About Me

I currently play trombone with the West Point Concert Band and am also an active freelance trombonist and euphoniumist in the New York, tri-state area. On any given day I could be performing various genres of music including orchestral, jazz, chamber, rock, funk and hip-hop/R&B. My career has led me to perform with various ensembles in prestigious halls around the country such as Carnegie Hall, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. Working as a musician has also given me the opportunity to travel the world as a performer. Most recently I went on tour throughout China with the Manhattan Symphonie this past December.
In addition to my career as a performer, I am an active educator. I teach private lessons as well as conducting master classes for groups in schools. In the past past I have worked as a teaching artist for the Phil Ramone Orchestra for Children, where I taught group trombone and music theory lessons.

I fell in love with music at the age of five when I began taking piano lessons. I began studying trombone and Euphonium at the age of 10. In 2002 I was accepted to the University of Michigan as a double major in trombone and euphonium performance where I studied with David Jackson and Fritz Kaenzig. I graduated from the Manhattan School of music in 2010 where I received my masters in trombone performance, studying with Stephen Norrell.

I have been teaching private trombone, euphonium, and tuba lessons to students of all ages and skill levels, as well as piano lessons at the beginner level for eight years. I look forward to working with you to help develop your own special musical voice. With my experience as a teacher and performer, I have confidence that I can help you achieve your personal musical goals, whether you are just starting out, trying to pursue music as a career, and everything in between. I have been lucky to have studied with many great teachers throughout my life and am excited to share all the knowledge I have gained from them with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I am understanding and patient, but do expect that students put in a fair amount of effort into their preparation at home and during the lesson. I believe that honesty and trust on the behalf of both teacher and student is key to building a great teacher/student relationship and to the progress of the student. I realize that everyone has a lot on their plates and therefore your lesson preparation may suffer from time to time. However I do expect that you generally show up ready and eager to learn. I will always do my very best to be 100% prepared as well to teach.

Students come to me at all different skill levels and with different interests and goals in mind, so each lesson is designed to help that individual student reach his or her personal goal. Everyone learns a bit differently so my methods may vary depending on how you best learn.

I emphasize fundamentals with all of my students. It is so important for brass players to develop good habits early on. We will work on different exercises to address tone production, proper breathing, flexibility, articulation etc. Every lesson will begin with a warm up that will incorporate these different fundamentals. Playing a brass instrument is very similar to being an athlete. You always stretch before going for a long run, so you always warm up before diving into your repertoire!

I like for the students to have a say in what music they learn. I want you to learn music that you are passionate about. Therefore, music will be picked based on your interests and your skill level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The Studio location is at her apartment in upper Manhattan. The lessons are taught in the living room or office with a keyboard and some music is provided. You must provide your own trombone, euphonium or tuba and may need to purchase some music. Seating is also available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide some music. I expect the student to provide a piano or trombone, euphonium or tuba and may require them to purchase some method books.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all low brass instruments to students of all ages. I specialize in teaching classical and jazz.

Bradley M. South Orange, NJ

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba

About Me

Hello! I'm a professional low brass performer working in the New York City Tri-State Area. As a freelancer, I have to play in many different musical situations, and do so while sounding like I work in that situation every day. I have the expertise to help you learn a wide variety of styles, and I love working with enthusiastic and hard-working students!

I moved from Minnesota to attend the New School Jazz Program, and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2005. I then attended Brooklyn College to become a NYS certified music teacher, and taught in middle and high schools for 5 years before embarking on my freelance career. During college and my teaching years, I taught private students from age 5 - 85, all sharing one thing - a love for music!

In addition to teaching the low brass family, I can also teach trumpet and piano. I have worked as a pianist with the band "The Sharp Things," and have years of students under my belt. I can also teach a wide variety of performance topics (overcoming stage fright, improvisation, interpretation, and other performance topics), as well as music theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me, the lessons are built around you! Based on what you tell me your interests are, I will build lessons around the skills necessary to be able to play the music you like. What kind of teacher you want me to be is up to you - if you are looking for a stricter teacher who will constantly hold you to the highest standards? I can be that teacher. If you are looking for a more laid-back teacher to help you learn a new hobby, I can be that teacher as well. With my background in teaching in schools, I have learned how to adapt my teaching style to your needs.

Lessons are generally a 50/50 split between raw skills (scales and other technical work) and music, which will allow you to develop your abilities quickly while still learning how to play the music you love. How quickly you develop is up to you - you might be able to play a song or two after 3 months, or you might have an entire set of music - I will teach you how to practice, and it's up to you how much you do.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Piano, Digital keyboard (full size with weighted keys), large space, multiple seating for multiple people, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instrument, method books that I ask them to purchase, stand, and blank staff paper (preferably in a notebook format). I provide extra exercises, and if studying jazz, lead sheets for songs we are learning.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Contemporary Popular Styles (Funk, Rock, Pop, etc)

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

I am a multi-instrumentalist who has taught for 41 years. I have had both Zakke Wilde and Dave Sabo of Skid Row in lessons, as well as countless music school scholarship students. Many of my students have embarked on performing careers as well as teaching at the school and college level. The lessons are laid back, friendly and above all- helpful. We will study and work on the music of your choice,but, with a slight twist from the traditional, that I incorporate not just playing the song, but to get you the student ready to be able to work out the songs harmony, theory, notation and phrasing on your own. I feel this must be done in order to get a student to be able to perform with others. Lessons should always be about instructing a student to know and utilize every musical concept so that they will be able to perform with others.

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect to be well grounded in theory and being able to play an instrument with solo and chords, comping, etc., in all keys - as well as song structure and song learning.We will analyze all aspects of the song. We will do a song together, then, i will through theory, show the student how to work out a song on their own.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have amps, cables, recorders, books, sheets, etc here at the studio. You need only your instrument and a music writing book.

*** Travel Equipment ***
they must have instrument

*** Specialties ***
All methods are my own. We work through theory and analysis to enable a student to learn how to put a song together and perform it on their own.
