About Tom
My goal is to provide insight along your musical path. Brass instruments are challenging, so I help build a structured daily trumpet routine, one that grows as you develop.
In addition to preparing for performances and auditions, I encourage spending time on your favorite songs, and enjoy learning with them with you (often by transcribing the material).

Music room w/piano, trumpet, and optional seating for parents (see photos below)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide music, accessories (tuner, metronome, portable speakers), and books. I can bring an extra trumpet for beginners.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet- Caruso Method, breathing exercises, and other mechanics depending on student level.
Improvisation- Theory, ear training, free play, jazz standards.

As an adult learner who plays multiple instruments, I’ve had every type of teacher you can imagine. It’s always a struggle to find a teacher able to work with the unique requirements of being an adult with adult obligations and time constraints.

Tom, as it turns out, is that rare teacher able to not just handle these unique requirements, but is also fantastic at finding and focusing on knowledge gaps, whether it be playing, theory, tone, or anything else I throw at him.

Prior to taking lessons with Tom, I had barely held a trumpet, and I’m progressing at a rate far faster than I had imagined I would.

So don’t bother looking elsewhere, Tom is who you need!

About Brianna
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!

History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

About Xavier
I am a professional pianist, piano teacher, vocal coach and organist. I am originally from Puerto Rico, were I got my Bachelors in Music Performance with a specialization in piano from the Conservatory of Music in P.R. and have two Masters of Music from Eastern Michigan University, in Piano Perfomance, and The University of Michigan, in Collaborative Piano.

My philosophy has always been to ask the student what he/she wants to accomplish with their piano studies and then come up with a plan to accomplish this. Pair that with my teachings of proper technique and becoming a well rounded musician which includes: sheet music reading, music theory, sight reading, ear training and playing from the heart and you have the perfect formula for success. But the secret ingredient is always the effort that you put in to get better, without that yo
u will not get better.

As a pianist I do a lot of freelance work with singers and instrumentalists. Working with them for their concerts/recitals, competitions and recordings. I work also with middle/high school students as the choir accompanist for the Bowling Green City Schools in Ohio. I perform my organist duties at Olivet Lutheran Church in Sylvania, OH.

I have a small private studio that I teach from home and looking to expand it with online lessons and with you. I look forward to working with you and helping you accomplish your musical goals whether that is in classical or any other genre, I am here for you.

Mr Suarez has been teaching my 9 year old for just over 2 months. My son was excited about piano before we started, but now he loves it even more. He practices every single day without being told. Mr Suarez is patient, kind and teaches supportively with humor. He pushes just enough to make my son want to be better, without making him feel bad about his performance, should he be struggling. I highly recommend Mr. Suarez.

I am a professional musician with a bachelor's degree in music from the Sacramento State School of Music. I have played saxophone throughout the region in many different groups, such as the award winning Sacramento State Jazz Ensemble. I have training in both classical and jazz styles. As a former "band kid," I am familiar with the ins and outs of playing in all kinds of school bands such as marching band, concert band, and jazz band.
As a teacher, I like to teach good habits as well as musicianship. My goal is to help students become better players and musicians, so that they have the skills necessary to take on new musical endeavors. I also have experience in bilingual education for K-12 students. This also means I have passed background checks for the state and school districts.

If you are interested in learning the clarinet, you've come to the right place! I've loved the clarinet since I first laid eyes on it and love teaching and performing. Whether you're just learning your first notes or getting ready for a solo performance, we can work together to make practicing fun and efficient.

I started playing clarinet when I was in 6th grad and went on to receive my B.A. from Adrian College and 2017. I have been teaching and performing through school and after, including a tour through Adrian College to Rome.

About James
Hi, my name is James! I'm a guitar teacher. Learning and playing a musical instrument can be such a positive and rewarding benefit to have in your life. Work with an instructor with a proven track record, Someone who knows how to communicate properly for you to achieve maximum results in the shortest amount of time.

Think about the feeling of accomplishment when you learn a new song, or realize you're improving, learning, getting better Think of the first time you say to yourself "Wow, that sounds pretty Good"!

These lessons are about you! Everyone's journey on the instrument is different. Everyone has different musical tastes, with different situations, wants and needs. I want you to be the best you can. Playing the music you want to play. Think of me not only as an instructor, but as a friend, coach, mentor cheering you
on, because I know you can.

Whether you just want to learn a couple of chords and play some songs. or dive deep into advanced concepts and techniques. like soloing, Songwriting, Alternate tunings, creativity, playing with a slide, tapping, sweep picking, building chords and melodies, composition, modes. Improvisation, Fretboard Mastery, Harmony and Theory, Reading, working with effects

With over 10 years of teaching experience. I want you to have an advantage musically, I have studied with some of the greatest musicians, authors and educators. I attended Musicians Institute (Hollywood, Ca.) where I maintained a 96 average in Harmony and Theory (The science of music). As a professional musician, my album of original acoustic finger-style music has been featured and played throughout the world. I have also performed live on various radio stations throughout the country. Recently I was involved in a Experimental Post-Rock instrumental project.

I have helped and worked with many students accomplish their own individual goals on the guitar. For instance, I worked with a student who was primarily a rock guitarist, earn first seat in a very prestigious High School Jazz band. I've also helped students pass their NYSSMA (New York State School Association) certifications in both the Classical guitar and Jazz guitar program. I've assisted and prepared students for Talent Shows, band auditions, open mics. music camp and college. I have worked with retirees who always wanted to learn how to play, but never had the time.

Finding the right instructor is a very important decision, it can have an impact on whether you still pursue playing, Please feel free to contact me with any questions, wants, needs or concerns. Please do not be shy.
