" There's a difference between playing the notes and making the Music. Wanna know the difference? "I've been a professional musician and teacher for over 35 years. I have a degree from the University of Minnesota and I studied music at the University of St. Thomas when I was in high school. I've performed and recorded with numerous artist including The Temptations, Peter Noone (Herman's Hermits), Bobby Z, Billy McLaughin, Presidential Inauguration 2005, The Shirelles, Martha Reeves, Larry King, The Guess Who, Quiet Riot, Loverboy, J. Hoye and many more. I received the Certificate of Achievement from Billboard Magazine for production and songwriting, etc.,etc. enough about me though.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different so I like to base lessons for each student upon their strengths and weaknesses. Some students are just beginning, others want to improve upon their skills. Some students want to learn more about Classical music, others want to learn jazz and improvisation, others rock and roll or country et. al.. Others want to know how music works-the theory

wow! so knowledgeable, I can't believe what I have learned in 3 lessons. And I never feel intimidated or feel I can't learn it. And this comes from an over the hill piano player. Highly recommend Schroeder!!

Schroeder's passion for music is evident from the first lesson. He was just what we were looking for in an instructor- knowledgeable, experienced and relaxed.

Flute

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I'm very good with young students. Flute is very difficult for smaller, younger ones because of the instruments size. And it's difficult to even get a sound sometimes.
