Brass session musician from such games as Mortal Kombat 11 and Legend of Tangledeep teaches brass lessons over the internet from Midland, Texas.

Methodology

When teaching individual students, I like to take into account two main things - the student's current playing level, and their goals and dedication. I don't believe in forcing students on a path they don't want to follow. Rather I take their goals into account and maximize fundamentals-based instruction to reach that goal as completely as possible. I also aim to teach the student how to effectively teach themselves, so that they can know how to approach challenges they encounter outside of lessons.

Background

I am a working brass session musician - recording on French horn, trumpet, and trombone. I have appeared on several video game soundtracks as a soloist, most notably Mortal Kombat 11. I have taught in multiple settings, both in private lessons and as a band director in the state of Texas. My degrees are from West Texas A&M University - B.M. in Music Composition and Music Education, and M.A. in Music Composition.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $60/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $250
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $450

Details

My rates are negotiable depending on the student's financial needs. If a student is interested in lessons but cannot afford my rate, we can come to an agreement that is fair for both parties.
