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 studied music since I was seven years old, and I have a real passion for sharing music with others. I have 2 bachelors degrees in music, (one in music education, one in performance) from Brooklyn College, and a masters degree from Manhattan School of Music. I perform regularly around the world, and I use my real world experience to hone in on what you need to accomplish your musical goals. I have spent substantial time in New York City Public School music classrooms assisting and teaching with fellow instructors, and my private students have gained awards and admission to regional and state honor groups.
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.

While teaching at KP High I had a few students who wished to double on tuba or euphonium like myself. Tuba is a very important instrument as it makes up the foundation of any wind ensemble, orchestra, or dixie land band.
Just like my trombone lessons, we will focus on developing areas such as sound quality, range, technique, reading, improvisation, and playing in different genres.
Whether music is your student's thing or they just want to expand their horizons and get involved, I believe it can be for anyone with the right mindset.
My name is Chris P. and I am a graduate from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's in Film Scoring. I have been playing trombone for 13 years, tuba for 7, and have been composing and arranging music since my early high school years. I have had the privilege of playing with and writing for many different artists and ensembles with genres from classical and jazz to funk and salsa. In October 2012 I began teaching trombone/low brass and music theory at the King Philip Regional High School in Wrentham MA to students grades 4-12. Some of my former students have entered into competitions and won awards/chairs due to their efforts and understanding of the techniques and skills I have taught them. There are few feelings as rewarding as hearing one's student develop and progress through ...
