Detailed Information

Are you or someone you know struggling with time to practice?

Most of us have heard “practice makes perfect” but Vince Lombardi is credited with saying what’s really true, “Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
And that is the key!  If you are just starting with your brass instrument, or have been playing for a while and are struggling in any way with consistency, endurance, and range, Ezra can help.  You are most likely just missing a few key pieces that will make your practice and performance as “perfect” as possible.
Ezra is certified with a proven brass teaching method that helps you understand how to practice and what to practice.  Give him a call and he will be happy to talk with you and see if being a student is a good fit.  If so, you will have one of the best opportunities to play the way you want and also take care of your family, sports, band, homework, job, and everything else that needs to be done.
