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.

About David R.

I'm an experienced brass teacher with almost twenty years teaching and performing experience. I perform frequently with orchestras such as the Cincinnati Symphony, Columbus Symphony, the Charleston Symphony and I am a member of both the Carmel Symphony Orchestra and Des Moines Metro Opera.

I'm currently accepting students in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky as well as online lessons. Feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions about lesson content, my teaching approach or anything else. Thanks!

My son likes the lesson and how David chunks the music. He was very prepared, contacted me before the lesson to ask questions and to make it a great experience for my son.
