This was our introduction. Maureen took the time to understand what I am interested in. She laid out a vision for how we would proceed with my training and provided. Me with materials to get up and running quickly. As a beginning player and an adult learner, I couldn’t be happier with her.

Hello and welcome to my studio!

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need air to play trumpet. Proper posture, embouchure, and making a nice sound will come next. And later we will work on the more intricate aspects of trumpet playing such as articulations and range, while learning new songs!

If you are already familiar with the basics of playing trumpet, we will work on the specific areas you want to work on.

I'm glad you have decided to take trumpet lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

I just want to start out by saying Andrew is flexible with scheduling. It’s very helpful. But my son enjoys the lessons with Andrew. He said Andrew taught how to breathe better and can’t wait until the next lesson.

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

I tailor the lessons to constantly build up the student. When an aspect is accomplished well, it does not go unnoticed and when there is an element to work on, it is a patient collaboration to help build the students ability and confidence in their skill.

I have BM in Music Composition, have played piano for 14 years, and tuba for 8 years, studying both in my degree. I have played both piano and tuba in solo, accompaniment, small ensemble, and large ensemble settings, providing me with a broad range of experience in music. Although I have specific expertise that applies directly in teaching theory and music composition, it also aids in my passion of helping students truly understand what is happening as they learn to play their instrument well. From my experience, a strong emphasis in theory alongside technic and repertoire aids students in more quickly and fully absorbing the ability to play their instrument. With the combination of tailoring lessons to the student and ...

"Randy is an amazing piano teacher. He understands how to keep an energy filled 9 year old boy interested and excited to learn! Randy is on top of all the technology trends and helps incorporate them into his students lessons. I am impressed with how quickly my son picks up on playing by ear with the methods that Randy has taught. My son's love for music has come from Randy. Randy's passion for music shines every time we see him. Randy has helped my son to be more confident not only playing piano but also in life. Randy's positive attitude and friendly personality makes him not only a wonderful piano teacher, but also a great mentor. I am happy that my son is being influenced by such a talented, sincere, and genuine person. We look forward to our lesson every week!
Thank you Randy for being the best teacher !"

"I found Michelle and Robert on the internet, looking for a local voice instructor for my kids (ages 15 and 10). My kids were willing to give them a try and started in May 2019. Per the kids: Michelle and Robert are so kind, supportive, and have high energy; they are never bored. Mind you, going in, these kids were scared of voice lessons - they were very concerned about "opera" (or what they thought opera was). Both kids now look forward to lessons: it's fun, they get to express themselves, and they really appreciate the learning environment created by Michelle and Robert. They even learned a couple of Italian art songs. I can see their CONFIDENCE in performing/singing get stronger and more secure. I think the key is the great rapport they have with Michelle and Robert. I am delighted with the children's progress and am grateful for these great teachers."

Playing guitar isn’t for the faint of heart. Its six strings require finger strength, and if you don’t practice, you simply won’t get better.
