I'd love to help you reach your goals on the horn!
As part of my doctoratal studies in horn performance I am creating and studying different teaching methods for all levels.
I've been teaching for over 10 years and I have a degree in psychology including classes in performance and teaching techniques.
My favorite part about teaching is learning the unique needs of each student and providing them with the teaching style and method that will help them most succeed.
Blair is an incredible horn player, teacher and person! She shares her enthusiasm and expertise in a way that her students are excited about horn. I have observed Blair teaching a wide range of students and she is able to adjust her teaching style accordingly. Blair is in high demand as a teacher so sign up fast!
Blair is an AWESOME teacher, I made so much progress working with her!!! She always gave really good pointers, honed in on things I needed to improve, and overall made me a way better horn player, all while being super approachable and encouraging. 10/10 would recommend :)
Blair was always focused on the education of the student. She worked with me and focused on my individual weaknesses and made me a better player. I highly recommend her, she has a kind heart and cares for her students.
I like to start off with a free "getting to know you" session so I can learn your goals and see if we would be a good fit!
I'm currently finishing a doctorate degree at Stony Brook University in order to teach collegiately.
I have an undergraduate dual-degree in music and psychology.
Classes during a Performance Certificate program at the Manhattan School of music in Teaching Techniques.
Pricing depends on student level and time. Discounts for those who sign up monthly!
Elementary to seniors! But I've spent the most time with high school/undergraduate level students and group elementary classes.
If you have a goal in mind, look for a teacher that is prominent in that area of expertise! I would also look for someone with degrees toward education because playing well and being a good teacher don't always go hand in hand.
