I am all about teaching the whole musician, meaning that you will not be learning just trombone but all the skills necessary to be the best musician you can be! This includes ear training, music theory, sight-singing and more.

About Alexis
I believe in teaching all aspects of musicianship when learning an instrument such as music theory, ear training, and singing, just to name a few. I have been private teaching for more than 6 years and I specialize in trombone, music theory/ear training, and piano lessons and have taught a variety of levels. I provide a very inviting environment for students to learn and grow.

* In case of allergies, I will mention that I have 2 cats in my home. Let me know if this is a problem so we can work out a different location.

Where should I start?

I tried out a few teachers that I found throughout the Tulsa area. Saied's, Tulsa Guitar Shop, even all the way down in Bixby. But from the VERY FIRST lesson, I immediately knew it was a good fit with Ron. I only knew a few chords and felt embarrassed to show the "lack" of what I knew about guitar, but he was able to meet me right where I was at and help me to progress immediately.

After a year of lessons, I can play many different songs and I am still learning new things.

Ron is great. He gives my son input and definitely knows a lot about the Trombone. My son was having trouble learning one of the songs in band class, so Ron recorded a video of himself playing the song and sent it to me!! I couldn't believe how willing he is to go above and beyond to help my son succeed.

First off - Ron is incredibly patient. I think that's kind of essential to be a good teacher, but it definitely doesn't go unnoticed.

Presentable and Professional
As small as it is, I actually really appreciate the little details that he puts into making the experience great. Not only does he do a phenomenal job teaching, I immediately noticed the beautiful flowers and investments he puts into keeping his yard presentable. Again, I know it's small and kind of irrelevant to teaching.. but in my opinion, it's important.

Lastly, his home studio is so cute. He always has snacks and gum for me or my daughter. He even has a water dispenser for cold water. I really appreciate the thought he puts into making me and my daughter feel right at home.

I started playing the trombone in the 4th grade and have been playing ever since. I attended St. Augustine High School where I participated in the world renowned "Marching 100" band. As a leader and Drum Major I gained experience very early on working with beginners and honing their skills. I want to make sure students get a solid foundation and master all of the basics in order to excel in their music play.

About Talton
I'm currently a District Manager for the largest financial services company in North America. I'm excited to have the opportunity to share basic financial concepts that many people simply do not know. I'm also skilled on the trombone and have been playing for over 15 years.
I like to focus on the basics because it sets the tone and builds a strong foundation for the future. Many people fail due to simply overlooking the basics.
