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.

About Eric

I am a professional musician who enjoys helping young people reach their musical goals. I perform regularly as a solo act and play with a band at various hotels in Chicago. I went to Millikin University in Decatur for music where I toured the country and played and sang in the top ensembles. I also studied at the Music Industry Workshop in Chicago for music production and engineering. My goal is to help you learn the songs you love and show you how to make the technical side of music more fun than you ever imagined!

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a laid back atmosphere that is v
ery productive. I use a custom curriculum that is catered to the needs and desires of the individual. Whether you would like to be a concert pianist, a jazzy horn player, or someone who wants to rock out to your favorite tunes, I have resources and experience to help you reach your goal. After three months you can expect to competently play a couple great songs and have greater fluidity and technique on your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in a recording studio which includes music stands, keyboards, piano, amps, acoustic guitar, and seating available. Parking on the street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need the instrument of their study and their purchased study materials. If the student is taking piano, they will need an 88 key weighted keyboard or a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, but can teach classical, pop, rock, funk, blues, salsa, bossa nova etc.

Eric was just the person we were looking for to help my 13 yr old son to get started again with lessons. He connected with my son. They also connected because my son is an athlete and Eric can relate because of his background.

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.

Edward Y.

Chicago, IL

About Edward

I've been teaching music privately, in camps, and in a classroom setting for over ten years.

Guitar, Songwriting, Beginner Piano, Music Theory, and Trombone are what I play and teach.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that incorporating a balance of music theory and ear-training right from the beginning of instruction is important to give a student the tools to improve and achieve their goals. I also believe that many teachers forget how much fun music is and should be.

Ed has given my son more confidence...

Ed has been working with my son for 1 1/2 years and my son has shown great improvement and confidence in his trombone playing. Ed is very patient and encouraging in his teaching style but I often hear them laughing which I feel enhances any learning experience.

Great Teacher!

I employed Ed at a Summer Music Camp, with children ages 6-16. Ed is an energetic, talented, engaged teacher, passionate about inspiring kids about music. Ed really connects with the students, and his excitement and energy is visible and contagious. I would definitely recommend Ed as a music instructor, who teaches well and motivates students to practice and enjoy their instrument!

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.
