I focus equally on fundamentals, tone production, proper air support, intonation and technique.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

As a part of my music education certification, I am trained to teach beginner levels in all brass instruments.

About William
William C. is currently a freelance trombonist, teacher, and arranger based in Denver, CO. This fall, he has started doctoral work at the University of Colorado - Boulder. He completed the bachelor’s degree in music education and performance at Texas Tech University, and the Master’s in trombone performance, and a Performer’s Certificate, at the University of Denver. His extensive resume a wide variety of concerts, clinics, master-classes, performances, and recording sessions; most notably: the TTU Vernacular Music Center, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, Colorado Wind Ensemble, Denver Municipal Band, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, and the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. Mr. C. has taught all ages of students on trombone, euphonium, tuba, and chamber ensembles for 6 years. He was the brass section leader for the world premiere of the full-length
theatrical dance show Dancing at the Crossroads and his arrangements have been played by chamber groups throughout northern Colorado.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are geared towards a set of goals that are created between the student's wants and my expectations for them to be successful at what the student wants to achieve. For each student, I use a different set of pedagogical tools designed to get them to the goals they want. The main goal I have for all my students is that their fundamentals on their instrument will be at the level that they can complete their goals with ease. Over their time with me, they will have the skills to coach themselves when they practice and tackle any music they come across.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to provide and music stand and their music. These are both things that they need to have at their home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I teach and perform both jazz and classical music. Almost any style that uses a trombone or brass instruments, I have performed in and have a strong foundation in.

I am former music major and long time amateur trombonist and was looking for someone to help bring my playing (back) up to the next level. Bill has been amazing at being able to spot areas for improvement and clearly provide several suggestions and approaches to correct them. Very pleased and highly recommend!

Bill is a stand-up guy. My 11-yr-old beginner daughter is happy with her lessons so far and he interacts with me in a friendly and polite manner. He is respectful of our time and does what he says he's going to do. Can't ask for much more. We are looking forward to a summer of trombone lessons with him.

Hired Kristen to help our son Eliot who was played French horn but was really interested in doing drum corps. I have to say, my husband and I eavesdropped on their lessons and Kristen really is a very patient and encouraging teacher. Our son was really happy and even I could tell he improved during his time studying with her. Would highly recommend.

Kristen was my horn tutor during my year of study abroad. I arrived in the country with one goal, to march in a drum and bugle corps for my age out year. It would be an understatement to say she really helped me make the most of my musical experience in the country.

I was really impressed. Kristen draws on the richness of her own performing experiences and she has a natural talent for teaching. I always left her lessons with fresh energy, a new challenge and just enough technical and musical direction to be pushing beyond my comfort zones as a musician.

I don't want to hammer the zero-to-hero story, but with Kristen's help I went from no marching experience, to marching on mellophone in a world class drum and bugle corps that summer. It was the most amazing year of musical development, both outdoors and in a solo and concert ensemble settings, and I owe a large part of that to Kristen for her supportive approach, flexibility and, of course, her expertise.

I should add, she's really relatable and I had great fun during lessons. 10/10 would take lessons again if I were in the right country!

I use a variety of materials to best fit what the student needs and would like to get out of taking lessons. I enjoy teaching and playing music and I try to make sure my students have fun as well!

About Phillip
Hello! My name is Phillip M. and I have been playing the Horn for 15 years now. I started back in elementary school and haven't looked back since. After high school, I went to Central Michigan University where I earned my Bachelor of Music in Horn Performance while studying under Dr. Bruce Bonnell. While I was at CMU, I performed with the Symphony Band, Wind Symphony, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Marching Band, Horn Choir, and a Horn Quartet. I then went to Western Illinois University where I studied under Dr. Randall Faust and earned my Masters in Horn Performance. While at WIU I performed with the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Brass Ensemble, and Horn Ensemble. I also played with several local organizations while at WIU including the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Monmouth Civic Orchestra, Quincy Community Theatre, and
the Knox-Galesburg Symphony. I also have solo experience and have put on a junior recital, senior recital, two graduate recitals, and I performed the Hindemith Horn Sonata with the WIU Symphony Orchestra as a Concerto Competition winner as well as participate in many horn studio recitals during my college career. I am now living in Rochester Hills where I have been teaching private lessons, teaching Horn sectionals to local schools, and performing in several local orchestras including the Oakland Symphony Orchestra and Macomb Symphony Orchestra. I am willing and happy to teach all levels of musicians and I hope you consider me if you are interested.

My teaching philosophy lies within student-centered learning. Developing an efficient technique for the instrument is vital to the peak performance, and based on my studies and credentials I can work with every student to develop strong foundations in horn playing and their musical abilities. The horn is a FUN instrument to play and a strong teacher is essential to progressing in studies for a performance at any level. The approach I use is positive, challenging, and Socratic in method. I strive to balance out the student's needs and goals to promote a successful pathway to performing at their very best. Through thoughtful etudes, exercises, and key repertoire I am able to take the student to the next level. Beginners, enthusiasts, and serious students are all welcome!

I have been teaching horn for 8 years at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. And I have studied with some of the best orchestral horn players around. Jim Smelser, second horn of the Chicago Symphony, was my primary teacher and I have performed along side him in that orchestra. I specialize in technical issues, but I always put emphasis on the music. Regardless of your skill level I feel that we can work together to get you to any level of musicianship you desire!

About payton
I am a freelance horn player and I have been the horn for 15 years. However, I have been involved in music for my entire life. I earned my Bachelor's degree from East Carolina University and I just recently received my Master's degree from Depaul University where I studied with Jim Smelser, second horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. While I was still in North Carolina, I was on the substitute horn list for the North Carolina Symphony as well as assistant/utility horn in the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle. I performed in various other freelance groups in the Raleigh area and played regularly as second horn in the NC Ballet Academy's production of "The Nutcracker." While in School I was a finalist in multiple solo and concerto competitions, including the NC Symphony's young artist competition. Since moving to Chicago and studying wit
h Jim Smelser, I have had the opportunity to perform with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra which was an absolute dream come true.

Besides performing, I have been teaching for 6 years at various skill levels. I enjoy teaching and working with students to figure out the best ways for them to learn new skills. I have my own tricks that I like to use to fix technical issues, but I like to think of lessons as a more collaborative process. I am dedicated to my students and will do everything I can to help fix any problems, whether it be technical, musical, or even personal, I want to help.

Music is such a passion for me and few things make me happier than playing my horn. More than anything, I want to be able to share this passion with anyone who is interested in learning!
