I am a 22 year old senior music media major (emphasis in trombone) at the illustrious Norfolk State University. I study with the tuba player for the Virginia symphony and had a few lessons with one of their trombonists. I have been playing trombone since 2010, started off on trumpet before then. I play for 2 bands currently, Hot Gumbo Brass Band which is a New Orleans second line band and Infinite Flava which is an r&b group. At Norfolk state I have been in the jazz band, jazz combo, marching band (assistant section leader 2018 and head section leader 2019 for the trombone section), and symphonic band. I am well rounded in all facets of music. From classical all the way to the old tailgate trombone days. I have learned a lot from my mentors and think I am more than capable of getting my students on the right track. I prefer to teach beginner and intermediate, one of the hardest things to teach beginners is the pedagogy, how to make music instead of just playing the right notes. I have more than enough materials for students than you think. I’ve been very serious about my playing for about 6 years now, I also plan on getting my masters once I graduate in Trombone performance.

About Amari O.

Hello!! My names is Amari and I am a trombonist, I have been playing for 10 years and am currently attending Norfolk State University. I am a senior music media major, emphasis in trombone. I currently play in a New Orleans second line style band called “Hot Gumbo Brass Band” and also a funk and R&B group called “Infinite Flava”. I have also played in the NSU jazz ensemble, NSU Jazz combo, NSU symphonic band and the marching band. Being that I’m still a student, I look to only teach kids in middle and high school. My goal is to have you on top of your game when it’s time to go back to marching band rehearsals, concert band rehearsals, scale tests. The basics, something I’m very good at teaching. My teaching started with me coming to college and just helping my colleagues out when they are having trouble with practicing something. Then I became section leader, the rest is history!

I have studied with the low brass section players of the Virginia symphony orchestra, as well as my mentor in the Army band. I have been apart of the Norfolk state University spartan legion marching band since I got to school in 2016. I was assistant section leader in 2018 and head section leader in 2019 for the trombone section.

Amari has made trombone lessons with my son very educational yet enjoyable. He is patient and very knowledgeable about the trombone. Amari has even made my son want to practice between his weekly lessons.
