Mack R.

Oakland, CA

I have taught brass instruments for may years. On several occasion I was employed to teach all the brass instruments.

About Mack

I have a BS in music education received at Lehman College, Bronx, NY. I am a professional musician/ composer/ arranger.I received my teaching credentials at SFSU and have been a General music teacher as well as a, band teacher. I have studied trumpet with Classical ( Wilmer Wise)and Jazz musician (Bill Hardman) and big band arranging with Frank Foster( saxophonist and arranger with Count Basie Band). At present I am retired and teaching privately.

I have been teaching music for over 50 years as well as being a professional musician/ composer and arranger. I not only know my fundamentals ins
ide and out, but also I know many tricks of the trade. Over the years I have developed special teaching techniques that enable students to make sense out of music and progress rapidly on their instruments.I love playing music and aim at stirring that same kind of excitement abut music in my students.

To each lesson I bring a unique mix, encouraging the student to pursue excellence and also have fun. I am well qualified to teach: woodwinds( oboe, flute, clarinet, all saxophones) brass(french horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba), and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make music interesting to learn. I encourage students to practice daily so they can improve. The more they improve the more fun they can have with music not only alone, but with others.

I am very patient with my students especially with beginners. I know that for them it is like learning a new language. Once they begin to increase their musical vocabulary, they will enjoy what they can do with music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Seating for parents, basement studio, piano, drum set

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should provide their own instruments.

My son can't wait to go back! He typically hate music lessons, but this time he was happy. I also love the fact that Mack didn't waste time with the usual useless speech that other music teachers in the past needed to go into before each lesson. Mack went straight into it, he showed my son exactly how to identify each key and that really made the first lesson better

Great piano instructor! He's very flexible with your schedule and knowledgeable about all genres, including pop, jazz, and classical. Tom will work to understand what your goals are and then will tailor his lessons so you accomplish them. As with all piano lessons, you get out of them what you put in (practice makes perfect!), but Tom will help you to see improvement almost immediately even if you do not have the most consistent home practice schedule. I highly recommend him!

Shane C.

Berkeley, CA

I came to love the tuba after playing it in New Orleans. Tuba can do tons of things a lot of people might not even realize. I play tuba in funk bands, brass bands, and R&B bands. I've had a lot of fun helping tuba players find music they can be passionate about and learn. The tuba can seem daunting, but doesn't have to be difficult.

About Shane

I started my professional career in New Orleans right after high school. There, I learned about the history of jazz music and how it has evolved into music we listen to today. From that experience I met a family that was interested in my playing and hired me to go to Germany, where I taught a young trombone student for a month, discovering my passion for teaching. Teaching him taught me how to facilitate his passion, and help him grow technically and musically. After that I toured for a period with a Balkan band, learning eastern European techniques and styles. I have since played in funk band
s, reggae bands, bebop groups, and New Orleans style brass bands. This has given me a broad understanding of different types of music. I have been giving lessons for a couple years now and developed players who are brand new to an instrument, as well as fine tuning players to help achieve specific goals.

Shane is a good teacher, and not what I expected but I'm very happy. He is not using traditional sheet music or beginner's guides, but rather teaching me to play by learning the chords and scales so that I could eventually play the bass lines for a band, be it New Orleans jazz, jazz, klezmer, etc. I like that he teaches me a lot of this music "theory" and allows me to fill in where I need it in terms of learning scales and chords and fingerings on my own. My only complaint is that he seems to make it up as he goes along, a little preparation might be nice.
