Hi. I'm a classical and jazz tuba player in the Altanta metropolitan area. I studied music at Ithaca College and Southern Methodist University with Dave Unland and Everett Gilmore. I currently play all genres of music and have been involved with street bands. I think of the tuba as a flexible voice in ensembles. It can be the lead melody, it can provide the bass line and chordal structure, and it can hang in a horn section. My lessons are focused on teaching students the music THEY want to learn. Studying music that is relevant to what you feel and love is the most important part of progress (along with practicing!). I have taught cooking in addition to music over the years and enjoy working with students to help them gain the skills they need to enjoy their music. Cheers!
About John F.

I'm a trained musician who focuses on tuba and trombone in my professional life. I've played professionally at theme parks and continue to play as much as possible in my new home, Atlanta. My inspirations include Bob Stewart, Roger Bobo, Rebirth Brass Band, Roy Hargrove, Ray Brown, and on and on... What do you like to play? Want to learn heavy metal bass lines on tuba? Let's go! Want to make it sing while playing Somewhere Over The Rainbow? Need to get ready for college auditions? I've been there. Let's make some music!
