If you are looking to take your tombone playing to the next level, you came to the right place. I have a degree from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and have studied with some of the best trombonists in the world. I have a lot of playing and teaching experience, having performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and many other venues around the city. I can teach you any style you are interested in and will make sure you have fun doing it.
About Billy D.

I am a professional musician based in New York City with a degree from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. I have many years of teaching and performing experience, touring all across Europe and played at many venues such as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Jazz Standard, and Smoke. I am a passionate teacher with the priority of making my lessons both enjoyable and effective for my students. In our lessons we will cover a wide array of subjects that will develop your musicianship such as technique, reading music, theory, rhythm, ear training, performance tips, and much more. I really hope to be working with you soon!
