Eric M. Villa Park, IL

I play the Flugabone as a main instrument, so I can teach flexibility on the trombone mouthpiece well. I picked up trombone technique along the way.

Eric has been great. He immediately found out where I was at in skill level and where I want to be. He then adds just enough knowledge to help me make the next step. I have learned a lot each lesson!

Adam H. Chicago, IL

Experienced trombone teacher of 3 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of trombone skills. I teach students to play great music, listen critically, and teach themselves. I emphasize fundamental skills and break down complex skills into the simplest components to reach a fluent level in the most efficient way.

About Adam

I am an experienced orchestral trombonist, currently a member of the Quad City, Green Bay, and Dubuque Symphony Orchestras. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in trombone performance and have been teaching junior high and high school students for over two years. Teaching proficiency include classical, jazz, band, orchestra, and chamber music.

Gabriel S. Chicago, IL

Students can expect to learn:
- to read music well and efficiently
- basic-advanced music theory as we progress
- fundamental concepts of music and the trombone
- a friendly, personable, yet efficient teaching style

About Gabriel

Hi there, My name is Gabe. I am currently finishing my bachelor of music degree at VanderCook College of Music. I have completed all required instrumental music education courses except for student teaching and a couple state mandated general education courses. During my time at VanderCook I have learned that as a music educator it is important to not just teach music to children, but to teach concepts and ideas that present children with the opportunity to get better on their instrument as well as become stronger thinkers and efficient decision makers. In your lessons with me you will learn the fundamental concepts behind playing the trombone and how to operate the instrument, as well as working through music assigned by me and music you want to work on.

William H. Chicago, IL

Lessons can be either traditional or non-tradition with an emphasis in free-improvisation. In the traditional approach each lesson would focus on repertoire and method and technique. In a free-improvisational approach, the student will learn extended techniques commonly associated with the avant-garde.

About William

Will H’s composition draws its inspiration from as divergent sources as American and European minimalism to gamelan and indie rock. Recent focus has been devoted to collaboration where he has enjoyed interdisciplinary work with choreographers, filmmakers, and playwrights. His music has been performed in the U.S., England, and Thailand by ensembles including the Fort Smith Symphony Orchestra and the JCFA Composer's Orchestra, along with readings by the JACK Quartet, the University of Arkansas Orchestra, the University of Iowa Kantorei, directed by Timothy Stalter, and the Center for New Music Ensemble, directed by David Gompper. As a performer, he has participated in ensembles devoted to new music including the JCFA Composer’s Orchestra, Ensemble 48, the Outside Orchestra based out of ...

Will was super knowledgeable and very patient with this beginner. In just a few lessons I already feel more confident in my own arranging skills. I look forward to working with him for a long time!
Dan M. Glen Ellyn, IL

Every level welcome. I am a professional in my field on trombone. I have found the most success with using "Accent on Achievement" for beginners. As students progress, more materials will be needed. "Arban's: Complete Method" and "Melodious Etudes for Trombone: by Rochut" are standard for advancing students in my curriculum.

Dan has taught for about 10 years and speaks with efficient feedback. His experiences playing in ensembles has made him an extremely strong musician. I would recommend him for any advanced brass lesson tutoring. He can relate to people of any age so younger students would benefit from his energetic nature as well.

I've been teaching trombone for ten years. I try to incorporate a variety of methods in my lessons including technique, sight-reading, musicality, improvisation, and so many more things to name a few. The lessons I teach are based on the strengths and weaknesses of my students. I provide lessons that unique to the individual student.
