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 enjoy teaching beginning technique including making a sound, learning slide positions, reading bass clef notation, and learning to play in tune with a tuner.

About Tina
I've been teaching private lessons for over 15 years. I am a high school music teacher/band director and a freelance musician. I'm looking forward to making music with you!

Your lessons are up to you! If you know what you want to learn, I'll help get you there. If you don't know where to start, I can lead you through the fundamentals and help you set goals.

I like to keep things positive in music lessons. Music is, after all, for fun and enjoyment! I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun.

If you're a beginner, we'll get started with all the fundamentals you need to begin making music. If you've been playing for a while, I'll help you perfect things you've been working on, expand your musical experience, and help you reach your fullest potential as a musician.

My home studio has chairs, mus
ic stand, and areas for parents to sit in on lessons. Garage band is available for recording. Students need an instrument and books.

Need to work on music for NYSSMA? High school auditions? Want to learn how to play with your favorite songs? Looking to strengthen your chops? Looking to have fun practicing and growing with the trombone? Well...
ALL AGES WELCOME!
Students will be taught how to create a relationship with the the trombone and allow it to become a vehicle for there own creativity. Through teachings of tension free and relaxed technique I hope to bring the student to become magicians of the instrument so that the magic of making music becomes reality.

About Abdulrahman
Hello! I am a trombonist, educator, composer, and producer. I started learning music when I was in middle school and have adopted it as my lifestyle. I spent most of my initial studies under the wing of Weston Sprott; Principal trombonist of the Metropolitan Opera. Now, I am a full scholarship graduating student of the Manhattan School of Music and a full time member of the 6 time Grammy winning Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble led by maestro Arturo O' Farill. Support also comes to me from my sponsors/endorsers Antoine Courtois. I perform at venues all over NYC both as a sideman and a band leader! Music is a gift and it is meant to be shared! I hope that I could have the honor of sharing that with you and that we may grow together.

Dustin was Fantastic! Could hear an immediate improvement with a cleaner sound of my son's playing. Dustin is calm and easy going but still addressed the issues my son was having in a positive and relatable manner.
So excited that we are able to have Dustin tutor my son for the trombone.

I am an avid brass performer and teacher in the greater Baltimore area, having played for over a decade. In lessons, we will work out of some of the most trusted method books, discuss fundamental playing techniques in an accessible and easy-to-understand way, and search for unique solutions to individual problems as I tailor my teaching method to your learning style. All ages are welcome.

About Zachary
Hello! My name is Zachary (or Zac for short) and I am a Baltimore-based brass performer and teacher. I have been playing euphonium and other brass instruments for 14 years. Currently, I am in my final year as a music education student at Towson University, where I study euphonium with US Navy musician James Hicks. In addition to euphonium, I am quite proficient on both trombone and tuba, and have taught trumpet and horn as well.

Currently, I play euphonium in the Towson University Symphonic Band and Towson University Tuba Euphonium Ensemble, trombone in a folk-rock style band, and am an avid solo artist. I also have two years of experience as a nationally touring member of the Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps. In addition to these experiences, I have performed with the Cadets2 Drum & Bugle Corps, the Baltimore Ravens Marching Band, and th
e Bushwackers Drum & Bugle Corps. In 2013, I was a recipient of the United States Marine Corps Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence.

Outside of performing, I am an avid teacher in the Baltimore area and beyond. I have worked as an instructor with various high school bands, including Perry Hall High School, Rockville High School, and Urbana High School.

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.

As a musician, Zac is above and beyond talented. Because of his proficiency and excellence, he offers great insight and helpful hints on how to play properly and with support, two extremely important parts of being a musician. Lastly, it is quite obvious what music means to him. His passion is inspiring, and makes me want to continue to pursue and practice my instrument. His lessons helped me develop from a second part to a first part, enabling me to play higher and more challenging parts for my band. Knowing that I was able to leave better than I started makes myself feel lucky and appreciative that I was able to take lessons with a person like Zac. Overall, one of the best music instructors I have had the pleasure of working with.

Let's have fun and rock out! These are the standards by which I measure my own success both on the stage as a professional musician and as an educator in the classroom. The notes on the page aren't going anywhere and they'll still be there to practice for next week if more study time is needed. We'll instead spend the bulk of our time learning how to speak the language of music and how to communicate with others through improvisation. Developing technique, embouchure, style, posture, and other fundamentals will help us to become masters of our instrument and speak more fluently. If we're able to jam out on our own creative musical ideas and share them with others while having fun then our time together was a success.

About Michael
I believe that we can come together and use community music as a vehicle to address some of the global challenges that we’re facing today. Every single person in the world deserves to be treated with respect, kindness, laughter and love. Art shows us all of the good that humans are capable of and we can move forward through divisive times. It's up to all of us to do a better job communicating, collaborating, and educating each other. The arts should be a safe space with an equal platform available to all for sharing ideas and I've committed my life to making the world a better place through music.

I received my bachelor's degree in Trombone Performance from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2013. Since then, I have been one of the founding members of a 27 piece punk/funk brass band out of Lowell, MA known as "The Party Band"
as well as a 9 piece funk cover band out of Boston, MA called "PK and the Mighty Seven." When I'm not practicing, freelancing, or teaching I enjoy hanging out on the porch with the neighborhood cats.

15 years experience teaching and playing Bass and Tenor Trombone professionally. I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Trombone and Bass Trombone Performance from The Juilliard School and Northwestern University, respectively. My experience at these schools has exposed me to the very best teaching and playing in all the world of Low Brass, which is reflected in my own playing and teaching!
I am very passionate about performing and teaching, and especially about leading others to love music and the process of self-betterment, be that on the "horn" or anything in life! In our lessons I will seek to understand your motivations in studying low brass playing/music and tailor my instruction to best help you achieve your goals; be that to develop superior ability on the instrument, nail your all-state/college auditions, develop your overall musicianship, feed your passion for music and artistry, etc.
In short, my students can expect world-class instruction and pedagogy developed ...

About Andre
I am a professional Bass and Tenor trombonist and Low Brass clinician, teacher and pedagogue. I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelors of Music and Northwestern University with a Masters of Music in Trombone Performance. I am currently engaged in post-graduate studies at University of Denver's Lamont School of Music, earning an Artist Diploma.

As a working musican, I currently freelance in the Denver/Boulder area, regularly performing with the Colorado Symphony, Boulder Philharmonic, Opera Colorado, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, and other world-class ensembles. I have performed in venues all around the world, including Carnegie Hall in NYC, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I teach all low brass instruments (Tenor/Bass Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium) and students of all ages. Mu
ch of my own pedagogy and teaching method is developed from my years of study and exposure to some of the absolute best orchestral and jazz brass teachers and pedagogues of our time.

Students can expect to receive world-class instruction in the fundamentals of brass playing (sound production, embouchure development, tone quality, rock-solid time/rhythm, intonation, etc), as well as guidance toward the development of musicianship and artistry (phrasing, style, the concept of SINGING with your brass sound). Ultimately, I am a very diagnostic teacher. That is to say, my primary MO is to determine my students' motivations on their instrument, and to craft our lessons and my instruction to best guide them toward achieving their goals! If you are interested in playing low brass at the highest possible level, want to nail All-state/college/professional auditions, or just interested in playing for fun, or ANYTHING in between: I can help you achieve your goals!
