First lesson, I'm an older adult who has played for years but wanted to reboot and get back to basics and take it to the next level. William was insightful, enthusiastic, and informative. I'm looking forward to working with him!

I have studied with some of the finest trombonists in the world, performed in the nation's top orchestras, and am firmly committed to excellence in the trombone field. Music is one of the most indescribably powerful and moving things in the entire world, and I want students to, above all, simply enjoy playing and experiencing this gift. The trombone is, of course, merely a means to an end in this regard; yet its rich, powerful, as well as versatile sound is what particularly draws me to it. My approach to playing the trombone is simple: producing the greatest sound on every note, as easily as possible. I think it is necessary to have the best sound that you can possibly make on the trombone in your head from day one, and to this end, I strive to play as much as possible for and along with the student so that they may develop their own ideal sound concept. I couple this with instruction on all the other fundamentals of trombone playing and music making, such as technique, scales, ...

Grant has been an excellent instructor for my son who is just finishing his first year learning trombone. Grant is patient and really cares about his student’s progress. I feel my son is more engaged and enthusiastic about playing trombone under Grant’s tutorage. Highly recommend.

Hello Tom,
Thank you for your email. I would like to let you know that Ala is really interested in learning Piano. Last week, she had some difficulties with rhythm. We always encourage her to play the Piano and we say to her that it is ok, if sometimes she cannot play very well. So, we(especially Ala) really want to continue learning the Piano for a year.
She stated to practice Piano every day for 30 minutes! She only needs to be encouraged!
Thanks again!
Best,
Maryam

Tom is a great instructor! He is very patient and engaging during lessons. Tom also plays various brass instruments as accompaniment during the lesson to demonstrate how notes should sound. Overall, I think the personalized attention and support Tom provides helps support my son’s playing. My son says he enjoys his lessons because it's fun, and he feels that he is continually improving his technique and gaining more confidence in his trumpet playing.
Steve S.
I am starting over from scratch with trumpet. Tom is helping me to rebuild and strengthen that foundation, develop good habits and skills with meaningful exercises and great learning materials. In just a few lesson I feel I have made great progress while enjoying myself immensely. Tom's lessons are a delightful experience; I alway leave them feeling very energized and refreshed. My favorite part of our lesson is when we play duets together. Tom plays his Euphonium, I love the sound of that instrument, while I play trumpet; these duets sound just heavenly. I do not have enough good things to say about this instructor, other than I am simply delighted with the experience. Thank you Tom. -s.

I am a professional full time Trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self expression, and for that I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses... Other than the Trombone I do play the Trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of Piano under my belt.
