About Ethan W.

My name is Ethan. I'm a trombone player and teacher in the Madison WI area. I received a Bachelors degree in Music Education from Missouri State University and a Master of Music Performance - Trombone at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I have taught private trombone lessons since June of 2014. Currently I teach private lessons at Madison East High School, the Isthmus Montessori Academy, Middleton High School, Rhapsody Arts Center in Verona, WI along with other middle school students from area schools.

Outside of music, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two cats, camping, kayaking, hiking and watching movies.

Ethan meets you where you are, promotes solid fundamentals, is really helpful with questions, has strategies for moving forward & is encouraging but not patronizing.
