Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Online Tuba Teacher

I have been teaching for 10 years in private lessons, music camps, and music clinics in Michigan and the metro DC area. I so enjoy teaching brass students how to gain better control of their musical expression through honing skills in technique, emoting, and general music knowledge. I can assist in preparing for play tests, auditions, solo performances and overall gaining a better grasp of any literature or method material. More than that I love coming together to enjoy playing music and growing as players. I am in awe hearing musical voices develop and become more articulate in expressing how they see the world through music.
A bit about myself, I graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a bachelor’s degree in music. I also attended Eastern Michigan University for three years before transferring to Penn State where I finished my degree. I teach trumpet, trombone, and tuba for beginner and intermediate levels and euphonium (B.C. & T.C.) (baritone T.C., baritone B.C.) for all

Jeanette is an excellent teacher, and knows how to tailor the learning experience to let you get the most out of your time! I started learning baritone in order to participate in an event with my friends and Jeanette’s teaching really helped me move forward quickly so that I could gain enough skills to participate and then keep learning after. Not only were lessons highly professional and helpful, she is also a really fun teacher who made each lesson really enjoyable while keeping me on track. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
Mike
One of the most dedicated musicians I know. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing her play for years and I’m sure she can help any student reach their goals, regardless of what level they start at.
Chip
I have been playing euphonium for decades, and I still play in community bands. I recently worked with JJ, and she noticed a small detail in my embouchure that had never been noticed by previous teachers. She quickly corrected it in terms I could easily understand, and my high range has become much more consistent with better tone. It just goes to show, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I would definitely recommend her.

great first lesson :)
Azeem W.
Gallo does a great job of knowing how to assess your playing, and give clear and encouraging feedback on how to get better. He certainly taken my trumpet playing and teaching to the next level!
Emelye
Our son has been studying with Mr Gallo for several months, and he has been showing great improvements, in such a short amount of time, in both the school band and at home. Mr Gallo is kind, patient, and encouraging. Our son immediately felt comfortable with him, and looks forward to his lessons. Mr Gallo is accommodating and understanding if we ever need to reschedule. Even when we are eventually given the opportunity to begin in person lessons with a teacher whose is near our home, we would like to continue with Mr Gallo. We can’t imagine our son being taught by anyone else! We highly recommend him as a teacher, he is simply wonderful!

"At 40, I decided to pick up the tuba that I’d kept since playing in college. I wanted to get off to a solid start. I found in Bryan a solid teacher with a wealth of all sorts of musical knowledge. I implemented the lessons into practice and felt myself grow stronger in some areas than I had ever experienced in my first 10 years of practice and learning. I was also able to see a marked improvement in my bass guitar skills by applying many of the same concepts to the playing of that instrument. These lessons have been a great investment for my musicianship."

They have really enjoyed learning from someone whose specialty is brass and have been motivated to practice on their own. Highly recommend!"
