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.
Performed with Ricky Martin, Allen Stone, Lew Soloff (Blood Sweat and Tears), Felix Pastorius, the National Tour of Guys and Dolls, The Disneyland All-American College Band, Columbus Jazz Orchestra, Silver Arrow Band (NYC), Shag Horns, Huntertones (founding member) and many others
