precisely as he does. you’re in good hands with Marcus!
Maya
Marcus’s musical intuition is amazing. He was able to articulate some of my troubles playing and provide me with new tools to work on them. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to improve any aspect of their playing. Bonus: he’s super nice and eases any nervousness you might having playing in front of people.
Ashley
Marcus is a phenomenal horn player and after just a few lessons with him, my playing has improved immensely. Great teacher!

Pasquale is an immensely qualified instructor. I was surprised at how well instruction can be provided online, and that must come from a wealth of teaching experience and deep knowledge of the instrument and the process.
JiHae
very patient and encouraging. My son (12yo) practices everyday! I wish I had started the lesson earlier. can't be happier than this.
Monique
I am a very mature(read old) student and I had been wanting to learn to play the trombone. The catch was that I had never taken lessons and could not read music. Pasquale was absolutely unflapped by this. He had the patience of a saint, had the ability to make me feel comfortable and was 1000% encouraging in my quest. Oh and also by the way...he knows his stuff and is gifted in his ability to teach it in a way that I could understand and be comfortable. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!!!

Nathan was great! We lost internet at our house during the last 10 minutes of the lesson and Nathan was quick to solve the problem by adding another 10 minutes on to the end of our next lesson. It's nice to know that he has the flexibility and willingness to do that when things happen that are out of our control. And 2020 is often out of our control, Am I right?!

"My lesson with Erica was such an encouraging time. Not only does she know her instrument craft very well, but her actual teaching skills were professional level. This is what stood out the most. Many people can tell you about instruments because they “are a professional musician”, but she can actually teach you how to become a musician.
She taught the lesson in a way that kept me engaged and kept it from feeling like a simple “private lesson”. Her humor and personality were infectious. Ask her about her “big booty Judy whole rests”.

I always leave with a task to take home and practice that builds upon the previous lessons. It’s encouraging seeing someone that has organized their teaching in such a way that the student can follow along and see their own improvement each week. Grateful for someone who cares about her students growth along with the music itself."
