Professional music teacher with a Bachelor of Arts in music performance. I am a trombonist who is proficient with all brass instruments at all levels of experience. I can also teach all beginning wind instruments, beginning piano and guitar, and beginning/intermediate bass and percussion. One of my main goals is to have my students play songs that they know or enjoy and to be around music they are comfortable and familiar with while still pushing them to be the best musician they can be. My style of teaching is teaching through songs and having more student driven lessons with the objective of keeping the student fully engaged.

About Adam C.

I am a professional trombonist with a Bachelor of Arts in music performance from Caldwell University. Since a young age, I have had a very diverse musical background. I started my musical journey playing cello, then switched to many other instruments before I found my love for trombone. I am able to play piano, guitar, bass, percussion, all woodwind, and all brass instruments. I believe my background in many different instruments gives me a unique outlook on teaching. I am also a recording artist who writes, produces, arranges and records song that get posted to my growing social media pages. I have an at-home studio that I would teach my lessons from or I can set up lessons online as well.

Music is my passion because every aspect of it is creative and I bring this view into my teachings. It can be something as simple as changing a song a student likes to make it a more achievable goal to how I teach in non-traditional ways to make the lessons more fun for the students. My belief is that music should be fun and educational for everyone of all ages. Even though it can feel challenging at times, I try to make my students thoroughly enjoy all of their lessons. I want my students to enjoy the process of learning music as much as I have.
