The goal of my music theory lessons is to help students understand the mechanics of music. From the basics of reading music, to analyzing Bach chorales, and the Lydian Chromatic Concept, I can take students through a range of topics. Lessons will be tailored to each student's interests and needs.
About Hayden M.

My name is Hayden and I am a professional trombonist, educator, cruise agent, composer, and arranger in South Florida. I love performing and I love sharing my passion with you. I currently work both as a freelance musician and as an entertainment specialist for a major cruise music agency. I also toured the U.S., Canada, and Japan with the World-Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, and now I want to impart the lessons I've learned with you. Before Glenn Miller, I completed a Masters Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone Performance from the University of Miami and received a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas in Jazz Trombone Performance. I have been teaching private music lessons for the last five years and I have given public music clinics throughout the United States and Japan. The goal of my lessons is to help students enjoy and understand music in a deeper way. Through listening, singing, clapping, and playing, I take students through material that we both like and help them expand their abilities and understanding. I cater my material to each person's needs while utilizing techniques from the history of music education to improve fundamentals. As a professional musician, I perform a huge variety of styles for many occasions. As a former member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, I am well-versed in traditional and modern jazz styles and improvisation as well as general performance techniques. I have also performed Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and funk styles on many occasions. Between degrees, I performed on the cruise ships of Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines around the world for thousands of guests. During this time, I developed an understanding of classic Motown, Pop, R&B, Broadway Musical, and Rock styles. I was a member of the award-winning Bad Cactus Brass Band in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ and a member of the Los Wedos Salsa band in Denton, TX. I use these experiences to expose students to a wide variety of musical possibilities and techniques to further their journey as musicians.

I want to once again write a testimonial for Hayden Maple. Had is a gifted musician and instructor. He has worked at my pace, been accomodating during an illness and travel of mine. and he has understood my goals and tailored his teacher towards them. I encourage anyone seeking an instructor to give Hayden a shot.

Hayden is pleasant, well-informed and motivating. He is a good teacher and shares his tips on how to improve. I will be signing up for more lessons! I am actually making music with Hayden's help.

Hayden is a great instructor very professional, dedicated, a truly pro in his craft. He is a versatile musician with an extensive, proven background in all sort of styles that definitely will help anyone interested in learning, advancing, and perfecting the skills required to play the trombone to reach their goals, no matter what level your are at the moment. Let’s be real, if you really want to master or at least play decently well any instrument (the trombone in this case with all its technical challenges) you need a mentor and here we are lucky to have a young, professional, smart musician, with a strong, solid academic formation and a life dedicated to music, specialized in trombone to our entire disposition. If you are trying to find an instructor to help you out with your musicianship, stop looking because you have already found him. I am sure that you, as I have, will exponentially progress with his help. Thank you Hayden.
