Hi! My name is Mariel and I'm a professional trombonist and teacher.
I've been teaching for the past 3 years privately and through non-profit music programs. I went to the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and earned a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Trombone Performance. My teaching style is flexible based on what kind of music and goals you'd like to pursue.
I work as a musician in New York, playing mostly in jazz big bands and small groups, as well as world and Caribbean music, classical, funk, r&b, and Latin music bands. I have performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Smalls Jazz Club, Minton's, and Swing 46, among other venues. I have also played alongside Dee Dee Bridgewater, Wynton Marsalis, Wycliffe Gordon, Brian Lynch, Cyrus Chestnut, Lew Soloff, Jerry Dodgion, and Frank Lacy.
I look forward to meeting you!
