I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, classical, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

I am all about teaching the whole musician, meaning that you will not be learning just trombone but all the skills necessary to be the best musician you can be! This includes ear training, music theory, sight-singing and more.

About Alexis
I believe in teaching all aspects of musicianship when learning an instrument such as music theory, ear training, and singing, just to name a few. I have been private teaching for more than 6 years and I specialize in trombone, music theory/ear training, and piano lessons and have taught a variety of levels. I provide a very inviting environment for students to learn and grow.

* In case of allergies, I will mention that I have 2 cats in my home. Let me know if this is a problem so we can work out a different location.

Billy's approach to ear training really helped me a lot! He went at my pace and made references to popular song a to hear chords that, without context, are hard to hear. He accommodated to my way of learning and went from there. I still use some of the methods he's taught me till this day!

New Orleans, LA

View Full Profile

The Trombone is the single most powerful acoustic instrument in terms of size and efficiency. The thing's a cannon, and one just has to know how to use it right. My lessons will focus on enriching tone, increasing lung capacity, improving slide dexterity, strengthening embouchure, sharpening intonation (pun intended) and having fun with the mightiest of all wind instruments.

About Kenny
I am a professional working musician and a licensed K-12 instructor in the State of Louisiana, having graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Music Education, with a Minor in Jazz Studies in the spring of 2016. I play the guitar (electric, steel/ nylon string acoustic), the trombone (tenor/ bass), and the drums (kit).
Guitar students can and should expect to improve in some facet every week after every lesson. Every person approaches music differently, and thereby, approaches the guitar differently. Different bodies mean different physical methods for successful playing. Different brains mean different musical realities- and whatever the state of yours is, I want to help you make it better.
There are so many different ways to be musical, and as your teacher I want to make you aware of them, and help you use every
tool in your toolbox, as well as give you some new ones. Music is not too vast to understand, and all it takes is one little push to be off on your way, making your own musical adventures.
As someone who has thrived in most ensemble scenarios from Concert Bands, Orchestras, Big Bands, to Rock Bands and Jazz Combos, I can help prepare you for any musical undertaking. I love students who love music and want to get better at it, regardless of what style it might be in.
So whoever you are, whatever you like, and wherever your skills are at, I want to help- to impart you with skills and knowledge you might need to play at the level you want. I look forward to meeting you and helping you be even more awesome!

I am Kenny's former jazz teacher at Lexington High School. I've had Kenny in classes, and also invited him to be on my staff for a summer jazz camp I run. I can say with absolute confidence that Kenny is an excellent musician, an enthusiastic and engaging young man, and he's great with kids. I recommend you give him a try!

I have been teaching music for over 10 years. I am a strong believer in making sure my students have strong fundamentals. The stronger your fundamentals the easier it is to play the way you want to play. I have a lot to offer a student that goes far beyond playing the instrument. I have a lot of experience helping students learn how to deal with performance anxiety and learn music theory.

About Jeremy
I have been teaching music for over 10 years now. I come from Indiana and I worked as a brass teacher for several state finalist high school marching bands.

I believe that students need to feel free to make mistakes. When students feel comfortable it is easier for them to focus on getting better and are much more receptive to feedback.

I currently play euphonium for the Philadelphia Wind Symphony. I have also performed professionally for several musicals including West Side Story, Pirates of Penzance, and Animal farm. My previous performance experience includes being principal trombone of the Audubon Symphony Orchestra, principal euphonium for the Michigan City Municipal Band, and performing a solo work with the IUSB Wind Ensemble.

My main specialty lies with classical trombone but I also have plenty of experience with jazz music.

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have experience teaching many beginning students! I have 3 children and decided to give up regular teaching to be with them. I marched Drum and Bugle Corp and was taught a lot about Brass instruments during that time. I played a straight Baritone and Mellophone in different years. I believe that tone production is the most important area of study. It doesn’t matter what you can play if it doesn’t sound good. I can’t wait to help more students love to “play” on their instruments!

About Kim
Hello! I started my love of music at a young age with my family playing and singing at family functions. That turned into a wanting to learn how to play the flute and I went up through high school with that instrument. After high school I branched out more into vocal performance. After that I joined a traveling performance group. No not the circus! I joined Drum and Bugle Corp. They taught be how to play the Baritone and I marched a straight Baritone. I then learned the Mellophone and marched that after. Since I had experience with Drum Corp Marching I taught over 10 different marching programs over many different years. I graduated from College with my Bachelors in Music Education and was a music director until I had my children and decided to give up regular teaching. After all of the years I spent honing my craft I decided t
o continue giving lessons. I have the most experience with Flute, but can teach many other instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone/euphonium, piano.
I have worked with many different age groups and levels of ability. I am happy to help you learn to have fun and "play" your instrument!

I studied with some of the finest trombonists in the world while getting my undergrad degree in Jazz Studies from The Juilliard School in New York City. I have played the horn for over 13 years, and for 6 years professionally in New York working with people such as Wynton Marsalis, Ron Carter, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Juilliard Jazz Orchestra, in addition to regular performances at high level jazz clubs such as Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. Also as a composer I can offer lessons on composition, music theory, improvisation, ear training, and piano as well.

In addition to performance success, I have been teaching private students for 5 years, with several students still coming back when they are in town after several years.

Beginning students can expect to work on fundamentals of getting a good sound on the instrument and learning scales, arpeggios, and simple melodies.

Intermediate students can expect to be learning repertoire (the style dependent on what the student wants) and ...

About Will
Hello! I am a young active trombone player on the New York music scene with a passion for teaching as well, and a recent grad from the Jazz Studies program at the world famous Juilliard School in Manhattan. In addition to being a consistent player in New York City, I also am a composer, arranger, and Music director for the former American Idol contestant, Hollywood Anderson.

My students can expect a very knowledgable and straightforward teacher, but not a harsh one. I believe that everybody finds their inspiration at their own time and my job as a teacher is to do my best to correct technical issues as they arise, but to also provide materials that will inspire and want to push you forward.

Because I have studied and performed at a high level, I am prepared to take on whatever problems Advanced and intermediate students have to offer.
If we reach a point where I think you've outgrown my knowledge, I will pass you on to someone who can help you succeed even more than I can.

My background as a Youth Minister in the Methodist Church granted me patience that also opens up the possibility to teaching beginning students. Truth be told, I had to re-learn many things when I arrived to New York in order to correct bad habits that I learned in high school. So I have gone through the process of building from the ground up and have a defined system to provide a foundation to build upon for a great musical future.

Having worked with many fantastic musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Elliot Mason, and Ron Carter, I have been immersed in a depth of American music that most people have not.

I look forward to providing you with guidance and inspiration!

Will
