Professional trombonist working in the NYC area. Experienced in teaching all styles of music to all ages and levels.

I have also taught many older students that want to rediscover their passion for music.

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 musical analysis.
Lesson are also focused on staying engaged by playing new fun and challenging material.
To me the most important thing is to have fun and to keep the passion we all have for music while gaining technical proficiency.

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

I can’t wait to meet you!

I have formally studied flute for more than 23 years and have performed in diverse concert bands, orchestras, theatre orchestras, ensembles, and other performance groups for most of that time. I teach all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced. I primarily provide classical instruction and training for the concert flute and piccolo. However, I also specialize in other woodwind instruments, particularly traditional Celtic instruments like the Irish Tin Whistle and traditional Irish wooden flute. Lessons in these specialized instruments and others are available upon request and based on student interest. All lessons are offered in-person in the comfort of a student's home, or remotely through TakeLessons.com's online learning platform.

Lauren is a great teacher. Very patient, encouraging, stressing the basics while keeping you interested by teaching you new, interesting pieces.
Daniel
I have worked with Lauren for over a year now. I have found that Lauren is very patient and is willing to work with you to reach your goals and not just the goals of a book. Lauren works with you on a one on one basis to help you get where you want to go. Lauren is extremely knowledgable and always ready with a challenge to help you progress.
Catherine P.
I just completed my first lesson with Lauren. I was hesitant as to how it would go because I know nothing about the violin or how to hold the bow. With that said, even though it has only been one lesson, I have complete confidence that Lauren will help me reach the goals I am looking to achieve. She has a wonderful calmness that makes you feel relaxed and competent.

Cullen
I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.
Brad
Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

My goal is to unlock your creativity! As an active musician, producer, and teacher, I love to help people learn how to read, write, and understand the music they love and envision. My teaching philosophy is that every aspect of music is connected and therefore to really get it, you have to learn it all! I take a wide ground up approach inching away at rhythm, melody, theory, technique, and feel altogether, advancing all musical skills equally over time.

About Joshua

I am a Nashville-based musician and record producer, originally from just north of Chicago in Gurnee, IL. I began my musical journey at the early age of three. My parents recount me banging on pots and pans before I could speak, so they placed me in piano lessons at three years old and drum lessons

Our son has been taking virtual piano lessons from Josh for about a year now. Josh is always encouraging, uplifting, and patient. He genuinely cares about teaching our son! It is a Blessing to have Josh as a music mentor and witness our son's piano skills improve by leaps and bounds! Most importantly, Josh makes it fun!
Alexandra
I first started taking lessons with Josh about two and a half years ago and I have truly valued all of the time we’ve spent together! He is such a supportive and fun instructor who focuses on teaching in an engaging and individualized way, which helps students to reach their personal goals and more! Josh constantly inspires me to view music from new perspectives, encourages me to explore outside of my comfort zone, and has ultimately helped me get closer to reaching my full potential!
Zach
Josh is a great teacher who is knowledgable and personable. He works to make content understandable and applicable to the student. I highly recommend taking lessons from Josh if you are looking to deepen your understanding of music production.
