I've been playing and studying trumpet, it's studies, and repertoire since year 2000 (all through middle school, high school, and college). The exercises, techniques and tuneful melodies that I've taught students have helped them grow in their music community, whether it be in the school band or local church. All ages and skill levels are welcomed!

About Jonathan
About

I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these well-rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

Education & Teaching Experience:

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis). I also have a temporary teaching certificate for Music K-12 fro
m the Florida Department of Education. I have taught in Florida as a preferred substitute for general music classes, K-12. In college, I have given study sessions for music theory levels ranging from 4-part writing to post-serialism.

Degrees:
Doctorate of Musical Arts: Guitar Performance; Shenandoah University, expected May 2019
Master of Music: Guitar Performance; University of Akron, May 2014
Bachelor of Music: Guitar Performance; Stetson University, 2011

While giving lessons:
I ensure that every student receives fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp its purpose and reason---whether its music or math.

Why?
My students have grown with confidence through a sense of accomplishment. Success does not only affect a person's well-being but can also impact other dimensions of their lives.

I teach beginner trumpet. I can help students learn to read music, play with good tone and technique, learn valve combinations (fingerings), and play from a book or school band music.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Trumpet is a wonderful instrument for both the young and young-at-heart. I have been playing trumpet for most of my life, and teaching it for 14 years.

About Tammye
I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

I have a wealth of experience as a trumpeter and music teacher, and hold three degrees in music: DMA from Univ. of Georgia, MM from UT-Austin, and BM from N. Dakota State Univ. I am trained mostly in and play primarily "classical" trumpet, but have experience performing and teaching jazz and pop/commercial styles. Working with kids and adults on music is enjoyable and fulfilling, and I strive to help students as much as possible.

First lesson exceeded my expectations. Andrew quickly and accurately sized up my status and began instruction that was easy to understand. He worked with me on techniques that resulted in me going from no “music” to my first set of scales. Andrew’s zeal to teach was very evident. I am very pleased.

Andrew is one of the most helpful and genuine instructor I have ever experienced, in my 12 years of playing the trumpet. He not only has helped me develop better, but he helped me understand rhythms and articulations. Additionally, he provides various techniques and exercises that stretch beyond just the instrument itself. Overall, the effort that he puts into his work shows how special of a teacher this man is.

Andrew Giska is very helpful when it comes to trumpet. He has a good knowledge of the trumpet and how to play. In a group setting, or even individual, he can locate a specific part in the music where people are struggling and can help fix the problem. Andrew is very reliable as he is very willing to meet with you and make you a better trumpet player. Overall, Andrew Giska is a recommended trumpet teacher as he is very good at what he does.

Summer is a perfect time for your or your student to begin learning a new instrument! I introduce students to the basics of trumpet playing, establishing good habits and proper playing technique that'll sustain them for a lifetime of music making.

In a fun and constructive environment I push my students to always strive for progress, designing weekly goal-logs to help them read music and improve on their instrument.

About Robert
Hello music makers! Do you want to know the big secret about French Horn? It's actually not the terrifying beast of a brass instrument that everyone makes it out to be. When you apply the proper playing technique and a confident mind set from Day 1, the Horn can be a fun and exciting instrument, let me prove it to you.

I have taught countless hours of private lessons and am passionate about helping others improve their music skills whether you're a beginner just learning to noodle, or a seasoned veteran looking to improve their technique. I graduated from Chapman University with a B.A. in Music in 2016 and have had the opportunity to play along side and learn from some of LA's finest professional musicians. Let me pass on to you what they've taught me.

I have been teaching professionally for 5 years and privately for 10 years, specializing in beginner/intermediate/advanced musicians. I teach voice, violin, guitar, and trumpet. I specificaly teach mariachi music but I also have knowledge of other genres of music. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I believe learining music should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

About Karla
I graduated from Sul Ross State University with a bachelors in vocal performance. I am currently a public school mariachi teacher and have been teaching for about 5 years. I also belong to a professional mariachi group where I play violin and sing, as well.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied violin for about 2 years, studied and have been playing mariachi for 18 years, and studied voice for 6 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue a career in mariachi or classical music. I can also teach students how to play any of the mariachi instruments (violin, trumpet, guitarron, vihuela, guitar) and teach them how to sing, as well.

As a professional mariachi player, I play every weekend during the evenings and nights and sometimes travel to different places around the United States to perform fo
r big artists.

I teach a variety of levels, beginners, intermediate, and advanced students and cater my lessons to their needs and specific goals that they have set for themselves.

Problem's with range, sight-reading, tone, or you just don't know how to get better at trumpet? I have my master's in trumpet performance from UTA and am starting to build a healthy studio at the middle/high school level and I'm looking to branch out, all ages welcome though. I have 3 years experience and am classically focused. Lessons are catered to the needs/goals of the student. My biggest strength is pedagogy. If you have a serious issue in your playing or don't know how to improve, you've come to the right man.

About Matthew
I am a classically trained trumpet player that has build his studio of students at the middle/high school level in Arlington and Mansfield ISD, and I am the brass marching tech at Lamar high school. I received my bachelor's in music education from The University of North Texas and my master's in trumpet performance from The University of Texas at Arlington. I currently play in the Crossroads Christian Church band, have played in concerts with the Arlington Community Band, and am looking to play professionally in orchestras around the metroplex.

The biggest plus I give my students is fixing the technical issues in their playing so that it is possible for them to pursue the playing goals of their choice. Many players who are passionate about music simply cannot pursue their dream because they are hindered by severe problems in range
, tone, sight-reading, endurance, finger technique, musicality, etc. I myself was not the most naturally gifted player out there and I had to really consider how the instrument worked in order to progress. Today, those issues are not problem to me now. There are many fine trumpet players out there who are great musicians but ineffective teachers of fundamentals as they simply never experienced the kinds of problems in their playing that many students unfortunately have. As a student, I too had many teachers like this. They were wonderful people, but not very helpful.

To sum it up, I can show you how to fix the problems in your playing so that you can make the music you want to make.

I am an avid brass performer and teacher in the greater Baltimore area, having played for over a decade. In lessons, we will work out of some of the most trusted method books, discuss fundamental playing techniques in an accessible and easy-to-understand way, and search for unique solutions to individual problems as I tailor my teaching method to your learning style. All ages are welcome.

About Zachary
Hello! My name is Zachary (or Zac for short) and I am a Baltimore-based brass performer and teacher. I have been playing euphonium and other brass instruments for 14 years. Currently, I am in my final year as a music education student at Towson University, where I study euphonium with US Navy musician James Hicks. In addition to euphonium, I am quite proficient on both trombone and tuba, and have taught trumpet and horn as well.

Currently, I play euphonium in the Towson University Symphonic Band and Towson University Tuba Euphonium Ensemble, trombone in a folk-rock style band, and am an avid solo artist. I also have two years of experience as a nationally touring member of the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps. In addition to these experiences, I have performed with the Cadets2 Drum & Bugle Corps, the Baltimore Ravens Marching Band, and th
e Bushwackers Drum & Bugle Corps. In 2013, I was a recipient of the United States Marine Corps Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence.

Outside of performing, I am an avid teacher in the Baltimore area and beyond. I have worked as an instructor with various high school bands, including Perry Hall High School, Rockville High School, and Urbana High School.

Zac taught me how to properly perform an aria in front of a whole lot of important people that I was stressed about. He gave me some excellent pointers on how to work with a pianist. His knowledge of music and his experience in performance has certainly shaped the way I perceive my own performances ever since that lesson.

As a musician, Zac is above and beyond talented. Because of his proficiency and excellence, he offers great insight and helpful hints on how to play properly and with support, two extremely important parts of being a musician. Lastly, it is quite obvious what music means to him. His passion is inspiring, and makes me want to continue to pursue and practice my instrument. His lessons helped me develop from a second part to a first part, enabling me to play higher and more challenging parts for my band. Knowing that I was able to leave better than I started makes myself feel lucky and appreciative that I was able to take lessons with a person like Zac. Overall, one of the best music instructors I have had the pleasure of working with.
