With an emphasis on jazz and improvisation, my goal is to provide insight along your musical path. Here some of the topics we may explore:

Trumpet technique - We'll build custom exercises, some focusing on your strengths, others challenging the edge of your abilities. Rather than looking at practice as "warming up", we'll shift our mindset to "trumpet calisthenics" (inspired by Laurie Frink).

Jazz - We'll define jazz chords and learn how to play the notes in (and around!) them. We'll find melodies to flow from one chord to the next. We'll also discuss forms and listen to rich recordings of the jazz masters.

Free Playing - This is when we can let go of the analytic mind and simply make sound. We can direct our attention to non harmonic concepts like emotions, shapes, textures, and images. Sometimes I'll put a drone on during this segment or we'll play call and response ideas.

About Tom

With a passion for jazz and improvisation, I have gladly devoted the past 25 years of my life to understanding this wonderful instrument. As a teacher, my goal is to provide insight along your musical path. Lessons look different for each student- here some or all of the topics we explore:

Tom is an amazing teacher, so gentle, patient and kind with our shy 12 year old. Tom was great in engaging him and we feel very good about their relationship already after the first lesson. He seems to know right away how to tailor the lesson based on where our son is at. He has already made improvements in his first class. We look forward to future lessons with Tom.

I have loved learning and teaching guitar for over a decade. I have a really great method that will string you through the lessons you need to get you on your feet!

About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off.

Our first lesson was WONDERFUL. Keith was so patient with my son (6) and explained things in a way he understood. Plus, he was really engaging and made it easy to connect over video. We finished the lesson 15 minutes ago and my son hasn’t left the piano yet!

"Josh has been teaching our two kids piano, mixture of classical and popular, for about four years now. At this point one of our kids is 13 and the other 11. He's a wonderful, inspiring, enthusiastic and all round excellent piano teacher. Our kids are very different, and the younger one, our daughter, is slower to catch on. Josh is incredibly patient, and keeps her engaged. In the case of our son, he mixes classical with popular, and picks up on songs my son enjoys, to keep the lessons interesting. Josh typically would come to our home to teach two back-to-back lessons. More recently he has gone remote/online. In either setting he's just spectacular. We recommend him highly . . . and have recommended him to friends all of whom feel similarly about him as we do. He's also a really nice guy, and a pleasure to have in the house. He's also helped us with entertainment at a family function. Get in touch with Josh, you won't be sorry."
