Does your son or daughter want to learn the trumpet? Mandy Marksteiner is a local trumpet players who teaches private lessons at the Los Alamos Music Academy (LAMA).
She is hosting a free open house 7-8 p.m. Saturday, April 28 where children and their parents can meet her and find out more about taking trumpet lessons. Marksteiner will provide several trumpets for students to look at and try and will provide a packet of information on the trumpet, practice habits and listening recommendations. Pizza will be served.
“Mandy is a huge asset to our music program. When the students work with her not only do they develop technique and musicianship, but they become more motivated toward personal success and achievement,” LAMS Band Director Ryan Finn said.
Marksteiner has a BA in trumpet performance from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. She has taught group lessons at the Los Alamos High School and Los Alamos Middle School, at the Lawrence Academy of Music, as well as privately in people’s homes.
She said she looks forward to teaching individual and group lessons at LAMA and offering classes for trumpet players. The Los Alamos Music Academy is at 200 DP Road in Los Alamos.
