French horn is my secondary instrument. I have spent a number of years practicing and have even had a few occasions to perform with it when trumpet is not needed. Anyone up to high school ability level is welcome to get in touch.

James has been an awesome teacher for my son. He has helped my son have expanded range on the trumpet and has helped him with his technical abilities. James worked with both my son's assigned music from band and worked to find more fun and creative music to play. I highly recommend James!

VERY good teacher. Patient and kind as well as very understanding. I get very embarrassed when people try to teach me things, but James makes me feel very comfortable with learning how to play. :-)

I've been teaching horn for eight years and my students have gone on to make the all region band at the middle school and high school level. I expect my students to practice daily, as well as do a fair amount of listening to professional horn players. I have many problem solving tricks for horn students that have helped them master the basics of such a difficult instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Jay did a very good job of comminicating with my twelve-year-old daughter on her level. He kept her first lesson simple, yet did not talk down to her.

I studied with Dale Clevenger at Indiana University for my Masters degree and bring the philosophy of musical goals first and foremost. The most important part of playing horn is sound and I will work with you to get the best sound possible.

I've been teaching Music for 5 plus years and my students have gone on to accomplish great things. My goal and challenge for every student is to teach them how to play, read and listen to music. This will enable them the ability to play any song and any style of music. I specialize in Jazz, R&B and Classical. Typically I learn my students leaning habits whether its hands on or visual and their attention span, so I can't effectively teach my students. Can't wait to meet you!

What I liked about Charles' teaching style is that he pushes, but in a very good way. My son took lessons with him, and a lot of times he can have teachers running in circles around him, but Charles was able to instruct in a way that worked very well and kept him focused.

I have been playing horn for 12 years in addition to my studies of brass instruments. I've performed as a part of wind ensembles, chamber groups, and pit orchestras. My approach to teaching is individualized, meaning that each student will receive special instruction to move forward from exactly where they are through where they wish to aspire.

David is the definition of professional. His trumpet knowledge and ability to help me improve in lessons week to week has been beyond beneficial. His talents extend much further than the trumpet and that aids in the lesson experience as a whole.
