Private Tuba Teacher

I am an extremely patient instructor that emphasizes attention to detail. I teach elementary school music normally so I’m used to focusing on and mastering the basic concepts. I have taught private lessons for trombone, euphonium, tuba, Horn, trumpet, and saxophone for the past five years. I believe that my large variety of teaching experience allows me to adapt my style to fit any needs that a student may have.

About Kevin

I’ve done jazz, classical, orchestral, small ensembles, choirs, and much more. I describe both my playing and teaching style as flexible and m

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.

Learn to play tuba as a beginner or fine tune your techniques as a more advanced player! My lessons include lots of playing for the students as well as a lot of examples from me (on trombone or piano). I also believe that "playing" the instrument is very important and making music should be as fun as possible, so I encourage students to play music that they enjoy. Each lesson will be individualized for each student as well.

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

I've played with bands of all shapes and sizes, including Symphonic, Marching, Jazz, Roc

First lesson online with Steven. My 13 yo son was positive about his experience. They took the time to talk trombone & listen to Other artists trombone music. This approach was a natural and appropriate hook em’ for my son. Looking forward to the hands on playing and making music together in subsequent lessons.

"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."
