*Brass teacher with 20 Years of performance and music education

Hello, and welcome to brass lessons!

My goal is to help you the learner feel empowered with resources, practice skills, and confidence enough to continue learning your instrument and reach the next level with or without help. I truly believe that anyone can learn to play an instrument!

Teaching, learning, and music are passions of mine! Whether you are a beginner who has never played an instrument before, or an experienced musician, I have experience with all levels and am thrilled to teach you.

Euphonium is my primary instrument, but I have experience teaching and performing on all of the brass instruments, and competed on a national level at the Leonard Falcone Festival two times!

I have taught instrumental music for 16 years in the public schools, and have taught privately for over 20 years. I have my bachelors in Music Education, and my masters in conducting.

About Anthony

Hi, I’m Teacher Tony, and I’m from Illinois, and I love teaching music! I started playing when I was 12, and music changed my life! I have taught music to people of all ages. I really enjoy teaching students who need a little encouragement and love helping them feel good about what they are doing.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. Teaches the whole person, not just the musician. Emphasizes in expressive playing and building confidence in students. Very methodical; will address an issue in various ways until he finds a way the student understands, and won't give up on a student. A life-long student himself, he's always learning new techniques to improve his practice. If you're looking to learn an instrument AND do something meaningful with that knowledge, I couldn't recommend him more.

I love what I do! Music is a gift and something we can all enjoy as long as we live!

I believe making music is about having fun. Making music with others, studying recordings or playing music with yourself at home is all just parts of the fun that music has to offer. Lessons with me will be custom-tailored to emphasize the parts of trumpet playing that make you excited about music. So, whether you’re an absolute beginner, or have previous experience, I want to help you discover a deep connection with music. Together, we’ll explore the music of Gustav Mahler, Louis Armstrong, British Brass Band, and more!

Frank
Our 3rd grade class enjoyed a 6-week virtual class with Svend. He shared his knowledge and experience about jazz with us. We all learned a lot! I recommend Svend!
Carlos
Svend is one of the most genuine people I have met thus far. His passion for music and especially brass music is something rarely seen nowadays. I had the good fortune of meeting him at California State University Northridge when he conducted our brass ensemble there. His knowledge and experience being from Denmark gives him a very unique perspective about playing that few other musicians can compete with. Very highly recommended.
Megan
Svend is a very fun and engaging music teacher who always gives 110% to his students. He tailors his lessons to the needs of his individual students and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

"I've had many teachers in the past who only taught me how to perform well with the emphasis on technicality and repeptition; however, Tom created space for me to appreciate each and every bar rather than focusing on finishing a song. As a student who has become well-adjusted to structure, I learned the beauty of improvisation informed by theory through Tom. He is attentive, passionate, and always makes sure I got the concept he's teaching. He has a rare gift of creating such an intimate, peaceful environment where I can feel at ease and really thrive in playing music. It was in these calm moments my passion for jazz sparked more and more. I'm truly thankful to have had Tom as my mentor/teacher.
