Lesson Details

Trumpet

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
In the first few lessons beginner students will work on breathing techniques to focus on producing a clear sound. Breathing is something we all do every day, but breathing for brass playing is a skill to work on from day one for as long as you play your instrument! Buzzing and reading music will be layered together to start making music.

Hello there! I'm very excited to offer trombone, trumpet, tuba, and piano lessons to students of any age in the northern New Jersey area.

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.

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!
