Teaching since:

Hello and thank you for considering me as your trombone teacher! My name is Brian and I graduated from the University of Akron in 2014 with a bachelor's in music education. Obviously, I play the trombone and love every minute of it. In the past, I was a finalist in a concerto competition, 1st place local in the Tuesday musical scholarship competition and won an international competition playing in a trombone quintet with rhythm section. I come with a lot of experience and love working with people to share the joy of learning this magical instrument!
