What I like while I'm teaching trombone is also to introduce some harmony aspects that helps to understand the music that we perform and it helps to make a bigger progress.
I adjust every program according to the student. I like to do arrangements from the pieces students want to play and I make a specific method for each student.

- Teaching since:
I'm a performer in jazz music. Coming from a musicians family I started to play the trombone at the age of 9. I have my bachelor in classical trombone in ESMuC (Spain). Studied classical with Daniel Perpiñán, Brand Attema between others. I performed with many orchestras but I had focus more in the ensemble music.
Just finished my second bachelor in Jazz trombone at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam with Ilja Reijngoud and Bart Van Lier.
Currently I'm studying my Master of Music at the Juilliard School (New York).
I have been teaching in Music Schools to kids from 6 years-old to adults. Since I moved to New York I would like to keep teaching because I also learn from my students!

Alba immediately honed in on exactly the kind of student I am and taught me the basics. Looking forward to more lessons! I was a little unsure of doing lessons over Skype, but it turned out to be perfect.
As an adult student and only 3 weeks in--so far so good! Alba is definitely an accomplished musician and a very good teacher. Her teaching style is very positive and right to the point, which works well for me.
Alba is helping my daughter perfect her scales and overall playing of the trombone. Her lessons are packed with some review and new information. She has definitely shown progress within such a short time of being tutored by her.
