Private Trombone Teacher

Professional experience performing on trombone alongside other trombone luminaries (eg. Wayne Wallace from Patois Records) dating back to 2013, and in instructing students as young as 11.

Within the first few lessons, you'll know to play with a full and beautiful sound, and as time goes on you'll be able to get around the instrument with confidence. I specialize in jazz (both big band and playing with a combo), and typically use the Arbans book or adaptations from Flexus to advance your progress.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Matthew

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music. Upon arriving

As a teacher I tailor my lessons to meet your musical goals to help you enjoy playing your instrument more easily. You can improve your audition material for all-state or regional ensembles or achieve a better chair placement audition at school. I have taught all ages and skill levels - beginners, high school students, students planning to major in music, college music majors, and adult hobbyists. I will help you learn how to play with greater rhythmic accuracy, improved intonation, increase your range, and to improve your tone quality. I look forward to getting started with you!

Liz is a fantastic teacher and musician. Her wealth of teaching experience was evident right away in my lesson I had with her because she knew just what to say and exactly what pointers to give me when we were working on my solo. I love Liz!!
Luis
Dr. Mandel is very knowledgeable in trombone playing and really helped me get better. My technique has really improved and really helped my playing at school. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve and learn from someone who cares about their students.
Michael
I know Dr. Liz Mandel to be a consummate professional when it comes to teaching and performance of classical trombone. She is constantly keeping up to date with the latest pedagogy and practices, and she can adapt her teaching style to a wide variety of students' learning styles. On top of that, I know Dr. Mandel to be caring and understanding in a way that benefits her students and gets the most out of them.

I love teaching music. I think it should be fun and exciting to improve on an instrument. I meet the student where they are at with their ability and work up from there. I find as many different approaches to help students learn new playing techniques or refining ones they may already know. I want to help others be successful in their musical endeavors.

Online Trombone Teacher

I have over twenty years' experience teaching private lessons on trombone (alto, tenor, and bass), euphonium, and tuba. I perform regularly with symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles, and popular groups in my area, and have performed, conducted, and lectured at the International Trombone Festival, the International Tuba-Euphonium Conference, and other major venues. While most of my teaching is at the university level, I also work regularly with students both younger and older than that. My high school students are frequently successful in auditions for all-state ensembles, college scholarships, and competitions. My focus in lessons is to help each student to develop sound fundamental playing skills and then teach students how to apply those to realizing musical goals.

"Jeremy took the time to get to know my son's skill level and knowledge level. He related what he was teaching to other activities important to my child. My son learned more in his first lesson with Jeremy than in a year of private face to face lessons at school. Most importantly, when the lesson was finished, my son wanted to keep playing and playing because he was so excited about what he learned."
