My lessons focus on providing students with fun ways to practice the fundamentals of playing trombone while giving students the chance they need to have fun, make mistakes, and succeed. Some of my previous students have successfully auditioned for honor ensembles such as All-State and Region bands.

About Eric R.

I am a professional trombonist who teaches and actively performs in the Northern New Jersey area. I graduated from Montclair State University with a Bachelor's of Music Education, with a concentration in trombone.

Trombone students can expect to see weekly improvements in their fundamentals. These include sound production, tone quality, slide technique, and articulation. I teach students how to create a relaxed sound that's free from tension and how to create their unique sound. I can help any student play trombone with confidence, freedom, and expression.

I teach trombonists of all ages and experience levels. I have studied classical trombone for 20 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue excellence as a musician.

As a trombonist, I perform regularly in parades, in pit orchestras for local productions of musicals, and community bands and orchestras. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic musicians.

My passion lies in honing my skills as a trombonist, and I firmly believe that great technique is essential to success. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better trombonist!
