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. I feel very confident teaching Trumpet up to the advanced level. This is pretty much standard practice within the brass family :)

About Reut

Hello there! I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music. As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I

Our 12-year-old daughter has taken weekly trombone lessons with Reut for 2 years and it's been a great experience for her. Reut set up a virtual concert for her students last May and that was really awesome. We highly recommend Reut for trombone.

As an adult first time learner I was very apprehensive about taking lessons online. I am so glad that I did.

Ellysa is not just a piano teacher. She is a musician. I have learned so many things from her including piano, guitar, songwriting, vocals and the methods behind how music is made. She is knowledgeable about all kinds of technology and music making.

She is extremely intelligent. She’s also very patient. She’s always in a good mood.

I would highly recommend you take lessons from ellysa
