We'll start with easy material (one note at a time) and move on to harder material (harmonies, music with multiple moving lines). You should be comfortable singing (you don't have to be good!) to get the most out of ear-training with me. My goal is to get you to recognize music theory concepts purely by ear and to be able to fluently replicate what you hear.

About Roxanne W.

I know my students can learn ANYTHING, and it's my job to guide them and inspire them in the most efficient and fun way I can. I have a versatile background as a trumpet playing composer who plays piano as well. I've played in almost every genre at one point or another as a professional trumpet player--pop, jazz, salsa, orchestral, wind band, christian rock, regular rock, etc. I auditioned on piano a few years ago in order to get my masters degree in composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I moved to the bay for the first time in order to get this degree and the pandemic hit right when I graduated. I still find time to actively challenge myself musically through playing and writing music, even though I commonly spend 1-3 hours every work day outside of lessons preparing/reviewing teaching notes and materials. I also love to make videos on youtube (channel: Rock with Roxanne). My dream is to find enough students to comfortably survive in San Francisco doing what I love (teaching, being a musician, and making videos!) :)

My son has looked forward to trumpet lessons since we began working with Roxanne. We've only experienced instruction via Zoom, yet we all feel he's learned quite a bit and he feels he has become a better trumpet player. As a parent, I appreciate her flexibility and clear communication. I have confidence in her teaching style and the apparent vision she has for this point in my son's musical journey.

Ms. Roxanne is a wonderful teacher with fun and inspiring tricks up her sleeve. She is able to captivate the imagination of young minds and help them achieve a consistent learning experience. I am so impressed by how effective her teaching methods are in keeping young restless minds interested in learning music. Roxanne's lessons are playful which is perfect for kids and adults alike. She creates fun musical games and creates funny stories and characters around musical concepts to help children remember. This is so much more fun than just plain memorizing! She even invents new games for individual children based on their own personal interests; recently she came up with a treasure hunt game in a young boy's backyard to help him learn about rhythm. Her YouTube channel keeps kids excited for the next lesson with creative and kid-friendly videos. She truly is an ingenious music teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to inspire you and your children in the way of music.
