- Ages 10+
- Teaching since:
I'm a professional trombonist with a strong musical background: I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Performance - Trombone from City College of New York and Im currently working on my masters at NYU. I have several years of experience teaching students of all ages and levels, and I have been working as a freelancer since I was 17.
I originally arrived in NYC from Argentina at 9-years old. The rich musical environment of NYC allowed me to study and absorb all styles of music at a young age.
I have had the opportunities to study with trombone masters such as Michael Dease, Jason Jackson, Alan Ferber, Ed Neumiester and Wycliffe Gordon. These learning experiences directly affect the development of my students.
I currently play in a wide range of musical situations all over NYC, from jazz combos and big bands, to musicals and classical orchestras and even other genres such as Salsa, Reggea, Ska, Rock, Pop etc.
As my student, you will develop critical skills that will help build a strong musical foundation which will define you as a musician. I will evaluate the level in which you currently are and provide a clear defined path in order to reach our goals.
One thing I strongly focus on is your love for music. My goal is not only to see you progress, but to nourish your love of music and have fun with what you are working on.
I can't wait to work with you and help you reach your goals!
He always knows how to take me to the next level of skill and enjoyment.
Enjoy improving my skills and experimentation on the trombone, now in my second year of classes with Alejandro Espinosa. He makes the sessions fun and challenging at the same time. I've improved enormously, yet realize of course how far I've got to go. Lucky to have such a fine teacher guiding my progress.+ Read More

Alejandro is a marvelous teacher, patient yet challenging, encouraging the student through the class and with helpful homework notes between classes. I've been studying with him for two months now. Both of us have been impressed with my progress on the instrument.+ Read More
A wonderful first class. Clear explanations. Presented a great practice plan for me. Challenging, but doable, and fun.
I recently started playing the trombone, Alejandro has helped me on so many levels. As a beginner student i was a bit nervous since i thought it wouldn't be worth it, but he gave me the foundation and the confidence to keep learning. His class is fun and inspiring! Alejandro is a great musician with the heart of a teacher!+ Read More
I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books.+ Read More
