I have 21 years of experience teaching middle school through high school band students. I have been a head band director for all 21 years, with numerous students earning music scholarships, receiving superior ratings at solo and ensemble festival, as well as positions in all-region and all-state band. My bands have been known for playing well, being selected as an Oklahoma Music Educators' Association Honor group as well as the Music for All National Festival. I am hoping to help students who do not have band classes now due to the school closings, but am happy to teach anyone interested. Students will find me patient and engaging. I absolutely love band and can't wait to teach you or your child!

Craig Amendt is a fantastic teacher. He was my first band teacher ever and taught me private lessons for the first few years on my instrument. He instilled a love of music in me that carried me all the way through college and is still huge part of my life. I’m now a music educator as well and it may have never happened if Craig hadn’t been my first teacher. I highly recommend Craig as a teacher because he is passionate and dedicated, and he will give you the tools to be successful no matter what age or level of player that you are.

I want you to learn to express yourself through the trumpet, to help you master it and have lots of fun in the process! Trumpet was my second musical instrument (my first was my voice!), which I played through most of grade school and into high school. I can help you with good breath support and creating clear, steady tone.

As a teacher he is able to take the student from their level of playing and introduce them to new concepts on the instrument, thus raising their musicianship to much higher levels.

"I began playing trumpet again after a 45 years break (I played in HS). I was concerned because I tend to be very self-conscious and nervous. Holly is amazing, not only because of her technical expertise, but because she has taken all the stress and worry out of learning to play. She has made music what it should have always been ... FUN! I love our lessons together and enjoy practicing. She is a wonderful instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to play an instrument.

I'll be glad to answer any questions anyone may have."

"Definitely recommend Dave as a Trumpet teacher! I'm a musician but had never played trumpet; Dave helped open a totally new side of my musicianship! He is so knowledgable not only in Jazz, but all other genres of music as well. Dave won't just make you a better trumpet player by focusing on technique and learning the instrument, but he'll also make you a better musician overall with his well rounded approach to music and theory. He is also just a super awesome guy and easy to get along with and feel comfortable around. Definitely recommend for any ages or skill levels!"
