Chris taught one lesson to my son, then he cancelled the following week's lesson and never returned numerous phone calls, emails, and text messages. He didn't respond, then the following week at our next scheduled instruction he called me 30 mins before the lesson asking if he could move the date.

Needless to say, it was very unprofessional of him, and we intended to end our relationship with him as my son's instructor.

The thing got worse when he proceeded to schedule my son for a weekly reoccurring lesson for the next year. I've had to manually cancel each lesson, at least until Jan 2015.

I would strongly warn you against signing up with Chris if you expect an instructor who is reliable and responsive to your communications. I'm sorry it didn't work out, but the other problem is that this was my son's first experience to music lessons, so it was a bad first experience.

We're giving 3 out of 5 stars since that seems fair. With regards to the lessons themselves, Chris certainly met our expectations with our son's violin lessons. However, with regards to communications and scheduling, it could have been much better. More than once my son was waiting on Skype after receiving the "You have upcoming lessons" email from TakeLessons. Chris needs to learn how to cancel the lessons ahead of time. He rarely responded to emails (was trying to get him to stop showing our email openly to all his other students, really needs to learn how to use BCC). He never returned phone calls. Due to the canceled lessons, our TakeLesson pay date came prematurely, and since I waited until our son's paid lessons were completed before paying for new ones, we got dropped from the schedule and lost our time slot. Too many frustrations led to finding a new teacher.

I have ten years' experience teaching all brass instruments. Emphasis on tone production while covering other aspects from learning the notes to creating beautiful musical phrases.

About David
I am an experienced music teacher with over 20 years’ playing and performance experience. My specialties are in trumpet and electric bass, with additional experience teaching all brass instruments and beginning guitar. Many of my students are not only successful in their bands but in regional honor bands and Solo and Ensemble competitions as well.

I believe in tailoring each lesson to each student's individual abilities and learning methods. For students in school bands, I try to provide lessons that augment and complement what they learn in band class, focusing on areas of performance that may not receive attention in a group setting. For all my students, regardless of level or instrument, I help them learn music that they want to learn, while making sure they get the fundamental training that they need. I encourage and assist my stud
ents in finding opportunities to perform in solo performances and with other groups. I also pride myself in creating an environment where the students are comfortable asking questions to help improve their playing.

Contact me for lessons today to enhance your playing.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my lessons are very personalized based on the student's interests, strengths, and weakness. For all my students, I try to find music for them to play that they are interested in learning while still covering the everything they need to get a solid foundation on their instrument. For my brass players, I place a huge emphasis on tone quality and production.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Eclipse and King trumpets
Benge trombone
Music Man, Fender, and Delta basses
GK, Ampeg, and SWR bass amps

In the first few lessons beginner students will work on breathing techniques to focus on producing a clear sound. Breathing is something we all do every day, but breathing for brass playing is a skill to work on from day one for as long as you play your instrument! Buzzing and reading music will be layered together to start making music.

About Justin
Hello there! I'm very excited to offer trombone, trumpet, tuba, and piano lessons to students of any age in the northern New Jersey area.

I studied music at the College of New Jersey and have orchestral, wind ensemble, brass quintet, pit orchestra, jazz, and drum and bugle corps performance experience. I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts in Teaching Music at Montclair State University.

While I don't have firsthand knowledge of Justin's trombone teaching skills, I am quite familiar with his talent for and love of teaching through my work with him as an organizer and a trainer ever since we met in 2010. Justin is great at interacting with people of all backgrounds and ages, and has utmost patience for absolute beginners. Justin's method of teaching is learner-centered and successfully balances being supportive while also challenging. Also, he'll make you laugh while you learn!

I do not own a tuba but have a mouthpiece and am very experienced with one. In our lessons we will develop proper form in terms of posture as well as breathing. We will work out many of the technical aspects of the tuba from sound to valve work as well as tuning. Students will be exposed to intense classical repertoire based on level as well as introduction to tuba in the brass band style for versatility as a musician.

About Abdulrahman
Beginning his studies of the trombone in middle school, Abdulrahman has been on a journey only the trombone can bring you on. His first introductions to music were purely classical, and with the guidance of his first mentor, Met Trombonist Weston Sprott, he was able to graduate from the Juilliard Map program into the Juilliard Pre-College program. Abdulrahman continued
his studies at Juilliard for one last year, studying with Met trombonist Damian Austin, and started taking a new direction with the trombone. As a sophomore at La Guardia high school for the arts and performing arts, Abdulrahman took his first swim in the pool of Jazz under the direction of Kevin Blancq, the current jazz director at La Guardia. Being exposed to artists such as Urbie Green and Bob Brookmeyer began to drive Abdulrahman Amer into a new world known as the worl
d of improvisation. Self-taught, he was driven by friends to learn standards and allow his true artistry to come out in the medium of sound.

As a senior in high school, he attended the Manhattan School of music Pre-College on a full scholarship. Through new motivations, Abdulrahman is now an alumnus of the 2015 Grammy Band and Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, which added a new color to his senior experience. He now attends the Manhattan School of Music on a full scholarship as part of the class of 2019. Abdulrahman was named a 2016 jazz finalist in Youngarts, is currently an alumnus of the Banff Jazz Workshop for creative music as well as the Betty Carter Jazz ahead workshop, and is now on a path to harness his craft and spread love and peace around the world. He is now a new member of the GRAMMY winning band "Arturo O' Farill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra" and is the youngest in the band. Abdulrahman has played at numerous festivals and venues including the Jazz Standard, Smalls Jazz Club, Smoke Jazz Club, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Metropolitan room, Shapeshifter Lab, An Die Musik, Monterey Jazz Festival, Montclair Jazz Festival, as well as the Detroit Jazz Festival. Abdulrahman has also shared the stage with many notable artists and bands including Jazzmeia Horn, Tyshawn Sorey, Frank Lacy, The Mingus Big Band, Conscious Collective, Dave Koz, Ted Nash, and even Wynton Marsalis. Now leading his own band, Abdulrahman will allow his art and the trombone to guide his path.

I have helped many tuba students place in All-State ensembles, compete for seating placements, and earn top marks in solo and ensemble competitions.

About Caleb
I am excited to start offering my teaching services on trombone, euphonium and the rest of the instruments from the brass family here at takelessons.com.

I have played with notable groups such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and am a former member of renowned Axiom Brass Quintet. I studied with Jay Friedman and other members of the Chicago Symphony at Roosevelt University for five years. My teaching philosophy falls into the Arnold Jacobs Song and Wind school of thought. I teach a lot of mouthpiece buzzing, and fundamental exercises to get my students playing with golden singing sounds!

Currently I am starting my second year in the DMA program at the University of Iowa where I am also a graduate teaching assistant in the trombone studio. In addition to the teaching I do at the University I am also a low brass teaching partner a
t West Music in Coralville.

Currently I am affiliated with two professional orchestras in the Eastern Iowa area. I am the second trombonist in Orchestra Iowa based out of Cedar Rapids, and will be filling in as an interim second trombone for the 2017-2018 Quad City Symphony season. I have been playing in professional orchestras for the last ten years and can teach you orchestral style, and audition preparation.

In addition to my orchestra playing, I was also a member of Axiom Brass Quintet from 2012-2014 where we were the first prize winners at the International brass competition held in Passau Germany.

As a soloist, I was also the grand prize winner of the Chicago International Brass solo competition in 2012 on euphonium.
Currently, I am also an active member with the New Chicago Brass, a modern brass ensemble based out of Chicago. I am comfortable teaching all brass instruments for all ages and skill levels. I look forward to answering any questions you may have in regard to taking lessons on a brass instrument.
