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.

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.

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

In trombone lessons with me, you will learn how to approach playing your instrument in the simplest way possible, with great musical maturity. We will work on a variety of lyrical and technical etudes, as well as your fundamentals and daily routine. I will encourage you to perform and audition in things like all-state, summer music festivals, solo & ensemble festival, and I will guide you to preparing a great performance in any of these challenges.

Private Trombone Teacher

As a trombonist, I have been playing my instrument for the past 16 years, as well as tuba, bass trombone and euphonium. I have had the opportunities to perform across the country and world with prestigious groups. Not only that, but have also been in the realms of music education, where I have been teaching music of all ages for the last 7 years. I taught privately in both New Mexico and Texas, and I have also been a band director teaching in Texas. I believe that every student has the potential to grow with the correct guidance and a great teacher-student relationship. If you are choosing to making music a hobby, that is okay, because these lessons will also build your life skill, such as responsibility, independence, and leadership. Those choosing to make music as a career, I will guide you to taking the correct path and aim to achieve your goals.

Private Trombone Teacher

Hello and welcome to my studio!

***I will begin teaching online AND in-person starting in July!!!

In my studio, all Trombone players feel welcomed and I will do my best to keep you/your child happy and having fun while taking lessons :)

Your first lesson begins with breathing exercises as we need ALOT of air to play Trombone. Proper posture, embouchure for playing, and making a nice sound will come next. I have several method books depending on your experience, but if you already have a book we can use yours. We will also work on the more detailed aspects of Trombone such as articulations and range (yay high notes!), while learning new songs!

I'm glad you have decided to take Trombone lessons and look forward to helping you make great music! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

My Studio Equipment Provided:
- Music Stand
- Chair

My Travel Equipment Provided:
- Students must have all appropriate supplies at lessons

"I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books."
