Learn how to play / improve your playing on Tuba.
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.

Private Tuba Teacher

I have over twenty years' experience teaching private lessons on trombone (alto, tenor, and bass), euphonium, and tuba. I perform regularly with symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, and popular groups in my area, and have performed, conducted, and lectured at the International Trombone Festival, the International Tuba-Euphonium Conference, and other major venues. While most of my teaching is at the university level, I also work regularly with students both younger and older than that. My high school students are frequently successful in auditions for all-state ensembles, college scholarships, and competitions. My focus in lessons is to help each student to develop sound fundamental playing skills and then teach students how to apply those to realizing musical goals.

Great teacher. Very knowledgeable.
Ethan
Taking lessons with Dr. E has significantly improved both my skill with my instrument as well as my approach to music as a whole. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for low brass lessons.
Cory
Dr. Everett is a master musician who is able to articulate his skills and techniques effectively. We have two young musicians (high school) who have greatly benefited directly from Dr. Everett's private lessons as well as from personal instruction from (2) former students. Dr. Everett gets results!

I aim to give my students a solid understanding of the technical skills required to play a brass instrument, and to share with them the musical knowledge I have gained from studying with some of the best brass teachers in the world.

Super thorough and very encouraging! I always learn a lot at each lesson and feel great about my progress. David meets me where I'm at and at my pace and is always moving me forward at every lesson. Can't recommend him enough!
Amanda
Due to COVID, my son was unable to start traditional in person trumpet lessons. We decided to try virtual lessons to get him started and it's been one of the best decisions we've made! David is knowledgeable on music theory and takes the time to make sure our son understands concepts such as rhythm & pitch. We've seen a great deal of improvement over the past year.

Private Tuba Teacher

As a horn player by trade, I am uniquely qualified to prepare young Tuba players to become leaders in any band. Horn players can play low brass parts and high brass parts. That enables me to offer young Tuba players a unique perspective on Tuba playing. As a band director, I rely heavily on my Tuba section to be the foundation of my band.

Mr. Greer did a fantastic job teaching my daughter Clarinet. He is very professional and she got a perfect score on all of her NYSSMA solos that she worked on with him. I highly recommend Mr. Greer for private lessons.

Worked with my daughter and she really enjoyed the lesson. She asked me if she could continue to take lessons with Christopher. He seemed to be able to easily have her gain confidence.

He is an amazing teacher. He helped me tremendously with my embouchure issues and my sound. His friendly style and energy really motivated me to practice more. Can't wait to get back to school and audition for first chair in band.

Private Tuba Teacher

I plan my lessons and create my own materials to fit each student's specific needs and goals. While learning an instrument is a worthy endeavor on its own, I also work with my students to hone important life and study skills that they can also apply to other aspects of their lives and education - not to mention having fun making music! Confidence, problem solving, and setting and working towards goals are just some of the skills I work to impart on my students.

"My son started with Mr. Gallo at the beginning of summer and we have decided to continue into the school year. He can easily read each students musical ability and creates a lesson plan accordingly. His critiques, while kindly, are thorough as he strives to get the best out of students.
My son enjoys the lessons and has improved in sound quality and technique. Web based lessons have worked out great for us as my son plays the tuba. Mr. Gallo has been flexible with the schedule which we appreciate. We highly recommend Mr. Gallo and the Take Lessons website/platform."
