I was completely blown away by the instruction of Mr.Gallo! I had no idea what was involved in trombone playing! Inside of an hour, Mr Gallo had me in a more relaxed state to where I was making clear notes! It was awesome I am so looking forward to achieving my goal! Worth every penny! Thaaaaaanks!

Pasquale was excellent. He evaluated how my son blew into his trombone, and made the necessary corrections. It was exactly what we needed. He was very friendly and encouraging, and gave us specific tips on how to practice. I am so grateful we found him.

My son said Mr Pasquale was incredibly knowledgeable and could tell immediately what kind of help he needed to improve his trombone playing. I am pleased to have my son taking lessons from Pasquale.

Mr. Gallo was very professional. He started out making sure Mackenzie was using the right techniques for breathing, mouthpiece, etc. He wants to be sure you know the correct method from start to finish and doesn't just teach you the notes/music. We were very pleased with his teaching method. Thank you.

My 13 year old daughter wanted lessons to improve on her french horn playing . We found Pasquale through his positive reviews and thought we would give him a try. I was a little apprehensive that lessons could be effective through the Internet verses in person. I was wrong.
Pasquale called us as soon as we signed up for lessons to introduce himself, exchange Skype information as well as iron out the best times for lessons.
I played French horn from 5th grade through most of high school and also took some private lessons.
I was extremely impressed with Pasquale. He took the time to really explain to my daughter the mechanics of playing a brass instrument better than I ever heard it when I was younger.
He had my daughter take notes and gave her assignments for the next week.
I am looking forward to watching my daughter's playing grow under his guidance.

First lesson went very well. Pasquale was extremely thorough. His knowledge and passion came through loud and clear. My son got a lot out of it and is off to a good start.

Mr.Gallo is indeed passionate about teaching & this is very evident in his approach. He has encouraged my son enormously & in just 3 lessons I have noticed a huge improvement in my son's progress, ability & general confidence.

Great introductory lesson, patient and obviously passionate about his craft and sharing it with others. A true teacher, much more than just teaching music was shared.

I can't express enough in words how wonderful Mr. Gallo is as a music instructor. He has been teaching both my boys trumpet for ten years now. My older son has achieved Superior Ratings in Solo and Ensemble for 6 years straight, was selected to perform with the All County Jazz Band for 3 years and contributed to MSD High School winning numerous awards in Jazz, Concert, Symphonic and Marching Band. My younger son started his first lessons last year (6th Grade) and achieved Superior Ratings on his first Solo and Ensemble. All of these accomplishments are due to Mr. Gallo's excellent teaching skills and the knowledge of how to get you or your child to reach their full potential. I strongly recommend Mr. Gallo to any parent or student who wants to learn from one of the best.

Pasquale is a passionate trumpet player, and is an equally passionate teacher. He thrives on the success of his students. Throwing aside a cookie cutter approach, Pasquale tailors his lessons to the individual needs of the student. He challenges you to exceed your comfort level. By far superior to the rest !

Mr. Gallo has taught me musically for almost 7 years and I have been taking lessons with him now for almost 6. In my opinion, he is one of the best music instructors I have ever worked with. He is wise, informative, understanding, and flexible with scheduling lessons. He makes sure to do what is best for his students. Without him, I wouldn't be the musician I am today. From having to deal with the physical problems and even improving my musicianship, Mr. Gallo has been able to steer me in the right direction with advice from his past years of teaching and playing. Even after marching in the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps for the past two summers, I have always resorted back to taking lessons with Mr. Gallo. With his help, I have been able to play the highest ranked solos and earned the highest evaluation in my state's Solo and Ensemble events. Now, I am a senior in high school and I feel very confident with my decisions of pursuing music in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Gallo as a trumpet, brass, and even music teacher.

I started lessons with Mr. Gallo 5 years ago; I didn't know how to play trumpet at all but Mr. G was very patient and saw potential in me. He gave me the knowledge on brass pedagogy to be able to excel on the horn and the muscle concepts to understand how to create a great sound on a brass instrument. Under his instruction I was able to not only become a great jazz soloist, but a great classical trumpet player as well. Thanks to his instruction I was able to make it into the Wind Ensemble and the top Big Band style jazz ensemble at my College conservatory as an incoming freshman

Mr. Gallo is a wonderful instructor. I started taking lessons with him in 7th grade, and even now that I'm in college I try to take lessons with him whenever the opportunity presents itself. He caters each lesson specifically to what the individual student needs and would benefit from, rather than attempting to force one instructional path on his students. He is very flexible and willing to work around each student's schedule to figure out when lessons would best fit into the week. He is patient and very friendly; definitely someone easy to work with. You won't get better lessons for a better price.

I started taking lessons with Mr. Gallo when I was in 6th grade. I am in tenth grade now and I am a phenomenal player. Whether I needed help with a playing issue or had an event and wanted to be ready, he always knows the answer. Every time I think I have reached my peak in playing, he surprises me and bumps me to the next level. Solo ensemble is a band event in which you would go to and have judges judge your playing on a particular song. This year I am playing a level 7, which is the highest level of difficulty you can play for this and will ever see in the real world musician life. Most professionals can't do this. No one you can find will be as good as a teacher as Mr. Gallo.

I have been taking lesson with Mr. Gallo for over 4 years now and not once have he met any challenges that I face and was unable to fix it.Through Mr.Gallo's lessons,I came from being a player who lacks the desires to pick up my horn and practice everyday and someone who just doesn't have the confident to play a note properly (doing things half measure) to a player who cares about the tone quality and initiation of a note and putting in the work by practicing everyday to get good results.My work ethic and the desire to play my horn have increase through having lesson with Mr.Gallo and I would recommend this instructor to anyone who express an interest in playing Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, and French horn, or someone who just wanted to learn music theory.

Mr. Gallo has been teaching me for over 6 years now and has made me an amazing French horn player. I started off without knowing how to play the instrument let alone a proper note and transitioned into playing the horn in 4 registers with quality sound. He's also help me make drum corps like the blue knights and the blue stars.

Mr. Gallo has been giving me lessons for over five years. I'm only 17 but I've learned so much that I could probably teach on my own. If you need help with learning how to play trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, whether you're a beginner or whether you want to learn more at an advanced level, Mr. Gallo is the man for the job.
