I've appeared on records with dozens of NYC area rock and pop bands, and perform as a classical and jazz trombonist in all five boroughs and New Jersey.
I listen to and play all kinds of music from Beethoven to Stravinsky, Arcade Fire to Beyonce, James Brown to Snoop Dogg/Lion. I have had the pleasure to share the stage with rockers Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), and jazz greats Maynard Ferguson, Jimmie Lunceford, Conrad Herwig, "Blue" Lou Marini, and Jeff Coffin (Flecktones).
I've played acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, trombone, tuba, French horn, violin, cello, and string bass in virtually all different styles. Some of my favorite recent projects have been:
-Quilty (Pavement-style hard rock band)
-The Nevermind Orchestra (brass band that covers Nirvana tunes; I play trombone)
-Chill Sons (my own band for which I write songs, play guitar, and sing)
-Manhattan Symphonie (an entertaining symphony orchestra featuring soloists on piano, violin, saw, urdu, and tap shoes)
I received a BM in trombone from University of North Texas, an MM in brass pedagogy from Ohio University, and am currently a DMA student in bass trombone at Rutgers University.
It is a treat to share music with others, and my lessons are fun, challenging, and engaging.
Thanks for stopping by to look at my profile! Let's hang out and do music things.
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone
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.
Piano, Music Theory, Trumpet, Trombone
Thank you for visiting my page! Here is some background about me: I began playing piano at age five and soon after began learning the trombone. I have always had a passion for music and graduated from Ithaca College with two degrees; one in Music Education and one in Tenor Trombone Performance. I have been teaching privately for nine years and have experience in group and classroom teaching as well. My students are extremely important to me and the best part of my day is sharing music with them!

My name is Andre, I'm 24 years old, and currently reside in Syosset, NY. I pride myself in being the best teacher to all of my students, and to have them succeed in all they do!
I'm a goal oriented, passionate, and motivated individual full of personality who thoroughly believes learning music should be fun and easy! I help my students to find the motivation within themselves so that they will be able to watch themselves grow as musicians. My students will be able to achieve as much as possible in and out of the classroom. Music is one of many subjects where you're learning mostly by experience! Therefore, students should be able find that their growth depends on the work they put into every lesson as well as every one of their practice efforts. Their constant involvement in music will allow them to think and act as musicians, helping them to understand that we all learn from every musical situation we're put in! I enjoy helping my students to achieve a sense of confidence in the way they play their instrument(s) as well by creating as many musical experiences as possible to have students actively participating. My goal is to instill the passion, drive, and energy that music has brought into my own life into the lives of others. Music speaks to the soul of many musicians and much like any primary language we speak, music is learned, and finally mastered! I want to be a part of my students journey on their road to success in being the best musician they can be!
At the end of my high school career, I decided to take my musical studies further to Five Towns College located in Dix Hills, NY, where I studied music education, and my major instrument was tuba! It was my freshmen year at college when I decided to teach myself how to play electric bass guitar. I found myself constantly feeling motivated to learn more about music, how to play more instruments through putting myself in as many musical situations as possible! Going to college and having first hand experiences in all of the musical opportunities the world has to offer has made me the well-rounded individual and skilled musician I am today. However, students can have these same experiences without having to wait until college. It's never too early to get started learning an instrument, and it's most certainly never too late! I want my students to always feel proud of their musical successes and teach them all that I can while constantly reminding them that you can do and achieve ANYTHING you put your mind to.
