Gregory H. Astoria, NY

Subjects Taught

French Horn, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Eyedrum, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta and Radio City Music Hall and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

Christopher E. North Brunswick, NJ

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Bass Trombone, French Horn, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

I am a doctoral candidate in Music at Rutgers University specializing in brass pedagogy with ten years of professional teaching and performing experience. Whether you are just starting out on a horn or have a few years under your belt, I can help you realize your musical potential and show you how rewarding playing a musical instrument can be!

*** Lesson Details ***
The focus of each lesson depends heavily on the level of each student... beginning students can expect a larger portion of the instruction to focus on fundamentals and music reading so as to lay a foundation for further success. For these students I will generally work out of an existing band method as these are more than adequate, and perhaps add a few supplemental materials which in include simple exercises specific to the instrument, scale patterns, and rhythm/music reading examples.

More advanced students can expect to review proper technique and work on appropriate etudes and solo repertoire. I spend a lot of time working on practice technique. Confidence building if necessary. If the student plays in a jazz band we can work on bebop/swing/improvisation as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a stand, tuner, metronome, and video and audio recording devices should we decide to use them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide teaching materials and can bring a music stand. Student needs working instrument, and should own a tuner, metronome, and music stand. For a tuner/metronome I recommend a Korg TM-50. Nearly anything will do for a stand but I'd avoid a flimsy fold-up stand. I recommend an On-Stage SM7211. Can't go wrong with a Manhasset black stand either.

*** Specialties ***
Classical solo repertoire and audition preparation. Blues and bebop improvisation. Musicality and lyricism. Technique.

About Me

My name is Daniel, but you can call me Dan. I am a current graduate from Hofstra University with a degree in Music Education. I was inspired to start studying priviatly on Saxophone when I was 9 years old. After that I have developed as a musician who can do it all. From composition to improvising, everything about music is appealing to me. I specialize in classical and jazz performance. I have performed with numerous groups on the Hofstra Campus. My most recent performances were with the Hofstra University Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Big Band, and Chorus. I currently study music composition priviatly with Dr. Kenith Lampl and am seeking a graduate degree in film scoring. My goal as a teacher is to help guide you to find your own sound and motivate yourself to keep playing and develop a love for music like I did.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will help you become inspired and motivated to perform on your instrument. Above all, lessons will fun and engaging for students where they will develop a passion and love for what they do.

Each lesson will begin with fundamental warm ups geared to help build facilitation on your instrument. Repertoire will be discussed in lessons and will cater to your individual playing style. Proper technique and style will be stressed throughout each lesson. Each lesson will end by reflecting upon your progress and thoughts as a student.

As a private instrumental teacher I feel my responsibilities are to prepare students for NYSSMA, concerts, auditions, and band rehearsals.

My goal is for my students to become inspired. Through inspiration so much can be accomplished!

*** Studio Equipment ***
