I am a professional orchestral trombonist and I have been an active brass teacher for almost twenty years. I have played in orchestras across the USA and Europe, including the Cincinnati Symphony, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and many more.

I aim to give my students a solid understanding of the technical skills required to play a brass instrument, and to share with them the musical knowledge I have gained from studying with some of the best brass teachers in the world.

Chris will demonstrate with his trumpet how a piece should be played. He advises on breathing and other techniques. He’s encouraging and uses constructive criticism. I look forward each week to my lessons with Chris.
Michael
Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!
Rhys B.
My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found him!

Private Tuba 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.

Great teacher. Very knowledgeable.

Taking lessons with Dr. E has significantly improved both my skill with my instrument as well as my approach to music as a whole. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for low brass lessons.
Cory
Dr. Everett is a master musician who is able to articulate his skills and techniques effectively. We have two young musicians (high school) who have greatly benefited directly from Dr. Everett's private lessons as well as from personal instruction from (2) former students. Dr. Everett gets results!

Pasquale does what great teachers do - he meets the student at the student's level. I'm 64 and have been an advanced beginner my whole life. Pasquale has given me reason to think I will become a real trumpet player in the not too distant future.

He makes it real clear that I have to do the work but he is providing a very solid path to follow.

I strongly recommend as a terrific teacher.
Camden
My 14 yr old son just switched from trumpet to tuba and started tuba lessons with Mr. Gallo today. Mr. Gallo seems very knowledgeable not only about teaching tuba, but also about trumpet and other brass instruments so he knows how to help my son transition from one instrument to the other in the best way. It was a great first lesson, looking forward to more.
Lenny M.
Very knowledgeable. Pasquale gently urged me to consider doing some “work” which is to say the very exercises I have avoided for most of my life. Sometimes you just need a good coach. My first impression is that Pasquale might be that coach.

I enjoyed the lesson.

Brian is very passionate about music, and teaches with details. Lessons are organized and informational. Highly recommend!
Cliff
We hired Brian to work with our barely 3 year old to play the drums we got him for his birthday. He loves it! We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun. Brian is GREAT with him and he looks forward to it every week. 10/10!

"Brian is the reason I began to take tuba seriously and I am 100% certain that I wouldn’t be half the musician I am today if it weren’t for him. I took tuba lessons from in high school and he was great at challenging and pushing to get better and better every single lesson we had. I strongly recommend anyone who has the chance to study with him to please take it."

They have really enjoyed learning from someone whose specialty is brass and have been motivated to practice on their own. Highly recommend!"
