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.

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!

Heather ..
Kathryn has been teaching my 13 year old both voice and guitar. My daughter is just starting out in both and is learning a lot. Kathryn is friendly and has been so great at working with us when my daughter was sick or when we're needing to reschedule. She's been having lessons for a little over a month and her experience has been great. We're looking forward to continuing lessons.

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!
Thiago
My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

*Utilizing different games and activities to help each student learn Music Theory concepts.
*Explaining and experiencing Music Theory in areas not used in the classroom, based on the students learning styles.

Some of the past events students participated in, included a Football Event during the Super Bowl, a Summer and Winter Olympic Event and few practice challenges, where students had to complete a series of Music Theory Events to advocate for their success. All of the students did very well completing the events needed and learned new techniques in creative ways.

Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

Natasha is kind, patient, supportive, and knowledgable. She is an expert in her field and a master teacher. I was unsure how committed I would be to learn piano before I signed up for lessons with her and now cannot imagine ever stopping.

Had Natasha as a singing+piano teacher.
She is an excellent instructor! Her teaching style is very positive with constant constructive feedback and tips & tricks given throughout the lesson.
I drove an hour there and back each week for lessons. The drive was worth the quality of the lessons!
