First lesson was a great success, Mr. West got straight to work and had my son sounding much better after only half an hour. Looking forward to my son gaining skill and confidence with Mr. West's guidance.

I have been teaching brass for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

Great saxophone instructor! He is encouraging, positive and motivating. I am a middle school student in Jazz and Symphonic Band. This is only my second year playing the saxophone and he has helped me a lot. I highly recommend him!

Why TakeLessons?

Tuba Lessons

Would you like to experience playing an instrument with a sound so big and deep that everyone will be sure to pay attention to you? If so, you should try playing the tuba. As you may or may not know, the tuba is the largest and lowest pitched instrument among the brass wind family. It may seem to be an uncommon instrument to play, especially in popular music, however the tuba has been widely employed in creating the distinct sound of drum and bugle corps, drum and brass corps, marching bands, concert bands, and jazz bands. The tuba can be somewhat difficult to play due to its size and the manner in which its sound is produced, but luckily tuba lessons exist so you can learn the knowledge required to properly play the instrument. By taking tuba lessons with us, you will learn the basic techniques required to excel with this baroque trumpet-resembling instrument.
