I am a professional orchestral trombonist and I have been an active brass teacher for almost twenty years. I have played in orchestras across the USA and Europe, including the Cincinnati Symphony, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and many more. I aim to give my students a solid understanding of the technical skills required to play a brass instrument, and to share with them the musical knowledge I have gained from studying with some of the best brass teachers in the world.

Super thorough and very encouraging! I always learn a lot at each lesson and feel great about my progress. David meets me where I'm at and at my pace and is always moving me forward at every lesson. Can't recommend him enough!

Due to COVID, my son was unable to start traditional in person trumpet lessons. We decided to try virtual lessons to get him started and it's been one of the best decisions we've made! David is knowledgeable on music theory and takes the time to make sure our son understands concepts such as rhythm & pitch. We've seen a great deal of improvement over the past year.

David Roode is super knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic about teaching as well as being a wonderful trombonist. I am an old guy, and David was wonderful to work with. I think of him as a friend as well as a teacher!
