Hello! My name is Arryn. I am a recent University of Oregon graduate who graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education. I am primarily a french hornist with a background in classical/symphonic music, but I also have a modest background in popular, funk, big band, and brass band music.

Because of my university education I have experience with teaching band instruments including: flute, clarinet, saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and tuba. Because I am a brass player, brass is my primary area of expertise.

I supplemented my university education with several teaching positions. I have taught at two high schools-- Southridge High School (1 year) and West Salem High School (5 years) in Oregon-- as a marching and music instructor for both, and a sectional coach for the Southridge HS wind ensemble. I have also taught as a camp counselor at two separate music camps.

My hobbies include:drawing, calligraphy, weightlifting, and hiking. I also love dogs!

Trumpet · In studio

Arryn made great strides with Greta on her first lesson. She left knowing how to make music, a notebook and reminders reviewing their lesson plan and practice homework for their next session. Greta said "she's awesome" when she commented on their time together. We've made plans to have Greta continue weekly lessons with Arryn, she's a great fit for our daughter!
