After playing French horn for 3 years, I decided to try to play Trumpet. It ended up being very natural to me and so I performed on both Trumpet and French horn in High school. I played the French horn for our Orchestra and Wind ensemble and Trumpet for our Jazz ensemble. I fell into a position when I was 15 to be a brass coach of a Montessori school and taught mostly Trumpet for the 3 years that I was there.
Today, I play the Trumpet for fun!

About Beckie
Hi!
My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play and teach many different instruments such as the Trumpet, French horn, Saxophone, Mandolin, Guitar, Clarinet, Voice, and Piano.

I graduated from Chapman University in 2010 with 2 degrees in music, Music Education and Music Performance on French horn. I am currently in my second year at UCLA for my masters in Music Performance on French horn.

When I first began teaching, I taught at an elementary school for 3 years as a brass coach for a Montessori Academy. This is where I fell in love with teaching. I have been teaching privately for 13 years now and love the one-on-one attention that I can give the students.

I have worked for many great organizations like the Los Angeles Philharmonic and California Philharmonic.

I currently am a freelance musician.
I perform regularly with the UCLA Philharmonia and UCLA Wind Ensemble-the top two performing groups at the music school. I also am in horn ensemble called the Thursday Horn Club. I have performed in such wonderful venues as the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Sydney Opera house, in which I was able to premier a piece!

I look forward to working with you or your child in helping to start or continue a musical instrument!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I teach lessons, I like to go at the pace of the student. I am very patient but I expect the student to practice during the week. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically.

For music, I try to find free options but books may be a better option. When we choose a book to play out of, I like to choose a book together so that the parent and the child are happy about the selection. Books vary based on what the needs are for each student. Books are to be purchased by the parent.

I usually play my instruments with the students, but being a freelance musician, I may need to save my chops for an upcoming gig. Not always, but happens from time to time :)

I also have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you are late for your lesson, I will try to accommodate the time but may have students or rehearsals afterwards so it will not always be a guarantee. If you are going to be late, please text me BEFORE the scheduled lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson space is in my home w/ seating for parents and music stand for students. I also have a cat and a dog, so if you are allergic, please let me know!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the music books and their own instruments and music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical genres of playing but I am able to teach all different styles of music.

I had next to no experience on the horn, and I had learned and improved greatly from the first lesson. From my experience, should you need to jump into horn from the bottom, Beckie is the ideal teacher because of her attention to detail and positive attitude that makes progress exponential.

She canceled and rescheduled so many lessons due to personal reasons, such as playing somewhere, house construction, etc. When my wife sent her text because my son couldn't make a lesson, she didn't check and charged anyway for no-show. The she cancelled all the remaining lessons. I don't think she is very professional.

Sorry Beckie, but you need to set your priority before taking students. My son is not something you can give lesson whenever you feels like.

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

Miles has trumpet to taught all ages, ranging from fourth graders to retirees, and all skill levels from beginners to those preparing for college auditions. Schools he has instructed students at include Vista Murrieta High School, Fallbrook High School, Martin Luther King Jr. High School, William Workman High School, Rubidium High School, Raymond Cree Middle School, and Warm Springs Middle School.

Skills covered include everything needed to play the trumpet successfully. Sound, projection, reading, technique, flexibility, repertoire, and range can all be developed if the student earnestly wants to take the time to develop them. A practice regimen is designed for each individual student depending on their strengths, weaknesses, and goals.

About Miles
Miles is a Southern California-based performer and educator. He was recently appointed to the nationally and internationally touring brass quintet, Presidio Brass. He is also 3rd trumpet of the Santa Barbara Symphony, and a frequent performer at the Disneyland Resort including the new Disneyland Band. Miles is also former Principal trumpet of the American Youth Symphony, a premier training ensemble based in Los Angeles. He earned his Master of Music in Trumpet Performance at California State University Fullerton in 2015, studying under Barry Perkins, Principal Trumpet of the Pacific Symphony. He graduated from the University of Redlands in 2011 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Trumpet Performance where he studied with Dr. David Scott.

As an educator, Miles is energetic and keeps lessons positive, varied, and always with a goal i
n mind. There is a constant emphasis on building fundamentals and using those as a foundation for making great music. Not everyone learns the same way so it is his aim to be adaptable to the student's needs to help them understand and process the concepts behind good trumpet playing. He has taught all ages and skill levels, privately and in group settings, and can be a valuable asset in helping you achieve your musical pursuits. Two of his students have been placed as the principal trumpet in the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra and received generous music scholarships for college.

Miles is an active freelance performer and is comfortable playing in all genres and ensembles, from the back of an orchestra, in a chamber ensemble or solo performance, to commercial and lead work. He has performed with the New West Symphony, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Pops, California Philharmonic, Redlands Symphony Orchestra, Riverside Philharmonic, Golden State Pops Orchestra, San Bernardino Symphony, Dream Orchestra, Pacific Brass Ensemble, the Disneyland Band, and many other groups throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire. From 2011-2013, he played lead trumpet for Carnival Cruise Lines in numerous showbands performing for their full-scale production shows and live sets. He has performed with Persian pop singer, Shahkar, Chris Botti, and Mannheim Steamroller among others.

Miles received numerous musical and academic awards and had many opportunities while at the University of Redlands. He was a member of the University of Redlands Faculty Brass Quintet from 2008 – 2011. He was awarded the School of Music Director’s Award, Performer’s Award, Theodore Presser Scholarship, Freshman and Sophomore Honor Awards, and was inducted into the Pi Kappa Lambda music honor society among many others. In 2011, Miles performed the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto with the Redlands Symphony Orchestra as a result of winning the school's concerto competition. Miles also performed in the school's President's Honor Recital the previous two years. Also in 2011, he was one of the grand prize winners of the Redlands Bowl Young Artists Competition and a featured soloist at the Redlands Bowl, having been a finalist the previous year. He was a winner of the Antelope Valley Symphony Concerto Competition and co-principal of the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra during its 2006 – 2007 season.

Gary had his first lesson and got over the jitters of being "the first time" as well as the app which made us nervous "Yes dad especially!" being I was used to old fashion face to face lessons back in the dinasour era.

Thanks Jonathan for the great lesson and introduction to this program.

I look forward to more future lessons.

Jonathan is an excellent instructor. My lessons were scheduled in the evenings and he accommodated my busy work schedule. He presented the lessons clearly; he adapted my lesson to my learning style and never forced me into just 1 style of learning. He also gave me a lesson manual and discussed alternative ways of practicing at home. Joanathan is extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn violin.

I like to give students a good solid theoretical foundation first, then build to confirm with the students specific goals. For example, if the student is into a particular type of music (jazz, soul, classical...) I tailor the lessons to meet those goals.

About Jeff
Starting with my first music lessons at age 7, I've spent the last 40 plus years studying and performing music. I studied classical guitar with well-known Cuban virtuoso, Carlos Molina & Adam Holtzman. I've performed with some of the music world’s greats such as blues legend Bo Diddley, The Platters, The Coasters, Stephen Stills (Crosby, Stills & Nash), Bonnie Raitt as well as jazz greats Randy Brecker, Red Rodney, Ira Sullivan, Pam Laws & Marcus Roberts. Since moving to the Portland area in April 2015 I've performed with the Portland Wind Symphony, The Hillsboro Symphony, The Minidoka Swing Band, for Nike at the Olympic trials, on jazz night at WineUp on Williams downtown. & innumerable private performances. As a teacher, I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Florida State University and after teaching middle school in F
lorida, spent 18 years as a teacher trainer in Japan for a major English school chain specializing in children ages 1 ½ on up.

The Doctor is in! I am the founder and owner of NOVA Music Academy in Winchester with a professional teaching studio and staff to teach every wind and string instrument. I hold a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Flute Performance from Shenandoah University and I have taught children and university students for more than 10 years. Your child deserves the BEST music teacher. From experience I know teachers vary wildly in quality; with me, you are assured expert quality and professionalism that your child deserves.

Whether your child loves Mozart or Moana, is putting their instrument together for the first time, or getting ready for a big audition, I meet your child at their level and I take them to the stars!

About Julianna
Dear Student,

I am so excited you want to take music lessons! If you love music, we'll have a lot of fun learning together. My best memories are from playing with friends in band and orchestra. Playing the flute took me to college and to visit Europe, even to meet my best friend and my husband! I love to listen to and teach all kinds of music and can't wait to hear what your favorites are. I studied to be a classical flutist so I play a beautiful silver flute in the orchestra but my husband and I also love popular music. In our group, "Mr & Mrs Music" I play a hot pink flute and he plays an electric cello! We mix classical music, pop, and movie hits and have so much fun performing in our community. I can't wait to meet you and make music together!

Dear Parents,

Thank you for giving your child the gift of music! Even if th
ey don’t recognize it right away, they are so fortunate to have your support. As the founder and owner of NOVA Music Academy, I believe that children always win when parents and teachers unite to provide support. We hope that by inviting you into the NOVA Music Academy family, your unique child will find joy in learning music and grow to appreciate the deeply expressive power of art for a lifetime.

I can personally attest to the joy that music has brought my life, including full scholarships for a bachelors, master's and doctoral degree and I could never have done it without my amazing flute teachers. I'm looking forward to repaying their investment into the next generation of musicians, I sincerely hope your child is one of them! My website contains a full bio, resume, and recordings of my playing and testimonials from parents and students.
