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.

Linda was awesome, very patient with a total beginner with not only cello but also playing music. She is great teacher , i can tell that from our first lesson.
Steven
My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.

I have taught brass students for 25 years including trumpet, euphonium, trombone, french horn, and tuba. If you are starting or taking the next steps in your trombone playing I would love to help.

About Mike

I have had an exciting time learning the trumpet! Growing up I always enjoyed music and especially playing the trumpet, but I was always a mediocre and unreliable player. In between my junior and senior years of high school I went through the difficulty of an embouchure change. Though I struggled f

Alexis is an energetic, thoughtful and patient teacher. My 9-year-old son loves his weekly lessons with her. He is a beginner trombone student and is progressing at an amazing rate. Alexis is very encouraging and helps him to really stretch and grow each week. I would highly recommend Alexis as a teacher.

Hi there!

I've been playing the trombone for over 12 years, and bass trombone specifically for 3 years. I can also help you learn theory, ear training, sight reading, composition, or arranging! As a music educator, I've learned how to adapt my teaching to fit various learning styles and modalities. My lessons are tailored to you to fit your needs and help you grow as a musician. Specializing in beginning to intermediate students, but all ages are welcome. My joy as a teacher comes from seeing others improve, and I want to help all my students reach their musical potential. Let's get started!

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
