Private Trombone Teacher

I have over 10 years experience as a performer in orchestras, musical pits and chamber groups, and four years teaching trombone and euphonium extensively, at all levels. I have had students be accepted into California All-State bands, university music programs and Interlochen Summer Arts Academy.

In trombone lessons with me, you will learn how to approach playing your instrument in the simplest way possible, with great musical maturity. We will work on a variety of lyrical and technical etudes, as well as your fundamentals and daily routine. I will encourage you to perform and audition in things like all-state, summer music festivals, solo & ensemble festival, and I will guide you to preparing a great performance in any of these challenges.

Learn how to play / improve your playing on Trombone or Baritone. Learn the language of music. Become a great reader and improvisor!
I cover all the basics of playing: breathing, technique, rhythm, style, improvisation, etc. We can also learn some music history and theory, and play duets.
I teach all ages, and I tailor my teaching to each individual student. With over 30 years playing and teaching the brass instruments, I make lessons educational, productive and fun.

I enjoy nurturing musical creativity in my
students.

It is Rapturous for me when a student realizes
their own musicality by going past just
playing the notes on the page, to actively
expressing the Message (which could be a
Thought, Emotion, or a Scene) that is
inherent in the piece.

In a Low Brass lesson, I have the student play:
-A quick and effective warm-up with me.
-A quick review of their assigned
technical exercises.
-Their assigned Etude or Chart or Solo.
-A Duet with Me.

Technical aspects of Performance:
1. A mastery of ability to Sight Sing.
2. Clean Articulation.
3. A wide (and well-sounding) Range.
4. Moving between partials is Flexible.
5. A beautiful Tone.

I wish for my students to become more than
just good instrumentalists, I want for them
to always have fun with music. When a
student realizes that music can ultimately be
Emotional and Creative Outlet for them,
they will be Musicians for life!

About Scott

I am a Bass Trombonist, but teach all brass instruments. I have been teaching for 20 years. I help my students build their Tone, Technique and Articulation by teaching a simple Warm-Up routine. I have written an 8-page eBook entitled "Optimal Brass Playing" that describes ten areas of best practi

Mr. Scott really is a nice person to meet. For my first voice lessons, He helped me identify what range I was comfortable with and introduced a few of his works that opened my perspective on reading music. He knows how to teach his material if you specify what exactly you want to accomplish.
Mike
Scott is someone who expertly emphasizes both the fundamentals of trombone playing and musicianship. I have had the opportunity to read his melodious etudes arrangements with him and his arrangements are expertly crafted to force the performers to work on listening, phrasing, intonation and sound quality all in one fell swoop. Scott's attitude is very warm and not condescending in the slightest. He is very positive while always encouraging the player to grow. If you are a low brass player who wants a deeper understanding on the intricacies of low brass performance and overall musicianship, you should absolutely give Scott a try.

He’s very patient and kind especially for 2 active little girls.
Cindy T.
Thomas is honestly an amazing musician and teacher. He was really patient with me. Despite having to deal with major timezone differences (as I live in Myanmar), he took the time to figure it out. Also, he helped me figure out the stuff it took me months to figure out. He also really knows what he's doing. I learned so much in that hour of practice. 10/10 would recommend him.

Our son thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and he made a point to ask questions when he wasn't clear on instruction. I could tell this music composition was very complex (for his age) and Doug patiently worked through the questions and made really helpful recommendations.

Not only did he work with our son to teach him the basics (as someone new to an instrument having never played before), he also motivated him and took a genuine interest in his progress. He does a fantastic job and is a skilled instructor!... and did it all on-line due to COVID and overcame that obstacle too!"
