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 S
ymphonie 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.

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.

Dr. Joseph Merkel improved my sound with some adjustments on my first lesson! He has such a profound understanding of how to work with one's individual instrument. I look forward to continuing lessons with Dr. Merkel and advancing my vocal abilities for my professional aspirations.

Christopher P.

Brooklyn, NY

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.

About Christopher

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 an
d 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 their musical journey. Now that I live in New York I wish to continue to share my knowledge and passion with any student who hungers for music!

John is one of the most gifted musicians I know. His ability to see music as an extension of his soul sets him apart from the herd. John helped with my breathing so I can last longer. I would recommend anyone to meet with john and take a lesson on anything musical. Love this guy!!!

John is extremely versatile and talented, and his love for music is so obvious and inspiring. I went to him with what I thought was a solid foundation of knowledge but he brought so many new ideas to the table that I started thinking of music in a whole new-and positive- way. He is very personable and easy to work with, and he treats you with respect and focused attention to detail. Definitely try working with him, you won't regret it!
