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.

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.
Stu
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.

Paul D.
Chris is a fantastic instructor! 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!
Leanne
Chris has been great with my middle school band student teaching/coaching the fundamentals and making trumpet fun again. My kiddo looked forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys band again! His confidence level while playing has soared. Definitely recommend.
Keira F.
Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.

"My son was very nervous about his first online lesson. His instructor had him start right in on the lesson, which helped my son quickly get over his nerves. By the end of the lesson, he was all smiles and feeling very confident about his ability to play a very hard piece for his solo contest. He is looking forward to his next lesson."

"My sons (one a beginner on trombone, one who already played tuba proficiently) began lessons with Mr. Smith during the shutdown last spring when we weren’t able to take in-person local lessons. They have really enjoyed learning from someone whose specialty is brass and have been motivated to practice on their own. Highly recommend!"

"My brother took lessons from Mr. Talley before me, and when I got into Band I started too.  Thanks to Mr. Talley I  made 1st chair in the Region Band twice on Tuba.  When I switched to Euphonium in high school, he was right there helping me with the change from Tuba.  I made the Region Band again on a new instrument only a few weeks after I switched, and he was the reason why.  He always seemed to know exactly what I needed to do to get better.  Even now, years later, I can still call him any time and ask him about music and he always helps me."
