Tuba lessons made easy: Learn from Cincinnati's top professional orchestral trombonist
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.

I'm currently accepting students in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky as well as online lessons.

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!
