Alaina A. New York, NY

About Alaina

I currently play trombone with the West Point Concert Band and am also an active freelance trombonist and euphoniumist in the New York, tri-state area. On any given day I could be performing various genres of music including orchestral, jazz, chamber, rock, funk and hip-hop/R&B. My career has led me to perform with various ensembles in prestigious halls around the country such as Carnegie Hall, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. Working as a musician has also given me the opportunity to travel the world as a performer. Most recently I went on tour throughout China with the Manhattan Symphonie this past December. In addition to my career as a performer, I am an active educator. I teach private lessons as well as conducting master classes for groups in schools. In the past past

I had never held a trombone in my hands before I started taking lessons with Alaina, but just after 3 one-hour lessons I can already play some simple tunes, which makes me very happy.

Alaina is very humble, sweet and, what's most important - very clear with instructions.

I highly recommend her as a teacher.

About David

I have studied music since I was seven years old, and I have a real passion for sharing music with others. I have 2 bachelors degrees in music, (one in music education, one in performance) from Brooklyn College, and a masters degree from Manhattan School of Music. I perform regularly around the world, and I use my real world experience to hone in on what you need to accomplish your musical goals. I have spent substantial time in New York City Public School music classrooms assisting and teaching with fellow instructors, and my private students have gained awards and admission to regional and state honor groups.

David Jamie felt you were good and funny. I knew there would be an issue. She just doesn't want to work hard. Thanks for your time.

I have had three classes so far with David, but already from the first class I knew he was supreme! He is an excellent teacher and an excellent musician. What keeps impressing me is his ability in understanding exactly what I am doing wrong while I play just by hearing the sound of the trumpet. Super!
Mark M. Long Island City, NY

About Mark

My name is Mark and I would like to thank you for considering me as a potential instructor. While living and working in New York City, I have been able to perform, tour, and record with a variety of ensembles from salsa bands to musical theater productions. A full biography and resume can be found at smarkmorgan.com *** Lesson Details *** I believe that students who are serious about studying music and becoming better musicians should be equipped with the necessary tools needed to succeed in this demanding field. Each student should be trained in a variety of musical styles in order to become a well-rounded, versatile musician. *** Travel Equipment *** I will provide materials such as books to work out of but it is up to the student to purchase those books or have a means of

Jim T. New York, NY

There is nothing quite like the power of playing a brass instrument. I am a French Horn Player, but the process of helping students develop tone control, embouchure flexibility, pitch accuracy, breath support, technical facility, and a rich understanding of the standard repertoire cuts across each of the brass instruments. I have been teaching brass players privately and in the ensemble setting since 2000 and prize the opportunity to build my students' all-around musical confidence.

Jim is not only creative in his own work, but also incredibly inspiring. As a young composer who worked with him for almost two years, I can personally say Jim is as great a teacher as he is a composer. He can work with any type of music and is always energetic in his approach to teaching. He also integrates theory into his lessons and works to help you grow both as a composer and musician. My compositions developed and grew in my time with Jim as I'm sure anyone else's will as well. I would absolutely recommend Jim as a teacher and mentor.

Jim is very easy to work with. I have watched him work with students of all ages and he is very patient and nurturing. I've also hired him to write some original compositions for my school. Jim is very talented and his work is thorough and always on time. He will also schedule time to work with your students. Jim is very open to ideas and suggestions. If you are thinking about learning about composition or improving your writing Jim is the composer for you!

Christopher P. Brooklyn, NY

While teaching at KP High I had a few students who wished to double on tuba or euphonium like myself. Tuba is a very important instrument as it makes up the foundation of any wind ensemble, orchestra, or dixie land band.
Just like my trombone lessons, we will focus on developing areas such as sound quality, range, technique, reading, improvisation, and playing in different genres.
Whether music is your student's thing or they just want to expand their horizons and get involved, I believe it can be for anyone with the right mindset.

About Christopher

My name is Chris P. and I am a graduate from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's in Film Scoring. I have been playing trombone for 13 years, tuba for 7, and have been composing and arranging music since my early high school years. I have had the privilege of playing with and writing for many different artists and ensembles with genres from classical and jazz to funk and salsa.

Some of my former students have entered into competitions and won awards/chairs due to their efforts and understanding of the techniques and skills I have taught them. There are few feelings as rewarding as hearing one's student develop and progress through ...
