About Ricky

Petaluma High School class of 2016; I will only be in town until August. In addition to music, I am an extremely dedicated student with a 4.15 GPA and an overall friendly person.

In addition to leading the trumpet section for two years and helping my trumpet players improve their skill, I have two additional students (one elementary student and one junior high student) that I see every week.

In my opinion, the most rewarding aspect of being a tutor is to see the progress of my understudies and the look on their face when they do a perfect run-through of a song that was giving them trouble a couple weeks ago.

I've taken marching and concert band since junior high as well as jazz band since my freshman year. Jazz is my personal preference; I was one of four sophomores to make it into the PHS Varsity jazz in 2013 and won the "Best jazz musician" award in my class as a senior three years later. I was also a member of the Sonoma County (concert) Honor Band in the spring of 2016.

Playing trumpet is a true passion of mine. There's no doubt in my mind that I can't help your child improve their trumpet skills while having a blast doing it!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I currently have two students that I am tutoring and, after only five or so weeks, I have seen dramatic improvement.
