View Full Profile

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas
Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children. Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

Nicholas really tailored the lessons to what I needed. They weren't cookie-cutter lessons, and I appreciated that. He answered all the questions I had, and helped me understand some concepts that I never would have gotten just learning online. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Nicholas was very patient, took the time to write down information that was helpful (very helpful). Nicholas understood where I was in reference to me knowing nothing about the guitar and he is very knowledgeable with the music trade. He was very clear and kept things simple. I truly enjoy his instructions, can't wait for the next lesson.

**Currently accepting new students of all ages and instruments. Also able to do lessons every other week. ** (4/17/18)

As a professional brass musician, I have been teaching brass instruments for over twelve years.

For the beginner level, I have introduced many students to their first instrument ensuring that fundamentals are in place. At the intermediate level, I have helped many students advance in competitions and seat assignments within their band program. As a collegiate educator, I have given masterclasses at universities and private lessons to music performance students preparing for auditions and solo recitals.

I have taught online lessons for over four years and have used multiple online communication platforms to teach effective lessons. My students truly enjoy the online interaction during their lessons.

I have taught a wide variety of ages - everyone from 10 years old to 76 years old. One of the great joys I have in teaching is that each student brings their

First lesson today and things went smoothly. Jeremy took time to determine what my son could and couldn't do and built the lesson around those skills. My son's attention can drift but Jeremy was attentive, patient, and made real world connections.........which I appreciate.

Teach the fundamentals of the instrument. Apply the use of the instrument for any style of music.

About Walter
I have a natural ear for music since I was a child. My sight reading improved when I attended Shaw University. I improved on the trombone and trumpet in college. My Music Theory developed with learning and playing the piano.

Basically I provide a lesson plan based on Individual student's needs. For example if a student has a problem with the tonation of their sound. Then I would provide a step by step process on developing a better sound.

I am a teacher who teaches so that the student can understand and learn. If the student does not learn then that doesn't make me a teacher. My students success is a reflection of me.

About Alexis S.

I am all about teaching the whole musician, meaning that you will not be learning just trombone but all the skills necessary to be the best musician you can be! This includes ear training, music theory, sight-singing and more.

About Alexis
I believe in teaching all aspects of musicianship when learning an instrument such as music theory, ear training, and singing, just to name a few. I have been private teaching for more than 6 years and I specialize in trombone, music theory/ear training, and piano lessons and have taught a variety of levels. I provide a very inviting environment for students to learn and grow.

* In case of allergies, I will mention that I have 2 cats in my home. Let me know if this is a problem so we can work out a different location.

New Orleans, LA

The Trombone is the single most powerful acoustic instrument in terms of size and efficiency. The thing's a cannon, and one just has to know how to use it right. My lessons will focus on enriching tone, increasing lung capacity, improving slide dexterity, strengthening embouchure, sharpening intonation (pun intended) and having fun with the mightiest of all wind instruments.

About Kenny
I am a professional working musician and a licensed K-12 instructor in the State of Louisiana, having graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Music Education, with a Minor in Jazz Studies in the spring of 2016. I play the guitar (electric, steel/ nylon string acoustic), the trombone (tenor/ bass), and the drums (kit).
Guitar students can and should expect to improve in some facet every week after every lesson. Every person approaches music differently, and thereby, approaches the guitar differently. Different bodies mean different physical methods for successful playing. Different brains mean different musical realities- and whatever the state of yours is, I want to help you make it better.
There are so many different ways to be musical, and as your teacher I want to make you aware of them, and help you use every
tool in your toolbox, as well as give you some new ones. Music is not too vast to understand, and all it takes is one little push to be off on your way, making your own musical adventures.
As someone who has thrived in most ensemble scenarios from Concert Bands, Orchestras, Big Bands, to Rock Bands and Jazz Combos, I can help prepare you for any musical undertaking. I love students who love music and want to get better at it, regardless of what style it might be in.
So whoever you are, whatever you like, and wherever your skills are at, I want to help- to impart you with skills and knowledge you might need to play at the level you want. I look forward to meeting you and helping you be even more awesome!

I am Kenny's former jazz teacher at Lexington High School. I've had Kenny in classes, and also invited him to be on my staff for a summer jazz camp I run. I can say with absolute confidence that Kenny is an excellent musician, an enthusiastic and engaging young man, and he's great with kids. I recommend you give him a try!
