James N.

Beaverton, OR

This is my primary instrument, on which I have over 16 years of playing experience. I am ready to help you get better whether you just bought a trumpet or are studying music in college.

About James

Hello everyone! Please have a look around my profile and feel free to contact me. I have taught privately since 2009 and just joined takelessons.com in 2014.

I strongly feel each student needs lesson goals tailored to what he or she wants to take away from music. Getting ready for a college performance degree, making it to state solo contest, surviving band music, or simply discovering the huge scope of music available to us these days are each worthy goals, but require different preparation. I will work with you to figure out where your interests lie and focus on those, first and foremost!


After completing my bachelor's and master's degrees in trumpet performance out in the Midwest, I spent two years living and working in Chicago, IL before returning home to the Portland area in 2013. I have since started a new studio in Beaverton, OR and am taking on new students at this time while maintaining an active teaching schedule with the Southridge High School marching band and Oregon Crusaders drum and bugle corps, as well as performing in the Portland metro area.

Thanks for your time, and happy practicing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I can provide: music stand, method books during lessons, recording equipment for lessons, tuner, metronome

Students should provide: instrument/mouthpiece

*** Specialties ***
I have spent most of my playing time on classical (orchestral, chamber, and solo music), but would also welcome students interested in jazz up to an intermediate level, especially if they have an interest in playing lead trumpet.

French Horn · In studio
Verified Student
James teaches our son (13) the horn. He is a true professional in his art and does a fantastic job in teaching it to others. He is knowledgeable in his craft and very patient in laying a solid foundation from which to build on. Our son learned more in his first 30 minute class about how to work on areas that were frustrating him, than the 1.5 years lost in band class. Thank you James for getting our son to start playing with confidence, and best yet enjoying his horn again!

About Kelly

After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in music, I moved to New York where I lived for 11 years. I have been a professional multi-instrumentalist since then and a member of many bands including Beirut and Arcade Fire.

I have performed in dozens of countries, at some of the world's biggest festivals (Bonnaroo, Coachella, Glastonbury), and on many television shows (Colbert, Letterman, Fallon).

I have experience in playing and teaching many differen
t styles and can teach you what YOU want to learn. Playing music can be a very rewarding experience, but should also be fun. I can promise you will have fun in our lessons and have fun with music in general.

I can bring any portable instrument, and any sheet music required for our lesson.

For brass I am a strong proponent of the Carmine Caruso method. As for genres I am most well versed in jazz, rock, and classical.

Trombone

GREAT Teacher!

I hadn't picked up a trombone in over 30 years. I was interested in joining a community band in my retirement, but knew I needed a lot of "brush-up"
I'm glad I found Kelly! He was able to determine where I needed the most work, and has tailored my lessons to meet my skill level. He's given me a good basic review of the trombone, and is also very capable on many other instruments. He's made sure I have plenty of appropriate level music to practice besides scales - so it doesn't get boring!
I would highly recommend Kelly for anyone like myself who would like to get back to playing for fun. I will continue taking more lessons from him. I'm also sure he would be of great help for more serious students of any brass instrument.
THANKS, Kelly!

Collin S.

Portland, OR

The first couple lessons I will be focusing on evaluating each student on an individual basis to see where they are at in skill level and musicality. Then I would begin teaching the students different techniques with their instruments that will help them in the next phase of teaching such as music theory, control, and musical etudes and practice songs. In the last phase I will be giving them different solo pieces depending on their skill levels that they will be able to play competitively.

About Collin

Hello! My name is Collin, I am 20 years old and currently a music education student at Portland State University in downtown Portland. I have been playing the trumpet and other brass instruments for 10 years now and for 5 years competitively. I also have volunteered at my junior teachers school at Spanaway Junior high in Spanaway Washington, assisting in all of the fundamentals of music development and performance to give back to the community. Music education is my passion, and the feeling of expanding a students mind through the discipline of music is what I live for.
