Playing a brass instrument is a physically demanding, high concentration activity that can lead to immense joy and fulfillment when approached correctly. I offer all my students practical and musical ways to master the tuba that will lead to life long enjoyment. I will equip you with fundamentals for healthy practicing and can offer lessons in several styles, including jazz, classical, and salsa. Additionally, I have helped students prepare for school, district, and regional auditions.

About Ethan

MUSIC LESSONS: Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia ten years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs, and musical preferences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back with questions and stories of their progress. To that end, I work hard to tailor lessons to every

individuals interests and goals. Sometimes this means arranging, transcribing a recording, or even composing something new for my students. Additionally, in each lesson, I balance technical skills, ear training, and music theory to assure that each student walks away a complete musician, all structured around your musical goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must provide their own instrument and assigned method books. I will provide a music stand if necessary, and other useful instructional tools (metronome, tuner, etc.)

*** Home Studio ***
I offer lessons in my home located within walking distance of Broad Street in South Philadelphia, near the Tasker-Morris subway stop. I am equipped with a well-playing upright piano and plenty of space for musical activities. There is ample street parking in the area during the afternoon and early evening, and our living room is available to parents while students take their lesson. Students who travel to me for lessons gain all the benefits of performing on a piano, rather than an electric keyboard, and have access to many more resources that I am able to offer from my home, such as recordings and method books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize teaching "late starters" (teens and adults new to piano) fundamentals in music in a fun and exciting way that will have you playing the music you love quickly.

For brass instruments, I am able to help brand new beginners build up their sound and facility through simple exercises that will have them astounded by their progress.

MATH: I use my years of classroom teaching and Master's degree in math education as experience to help guide you to the success you are seeking. I am able to tailor sessions to your specific needs with a few key points in mind:

- helping you catch-up, while also preparing you for what is ahead
- balancing practice with conceptual knowledge and application
- using research-based techniques to maximize your learning

I am a patient teacher, and well-equipped to explain tough topics in multiple ways. I like to use visuals and objects with simple examples to help my students really understand a concept before we try harder material. Total understanding and confidence is my goal for you.

My personal interests in mathematics are problem solving, puzzles, and combinatorics (think "How many different outfits can I make with all the clothes in my closet?"). If you're looking for an addicting puzzle to try, I suggest KenKen to all my students.

I have fifteen years' experience teaching all brass instruments. I will make sure you are playing music you enjoy while developing strong fundamentals with your embouchure and tone. Whether just getting started or preparing for that big audition, I can help you meet your goals!

About David

I am a private music instructor with over 20 years’ performing and teaching experience. There is so much unique joy in playing a brass instrument, and it is my goal to help my students feel that joy! I tailor each lesson to each student's individual abilities and learning methods. For students in school bands, I try to provide lessons that 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 try to find music for them to play that they are interested in learning while still covering everything they need to get a solid foundation on their instrument. I encourage and assist my students in finding opportunities to perform in solo performances and with other groups. I also pride myself in creating an environment w

here the students are comfortable asking questions to help improve their playing.

Over my teaching career, I have worked with over 200 individual students. Many of my students are not only successful in their bands but in regional honor bands and Solo and Ensemble competitions as well. While I now only teach part time, I have years of full-time teaching experience as well. When I was full-time, I worked directly with several Nashville-area schools, including the nationally-acclaimed Oliver Middle School band. When country musician Adam Sanders sought school musicians to accompany him at CMA Fest in 2018, 75% of the brass section was enrolled in my private lesson studio! Last year, competing against hundreds of students from all over the region, my students took second-chair trumpet and trombone at MTSBOA Mid-State.

About John

Welcome!

My name is John Lincourt and I spend most of my professional life playing trombone and leading an array of ensembles, ranging from solo performances to large scale wind ensembles and orchestras. I've been studying music and performing for 19 years. I received my Master's Degree in Instrumental Conducting from Mercer University and my Bachelor's in Trombone Performance from Catawba College. I am currently trombonist for Princess Cruises and have been offered contracts to play on ships that sail to Central and South America, Japan, British Columbia, Canada, Hawaii, Southeast Asia, and Alaska.

I am the type of teacher that prefers to expand the students creativity by approaching music from a variety of perspectives. My goal is to use music as a way of opening

new doors and possibilities for my students, whether that be preparing for success at auditions or developing skills applicable in many facets of life.

Thank you for reading!

About Zachary

Zachary Al-Radiedeh is an avid performer and educator currently residing in the Greater Atlanta area. His eclectic career in music began when he chose the euphonium in fifth grade, mistakenly thinking it was a French horn. Since then, Zachary has become an active performer on many other instruments, including trombone, tuba, voice, and bass, and his performance idioms have ranged from classical to punk to folk fusion. His diverse career has led him to performances in a wide range of noteworthy venues, including Strathmore Music Center, the 9:30 Club, and Mile High Stadium.

Zachary holds a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Towson University. He is currently pursuing a Master's of Music in Music Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Georgia, where he studies with acclaimed teacher David Zerkel. Notably, Zachary has st

udied euphonium with Matthew Shipes Seth Horner and James Hicks, and trombone with Natalie Mannix. He has performed under the baton of several esteemed conductors and composers, including Jason Fettig, Johan de Meij, and Timothy Holtan.

Outside of concert-style performance, Zachary has built a reputation as a sought-after educator and consultant in the world of marching music. As a marching member himself, he joined the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps for two national tours in 2015 and 2016, was a member of the Cadets2 Drum & Bugle Corps in 2014, and was a featured soloist with the Towson University Marching Band in 2015. Zachary has taken these experiences in top level ensembles and applied them as an active and engaging instructor for marching ensembles in the Baltimore area and beyond, including the Towson University Marching Band, Pioneer Drum & Bugle Corps, and the Urbana High School Marching Band. ​

Zachary's professional affiliations include membership in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, Tau Beta Sigma, the Maryland Music Educator's Association, and the National Association for Music Education. In 2018, Zachary was a recipient of two prestigious honors at Towson University: winner of the University Concerto Competition and Second Prize in the Peggy Gordon Friedmann Music Competition. He currently performs on Willson 2950TA euphonium, a Conn 24H trombone, and a Besson 994-2 tuba.

Zachary has been a fantastic instructor for my son who is new to the trumpet and has never taken lessons before. Zachary is a very encouraging teacher, and he communicates very well regarding scheduling. He has also kept lessons fresh and interesting for my fifth grader, sometimes bringing different instruments and teaching tools that keep my son engaged. Highly recommended!

Zac taught me how to properly perform an aria in front of a whole lot of important people that I was stressed about. He gave me some excellent pointers on how to work with a pianist. His knowledge of music and his experience in performance has certainly shaped the way I perceive my own performances ever since that lesson.
