Larry Shudra, a music educator teaching music for over 25 years in public schools and privately in my home studio in the Fairfield subdivision in Cypress, Texas. BME Baylor University in Instrumental Music. I have experience teaching all instruments and I specialize in trumpet and all brass instruments, guitar and drums. I am available for private music lessons all year, music camps, or to tech your band’s brass sections. My focus is to teach young people and adults to play their instrument better in an enjoyable way. An individual’s unique attraction to music and their joy of music is what I design an individualized, one-on-one, music lesson instruction program around. My program of instruction covers playing fundamentals, number one being a beautiful tone, reading music and preparation for solos, region, area and all-state auditions. I have been successful working with students with focus issues, low self esteem and performance anxieties through one-on-one instruction that is hard to do in a band class. More…
