Students can expect that they will improve with me if diligent and focuses practice is put in every day. I will recommend books and tools to help them improve, as well as fundamental warm-ups and daily practice exercises designed to help them progress as quickly as they can (provided they are done correctly!).
The trombone has a wonderful sound, but there is a bit of a learning curve due to the slide (even though making that glissando/slide sound is a ton of fun). I am dedicated to work with my students to help them navigate the challenges that come from not having valves like the other brass instruments so they can really make the trombone sing!
Whether you are just looking to learn a new skill or make a living as a professional, I am passionate about helping my students to find their path in life as music makers. To me, this means bringing the music off the page, and finding/playing what has not been written in ink. Music is about more tha

I graduated with a degree in music performance in 2019, and have over 13 years of playing experience and 5 years of teaching experience (ranging from student as young as 5 years old). Outside of music, I am a medical student (M.D.). I enjoy using music as an outlet and teach trumpet lessons because it is my passion!
As a teacher, my goal is to help not only facilitate musical interpretation and technical skills on the trumpet but also help foster a student's life-long love for music. I believe that students should not only progress technically but foster a sense of who they are as performers, regardless of their level.
As a performer, I have played in symphony orchestras, in the pit for musicals such as Pippin, Into the Woods, and The Music Man, and private gigs. I've received training in performance anxiety and overcoming fear of public performance and would be happy to discuss techniques.
I offer individualized lessons and am passionate about helping students' achieve their goals!. I try to provide affordable lesson prices so that financial concerns never inhibit students' ability to progress and reach their potential! Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Alex was born May 31, 1987. Since both of his parents were band directors, he grew up in a very musically inclined family. When he was 15 years old, during his freshman year of high school, he started studying percussion. A year later he began studying under Chad Kohler and continued to do so until

I will start off class by doing vocal warm-ups with students and asking them about their practice that week and what they found easy or difficult about the vocal piece we are working on. I will tweak warm-ups to work on the areas they found difficult. We will then check in with our posture and do physical warm-ups to find any areas where we may be holding tension that could impact our vocal performance. We will talk about the proper way to breathe (lower belly) and to avoid constricting or straining our airways in sound productions. Then, I'll have them sing the song through once for me and I will give them notes on each section, demonstrating what they should do to improve that area. Comments can include things about rhythm, pitch, intonation, diction, breath support, delivery, vocal health, placement, and volume control.
I will also work with the students to help them self-identify problems going forward by asking them what they did well and what they can improve upon so that ...
I am passionate about teaching vocal music and stage performance. My first love was musical theatre and then I branched out later in life to classical voice and jazz. However, I can teach voice for any type of music that you have an interest in! I studied music (classical voice) in college through p

-I teach adult beginner cellists who are looking to learn to play the cello at home and/or in church services.
-All students should have a cello, a cello case, a bow, a rockstop, rosin, a music stand, a mind eager to learn, and a heart to praise the Lord.
I have been playing the cello in my church for the past 7 years. While almost every church has guitarists, and a pianist, it is more rare to see a church with a cellist. I believe the cello can offer a unique richness to worship services. I want to do my part in teaching more Christians to play the cello.
Learning to play an instrument in church takes instruction, practice, patience, and the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to teaching you.
I am the only cellist in my church group, I have played with my church every week for the past 7 years, and I have also played at over 17 church conventions. I also have six years of experience playing in my middle school and high school orchestras. I decided to teach beginners cello because I wan

The feedback that I would give is that I wish there was more of a plan for my first lesson. I was simply asked to talk about my musical experience, which is fine, but I wish I was asked to play some scales, riffs, intervals etc. Also, we didn't talk very much about knowing goals for the lesson or for music were so the lesson felt a bit undirected. But music is pretty exploratory so I might be a bit harsh."
I'm a rock singer and prone to scream sometimes. As I've gotten older, I've noticed my voice wears out a lot quicker than it used to. After taking lessons with Laurelanne, she found I never learned proper technique when singing in this style. She showed me how to make adjustments and I've seen a lot of improvement with how long I can sing in my style."
As a vocalist, should you practice singing with a metronome at your side? Read on for St. Augustine, FL teacher Heather L.'s advice... Metronomes are devices that produce sounds in regular, pre-chosen rhythms. Many years ago, the only metronomes were simple gadgets. Though the first one that's even similar to what we now think of as a "modern" metronome was invented in the 19th century, the kind that most adults are familiar with is a mechanical, wind-up metronome. It makes a so …

The title of this article says it all: Why pentaonic scales are essential for guitarists. Learning these scales is an absolute necessity.
