Majestic, Beautiful, Noble, Heroic. The horn is a unique instrument, and an instrument many people say is very difficult to play. However, even in the early stages of learning the instrument, it is important to think about expressing the wonderful qualities of the horn, while still learning the technical aspects of the instrument. In my experience, playing as the President and Principal Horn of the Houghton Symphony Orchestra amongst other positions, learning to become a good musician is just as important as becoming a good horn player, so in my lessons I aim for my students to become both. Let us go forth and be better musicians.

About Jeffrey Zane

As an ethnomusicologist/world arts researcher and an award-winning composer whose music has been described as "what Renaissance composers would have written if they had heard gospel music," I enjoy being known for music that draws from many sources, is intellectually rigorous, and is pleasant to the

I believe that a beautiful sound is the most important thing. Rather than telling you how to get a great sound, I will demonstrate by playing everything back and forth with you. Learning a musical skill is accomplished through trial and error, thus we need to make mistakes in order to improve. I encourage my students not to be afraid of making mistakes. Perfection is not the target - a beautiful sound is the ultimate goal.

About Larry

Hi! My name is Larry, and I really enjoy playing and teaching trumpet. The trumpet has literally taken me around the world playing for over ten years on various cruise lines, visiting beautiful places in Europe, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, and North/South America. Since leaving the cruise industry,

I have been taking lessons with Larry for about two years and I have improved immensely. Larry is very supportive and gives great feedback, he makes the lessons fun and educational. He will let you figure things out on your own but also give helpful instructions to lead you on your way to success. Larry is the reason I went from not being able to play the trumpet to two years later playing a level 4 trumpet NYSSMA solo and getting a 25 out of 28. Taking lessons from Larry was the best thing I could have done to get better at playing the trumpet.
Ginny
Our daughter loves taking lessons from Larry. He has helped her improve her trumpet skills. She is a beginner, and he is very patient and knowledgeable about what she needs to develop into a great musician. Larry is always available and prompt with his lesson times but is also flexible with his schedule for us when needed.
Sarah
I like lessons with Larry. He is patient, and always finds something positive. Trumpet is easier now, and a lot more fun!

Have you wondered how music is notated and what all those sharps and flats mean? Would you like to be able to look at a piece of music and know how it sounds and whether it would work for your voice? I can help you with that. With step by step workbooks and 15 minutes of practice a day, you can learn to read music within a few months and know the basics before that.
Add 15 - 30 minute theory lessons to your regular time. I recommend adults take from 45 minutes to 1 hour lessons weekly for skill building.

Julia had wonderful ideas to further my 4-yr-old’s love of singing. She is wonderful with young children, and fun to learn from. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon, and a beautiful voice.

My daughter has learned so much with Julia in the past few weeks. It's been a true pleasure to witness the progress. They have worked on sight reading, tone, physical posture, and many other aspects of singing and sound production. Julia is a very caring and supportive instructor. She is full of enthusiasm and humor, and this shows in her choice of singing materials. We look forward to having more lessons with her!

I am not a one-size-fits-all type of teacher. I tailor lessons to individuals and factor in how they learn, and what their specific goals are. I have taught saxophone and clarinet lessons since I was in high school, which was a few decades ago by now. I have saxophone performance and pedagogy degrees from Indiana University, and Arizona State. I have also played professionally since high school - both jazz and classical. I maintain a large studio, but can fit a few more students into my schedule.

About Beth

I tailor lessons to the individual, taking their goals into account. I can get you as far as you want to go.

"Gina is amazingly dedicated, both to the material she teaches and to her students. She's knowledgeable and encouraging. I engaged her to teach ballet to me and a friend who was trying to use dance to work through some body issues. Gina navigated a tricky situation - two students at different levels, one with psychological barriers - beautifully, and we both learned loads. Definitely get her to teach you things!"
