About Nathan West
Music Teacher, Expert
Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Instructs: Baritone, French Horn, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba
Education: Bachelor of Arts-Trumpet Performance, Master of Arts-Instrumental Conducting
Performance Experience: Mr. West has experience in almost all settings of brass playing. Symphonies, orchestras, jazz bands, brass bands, brass quintets, and even a ska band. Most notable of the settings being the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra and the Appalachian Brass Band.
Teaching Experience: Mr. West has held his own private trumpet studio for almost 8 years now. Additionally, he taught performance and music theory on a collegiate level for 2 years.
Teaching Philosophy: Fueling a creative drive in a student does more for learning music than any lecture ever could. Music reflects life and life invokes music. Each life experience is different and so is each learning experience. My biggest goal is to create an encouraging environment for each student to find their creative drive so their learning experience can be as unique as they are.
