*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.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

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.

"My 1st Trumpet lesson with Katie went well. I need the actual exercise music that
we worked on ?? Also, I was wondering if we could do a lesson somewhere out in the open. Like a hall, church, or bigger room, maybe my apartment ??

Thanks a lot Katie for your expertise, it is much appreciated.

"I first met Andrew when I joined the Temple University Diamond Marching Band. Andrew was the trumpet section leader and breath tech, and he made it his goal to ensure that everyone in the section could improve as much as possible by focusing in on the aspects of each individual's playing. In addition to knowing a lot about the trumpet and trumpet playing, Andrew was exceptionally friendly to everyone he worked with. He was always willing to offer advice not just about trumpet, but life in general, and he has greatly contributed to my trumpet playing and attitude towards life. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking to improve their trumpet playing."
