Fun, professional, and relaxed. Experienced instructor since 1988. First paid public performance was in 1983, so I've been at this a while, and love it.

After 3 months with correct practice the student should be able to strum a number of songs and change chords smoothly. After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

Patrick L.

Arden, NC

About Patrick

Hi there, my name is Patrick, and I am now a new resident of the Asheville area. I am a music teacher of Trumpet, Piano, Voice and Sound Recording with more than 20 plus years of experience. Below, I relate some of my experiences and philosophies as a teacher of music since 2002.

*** Lesson Details ***
Trumpet Lessons
I have worked with adults and children, with beginners, and with more experienced players looking for a push or a new direction. I have developed many different teaching methods based on what each of my students wants to get out of lessons. The heart of most lessons I teac
h is learning to play or understand songs. Usually, I rely on my students to select the songs they wish to study, which I then transcribe to make personal arrangements fitted to their abilities. Of course, I will suggest or recommend songs at times. I also supply relevant exercises and music theory to accelerate the learning process.

Piano Lessons
I differentiate between concepts and skills, while stressing the importance of mastering both. As important as it is to understand the intervalic relationships in something like the major scale, this knowledge does little for the pianist if she or he cannot pick out the notes to the different scales in real time. In observing that each person demonstrates unique learning patterns and abilities, I have learned that some people will come to understand the conceptual through mastery of memorized tasks while some will succeed with technical mastery only after achieving some conceptual understanding.
Voice Lessons
Having first begun singing at 22 years old, I know first hand that it’s never to late to start singing. Having some experience in school but not fully as a professional till in my 20′s, I have learned from some of the top professionals in the South Florida area. My first vocal lessons was with Gloria Estefan’s back up singer Jon Secada. Jon has his first hit “Just Another Day” that stayed at #1 for several weeks. His one lesson really helped me use singing in my gigging around town. From that time on, I have used this technique for all my students. focusing on JUST BREATHING, has helped many of my students.

Teaching Sound Recording
Working in the early 1980s with recorded music and computers, I was introduced to the new wave of recording at its birth. At Miami Dade Community College, I taught and assisted students in Composition, Sound Development, and Sound Recording using Mac computers and PC’s. As of this day, I personally teach recording in Logic Pro, Bias Peak and Mastering using Waves plug ins and having finished products in Mp4 format and or CD’s.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mac with logic pro software instruments, piano seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
expect students to provide paper and pencil and put in practice time on their respected instruments at least 30 min a week

*** Specialties ***
Alfred,Hanon,Rubank Advanced Method for instruments.

Phil B.

About Phil

In addition to earning degrees in music from San Francisco State University (B.M.) and The University of North Texas (M.M.) I have completed the teacher education program at Old Dominion University. I continue to engage in a diverse career as a professional tubist. This experience consists of extensive freelance work such as orchestral playing, chamber music occasions and commercial entertainment. More permanent positions include my service in The United States Continental Army Band, Ft. Monroe, VA, and the 380th Army Reserve Band, Richmond, VA and as a musician at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg
, VA during the 2011, 2012 and 2014 seasons. In addition to time spent in fine ensembles such as the Virginia Wind Symphony, University of North Texas Wind Symphony and the University of North Texas Symphony Orchestra, I have had the great fortune of time spent as a marching member of the World Champion Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps.
While pursuing a master’s degree in tuba performance I was active as a private lesson teacher at the middle and high school levels. I continue to teach students privately. Experience in teaching adults includes work as a private ear-training and sight-singing tutor at the collegiate level.

Mr. Becker is fantastic. My son has Asperger's and Phil was wonderfully patient. He often adapted the lesson based on my son's focus. Mr. Becker pushed my son to learn and excel but only as much as he could take without getting frustrated. In a short time, he learned the horn a did really well. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend Phil Becker to anyone.

I have never had any type of music lesson before and online at that. Jon is amazing as an instructor and a human! He is personable and caters to how you will be able to learn best and is motivating and encouraging at the same time. He is an awesome guitar player and really knows his stuff. I went through atleast 20 profiles before I decided to use Jon and I'm glad I did! one of the best online purchases I've made (and I'm a Prime Amazon junkie! :)

I am currently 2nd chair in UNCC's Wind Ensemble and I have been playing trumpet for 9 years now, I started when I was 10.
