I have 9 years of experience teaching students of all levels, and I would love to work with you! Every student learns differently, so I draw from all I have learned from my previous teachers and time at the Brubeck Institute and Berklee College of Music, as well as my experience as a professional musician, to help my students improve to their highest potential. My greatest joy in teaching comes from helping students like you overcome a musical challenge that they thought would be impossible! Our lessons will center around music you want to learn (whether it be jazz, classical, contemporary, etc), but will also give you a comprehensive musical foundation, and teach you how to teach yourself. I'd love to work with you!

About Lucas B.

I am a professional woodwind instrumentalist, composer, and educator. I was a Fellow at the Brubeck Institute before completing a degree in Performance from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

I have been teaching privately in-person for 9 years, as well as over Skype for the last 4 years, so I have experience adapting the in-person lesson experience to an online format. I have taught at various music camps and schools across CA and given master classes for students ranging from elementary school up through the university level and beyond. I have developed my own curriculum to teach improvisation, but also adjust my teaching method to fit the learning style and goals of each student. I also make it a priority to teach my students how to continue to teach and challenge themselves, as I believe this is an important skill to have not just in music, but in any context.

As a performer, I have had the opportunity to perform at such venues as the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Brubeck Festival, the Mingus Festival, Essentially Ellington, Dizzy's Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center, as well as other venues across the United States and Europe. I perform most often as a jazz musician, but have also studied classically on saxophone, flute, and clarinet, and have performed and recorded with groups in countless genres - including pop, funk, soul, R&B, video game music, film scores, folk music, and a host of others.

As a composer, I draw influence from jazz, classical, video game, contemporary, and many other musical traditions. I write and arrange music for a variety of contexts - feel free to look up my YouTube channel for some examples!

I look forward to partnering with you on your musical journey!
