About Stuart

Music is a force so strong that it can build a person's confidence, bring down cultural walls, and cross all boundaries...even of time. The trumpet is my instrument of choice. It takes a lifetime to master, a slow progression that, with hard work, creates the most unique and rewarding sound. This force is created through musicianship not mechanical prowess.

As a performer, music teacher and private lesson instructor, I have worked with musicians with zero to lifetime experience and I have found that the most exceptional musicians are well rounded. This is achieved by developing students' abilities to listen to and understand their role in music, ear training, music theory, and sight reading. I believe that the private lesson is not just a time where students work on finger exercises and technique, it is also a time where we learn about history, culture, style and have a lot of fun! We get to challenge ourselves and make mistakes so that we can grow into the best musicians that we can possibly be.

I've had great opportunities to study with some of the best music teachers in the industry: John Holt and Keith Johnson at University of North Texas and Dr. Steven Marx while at Colorado State University. Through their excellent mentorship, I learned the importance of technical proficiency and outstanding musicianship. Playing is more than hitting the right notes; it's communicating the intentions of the music.

I offer excellent in home lessons with availability on the evenings and weekends.
I understand that things come up and ask that you let me know of a cancellation 24 hours in advance. With notice, I am happy to schedule makeup lessons.

It's never too early or too late to expand on your musical skills. Hope to work with you soon!

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.

Trombone

I have been playing brass instruments for fifteen years and know well the dedication it takes to sound good on these instruments. I have received a bachelors in music education where I received all of the technical information on how to play the instrument and then I went further and earned a masters in music to further develop an understanding of tone and musicianship. When taking lessons I focus on the development of musicianship and tone as well as the training of technical skills.

Trumpet

Trumpet is my primary instrument and I have 15 years of experience on the instrument. I have worked with private lesson teachers at the collegiate level and have received a bachelor of music education and a masters in trumpet performance. When I teach I focus not only on hitting the right buttons at the right time but more importantly on a beautiful tone production and musicianship.
