Our founder, Joe Winslow, started teaching lessons to his friends’ younger siblings back in 2014. Through this experience he learned how to connect with young students and help them explore the beauty of music. Since then, he has received his B.M. in Music Education from the Crane School of Music in 2020, and his M.M. in Music Education from Syracuse University in 2022. His recitals have included performances on trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet and ukulele, in addition to classical and jazz performances on his primary instrument of saxophone. He has studied composition and arranging, performing a variety of his pieces both with his ensembles. He has performed at venues such as the Vinegar Hill Theater and the Bush Compound on Walker Point, as well as a jazz tour through Switzerland and Italy.
Outside of music, Joe has been involved in his community in other ways. He was an active member of Stratham Boy Scout Troop 185 for many years, and received his Eagle Scout rank in 2016. As a Boy Scout, he was a summer camp counselor in 2014 and 2015 at Camp Carpenter in Manchester NH. He has completed many community service hours and continues to reach out to local schools to help out with their music programs.
Tristan is a graduate of the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY. He is currently serving as the elementary general music teacher in the Canastota Central School District.
Tristan’s main instrument is the trumpet which he has played for over 13 years. Ever since he picked up the trumpet in 4th grade, he has played in a variety of ensembles such as bands, orchestras, jazz bands, marching bands, and others. Tristan believes that a student should be equipped with the knowledge and abilities to play in any style of music, and students should have the freedom of selecting any piece, song, or genre they may be interested in.
Along with the trumpet, Tristan plays and teaches other brass instruments, drums/percussion, guitar, and piano.
Outside of music, Tristan loves to play chess and frisbee, and he enjoys spending quality time with his friends and family.
