Private Trombone Teacher

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!

Private Trombone Teacher

Hi! My name is Dylan and I'm excited to be teaching in the Phoenix area. I moved here with my wife from Tucson to pursue a Master's degree, with the goal of eventually earning a DMA in Music Performance and earning a position as a Professor.

I have been teaching for about 7 years, students ranging from elementary to college level. I enjoy teaching because it's a fulfilling job. If my student has left without learning, improving, or feeling challenged, then I haven't done my job well enough.

As my student, I will do my best to ensure that we cover every aspect of trombone playing - technique, fundamentals, musicality, and everything in between. I will cater lessons to your learning style and your desired goals. Lessons are a very important investment, and I make sure that I leave my students feeling accomplished, challenged, and excited about playing.

I began my Recording Engineer "career" about a year ago, as a project and a service to my peers. I ...

it was an excellent start-

I was in band with Dylan in high school. He was always the best player, and whenever our director was gone, she had him run rehearsal while the sub just sat and watched. Everyone in the band liked him and looked up to him.
Michelle
Dylan taught my son at Great Expectations Academy about four years ago, when he was in middle school. I couldn't be more proud of my son's improvement, and David always was always very happy coming home from school when Dylan came in to teach lessons.

Online Trombone Teacher

Hello! I’m Michael, and I play trombone for the United States Army Band. My lessons focus on fundamentals of playing that last a lifetime!

I am an experienced teacher, having been a low brass teacher for over a decade. Over 90% of my students that study privately through their senior year of high school receive some form of college scholarship for musical ability, as well as excellent standardized test scores. Additionally, my students have received placement in state rankings for organizations such as NYSSMA, TMEA, ASBOA, as well as Interlochen and Tanglewood summer institutes.
My lessons are customized to each students needs and goals, with the primary goal being a cultivation of great fundamentals.
As a performer, my experience as a freelancer in NYC and performing with word class ensembles like the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway shows, and chamber ensembles makes me an excellent choice.
