Fun Music Teacher - Beckie E
Fun Music TeacherSanta Clarita , CA

Hi! My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play and teach many different instruments such as the Trumpet, French horn, Saxophone, Mandolin, Guitar, Clarinet, Voice, and Piano.I graduated from Chapman University in 2010 with 2 degrees in music, Music Education and Music Performance on French horn. I recently graduated from UCLA with my Masters in Music Performance on French horn.When I first began teaching, I taught at an elementary school for 3 years as a brass coach for a Montessori Academy. This is where I fell in love with teaching. I have been teaching privately for 12 years now and love the one-on-one attention that I can give the students.I have worked with many great organizations like the Los Angeles Philharmonic and California Philharmonic.I currently am a freelance musician. I perform regularly with two different orchestras and am in a Brass Ensemble called the Vine Street Brass and a horn ensemble called the Thursday Horn Club. I have performed in such wonderful venues as the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Sydney Opera house, in which I was able to premier a piece!I look forward to working with you or your child in helping to start or continue a musical instrument! *** Lesson Details *** When I teach lessons, I like to go at the pace of the student. I am very patient but I expect the student to practice during the week. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically. I use a lot of different books like Teaching little fingers to Play and Standard of Excellence.For Adults, I like the Big Beginners Piano book which has easy classical pieces to play!I teach the rudimentary skills and build on the fundamentals of music. After 3 or 6 months, my students feel accomplished with what they have learned and excited for the next 3 to 6 months!I usually play my instruments with the students, but being a freelance musician, I may need to save my chops for an upcoming gig. Not always, but happens from time to time :)*** Studio Equipment *** practice space in home w/ seating for parents and music stand. I also have a cat and a dog, so if you are allergic, please let me know! The cat and dog have always put away during the lesson time.*** Travel Equipment *** I have one music stand. I expect the student to provide the music books and their own instruments.*** Specialties *** I specialize in classical genres of playing.
