Students begin with the Rubank method. A strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of scales, ear training, sight reading, and music theory. Along with this we have fun playing the music student enjoys.
I've been playing the bass trombone for about 12 years, and have been teaching it for about 5. I was the TA for Tom Brantley at USF, and taught most of the undergraduate trombonists at some time or another through the 2013-2015 semesters. My goal when giving lessons is to create excitement for the instrument, inspire musical creativity, and inform students (in every experience level) what successful professional players do on a daily basis. My curriculum is set based on the individual player.
Although I play many brass instruments, my trombone spends the most time outside of it's case. My very first gig was on the trombone, at the age of 14 (14 years ago). I've developed a warm-up routine using a combination of well-know repertoire and fantastic online resources. Throughout the years I've acquired a large collection of study material. We can work on jazz heads out of the Real Book, orchestral excerpts or classical solos.
Basics such as buzzing for beginners then we start to pick up notes starting with the B flat scale:)
for more challenging lessons we will recap on all scales and fundamentals then start a portfolio
for advanced students we would recap on all fundamentals and portfolio needs then discuss the future of the music you may be playing so we can work on high grade pieces in the genre
