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 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. *** Studio Equipment *** Acoustic Guitar -Electric Guitar -Amplifiers -Microphone -Trombone -Keyboard *** Travel Equipment *** Acoustic guitar -Electric guitar -Trombone

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!

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.

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.
