I have been teaching trombone for 22 years. I have received about 14 years in trombone and specialize in it. I have produced 3 CDs with my brass group, Cornerstone Brass. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle
Hello, my name is Doyle B. and I am eager to help you reach your goals! I've been teaching private lessons since 1992 and have loved helping my students win competitions at the state level, learn how to advance rapidly on their instrument, and fall in love with making music. I have 3 earned degrees from Pensacola Christian College (B.S. in Music Ed., 1992), Hobe Sound Bible College (A.A., 1993) and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Church Music, 1996). I have experience teaching all of the band instruments, violin, guitar, and piano. I'm an enthusiastic, upbeat person who greatly enjoys working with people of all ages. I am presently employed at Hobe Sound Bible College and Christian Academy. I presently have students in New Jersey, South Dakota, Florida, and Maryland, who I teach using Skype or FaceTime. Fortunately,
I have a couple openings in my schedule to teach any one who is serious about excelling on his/her instrument. I look forward to helping you reach your potential.

About PAUL
*UPDATED AVAILABILITY FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR*

Hi! My name is Paul. I graduated in 2016 from Arizona State University with my Master of Music in Performance. I am completing the final year of my D.M.A. program at Arizona State University.

I have almost a decade of teaching experience that ranges from private, one-on-one lessons to larger masterclasses. My private students have auditioned into numerous all-region and all-state ensembles.

My performance experience is quite varied. I was a tenured member of the Washington-Idaho Symphony on bass trombone for five years. I left to pursue my Masters degree from ASU. Other orchestral experience includes several Summer Pops concerts with the Great Falls Symphony, some featured artists such as Kansas and Charlie Daniels. I have spent several years playing in jazz bands, Jazz I from the Uni
versity of Idaho and Concert Jazz Band from ASU. In the spring of 2016, I performed with ASU's Concert Jazz Band at Highland Jazz Festival where we featured Wayne Bergeron and Andy Martin. Recent performances include Salt River Brass' " Made in America" program featuring trumpet soloist Rex Richardson, Phoenix Theatre's run of "Bullets Over Broadway," and performing with and conducting the Arizona State University Trombone Ensemble at the 2017 International Trombone Festival. In December 2017, I made my solo debut performing with Salt River Brass. I recently attended the 2018 Pokorny Seminar where I worked with numerous musicians including Tim Higgins (SFO), Jim Markey (BSO), Dr. Andrew Glendening (Host/RSO), and Gene Pokorny (CSO).

I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.

New York, NY

Hello! Through my four years at the Juilliard School I have taken lessons with some of the worlds most prominent trombonists, including Elliot Mason, Steve Turre and Joe Alessi. In addition, I have a vast experience of teaching both classical and jazz students. I've created my own general lesson plan comprised of exercises I have received from these world renown teachers, as well as from other working professionals in NY.

I'm very quick to notice your skill level and create a cohesive, unique lesson plan catered to working on your weaknesses and polishing your strengths! A mediocre teacher will simply give you default exercises to work on-- a task better left to google. A good teacher, however, can diagnose a student and find the most efficient way for he/she to improve.

I promise to be a caring, fun, informative teacher. Please contact me for more information about my lessons.

Teaching is my biggest passion, I can't wait to work with you!
Happy practicin'!

About Sam
Hello! I'm Sam and I'm a graduate of the Juilliard School. I'm a huge music nerd and teaching is one of my biggest passions. For eight years, I have been teaching students of various ages and backgrounds, compiling lesson plans designed to work with students at ALL LEVELS. As a prominent NYC based jazz trombonist/bandleader/composer, I am more than qualified to teach any student.
I have given numerous masterclasses, workshops, lessons and group lessons in everything from classical trombone technique to jazz history. I offer fun, cohesive lessons catered to your ability in the following subjects:

--Trombone (jazz and/or classical, beginning to advanced)

--Jazz Harmony (any instrument [bass, piano, drums, guitar, etc.] beginning to advanced)

--Music Theory and/or AP Music Theory prep (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Ear Training (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Arranging/Composition (any instrument, beginning to advanced

--Songwriting (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Piano lessons (beginning to intermediate)

*Since I charge the same rate for each of these subjects, many of my students request to split the lesson time into 2 or more subjects

If you have any questions about my specific lesson plans for a particular subject, please don't be afraid to shoot me an email!

Happy practicin'!

My skype lesson with Sam was one of the most insightful musical experiences I've had in regards to educating myself about the craft of trombone playing. Not only is his remarkable prowess at the instrument itself apparent but his knowledge of musical harmony and overall artistry allows all of his expert advice to come full circle and become even more impactful. His teaching style was incredibly supportive and effective and with clear and concise input I feel like I can very easily implement the information he gave me into my own playing. From the nuances of trombone technique to the intricacies of complex musical harmonies and progressions, Sam is more than capable of instructing students of all ages and skill levels. I would absolutely recommend Sam to anybody who wants to study music/trombone seriously or even is just getting started and wants to build a strong foundation. I can't wait until my next online lesson!

Sam is a fabulous trombone teacher and player! In our lessons, he is really good at assessing what I can and can’t do and then building lessons to address those skills. As a teacher, he is very fun and down-to-earth while also having high standards and being willing to challenge me.

15 years experience teaching and playing Bass and Tenor Trombone professionally. I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Trombone and Bass Trombone Performance from The Juilliard School and Northwestern University, respectively. My experience at these schools has exposed me to the very best teaching and playing in all the world of Low Brass, which is reflected in my own playing and teaching!
I am very passionate about performing and teaching, and especially about leading others to love music and the process of self-betterment, be that on the "horn" or anything in life! In our lessons I will seek to understand your motivations in studying low brass playing/music and tailor my instruction to best help you achieve your goals; be that to develop superior ability on the instrument, nail your all-state/college auditions, develop your overall musicianship, feed your passion for music and artistry, etc.
In short, my students can expect world-class instruction and pedagogy developed ...

About Andre
I am a professional Bass and Tenor trombonist and Low Brass clinician, teacher and pedagogue. I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelors of Music and Northwestern University with a Masters of Music in Trombone Performance. I am currently engaged in post-graduate studies at University of Denver's Lamont School of Music, earning an Artist Diploma.

As a working musican, I currently freelance in the Denver/Boulder area, regularly performing with the Colorado Symphony, Boulder Philharmonic, Opera Colorado, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, and other world-class ensembles. I have performed in venues all around the world, including Carnegie Hall in NYC, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I teach all low brass instruments (Tenor/Bass Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium) and students of all ages. Mu
ch of my own pedagogy and teaching method is developed from my years of study and exposure to some of the absolute best orchestral and jazz brass teachers and pedagogues of our time.

Students can expect to receive world-class instruction in the fundamentals of brass playing (sound production, embouchure development, tone quality, rock-solid time/rhythm, intonation, etc), as well as guidance toward the development of musicianship and artistry (phrasing, style, the concept of SINGING with your brass sound). Ultimately, I am a very diagnostic teacher. That is to say, my primary MO is to determine my students' motivations on their instrument, and to craft our lessons and my instruction to best guide them toward achieving their goals! If you are interested in playing low brass at the highest possible level, want to nail All-state/college/professional auditions, or just interested in playing for fun, or ANYTHING in between: I can help you achieve your goals!
