The key to successful lessons is to motivate the student with positive feedback, discipline, variety of styles of music, and FUN!! I have been providing this encouraging and nurturing setting to brass students for over 15 years. I have successfully help prepare students for district festivals, recitals, BYSO auditions, and college auditions. Lessons focus on classical technique, jazz and rock styles, composition, and improvisation.
