Randall has really helped my son grow as a musician in a short period of time. He is very knowledgeable, patient and uses humor to help establish rapport. I was concerned about virtual music lessons, but the experience has been much better than I expected. We were only going to use this for summer enrichment, but have decided to continue during the school year.

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.

Reut is an excellent teacher. She evaluated my current state, helped me set reasonable goals, and coaxed better playing from me than I thought I was capable of. I can't wait for my next lesson, and progressing.

About Holly S.

Trombone is, and should be, FUN. It's my main instrument, and I have 20 years of experience: both my Bachelor's and my Postgraduate Diploma are in Trombone Performance. If you want someone who knows the instrument inside and out, who can help you with intricate technical issues, and who is well acquainted with trombone repertoire and how our instrument is used in different styles and ensembles, I've got the knowledge and the skills -- and I'll do it all in a way that helps you LOVE playing.

About Holly
My 20 years of musical experience taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results. My teaching style is dynamic and positive; I want you to look forward to your lessons. And I have both the teaching and performing chops to challenge you and impart some serious skills.
I have my Bachelor of Music from the Peabody Conservatory and a Postgraduate Diploma in Trombone Performance from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. I've taught a wide range of students -- from children who've never before picked up an instrument, to accomplished high schoolers, to adults who've always wanted to learn and finally have the freedom to do so.
I enj
oy helping people as much as I enjoy performing, and I'd love the chance to inspire and encourage you however I can.

My daughter's lesson with Holly was amazing. My daughter started playing trumpet at the age of 6. I bought her a used trumpet and she basically taught herself how to read music and how to play. By the time she was in middle school, after several years of elementary school band class, where everyone learns an instrument, my daughter had grown bored of her trumpet. She was great at it, but there was no challenge and very little inspiration for her to play. When she met Holly for her lesson that all changed. She was able to talk with Holly and share with her many of her trumpet and band experiences. Holly was enthusiastic and positive as an instructor. She really was able to connect with my daughter(a teenager) and encourage her. My daughter left her lesson feeling very interested in trumpet again and wanting to explore a variety of music she could play on her trumpet. For the next few days she was listening to various trumpet players online and different music styles, at Holly's recommendation.
I can confidently recommend Holly as an instructor for any student who wishes to play trumpet. I believe she is the perfect instructor for my middle school daughter.

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!

Professional jazz trombonist with 5 years of teaching experience! Especially experienced in teaching beginners.
Proficient in teaching all styles of music to all ages and levels.
Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Instead of simply training students to read music and play notes, I prefer to teach my students to think, play, and act like musicians. My lessons feature improvisation skills, sight-reading, playing by ear, building a strong technical foundation and music analysis.

I assure you will see leaps of improvement by working with me!

About Alejandro
I'm a professional trombonist with a strong musical background: I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Performance - Trombone from City College of New York and Michigan State University. I have 7 years of experience teaching students of all ages and levels, and I have been working as a freelancer since I was 17.

I originally arrived in NYC from Argentina at 9-years old. The rich musical environment of NYC allowed me to study and absorb all styles of music at a young age.

I have had the opportunities to study with trombone masters such as Michael Dease, Jason Jackson and Wycliffe Gordon. These learning experiences directly affect the development of my students.

I currently play in a wide range of musical situations all over NYC, from jazz combos and big bands, to musicals and classical orchestras and even other genres such as
Reggea, Ska, Rock, Pop etc.

As my student, you will develop critical skills that will help build a strong musical foundation which will define you as a musician. I will evaluate the level in which you currently are and provide a clear defined path in order to reach our goals.
One thing I strongly focus on is your love for music. My goal is not only to see you progress, but to love the music and have fun with what you are playing.

I can't wait to work with you and help you reach your ultimate goals!

I recently started playing the trombone, Alejandro has helped me on so many levels. As a beginner student i was a bit nervous since i thought it wouldn't be worth it, but he gave me the foundation and the confidence to keep learning. His class is fun and inspiring! Alejandro is a great musician with the heart of a teacher!

I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books.

I have studied with trombonists who play in major symphony orchestras across the US and have years of teaching experience from elementary age to adults. Private lessons are available primarily for trombonists, but are also available to euphonium, baritone, tuba, and trumpet players. Past students have auditioned for and been accepted to regional and district honor bands across multiple states and moved up the section in concert and marching bands.

About Chris
I am a sophomore at Arizona State University studying classical trombone performance. I've been teaching everyone from beginners to advanced high school students and have seen great improvements in all of them. Past students have gone on to become concert and marching band section leaders and even play in All-State Honors Band. One of my biggest goals is to lay down a solid fundamental playing foundation so that playing becomes easier, applicable to many genres, and most importantly more enjoyable. I'm primarily a classical trombonist and am well versed in orchestra and band repertoire, however I can also provide insight into basic jazz playing.
