Roberta Archibald

Advanced Brass, Beginner: Woodwinds, Piano, Guitar

I have been involved with music my entire life! I began with piano and moved on to playing cornet/ trumpet in concert band. Presently, I perform regularly in many concert bands, jazz bands, small combos and my husband and I have a Duo called “Serenade and Swing” which specializes in light classical and jazz music.

I am passionate about teaching anyone who loves music and wants to explore it! This includes young children just beginning their journey in music, to those already studying music in school, as well as adults and seniors who enjoy music and the social aspect of participating in group ensembles.
