Overview

Hello my name is Chris, I am a professional musician and educator living in Brooklyn, NY. I've been playing trombone for 16 years. I am open to teaching any level from beginner to college. As a professional musician I've played in many different situations from traveling broadway shows, commercial recordings, jazz and big band, and pop/rock horn section gigs. My main project is called Huntertones, a three horn led jazz/funk instrumental group. I've done a lot of writing for this group and am able to give lessons in composition/arranging as well.

In a addition to the trombone I also perform as a beatboxer/vocal percussionist. If you are interested in learning those techniques I'd be happy to share my skills in that area.
