Gregory H.

Astoria, NY

One of the most enjoyable instruments to play when done correctly.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become
so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

Greg has been great and very patient with our son. He is only 5 and half and has a lot of energy, but he has been able to focus and is really enjoying it.

We could not ask for more in a teacher. Gregory helped our son prepare for NYC high school auditions this year and he was extremely professional, a very, very good teacher and overall just a very nice person to deal with. He gets our highest recommendation.

Bobby S.

Brooklyn, NY

The trombone is a colorful and exciting instrument played in many styles of music throughout the world, from jazz and classical to funk and soul to reggae, afro-beat, and Latin American music. In addition to covering the basic technical requirements of the instrument, I'm particularly interested in the many genres in which the trombone can be found, and I like to focus on the styles of music that most interest and challenge my students. I began playing soprano trombone over ten years ago, and I have taught tenor trombone privately and in public school programs for several years. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and brass calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility.

About Bobby

I am a jazz trumpeter, improviser, and composer as well as an avid listener and enthusiastic educator. I maintain an active performance schedule playing improvised music as well as funk, soul, afro-beat, reggae, hip-hop, and American folk music. In addition to trumpet, I have experience performing and recording on slide trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, and french horn. I write and arrange music for my own groups and regularly write and record horn arrangements for folk, pop, and reggae groups. I have attended Berklee College of Music and Ithaca College, and I have a Master's degree in jazz tr
umpet performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.

I have over nine years of experience working with students ages 7 to adult. I have worked both from my home studio and though several public and community music school programs including the Hudson Arts Alliance in Hudson, MA, the Kittredge Elementary School in North Andover, MA, and the Performing Arts Center of Metro West in Framingham, MA. I have studied jazz performance with trumpet greats John McNeil and Walter White, improvisation with jazz gurus David Schumacher and Jerry Bergonzi, and George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization with master composer and theorist Ben Schwendener.

As an educator, my aim is to inspire in my students an enthusiasm for the artistic performance of music of any style. I strive to convey my own excitement for the art to young trumpeters and improvisers, and I have worked to encourage self-motivation and a longstanding interest in musical self-expression in elementary through high school students and adults. I have experience performing many styles of music from jazz and experimental improvised music to funk, reggae, and afro-beat, and I use my knowledge of divergent genres to encourage creative experimentation and convey the expressive artistic elements shared by all music. As an improviser I am particularly interested in teaching the theory and philosophy of spontaneous composition and musical communication.

Bobby is a great teacher! During my time taking lessons, he always found a way to explain concepts in a manner that I could relate to. Coming from flute, I knew basic fundamentals of reading music and structure and Bobby took the time to make suggestions that were along the lines of my musical experiences and strengths. If you're looking to learn the trumpet, I'd definitely recommend Bobby because he's able to break down concepts and is very patient. If you've been playing trumpet for awhile and wish to get even better, I'd suggest taking lessons with him because Bobby definitely has the resume, experience and knowledge to help any trumpet player go further.

Bobby is personable, fun to chat with, smart, and an all around great teacher! Bobby can customize the lessons for your goals. I can't recommend Bobby enough if you're just starting out fresh or picking up an old talent like I am.

Abdulrahman A.

New York, NY

Major focus on the technical aspects of the instrument.
Major focus on understanding music.
Learning how to develop routines for individual growth.
Perfecting solo repertoire.
Developing stronger jazz improvisation.

About Abdulrahman

Hi! I am a trombone player fluent in both Jazz and Classical music. I have developed my foundation for the instrument by studying with principal trombonist of the Metropolitan opera, Weston Sprott, for 4 years. If we were to study (whether it was for trombone, tuba, or baritone students) we would work on building a solid technical foundation and start developing repertoire for auditions and for stimulating your growth. Jazz students I have will also spend time building technical foundation but will also be taught jazz starting from where there knowledge stands. I am strong in classical theory
and ear training as well from 6 years of intense study. Students of all ages welcome.
Me- I am currently at the Manhattan School of Music on a full scholarship studying jazz trombone as well as classical trombone. Music is a passion to me and I am willing to give to those who seek. I do not play games when it comes to bringing students to their highest level so be prepared for intense lessons.

Edgar G.

Allendale, NJ

With me, you will receive individualized instruction that focuses on developing core skills needed by every musician: Reading music, brass technique, musicality, improvisation, and repertoire. Lessons are fast-paced and detail-oriented. I am an advocate of slow, mindful practice and the idea of "tone first"

About Edgar

I have been helping people understand music since 2012. I have taught in public schools, universities, foreign schools, as well as privately. My students frequently achieve success in the composition field, winning competitions and attending festivals. I want to help you understand music by sharing my knowledge of orchestration, harmony, and counterpoint, as well as my professional experience.

My music is frequently performed around the world. The New York Times has called my music "immediately captivating," and the Denver Post, "exciting". My catalog includes many orchestral, vocal, c
hamber, and film works. I hold a MA in Composition and BM in Music Education from Rutgers University where I graduated with high honors. Learn more at www.edgarfgirtainiv.com
