Alaina A. New York, NY

About Alaina

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 had never held a trombone in my hands before I started taking lessons with Alaina, but just after 3 one-hour lessons I can already play some simple tunes, which makes me very happy.

Alaina is very humble, sweet and, what's most important - very clear with instructions.

I highly recommend her as a teacher.

Gregory H. Astoria, NY

One of the most enjoyable instruments to play when done correctly.

About Gregory

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 ...

This experience has been wonderful!!

These classes are for my granddaughter, Victoria (7). Gregory has been amazing. He's patient and a great teacher. Victoria has learned so much already. I am glad that I am able to provide this experience for her. Gregory has inspired her to work harder and practice everyday. It makes her happy.

I have had three classes so far with David, but already from the first class I knew he was supreme! He is an excellent teacher and an excellent musician. What keeps impressing me is his ability in understanding exactly what I am doing wrong while I play just by hearing the sound of the trumpet. Super!

Patient and Knowledgeable

Michael is great at listening to what I want to learn, and then teaching it to me in a way that I can understand easily. Also, he's very patient when there's a skill / technique that I'm trying to figure out how to master.

Michael is an wonderful teacher! He is extremely patient, very encouraging, informative, personable, and easy to talk to. I have always wanted to play an instrument so I decided to take trumpet lessons. I am very happy Michael and I crossed paths. I work full time and he is very flexible with my schedule. He has coached me not only on how to play, but how to care for my trumpet- today my lesson included how to clean it. I am in awe with the how many instruments he can play. This is also fun for me because after just a few lessons, we are playing duets together! I am also excited that after a short period of time, I am actually reading music. Overall an amazing teacher that I would recommend for any instrument because of his vast knowledge in music!
Jim T. New York, NY

There is nothing quite like the power of playing a brass instrument. I am a French Horn Player, but the process of helping students develop tone control, embouchure flexibility, pitch accuracy, breath support, technical facility, and a rich understanding of the standard repertoire cuts across each of the brass instruments. I have been teaching brass players privately and in the ensemble setting since 2000 and prize the opportunity to build my students' all-around musical confidence.

Jim is not only creative in his own work, but also incredibly inspiring. As a young composer who worked with him for almost two years, I can personally say Jim is as great a teacher as he is a composer. He can work with any type of music and is always energetic in his approach to teaching. He also integrates theory into his lessons and works to help you grow both as a composer and musician. My compositions developed and grew in my time with Jim as I'm sure anyone else's will as well. I would absolutely recommend Jim as a teacher and mentor.

Jim is very easy to work with. I have watched him work with students of all ages and he is very patient and nurturing. I've also hired him to write some original compositions for my school. Jim is very talented and his work is thorough and always on time. He will also schedule time to work with your students. Jim is very open to ideas and suggestions. If you are thinking about learning about composition or improving your writing Jim is the composer for you!
