Brass Lessons in Fort Mill, SC

Musicians in Motion offers brass instruction to students who wish to learn the trumpet and trombone. Beginner brass players will learn proper embouchure and muscle memory techniques. School band students find private music lessons beneficial as it is impossible for the school band director to give the necessary attention to each band member 100% of the time.

Brass students will:

  • strengthen technique: scales and arpeggios, tone, articulation, breathing, musicality/phrasing, theory, and gain harmonic understanding

  • work on independent goals (solo repertoire, auditions and performance preparation)

  • develop strong literacy and sight reading ability

CRYSTAL FRENCH

“We are each born with an urge to express ourselves. When I was 5, my mother chose the piano for me.  As I grew older, I began to understand that there were no shortcuts to obtaining the skills required for self-expression. Now, as a music educator my goal is to assist my students in learning the fundamentals needed to express their own voice.”

Crystal is a classically trained pianist and multi instrumentalist who studied under the instruction of Joyce Harwood and Alma Rae Tucciarone before majoring in music at Pfeiffer University with a concentration in piano and trombone.. She studied jazz trombone under the instruction of international trombonist and Fulbright Scholar, Tom Smith and piano underneath prolific composer and recording artist, Dr. David Palmer. 

For over 15 years, Crystal has taught students of all ages and levels of advancement. Her students are the recipients of numerous awards and regularly receive the highest ratings in competitions and festivals. Her teaching career began while in college when she taught her first piano lesson through a music program she developed at the Senior Center in her hometown of Albemarle, NC. Since then she has taught in numerous pre-k through 12th grade classrooms, developed multiple music programs, given back to the community by hosting perform-athons, conducted and developed curriculum for after school enrichment programs and directed summer music camps. Crystal was also recognized and received the Top Teacher of the Year Award two years in a row, presented by Steinway & Sons Piano Gallery-Charlotte in 2016 and 2017.
