Jon E. Reno, NV

About Jon

I began teaching when a friend/teacher recommended me as a substitute teacher at Musicians Institute in L.A.. I walked into the class with no prior teaching experience but just took to it naturally from day one. Soon I was teaching there full time. I later learned that I come from a long line of teachers, it runs in the family. I think of teaching basically as this, recognizing a students needs and goals and then communicating with them clearly and simply in order to accomplish those goals. I enjoy teaching and often learn from my students in unforeseen ways. I consider my students to be friends.

Holly S. Reno, NV

About Holly

Greetings! My name is Holly and I absolutely love teaching music. I'm currently a full time elementary general music teacher where I teach all students grades k-6. I earned a Bachelor of Music Education from The Ohio State University in the spring of 2012, then moved out to Reno for my full-time teaching job. I especially love teaching beginner students on piano, trumpet, guitar and french horn. I can teach intermediate students on trumpet and horn and advanced students on horn. (French horn was my main instrument in college.) I like to make my lessons fun, creative and full of juicy musical knowledge. I'm quick to tell a joke and help new students feel comfortable and relaxed. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn a new instrument!

What's in a name? If you're looking for songwriting tips as you pen your next tune, check out this advice from Perth Amboy, NJ teacher Jeff S...   There is not one "right" or preferred way to write a song.
