As a teacher, I want to inspire passion. The trombone is my passion and I want to share it with you. Music is about creativity and expression and I want to help every one of my students experience this. I cater all my lessons to the student, but also want to help students establish a strong grasp of the fundamentals of music and the trombone. I hold a Master of Music in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone from the University of Miami, have worked in a variety of settings and styles, have been teaching for over 5 years, and can't wait to share my experiences with you!

I want to once again write a testimonial for Hayden Maple. Had is a gifted musician and instructor. He has worked at my pace, been accomodating during an illness and travel of mine. and he has understood my goals and tailored his teacher towards them. I encourage anyone seeking an instructor to give Hayden a shot.
David
Hayden is pleasant, well-informed and motivating. He is a good teacher and shares his tips on how to improve. I will be signing up for more lessons! I am actually making music with Hayden's help.
Raciel
Hayden is a great instructor very professional, dedicated, a truly pro in his craft. He is a versatile musician with an extensive, proven background in all sort of styles that definitely will help anyone interested in learning, advancing, and perfecting the skills required to play the trombone to reach their goals, no matter what level your are at the moment.
Let’s be real, if you really want to master or at least play decently well any instrument (the trombone in this case with all its technical challenges) you need a mentor and here we are lucky to have a young, professional, smart musician, with a strong, solid academic formation and a life dedicated to music, specialized in trombone to our entire disposition.
If you are trying to find an instructor to help you out with your musicianship, stop looking because you have already found him. I am sure that you, as I have, will exponentially progress with his help. Thank you Hayden.

These skills and understanding of music can be transferred to any instrument if they decide to switch, later on!

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.

In our lessons, we will work to build strong fundamental techniques on the trombone while incorporating music theory, sightreading, improvisation and aural skills. I prioritize student goals and the creation of a welcoming learning environment as we explore musical genres from classical to jazz to pop/rock. Whether you're a middle school band student or an adult returning to the trombone, we will work at your pace and have fun along the way. I currently teach at the Appleton Academy of Music and I am a senior at the Lawrence Conservatory of Music, where I study under Professor Tim Albright. I play in a number of groups both on and off campus, and I most enjoy sharing music with others.

After studying with Grant for a few months, his band teacher sent me an email about how quickly he is improving and he moved up from last chair to third chair. He is very approchable and my son loves him."

"More than one year after starting with my daughter, Alexis is more than an instructor, she is an important role model and guide. Every lesson is clearly a personal and customized experience based on my daughter's ever-improving skill level as well as her unique learning style and learning challenges. More than even learning specific skills, i seee my daughter learning HOW to learn in ways she hadn't been willing to try before because Alexis asked her to do so. This has been a fantastic learning and growth experience for us and we appreciate all the effort, both mentally and emotionally, that Alexis puts into each and every virtual-visit to our home."
