Music should be an experience of happiness and joy! Whether you are picking up a trombone for the very first time, preparing for college entrance auditions, or just wanting to grow in your playing, you will receive a personalized lesson plan to meet and surpass your goals.

In my 20 years of musical experience, I have my Bachelor of Music Education (Trombone emphasis) from the Murray State University (Murray, KY). 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.

Through teaching positions from elementary to high school, and playing in numerous bands and genres, I look forward to helping you enjoy and love music as much as I do.

About Andrew

I am a music educator (K-12) and an avid trombone player. I graduated from Murray State University with Bachelor's of Music Education with a emphasis in trombone. My versatility, experience and formal training in classical and jazz will help individualize your goals and performance.

He specializes in blues, rock, improvisation, ‚Äčand songwriting.

My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.

My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!

Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. As a songwriter, I've taught at all levels and studied with some incredible songwriting mentors who've whipped me into shape. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake

I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruc

"Jessica is an excellent instructor and cellist. She has an engaging personality and a creative mind, e.g., explaining concepts several different ways until the student understands. I started new to cello and enjoy lessons, which include technique, theory and individual pieces (separate from the instruction books) that are challenging but fun, satisfying my desire to play familiar classical pieces. I have recommended her to several friends for cello and violin."

"Indigo is great. She has tailored my lessons around the specific areas of the guitar that I'm looking to work on (ranging from theory to improvisation), and as a result I'm developing a fuller understanding of the instrument from the inside out (and outside in, in terms of song work). Patient, flexible, and very chill, too, it goes without saying. Very much recommend!"
