Carmichael, CA
View Full Profile

I have been teaching children and adults for the past 15 years. I have worked in public schools as a band instructor, choir director, orchestra director and general music teacher. My private
horn students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

About Steve
Steve began his musical journey on the piano as a child, later moving on to explore
clarinet and trumpet in band before discovering the French horn in high school.
Though he earned his bachelor of music in horn performance at CSU, Sacramento, he never gave
up the piano, teaching students and accompanying choirs throughout college, and
earning scholarships for both instruments.

Steve has played for a number of musical groups, from orchestras, chamber
groups and community bands to being a pit musician in musical theater and
opera. This year, he will be joining the William Jessup University Wind
Ensemble and playing horn in that group. For the last several years, Steve has
directed the orchestra at his church, and has also arranged hymns and worship music
for church orchestras and smaller ensembles.

Besides teaching piano and hor
n, Steve's musical interests include music theory, arranging, composition, piano ensemble playing and ethnomusicology.

Beginner trombone students. Depending on overall musical experience of the student, the initial focus will be on proper embouchure, beginner music theory, and note reading exercises. Lessons will work in conjunction with other aspects of the students music education, such as music class in school.

About Michael
I am an educator, composer, and arranger from Long Island, New York. I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education from LIU Post. At LIU Post, I studied composition and orchestration with renowned educational composer Carl Strommen, trumpet with Brad Siroky, and conducting with Dr. James McRoy.

I have been teaching privately since high school, and I have taught beginning 5th grade beginning band, middle school band, and high school band. and jazz band in both public and private schools! I have also worked with students with special needs both in school and privately.

I have had a number of works commissioned from me as a composer of educational music for ensembles like the LIU Post Wind Symphony and Manhattan School of Music Precollege Brass Ensemble, among other community and public school groups.

In 2011, I served
as a composer-in-residence with the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Brass Ensemble, and again in 2012 with the Candlewood Middle School 6th Grade Band in Dix Hills, NY. In the summer of 2012, the LIU Post Wind Symphony commissioned a work from me, entitled “Big Sky Country,” which received its world premiere at the John Philip Sousa Memorial Band Shell in Port Washington, New York. The work was then taken on tour and performed overseas in Beijing and Xi’an, China.

I am a winner of two awards from the Global Music Awards (2012) for my works “Big Sky Country,” in the ‘composition’ category and for “Inner City Sounds” in the ‘student band’ category. I continue to write music for educational purposes, and currently list my music on major distributor websites like JWPepper.

Michael is an wonderful teacher! He is extremely patient, very encouraging, informative, personable, and easy to talk to. I have always wanted to play an instrument so I decided to take trumpet lessons. I am very happy Michael and I crossed paths. I work full time and he is very flexible with my schedule. He has coached me not only on how to play, but how to care for my trumpet- today my lesson included how to clean it. I am in awe with the how many instruments he can play. This is also fun for me because after just a few lessons, we are playing duets together! I am also excited that after a short period of time, I am actually reading music. Overall an amazing teacher that I would recommend for any instrument because of his vast knowledge in music!

About Holly S.

Close

Trombone is, and should be, FUN. It's my main instrument, and I have 20 years of experience: both my Bachelor's and my Postgraduate Diploma are in Trombone Performance. If you want someone who knows the instrument inside and out, who can help you with intricate technical issues, and who is well acquainted with trombone repertoire and how our instrument is used in different styles and ensembles, I've got the knowledge and the skills -- and I'll do it all in a way that helps you LOVE playing.

About Holly
My 20 years of musical experience taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results. My teaching style is dynamic and positive; I want you to look forward to your lessons. And I have both the teaching and performing chops to challenge you and impart some serious skills.
I have my Bachelor of Music from the Peabody Conservatory and a Postgraduate Diploma in Trombone Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. I've taught a wide range of students -- from children who've never before picked up an instrument, to accomplished high schoolers, to adults who've always wanted to learn and finally have the freedom to do so.
I enj
oy helping people as much as I enjoy performing, and I'd love the chance to inspire and encourage you however I can.

My daughter's lesson with Holly was amazing. My daughter started playing trumpet at the age of 6. I bought her a used trumpet and she basically taught herself how to read music and how to play. By the time she was in middle school, after several years of elementary school band class, where everyone learns an instrument, my daughter had grown bored of her trumpet. She was great at it, but there was no challenge and very little inspiration for her to play. When she met Holly for her lesson that all changed. She was able to talk with Holly and share with her many of her trumpet and band experiences. Holly was enthusiastic and positive as an instructor. She really was able to connect with my daughter(a teenager) and encourage her. My daughter left her lesson feeling very interested in trumpet again and wanting to explore a variety of music she could play on her trumpet. For the next few days she was listening to various trumpet players online and different music styles, at Holly's recommendation.
I can confidently recommend Holly as an instructor for any student who wishes to play trumpet. I believe she is the perfect instructor for my middle school daughter.

As a teacher, I want to inspire passion. The trombone is my passion and I want to share it with you. Music is about creativity and expression and I want to help every one of my students experience this. I cater all my lessons to the student, but also want to help students establish a strong grasp of the fundamentals of music and the trombone. I hold a Master of Music in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone from the University of Miami, have worked in a variety of settings and styles, have been teaching for over 5 years, and can't wait to share my experiences with you!

About Hayden
I am a professional trombonist, composer, arranger, and teacher in South Florida. I graduated from the University of Miami with a Masters Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone Performance and received a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas in Jazz Trombone Performance.

The goal of my lessons is to help students enjoy music. Through listening, singing, clapping, and playing, I take students through material that we both like and help them expand their abilities and understanding. I cater my material to each person's needs while including techniques to improve fundamentals.

As a professional musician, I perform a huge variety of styles for many occasions. As a college student, I studied traditional and modern jazz styles as well as Afro-Cuban and Brazilain genres. Between degrees, I performed on the cruise ships
of Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines around the world for thousands of guests. During this time, I developed an understanding of classic Motown, Pop, R&B, Broadway Musical, and Rock styles. I was a member of the award-winning Bad Cactus Brass Band in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ and a member of the Los Wedos Salsa band in Denton, TX. I use all this experience to expose students to a wide variety of musical possibilities and techniques to further their musical journey.

Hayden has been teaching private Trombone lessons to my 13th year old son for over a year now. Hayden is organized and reliable; he is always on time, and has helped my son sound great. Hayden is passionate about Jazz, and knowledgeable. My son enjoys having a teacher that is as passionate as he is, and younger that the usual Trombone teachers we have found. :-)
Hayden has prepared my son for All State competitions, and for many concerts with his school and/or the jazz band my son performs outside of school. I recommend Hayden 100%!!!

About Julianna
Dear Student,

I am so excited you want to take music lessons! If you love music, we'll have a lot of fun learning together. My best memories are from playing with friends in band and orchestra. Playing the flute took me to college and to visit Europe, even to meet my best friend and my husband! I love to listen to and teach all kinds of music and can't wait to hear what your favorites are. I studied to be a classical flutist so I play a beautiful silver flute in the orchestra but my husband and I also love popular music. In our group, "Mr & Mrs Music" I play a hot pink flute and he plays an electric cello! We mix classical music, pop, and movie hits and have so much fun performing in our community. I can't wait to meet you and make music together!

Dear Parents,

Thank you for giving your child the gift of music! Even if th
ey don’t recognize it right away, they are so fortunate to have your support. As the founder and owner of NOVA Music Academy, I believe that children always win when parents and teachers unite to provide support. We hope that by inviting you into the NOVA Music Academy family, your unique child will find joy in learning music and grow to appreciate the deeply expressive power of art for a lifetime.

I can personally attest to the joy that music has brought my life, including full scholarships for a bachelors, master's and doctoral degree and I could never have done it without my amazing flute teachers. I'm looking forward to repaying their investment into the next generation of musicians, I sincerely hope your child is one of them! My website contains a full bio, resume, and recordings of my playing and testimonials from parents and students.

Having Julie for a flute teacher greatly improved my daughter's proficiency and love for music. Julie was very professional and thorough in her lessons. Most importantly, my daughter was inspired to practice and improve. After taking lessons with Julie, my daughter improved to the level that she began to be hired to perform for Weddings, Church Masses, and Catholic School Masses.

At the National Flute Workshop, Julie helped me to better myself not only as a flute player, but as a whole musician. I'm her history class I learned about different tuning systems, and then she helped me turn that knowledge into practical application on the flute. Julie's teaching helped me play more confidently.

I want to help you realize your playing goals! Wether they are as simple as learning your favorite song or as big as playing a recital at Carnegie Hall. I will work with you to develop a methodical plan that you can follow that is specifically tailored to your skills and goals, so that you can expand your technical skill set, tackle more difficult music, and become more expressively fluent on the instrument. All of my lessons are recorded free of charge and privately available to you so that you can listen back to them. I will provide most music, method books, and resources. Let's get started!

About Oliver
I grew up in Houston, Texas and began playing trombone in 6th grade and never looked back. I have two degrees in music from the Manhattan School of Music and the Juilliard School. After I completed my masters I was invited to play with the Finnish Radio Symphony in the beautiful city of Helsinki, Finland for a season where I had the opportunity to join them on a European tour and Japan tour ( lots of Sushi and Wienerschnitzel!)

I am currently a member of Ensemble Connect at Carnegie Hall which is a two-year fellowship program "for the finest young professional classical musicians in the United States that combines musical excellence with teaching, community engagement, advocacy, entrepreneurship, and leadership."

I have taught over 60 private students from beginners to adults. I taught for the Harmony Program of New York for two yea
rs, and while I was at Juilliard I was the Morse and Music Advancement Program trombone teaching fellow.

But most of all I enjoy expressing myself through my instrument, having fun performing with friends for all sorts of audiences, and exploring new pieces of music.
