The last Saturday of every month, we have the opportunity to give those interested in lessons to meet the teachers before committing to instruction. Teachers showcase their skills, give some basics about the instruments and discuss their teaching style in a friendly atmosphere. Appointments are strongly recommended as there are limited spots for each event.
This month’s teachers are:
1.) Joseph DeVizio - Violin/Viola/Beginner Cello
Joe has taught in the public school setting for over 30 years, giving him the energy and understanding for any beginner player of all ages.
2.) Helga Kaefer - Piano/Songwriting CANCELED 4/24
As her profile states, music is Helga's heart and you can see that with every lesson! She loves to see her students succeed and help them find their own music.
3.) Alexis Pareja - Guitar/Bass/Ukulele/Music Theory
Being a certified Yoga instructor, Alexis brings this calming effect to his lessons, making his students comfortable in their learning environment. Very patient, Alexis loves helping his students master those chords and strum along to their favorite pieces.

ABOUT HORNS OF PLENTY
Beginner instruments offer curious new students easy introductions to the experience of making music. But as students strive to develop stronger technique and improve sound quality, a beginning instrument may start to hinder that progress. A progressing student will eventually require a better instrument – a step-up instrument. Typically, a step-up instrument is crafted from better-quality materials, features improved action from finer construction and is designed for consistency across practice and performance. These elements help to improve sound, technique and build a student’s confidence which will help drive long-term success.
