Trombone is probably the most fun brass instrument. I enjoy getting beginners started and intermediate students to the next level.

About Jacob
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide their own instrument. I will bring mine. I will suggest music to get in the student doesn't have their own.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all brass instruments (trumpet, horn, euphonium, baritone, trombone, and tuba), and trumpet is my specialty. I can also teach beginning to intermediate piano and guitar lessons. In addition, I have extensive experience teaching ear training, music theory, and composition. I am fluent in all styles--Classical, jazz, pop, funk, etc.

I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

I enjoy teaching beginning technique including making a sound, learning slide positions, reading bass clef notation, and learning to play in tune with a tuner.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Need to work on music for NYSSMA? High school auditions? Want to learn how to play with your favorite songs? Looking to strengthen your chops? Looking to have fun practicing and growing with the trombone? Well...
ALL AGES WELCOME!
Students will be taught how to create a relationship with the the trombone and allow it to become a vehicle for there own creativity. Through teachings of tension free and relaxed technique I hope to bring the student to become magicians of the instrument so that the magic of making music becomes reality.

About Abdulrahman
Hello! I am a trombonist, educator, composer, and producer. I started learning music when I was in middle school and have adopted it as my lifestyle. I spent most of my initial studies under the wing of Weston Sprott; Principal trombonist of the Metropolitan Opera. Now, I am a full scholarship graduating student of the Manhattan School of Music and a full time member of the 6 time Grammy winning Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble led by maestro Arturo O' Farill. Support also comes to me from my sponsors/endorsers Antoine Courtois. I perform at venues all over NYC both as a sideman and a band leader! Music is a gift and it is meant to be shared! I hope that I could have the honor of sharing that with you and that we may grow together.

About PAUL
*UPDATED AVAILABILITY FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR*

Hi! My name is Paul. I graduated in 2016 from Arizona State University with my Master of Music in Performance. I am completing the final year of my D.M.A. program at Arizona State University.

I have almost a decade of teaching experience that ranges from private, one-on-one lessons to larger masterclasses. My private students have auditioned into numerous all-region and all-state ensembles.

My performance experience is quite varied. I was a tenured member of the Washington-Idaho Symphony on bass trombone for five years. I left to pursue my Masters degree from ASU. Other orchestral experience includes several Summer Pops concerts with the Great Falls Symphony, some featured artists such as Kansas and Charlie Daniels. I have spent several years playing in jazz bands, Jazz I from the Uni
versity of Idaho and Concert Jazz Band from ASU. In the spring of 2016, I performed with ASU's Concert Jazz Band at Highland Jazz Festival where we featured Wayne Bergeron and Andy Martin. Recent performances include Salt River Brass' " Made in America" program featuring trumpet soloist Rex Richardson, Phoenix Theatre's run of "Bullets Over Broadway," and performing with and conducting the Arizona State University Trombone Ensemble at the 2017 International Trombone Festival. In December 2017, I made my solo debut performing with Salt River Brass. I recently attended the 2018 Pokorny Seminar where I worked with numerous musicians including Tim Higgins (SFO), Jim Markey (BSO), Dr. Andrew Glendening (Host/RSO), and Gene Pokorny (CSO).

I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.

As a performer with the Southern Indiana Wind Ensemble, Indianapolis Wind Symphony, and the Indiana University Symphonic Band, I have extensive performance experience as an ensemble player and as a soloist. I am familiar with the common repertoire of trombone music/etudes, and can assist students with anything from supplemental lessons to their curricular music program all the way to college audition prep.

About Chris
Originally from Bloomington, IN, I've worked as a music instructor and professional musician for over 8 years. I love being involved in all aspects of the music industry, whether it's writing, teaching, arranging, performing, recording, producing, or promoting.

I have taught over 50 students in the 6 years I've been teaching, and have had several of those students go on to become music majors in college. My focus as an educator is to establish fundamentals and vitally important techniques as effectively and quickly as possible with my students. Then, it becomes more enjoyable and sustainable to begin making great music (all the while incorporating those important aspects of being a musician!).

My primary instruments are drums, saxophone, and euphonium. However, I am proficient and frequently perform on trombone, clarinet, bass, g
uitar, and many other instruments. I enjoy playing jazz and classical music the most, but have performed professionally with groups of just about every popular genre! My musical interests have no bounds, and I believe that all music has something great to offer.

So, let's get started: beginner, intermediate, or advanced, we can begin rapidly building your musical foundation/career right away!
