It’s an unbelievable time right now. Many of us are confined by four walls, trying not to go a bit mad. If you’re looking for something positive and fun to do, take your old brass instrument out from under the bed, grease the slides, oil the valves and send me a message to get started. We’ll have an online lesson! No need to be intimidated by the idea… we all need to work on something. Whatever level you’re at, I will provide easy-to-understand strategies to improve your playing, and expand your understanding of music. I will also provide pdf’s to go through. No fancy technology needed, you just need: A device (laptop/ ipad) with a web camera, an internal microphone, and a good internet connection.
30 minutes = $40 | 45 minutes = $50
