I'm a very flexible teacher. Whatever you feel that you need to work on, we will work on. I've been blessed to beginning my musical journey in my hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. From there, I've attended The Juilliard School and earned 3 GRAMMY nominations from my work with various artists. If you're interested, I wouldn't mind teaching you some of the things I've learned at Juilliard and as a professional musician.

(Travelling will incur an extra fee.)

About Jeffery M.

Hi there! I am a 3x GRAMMY-nominated, 25-year-old trombonist and singer from New Orleans, LA. I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from The Juilliard School, in 2018 and 2020 respectively. You can catch me working a LOT in the NY area as both a sideman and a leader of my own band.

I also play euphonium, tuba and some piano. I've performed/recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, Ellis Marsalis, Mac Miller, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Solange, Jon Batiste, and more. I have studied privately/have great relationships with world-renowned trombonists such as Steve Turre, Joe Alessi, Elliot Mason, Delfeayo Marsalis and Wycliffe Gordon. I would be more than happy to share with you what I have learned (and continue to learn) from such amazing players.

It would be my pleasure to help you increase your musicianship! All I ask is that you be honest with me as well as yourself. I love to learn equally as much as I love to teach, so book a lesson! (Ask about my lesson packages as well as my group lesson rates, those are always a lot of fun too!) Let's learn from each other!

Jeffery is able to provide an excellent perspective on what it takes to perform in an organic and musical way in front of large crowds, as he has a ton of experience doing so. I highly recommend taking lessons from Jeffery, it is a wonderful experience.

Jeffery breaks down the basics of Classical and Jazz Theory and gives you methods to master new concepts and directly apply them to improvisation and composition.

Charles Turner and Uptown Swing

Charles Turner is hands-down, one of my favorite jazz vocalists of this generation, and it is an honor to be in his band. Every time we play, we bring down the house with swing!

Steven Feifke is a master of harmony and orchestration (and not to mention, a KILLING pianist). Playing in his big band always keeps me on my toes (in the good way).

Endea Owens is a young star bass player with whom I went to Juilliard. Playing in her band feels like being at a cookout, surrounded by family!
