Build Solid Skills in the Trumpet with Easy Lessons from an Expert

I specialize in brass instruments, and have 20 years of experience. I can teach you everything from sound production and control to crossing from mere technique into meaningful music. We can talk about everything from a trumpeter's leadership role in the orchestra to handling the stress of a competitive instrument. There's a certain trumpet "swagger," and I can help you *earn* it.

About Holly S.

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.)
