About Kimberly
Kimberly was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. After starting the flute and piano at the age of 8, she knew she had found something she loved and wanted in her life forever. At age 12, she added the saxophone and clarinet to her repertoire of instruments. After completing her Bachelors degree in Flute Performance at the University of Arizona she moved to Los Angeles to work on her Masters degree at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). There was where she fell in love with contemporary music and has devoted her life to sharing her love for it with others.

Clarinet has been my main instrument since I was in 6th grade. I took private lessons in middle school all the way through college as a music major. I can work with students just getting started or more advanced students who need help with band music or solos.

About Chelsea
I have a Master's in Music Technology from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and a Bachelor's in Music (Technology and Recording) from the University of Indianapolis.
I started on the piano when I was in elementary school. I began playing the clarinet, my primary instrument, in 6th grade. I then started playing the saxophone in 8th grade and started playing the flute in high school.
I have performed on all of these instruments in various types of concerts and have taught lessons for the past five years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can give lessons in person (my house or yours) or online! Lesson prices vary based on location.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music and some sight-reading materials. I expect students to have their instrument, a music stand, and to buy music and method books as needed.

Get ready for band in a relaxed friendly but focused environment. The foundation of music lessons is to develop good ears and good time feel (groove). These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of clarinet basics are what I am hoping to get started in the first 2-3 lessons. After that we'll also devote time to the kind of music that inspired you to look me up. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and clarinet player, and that I can show you some music I think is cool.

I enjoy helping young musicians prepare for auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships. I have also had success helping adults get back into things and have success in community bands.

About Jordan
*Experienced teacher and professional musician...
*Military, Teacher, and early bird discounts available, up to 15% off. Use the ask a question feature for details :)
-Over 6,000 lessons taught to over 300 students.
-Over five years of teaching experience in classroom settings: K-5 general music, middle and high school band, under graduate music history, directing college music ensembles
-Performed with:
Great Good Fine Ok, 10,000 Maniacs, The Mighty Untouchables, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess, Gaslamp Quarter Jazz Orchestra, and many more.
-Students have included: ages 4-96, beginners with no experience, undergraduate music majors, scholarship award winners, members of the San Diego Youth Symphony program, many locals in San Diego, and online students from around the world :)

My mission is to provide a positive musical experience f
or all students. For some this includes rigorous preparation for an audition of some kind, for others it may be an introduction to music fundamentals to foster better listening skills and greater artistic appreciation. All students will be challenged to improve their listening, timing, and technique. All students will learn to play songs that they love.

Recommendations for best results: make a three-month commitment to weekly lessons, and work up to 30 minutes of daily practice. This formula guarantees results. Bring your instrument, music books, and a binder with sheet protectors ☺

*Scheduling policy: to avoid being charged for a lesson - One week notice is required to cancel, skip, or "roll over" a lesson. 24 hours notice to reschedule (based on availability).

Good Luck!

Jordan was born and raised in the El Centro, California where he began playing the alto sax in the elementary band program. At the age of 12, he began his study of guitar and drums, performing in several rock and ska bands around his home town and San Diego. At age 14, is where he found his love for brass instruments when he took up the trombone. While in high school he became a featured soloist with the Imperial Valley College Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of the legendary trumpeter Jimmy Cannon. It was this that lead Jordan to accept the Constance Weldon Music Scholarship to attend the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL.

While performing in South Florida Jordan appeared with major acts including 10,000 Maniacs, and appeared on the Spanish television show "Calle Ocho." He also gained invaluable experience teaching in Miami public schools. His first teaching assignment was at Hialeah-Miami Lakes Senior High School where he directed 3 beginning bands, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and their highly decorated Jazz Band. Later Jordan moved into the elementary setting, teaching vocal and instrumental music for grades K-5 at Cypress Elementary.

In 2007, Jordan returned to California to pursue a music career in San Diego. He can be seen performing all over San Diego, Orange, and LA Counties in styles ranging from rock, jazz, funk, blues, hip-hop, Latin, and more. He performs primarily on trombone, piano, and guitar, but is known to pick up percussion, harmonica, and other wind instruments as well. Jordan, along with the rest of the aggressively funky cover band SuperMagnetic, were the grand prize winner of the 2010 Viejas Ultimate Music Challenge 4. In 2011, Tori Roze & The Hot Mess were nominated for a San Diego Music Award in the category of "Best Blues Artist" after the release of their first album "From The Hip." They released their second album "Turbulence" last December, and are heard regularly on local San Diego radio. This album has also been nominated for Best Pop album for the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. In 2013, Jordan completed his Master of Music degree in Jazz Studies from San Diego State University.

On stage, Jordan is a talented and versatile performer. He is known for his trombone sound and improvisational ability, as well as his positive relationship with his fellow musicians. In lessons, Jordan is energetic and creative.

I enjoy teaching kids and adults of all ages. When you arrive for our first lesson, we'll start by getting to know your musical tastes and aspirations. Then we make a plan. Then we play!

Everybody's path is different, but we must start with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. After we start to establish some technique on your instrument we will explore music that suits you from a practical stand point in your development, and very importantly, stylistically. Together we will plan a curriculum that keeps you motivated toward your goals and that fits your life style.

You can expect a laid back, yet focused environment. Most of all, you can look forward to progress! Hope to see you soon.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with large wall mirror, good lighting, with full size keyboard, weighted

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide an instrument for themselves. I also require a student to come prepared with sheet music, pencils, a binder with sheet protectors, and any books they are interested in.

*** Specialties ***
I have an extensive background in jazz bands, salsa bands, classical wind ensembles, and improvisation. I also currently perform in both original and cover bands on trombone, keyboard and guitar, in a range of styles including rock, reggae, Latin, and funk. I teach beginning and intermediate piano, guitar, and woodwind instruments, as well as advanced brass.

Seth is a good dude. I came across his profile with Take Lessons a month ago, after browsing through other instructors in my area and other schools in my area. He's got the experience and knowledge, so I connected with him for an initial lesson. It was a quick one to get introductions out of the way and a good idea of goals/direction. From there we further honed our plans for my instruction in an hour lesson and are directing our sights on my upcoming auditions. Seth has shown me through simple explanations of theory that his teaching style is very approachable, and additionally, was able to show me good technical skills on working my way around the horn, which is especially useful for someone like me in my twenties who already has a few bad habits (haha). Like I said, he's a good dude, good sense of humor so I feel at ease practicing with him and his knowledge is insane! Not only for saxophone but in so many other areas of music! You'd be doing yourself a favor to take at least an hour lesson from him and see how you go.

Seth and I had a great first lesson. I haven't played in a long time and he gave me helpful pointers on how to improve my embouchure. He gave me positive feedback on my rhythm and constructive feedback on my tone. We worked through some songs together. Next time I will probably ask him to play some more for me so I can hear what I need to improve for a particular song. I highly recommend him.

I have played professionally all over the USA as well as international travel and solo recordings. I have played for broadway musicals as well as movie soundtracks. From solo street performing to big band and orchestra from Bach to Rock and everything in between, reading is essential as well as improvisation in all these styles to be a truly successful musician. I can teach you the skills necessary to go as far as you want.

About Dave
I have been teaching privately since 1987 and am available to teach at my home studio or your home. I have helped students achieve first chair positions in school band, pass college entrance auditions, become professional musicians, and become successful private instructors.

I received my training at Oral Roberts University from 1980-1985 where I received a degree in Music Composition and worked on my Master's degree in Woodwind Doubling at Azusa Pacific University from 2008-2011.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Della Reese, Johnny Mathis, Vicki Carr, Andre Crouch, as well as played and written for cartoons such as "Ren and Stimpy", "Angry Beavers", "Jimmy Neutron", and various children's projects for Disney and Sesame Street.

As an expert in my field, I look forward to h

I started playing clarinet in 1998 and continued through college. I took private lessons under Dr. Christopher Gibson at Northwest Missouri State University. I have a Bachelor of Education in Instrumental Music from that university as well.

About Dana
It has been a dream of mine for a long time to be a full-time piano teacher. I have been playing piano since the age of five. Teaching is in my genes, both of my parents teach special education. My father is a music nerd as well! He shared his joy of music with me and I want to pay it forward.

Some of my strengths include patience, humor and compassion for others. I want to figure out what makes you tick. What do you want to learn about piano? I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach piano. Did you know they make color by note coloring books? At the end of the day if I can share even a fraction of my love for music with you and you are able to learn something, that is what gives me true joy.

I have been a saxophonist for 11 years, currently studying as a saxophone student majoring in Music Education & Composition at Kansas State University. I also have been playing the clarinet for one year now. As a saxophonist and as a Music Education student, I have had the opportunities to study the clarinet as well as play in multiple ensembles.

Lessons for clarinet will consist of three main areas:

Technical Work:

No one wants to hear it, but this means scales and patterns! Learning all of the major and minor scales is a great start to learning new music, and will be the first goal for my students. Included in technical work is proper cleaning and care for the instrument, proper breathing, and physical habits such as posture.

Repertoire:

I want you to experience music that is capable of your skill level, exciting, and will help you learn about different styles and history. I want you to find music that you love to play! Along with learning to play new music, you ...

About Joshua
My name is Joshua Arnoldy, a teacher, composer, and performer. I am proficient in saxophone, and competent in flute, clarinet, composition, and piano. I will be entering my third year at Kansas State University as a Music Education & Composition student. I come from a small town where I have had extensive amounts of experience working with children as a lifeguard, saxophone teacher, and teacher's assistant.

I run my lessons based on what YOU want to learn while building the basic skills required of your instrument of study. I have played classical, jazz, pep, and modern saxophone, and as a composer I am exposed to many different styles of music.

I think one of my biggest advantages is that I am also still a student. I am confident in my abilities to assist students of any level while still being exposed to new music, a variety of p
rofessional musicians, and musical connections myself. Because of this I can offer my knowledge of music, as it is ever growing throughout my own education.

Music is so much more than notes on a page. It is expression, emotion, feeling...
And I understand that as your teacher, it is my job to equip you with the skills needed to fulfill the true music you want to create.

Aurora, CO

View Full Profile

I’m a professional clarinetist and woodwind instructor with 8 years of teaching experience, four of which include instruction at institutions of higher learning. I have a passion for developing smaller studios into well-established programs and helping students define and accomplish their musical goals.

About Leslie
I am a professional clarinetist who occasionally dabbles with the other woodwinds. I graduated with honors from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with my masters in clarinet performance, and with honors from Adams State University with my bachelors in clarinet performance and secondary English education.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their technique, sound production, and basic music theory skills. Every student begins their musical journey in a different place - I personally started playing clarinet with my hands reversed.... after about 6 months of struggling to make any sound that wasn't a squeek, I found a private teacher who changed everything for me. My goal is to help all of my students excel the way my teachers did for me.

I have experience teaching students from beginner through college level, includi
ng time spent on faculty at Mount Holyoke College and the Eaglebrook School. I also have experience working as a guest clinician at schools and festivals around Colorado including the Top of the Nation Honor Band, hosted at Adams State University.

As a performer, I am active around Colorado. I am currently a member of the Lone Tree Symphony, but have also performed with the Colorado Wind Ensemble, Denver Pops Orchestra, Lakewood Symphony Orchestra, San Juan Symphony, Steamboat Springs Symphony. Additionally, I occasionally flex my doubling skills and have performed in musical theater productions in Evergreen, Colorado as well as Easthampton, Massachusetts.

My personal passion is classical music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style and it can be achieved through many different styles of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
