If you are a beginner, you can expect to first master technique of the instrument. Afterwards, you will learn how to master a beautiful tone and sound.

As an intermediate, you will learn how to approach things in a different way than normal. You will learn not only how to play something "correctly" but how to play musically, artistically and beautifully.

As an advanced student, you can expect to be challenged to think critically about technique, sound, phrasing, etc.

Virginia’s so patient, understanding and energetic! I never was embarrassed when I would make mistakes and our lessons were never stressful. Virginia has taught me so many techniques, strategies, and practicing methods that improved me as a musician and will continue to. Not only was she an amazing instructor but she was also a shoulder for when I was in distress. Thank you Virginia!❤️

There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Abi is an incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and helpful teacher. She makes learning fun and easy. I always had questions about practicing efficiently, and Abi was able to give me helpful advice that I still use today. Her technique and musicality are superb.

Great teacher
Noah H.
I've found Keith to be professional, good communicator and a great teacher for our 8 year old. He has patience and a real love for music and it shows. He is our first instructor so I don't have anything to compare him with but I do know people and feel great working with him. I forgot to mention, he has a little studio in his basement perfect for lessons.
I hope this helps anyone . Thx.

The goal of my music theory lessons is to help students understand the mechanics of music. From the basics of reading music, to analyzing Bach chorales, and the Lydian Chromatic Concept, I can take students through a range of topics. Lessons will be tailored to each student's interests and needs.

Hayden is a great instructor very professional, dedicated, a truly pro in his craft. He is a versatile musician with an extensive, proven background in all sort of styles that definitely will help anyone interested in learning, advancing, and perfecting the skills required to play the trombone to reach their goals, no matter what level your are at the moment.
Let’s be real, if you really want to master or at least play decently well any instrument (the trombone in this case with all its technical challenges) you need a mentor and here we are lucky to have a young, professional, smart musician, with a strong, solid academic formation and a life dedicated to music, specialized in trombone to our entire disposition.
If you are trying to find an instructor to help you out with your musicianship, stop looking because you have already found him. I am sure that you, as I have, will exponentially progress with his help. Thank you Hayden.
Daniela
Hayden has been teaching private Trombone lessons to my 13th year old son for over a year now. Hayden is organized and reliable; he is always on time, and has helped my son sound great. Hayden is passionate about Jazz, and knowledgeable. My son enjoys having a teacher that is as passionate as he is, and younger that the usual Trombone teachers we have found. :-)
Hayden has prepared my son for All State competitions, and for many concerts with his school and/or the jazz band my son performs outside of school. I recommend Hayden 100%!!!
Tracy
Very friendly and talented! A great teacher with years and years of experience! Learned a ton! Thank you, Hayden!

3 Things to Master Before Learning Jazz Drumming

Imagine you're traveling to a foreign country, and you decide to learn the language.  You would probably start with simple words or phrases - "Hello, my name is..." or "Where is the subway?". With the basics, and maybe a reference guide at your side, you'd probably get along just fine. But for those of you who have mastered a second language, think about how much easier it got once you delved a little deeper: grammar rules, formal vs. informal language, even the evolution of the culture and …
