Location Change

My family will be moving to Aurora at the end of September! We will have better space for lessons and look forward to the new opportunities this will provide!

Policies and Contracts, oh my!

I have made the following changes to the web site:

  • Students/Policies: The policies page has been updated with current guidelines for gaining the most benefit from lessons. View them here.
  • Take Lessons/Contracts: I have uploaded samples of my current lesson contracts. Take a look by clicking here.

Jacobs Family Plus One

I am proud to announce the birth of my second daughter, Elizabeth Jacobs, on July 2, 2012! She is teeny tiny and it is so cute to watch her big sister experience having someone smaller than her. Mother and baby are both doing fine.


Hello, and welcome to The Brass Coach! In an attempt to more effectively focus my teaching studio, I am starting The Brass Coach as the portal to all my activities related to teaching private low brass lessons and coaching brass ensembles.

Here you will find useful information for brass players and information for registering for lessons and coaching. There will be a many improvements and additions to the site as time goes on. Thank you for your interest. I hope to see you again soon!
