Saxophone was the first instrument, aside from Piano, that I started to play. I started in 4th grade with this instrument until my middle school teacher in 6th grade asked me to switch to French horn. I continued to perform on Saxophone in our school's Jazz ensemble.
Hi! My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play many different instruments such as the Trumpet, French horn and Piano.

From a young age, I have been deeply involved in the musical community. I began studying piano when I was three, and throughout my education, I’ve learned from such accomplished instructors as Belle Mehus and Christopher Taylor. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from The University of Mary in North Dakota, I continue to study, teach, perform, and compose. I’ve also studied guitar and bass for nearly twenty years. I love playing and teaching these instruments because of the strong correlations between the way they are tuned and played and the way western music theory works—as well as the pure enjoyment that comes from them! Additionally, I have twenty years of education in oboe and other woodwind instruments. I was principle oboist for two orchestras and reached ...
Hello! My name is Ray - I'm 26 years old, born in Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. Here I was also introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer.

I can say with pride that it is my passion, and I anticipate teaching being a very important part of the rest of my life. I enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy, and in addition to teaching am currently working as a pop music producer. *** ...

If your child is struggling in band, or if you would like him or her to move up and progress faster please contact me. I've helped my students get to the top of their orchestra or band in just a couple weeks by focusing on mastering the school curriculum as well as enriching that curriculum with music and exercises chosen to strengthen the student's weakness and exploit strengths.
I've been teaching for almost 20 years. In that time I've had students of all ages, abilities and personalities. From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curriculum.

My professional experience is extensive. I've been doing commercial scoring for 12 years, I have experience with modern recording and engineering techniques and I play many instruments.
