Just had my first lesson with him, and he was amazing! He's relatable and puts things through a perspective that you wouldn't have ever thought of. 10/10 recommend him, and if I could give more than five stars I would. And I plan on doing lessons with him all throughout high school.
Brandon
Brian is one of the teachers that sticks with you for the rest of your life. He cares about his students and is an excellent teacher. He started me on a journey that had me playing euphonium for years after he moved.
Hunter
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.

I enjoy nurturing musical creativity in my
students.

It is Rapturous for me when a student realizes
their own musicality by going past just
playing the notes on the page, to actively
expressing the Message (which could be a
Thought, Emotion, or a Scene) that is
inherent in the piece.

In a Low Brass lesson, I have the student play:
-A quick and effective warm-up with me.
-A quick review of their assigned
technical exercises.
-Their assigned Etude or Chart or Solo.
-A Duet with Me.

Technical aspects of Performance:
1. A mastery of ability to Sight Sing.
2. Clean Articulation.
3. A wide (and well-sounding) Range.
4. Moving between partials is Flexible.
5. A beautiful Tone.

I wish for my students to become more than
just good instrumentalists, I want for them
to always have fun with music. When a
student realizes that music can ultimately be
Emotional and Creative Outlet for them,
they will be Musicians for life!

About Scott

I am a Bass Trombonist, but teach all brass instruments. I have been teaching for 20 years. I help my students build their Tone, Technique and Articulation by teaching a simple Warm-Up routine. I have written an 8-page eBook entitled "Optimal Brass Playing" that describes ten areas of best practi

Mr. Scott really is a nice person to meet. For my first voice lessons, He helped me identify what range I was comfortable with and introduced a few of his works that opened my perspective on reading music. He knows how to teach his material if you specify what exactly you want to accomplish.
Mike
Scott is someone who expertly emphasizes both the fundamentals of trombone playing and musicianship. I have had the opportunity to read his melodious etudes arrangements with him and his arrangements are expertly crafted to force the performers to work on listening, phrasing, intonation and sound quality all in one fell swoop. Scott's attitude is very warm and not condescending in the slightest. He is very positive while always encouraging the player to grow. If you are a low brass player who wants a deeper understanding on the intricacies of low brass performance and overall musicianship, you should absolutely give Scott a try.

"I had Jeremy as a tuba instructor my last year of college. I was a bit skeptical since he looked so young, but after my first few lessons with him, I realized what a valuable teacher I had. He was very supportive, and instead of making me feel like a failure in my mistakes, gave me the instruction and tools necessary to succeed. I wish my time with him had been longer, but I loved the short time we did work together."

"Jeremy has been great in relating to my junior high age son playing tuba. Developing a rapport via online lessons was a natural progression for the YouTube generation. Jeremy was encouraging and helped develop and grow technical skills to move from last chair to first chair and promoted to next band in the next semester! The ease and flexibility in scheduling allows him to continue in his lessons through busy concert seasons. Looking forward to adding his younger brother to the lesson with Jeremy soon!"

"My son started with Mr. Gallo at the beginning of summer and we have decided to continue into the school year. He can easily read each students musical ability and creates a lesson plan accordingly. His critiques, while kindly, are thorough as he strives to get the best out of students.
My son enjoys the lessons and has improved in sound quality and technique. Web based lessons have worked out great for us as my son plays the tuba. Mr. Gallo has been flexible with the schedule which we appreciate. We highly recommend Mr. Gallo and the Take Lessons website/platform."
