Improve your technique, musicality, or prepare for an audition. Whatever you need!

About Troy
Music began for me extremely young ( age 4 ) first with piano, then with trumpet and saxophone. During High School my specialty changed to Trumpet and focused on that instrument.

During my time playing I have enjoyed being a section leader and playing for many great ensembles that bridged many genres including Classical, Jazz, Rock, Funk, Blues, Pop, as well as Orchestral.

My teachers have included many trumpet professionals including Malcolm Mcnab, Barry Perkins, Rudy Arevalos and Dave Evans.

I have made the focus of my life music and I love playing and teaching music and I love meet
ing new people.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a current enrolled Trumpet Performance student at CSUF and I perform with some of the top ensembles in the school. I have taught lessons with all ages ranging from age 5 to age 62. My experience with trumpet is extensive and I am ready to help you with any aspect of your playing no matter if it's range, endurance, flexibility, literature, or anything else! I have also taught instruments other than trumpet including French Horn, Baritone, Euphonium, and Tuba.

All of my lessons are individually tailored to fit the student that I work with so it is hard to let you know exactly what to expect. My teaching style also may slightly change depending on my students age, activity, and attention level. Expect to learn the fundamentals first (but in an interesting way like playing duets or tunes instead of just exercises), then moving on to more advanced techniques.

I can help with school based literature and assignments for your music classes to help you be the first chair in your band!

Some methods you may expect to see me use are: Arban, Stamp (done correctly), Schlossberg, Clark, and many etude books just to name a few.

All in all I am a fun teacher who loves working with anyone to help them improve on whatever they need and want to improve on!

*** Specialties ***
I can play any style and teach any including Broadway musical book type performance. I do specialize some in classical performance.

My services provide you with an opportunity to learn from a balance state of thinking to achieve success in your goals for the chosen instrument. Whether its technique, learning how to read both musically and literally, my teaching methods are very self reflective and introspective to provide the understanding you're looking for. All in all my sessions are very people friendly and driven to meet your needs. This helps to learn on a deeper level so that you may appreciate, learn faster and enjoy a greater sense of awareness for the fun of the music making process. I have a very warm and easy going approach with an emphasis on FUN so that we can connect to what we love to do which is make music.

About James
My name is James and I have earned a Master’s degree in Music Performance and graduated from Cal State Fullerton. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education received from the University of Redlands. I have performed with a variety of musical ensembles (college, orchestra, band, chamber groups) and have experience in all musical genres. Currently I am Co-principal of the Corona Symphony Orchestra and play in other groups throughout Southern California as well as the Elementary level band instructor in the Monrovia Unified School district. I have also taught and coached at several middle
and high schools for the past few years, and I teach privately throughout the San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire. My passion is educating the musicians of tomorrow and helping them discover their innate musical abilities and desires.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are very student driven and revolve around developing students innate music abilities to help them connect and experience success as well as enriching their lives with music. In my lessons students will develop music appreciation skills by listening to music, understanding basic music theory concepts, growing a knowledge of historical awareness in music all alongside learning the instrument of their chosen preference. The pace set for the sessions is rather relaxed and is highly dependent on the student but, students are guided throughout the sessions to eventually achieve their goals. My main teaching approach is: Let me use my skills and knowledge to help figure out what works best for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The home studio lessons take place in the living room or a finished garage with tile floor. Seating is available in both areas. Parking is on the street. He has an upright piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music as well as they can provide music as well. I can provide a music stand. They need to provide the necessary equipment that allows their instrument to function

*** Specialties ***
Primarily classical style and some jazz.

James is a very nice teacher. Easy going which is exactly what my son needs. Nothing too intense. My son had an easy time transitioning from clarinet to bassoon with Jame's help and they are doing good so far. I highly recommend him.

Very detail driven lesson to insure growth and success in music. Having fun is always key!

About Garrett
My name is Garrett. I am originally from Southern California where I grew up constantly around music. My mother being a pianist I started at a young age. After a few years and a few different instruments, I fell in love with the Oboe. I was fortunate to have great teachers through middle school and high school and I ended up making my way to college on a Music Scholarship. Studying mainly classical music, I did have my chances to explore various genres and perform all over California as well as various cities in the US. I am very passionate and love to teach. I look forward to the possibility
of teaching/coaching young or old musicians here in California.
