As a strong believer in the life-changing power of music, my teaching is driven by my purpose to serve and inspire students of all backgrounds to realize their full potential and leave a positive impact on the lives of others. My approach in teaching is firmly grounded in developing a healthy and self-driven practice culture in my students. As a practicing teacher, I strive tirelessly to lead by example. I ensure my students feel empowered after each lesson and hold them accountable to commit to their own daily grind. Especially during times of difficulty, I love to encourage my students to follow their curiosity and guard their motivation as we share the journey of music making together.
I specialize in brass instruments, and have 20 years of experience. I can teach you everything from sound production and control to crossing from mere technique into meaningful music. We can talk about everything from a trumpeter's leadership role in the orchestra to handling the stress of a competitive instrument. There's a certain trumpet "swagger," and I can help you *earn* it.
Whether it is a beginner or a more experienced student, I start everyone with an interview. This is so I can create the perfect lesson style for my students. I specialize in musical theory and composition and have learned many different techniques from the groups that I have played in. I promise that you will improve and you will love the music you play.
I am joyful to be a part of some truly spectacular results from my students! My lesson plans are designed for all ability levels ranging from complete beginner to professional performer. They will help you with tuning, range, endurance, rhythm, but most importantly keep your chops (lips) in healthy condition (no-one wants to hurt after playing music!) I promise results. My Trumpet students learn songs they have always wanted while learning how to sound great. - Proper breathing/compression - Playing resonant without playing louder - Articulation styles - Range development (Low and High notes) - Personal interpretation - Brass maintenance routines - Live performance tips - Lead/Jazz/Big Band music - Classical solo/Concert Band/Wind ensemble repertoire - Simple-to-Complex Rhythms - Soloing over chords/modes - Flexibility All my students learn: - Sight reading - Music Theory - Ear training
I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance. Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes! Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!
Profession evaluation patients and understanding for all students who call me for help. My knowledge and understanding of Brass instruments is second to none and i take pride in teaching students in a competent and complete musical manner. I have been teaching for 32 years and have developed a complete method for progress and confidence from each student regardless of the current level one performs at.
