Private Trombone Teacher

One of the most enjoyable instruments to play when done correctly.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta

and Radio City Music Hall, 54 Below, The Jazz Standard, Bowery Ballroom, Shapeshifter and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will be something the student looks forward to every week. We will work through common method books and learn material that the student has an interest in. For example, some students want to learn to play high notes, a popular song, improvise, or write their own songs. I am a laid back guy, but I do expect effort in the lessons and at home. I believe whatever you put into music is what you get out of it, and I will inspire and motivate the student to get as much out of the lessons as they can. Students will create, with my advisement, and update short term and long term goals every few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard or Piano and Music Stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should provide their instrument, instrument care products (valve oil), method books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and classical music. I use many common methods depending on how the student tends to learn the best, and will even combine different methods if the student requires it.

I have had several lessons so far with Gregory and as an experienced trumpet player can recommend him extremely highly.
I am getting back into the trumpet following a gap after playing for 10 years when I was at high school. Gregory has really helped getting my technique and sound going again, I have been really pleased with my improvement. He has a great demeanour and has been great fun to work with. He is also an excellent player, and is highly reliable and easy to schedule with.

Greg is supportive, patient and has a great understanding of how to approach the student to make the lesson interesting.

Private Trombone Teacher

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.

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 feel confident teaching trombone and trumpet up to advanced level. For piano, I would prefer to stay with beginners and young ones only :) - but I promise you they will have a wonderful experience (and yes, I do have 8 years of piano studies under my belt).

As a Hebrew teacher, I teach both Hebrew reading and pronunciation and modern conversational Hebrew. My professional experience includes teaching at Golda Och Academy in West Orange, B'nai Abraham in Livingston, Central Synagogue in Manhattan and more, as well as many private lessons. In

the schools I provided classroom instruction, private and group tutoring and adult education as well as private instruction for the faculty.

Private Trombone Teacher

I'm a very flexible teacher. Whatever you feel that you need to work on, we will work on. Currently, I am taking lessons from Steve Turre at Juilliard. He has performed with many jazz greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Shaw, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and J.J. Johnson. If you're interested, I wouldn't mind teaching you some of the things I am learning here at Juilliard.

(Travelling will incur an extra fee.)

About Jeffery

Hi there! I am a Grammy-nominated, 23-year-old trombonist and singer from New Orleans, LA. I graduated from The Juilliard School with my Bachelor's in Jazz Studies in May 2018, and I am returning to Juilliard to pursue my Master's. You can catch me working a LOT in the NY area as both a sideman and a leader of my own quintet.

I also play euphonium, tuba and some piano. I've performed/recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Mac Miller, John Legend, Solange, Jon Batiste, and more. I have studied privately/have great relationships with world-renowned trombonists such as Steve Turre, Joe Alessi, Elliot Mason, Delfeayo Marsalis and Wycliffe Gordon. I would be more than happy to share with you what I have learned (and continue to learn) from such amazing players.

It would be my pleasure to help you increase yo

ur musicianship! All I ask is that you be honest with me as well as yourself. I love to learn equally as much as I love to teach, so book a lesson! (Ask about my group lesson rates, those are always a lot of fun too!) Let's learn from each other!

Private Trombone Teacher

Hello! Through my four years at the Juilliard School I have taken lessons with some of the worlds most prominent trombonists, including Elliot Mason, Steve Turre and Joe Alessi. In addition, I have a vast experience of teaching both classical and jazz students. I've created my own general lesson plan comprised of exercises I have received from these world renown teachers, as well as from other working professionals in NY.

I'm very quick to notice your skill level and create a cohesive, unique lesson plan catered to working on your weaknesses and polishing your strengths! A mediocre teacher will simply give you default exercises to work on-- a task better left to google. A good teacher, however, can diagnose a student and find the most efficient way for he/she to improve.

I promise to be a caring, fun, informative teacher. Please contact me for more information about my lessons.

Teaching is my biggest passion, I can't wait to work with you!
Happy practicin'!

About Sam

Hello! I'm Sam and I'm a graduate of the Juilliard School. I'm a huge music nerd and teaching is one of my biggest passions. For eight years, I have been teaching students of various ages and backgrounds, compiling lesson plans designed to work with students at ALL LEVELS. As a prominent NYC based jazz trombonist/bandleader/composer, I am more than qualified to teach any student.
I have given numerous masterclasses, workshops, lessons and group lessons in everything from classical trombone technique to jazz history. I offer fun, cohesive lessons catered to your ability in the following subjects:

--Trombone (jazz and/or classical, beginning to advanced)

--Jazz Harmony (any instrument [bass, piano, drums, guitar, etc.] beginning to advanced)

--Piano lessons (beginning to intermediate)

--Music Theory and/or AP Music Theory p

rep (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Ear Training (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Arranging/Composition (any instrument, beginning to advanced

--Songwriting (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

*Since I charge the same rate for each of these subjects, many of my students request to split the lesson time into 2 or more subjects

If you have any questions about my specific lesson plans for a particular subject, please don't be afraid to shoot me an email!

Happy practicin'!

ok Sam is fantastic!
the connection was a little weird at first but it was on my end I think because the second I moved to my living room it was steady. Rather than find a local teacher I just figured to see if I could find someone affordable online, and wow, he also went to Juiliard!
6 out of 5!

I'm so lucky I found Sam! I used to play piano and was hoping to brush up on technique, learn jazz chords/harmony, and play along improvising with a jazz soloist. Getting a Juilliard trained musician for this price is a STEAL, I highly recommend.

Lawrence
I bounced around with a few other teachers who had flashy profiles, but none of them had as thorough, personalized, or challenging of an approach as Sam. He was so quick to diagnose my mistakes and had a way of making the trombone fun rather than frustrating (imagine that!!)

TEN STARS!!!!

Private Trombone Teacher

What I like while I'm teaching trombone is also to introduce some harmony aspects that helps to understand the music that we perform and it helps to make a bigger progress.

I adjust every program according to the student. I like to do arrangements from the pieces students want to play and I make a specific method for each student.

About Alba

I'm a performer in jazz music. Coming from a musicians family I started to play the trombone at the age of 9. I have my bachelor in classical trombone in ESMuC (Spain). Studied classical with Daniel Perpiñán, Brand Attema between others. I performed with many orchestras but I had focus more in the ensemble music.

Just finished my second bachelor in Jazz trombone at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam with Ilja Reijngoud and Bart Van Lier.

Currently I'm studying my Master of Music at the Juilliard School (New York).

I have been teaching in Music Schools to kids from 6 years-old to adults. Since I moved to New York I would like to keep teaching because I also learn from my students!

Alba is helping my daughter perfect her scales and overall playing of the trombone. Her lessons are packed with some review and new information. She has definitely shown progress within such a short time of being tutored by her.

Additionally, my students have received placement in state rankings for organizations such as NYSSMA, TMEA, ASBOA, as well as Interlochen and Tanglewood summer institutes.
My lessons are customized to each students needs and goals, with the primary goal being a cultivation of great fundamentals.
As a performer, my experience as a freelancer in NYC and performing with word class ensembles like the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway shows, and chamber ensembles makes me an excellent choice.
