About Jesse
*Disclaimer*
I'm currently not taking beginner students on guitar, bass, drums, piano, or ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Andrew and Melissa though. Please check out their profiles for the following topics:

My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Ar
ea.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Once or twice a year we'll also stage a larger event off site for more individual students and bands classes to perform.
Adult students also occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

This was my son's first lesson, and he is looking forward to playing his trumpet and coming back for more lessons. I was hoping to spark his interest in music and so far so good.

After a break of more than a year I wanted to restart my Trumpet lessons. I chose Jesse based on the reviews and Jesse did not disappoint. He is very patient and focused teacher. I liked his structured method and tools he uses. I was able to get back in groove in no time.

Highly recommended.

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, solo rep., orchestral music, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

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

Learn how to master the art of tuba playing with a current Juilliard student. David Freeman, 21, has studied with Alan Baer of the New York Philharmonic for the past 4 years, and is expected to graduate from The Juilliard School in 2018. Originally from Los Angeles, David has had the pleasure of taking lessons with and working alongside many of LA's top tuba players, including Jim Self, Norm Pearson, Jeff Anderson, Scott Sutherland, and John van Houten. His lessons focus on preparing students of any level to take auditions, apply for schools/colleges, and play in bands/orchestras.

About David
David currently attends The Juilliard School in New York City, pursuing a bachelor of music degree in tuba performance. His primary teacher is tubist Alan Baer, of the New York Philharmonic. Before his acceptance into Juilliard, David studied and worked with many professional musicians throughout Los Angeles, CA. He has had the privilege of taking lessons, attending master classes, and performing with some of the world’s best tubists including Jim Self, Roger Bobo, Norm Pearson, Jeff Anderson, and John Van Houten. He studied primarily with freelance trombonist Amy Bowers, of USC.

Though he is a full time student and member of the Juilliard Orchestra, David also has had many performance opportunities outside of school. In 2014, he performed the Vaughan-Williams Tuba Concerto with the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, and since then, he
has had the pleasure of performing with the Brooklyn Symphony, Mannes College, Weill-Cornell, Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, and the Altino Brothers at Carnegie Hall.

David's brass quintet, Apex Brass, regularly performs in prestigious venues all across New York, including Alice Tully Hall, New York Supreme Court, Morgan Library, and various museums.

About Andrew
Hello, my name is Andrew! I am 19 years old and a music student at Kennesaw State University. I currently am a Music Performance major with a concentration in Tuba and Euphonium, euphonium being my primary instrument. I have been playing euphonium since I was 11 and tuba since I was 12, starting in middle school band. As a performer, I found a great deal of success in being selected as a member of honor ensembles in Georgia all throughout middle school and high school, and performing in many gigs since I started attending college in the Fall of 2016. As a young musician myself, I find it very easy to connect and understand with my younger students, mainly because I remember what it is like to be in their shoes very recently in my life. I think you will find me to be a fun and lovable teacher/friend if you decide to start taking lessons wi
th me. The most important thing to me is not only that my students are progressing and become successful musicians, but also that they enjoy making music more, driving them to be better themselves.

Successful teacher with 11 years teaching experience. My students have consistently gone on to become successful musicians at the state and collegiate levels earning scholarships to some of the best music schools in the nation. You will be challenged to be among the very best! I know what it takes to overcome obstacles and be a successful musician! My experience includes participation in award-winning ensembles, studying with world-class orchestral musicians, and performing with some of the most well-known names in the world of tuba.

About Brian
I am a band director of 11 years. I have taught and performed professionally in the Jackson, TN and Memphis, TN regions for 7 years and have been active as a director in Florida for 4 years.

I graduated from the University of Memphis in 2007 with a masters of music in performance. While at Memphis, I studied with Charles Schulz (principal tubist, Memphis Symphony Orchestra), John Mueller (euphonium), and David Spencer (trumpet). I also had the opportunity to perform with world class tubist Jens Bjorn-Larsen. I was also awarded the Clement Santi Memorial Brass Scholarship.

During my teaching tenure in west Tennessee, I had students earn the top chairs at All-State, win the concerto competitions, be accepted to numerous schools of music (including Northwestern University, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee, Belmont University
, University of Mississippi), and be awarded the highest scholarship for entering freshmen in the Rudi Scheidt School of Music (Memphis).

During my tenure in west Tennessee, I had the privilege of leading my ensembles to earning numerous awards including Superior and Excellent Ratings. I am in the process now of building a young band program to be equally successful.

I know what it means to fail. I know what it means to succeed. I know what it takes to bridge the gap between the two—dedication, hard work, and a desire to succeed.
