Hello there! I'm very excited to offer individualized trombone lessons to students of any age in the Northern New Jersey area, with a background in both music pedagogy and adult learning theory. In addition to trombone instruction, I provide beginner to intermediate trumpet and tuba instruction.
I studied music at the College of New Jersey and have orchestral, wind ensemble, brass quintet, pit orchestra, jazz, and drum and bugle corps performance experience. I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts in Teaching Music at Montclair State University.
Led all music activity periods, focusing on hand drumming and other group percussion, during 4-week residential summer camp serving over 200 campers ages 8-18.
Taught group music classes to students grades K-6 on guitar, piano, violin, percussion, and woodwinds in before and after-school enrichment programs. Taught individual instrumental music lessons assessing each student’s needs, developing learning plans, providing homework assignments, and tracking progress.
· Trumpet · In home Justin is great. Very patient and engaging.
· · In studio While I don't have firsthand knowledge of Justin's trombone teaching skills, I am quite familiar with his talent for and love of teaching through my work with him as an organizer and a trainer ever since we met in 2010. Justin is great at interacting with people of all backgrounds and ages, and has utmost patience for absolute beginners. Justin's method of teaching is learner-centered and successfully balances being supportive while also challenging. Also, he'll make you laugh while you learn!
