My 35+ years of musical experience have taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results. My teaching style is dynamic and positive; I want you to look forward to your lessons. And I have both the teaching and performing chops to challenge you and impart some serious skills. I have my Bachelor of Music from the Peabody Conservatory and a Postgraduate Diploma in Trombone Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. I've taught a wide range of students -- from children who've never before picked up an instrument, to accomplished high schoolers, to adults who've always wanted to learn and finally have the freedom to do so. I enjoy helping people as much as I enjoy performing, and I'd love the chance to inspire and encourage you however I can. (My recommendation for young, beginning students is half-hour, weekly lessons. This gives us the opportunity for regular check-ins, without overwhelming them with too much information at once.)

There is not enough room in all the review boxes in the world to write all of the thing we love about Holly as a teacher! She has helped my son to love playing trombone. Holly is warm, wonderful, kind, easy-going, competent, flexible, and truly a joy to work with. We love, love, love her!!!! She always makes Harrison laugh and feel comfortable and he really enjoys his lessons with her. Thank you Holly!!
great communicator, smart ideas, very understanding, excellent listening skills, and advanced skill set with top value for money and time.
Holly is the BEST! Patient, informative, and so encouraging. We can't recommend her enough.
