Developing our ears is a crucial part of nurturing our musicianship. Having the ability to hear specific aspects of music allows us to strengthen our understand and appreciation of music.

Like my trombone lessons, ear training lessons will start by solidifying (or reviewing) fundamentals. Once established, we will build upon those fundamental skills to further develop our musical ear.

About PAUL L.

**UPDATE: DUE TO COVID-19, I AM MOVING TO ONLY ONLINE LESSONS. DUE TO THE POTENTIAL FINANCIAL STRAIN THIS EVENT PUTS ON FAMILIES, I AM REDUCING THE COST OF MY LESSONS AND TUTORING**

Hi, I'm Dr. Paul Lynch. I graduated in 2016 from Arizona State University with a Master of Music in Performance. I completed my DMA program at Arizona State University in 2019. I am currently the trombone instructor at South Mountain Community College.

With almost a decade of teaching experience, I provide personalized one-on-one lessons. My goal is to foster students who are relentless in chasing their musical goals. If you are a student striving to audition into all-region and all-state ensembles, this is the studio for you. If you are a student wanting to prepare for college auditions, this is the studio for you. If you are returning to the trombone or just beginning your journey as a trombonist, this is the studio for you.

My performance experience is varied. I was a tenured member of the Washington-Idaho Symphony on bass trombone for five years. I left to pursue my Masters and Doctoral degrees from ASU. Other orchestral experience includes several Summer Pops concerts with the Great Falls Symphony, some featured artists such as Kansas and Charlie Daniels. I spent several years playing in jazz bands, Jazz I from the University of Idaho and Concert Jazz Band from ASU. In the spring of 2016, I performed with ASU's Concert Jazz Band at Highland Jazz Festival, where we featured Wayne Bergeron and Andy Martin. Recent performances include Salt River Brass' " Made in America" program featuring trumpet soloist Rex Richardson, Phoenix Theatre's run of "Bullets Over Broadway," and performing with and conducting the Arizona State University Trombone Ensemble at the 2017 International Trombone Festival. In December 2017, I made my solo debut performing with Salt River Brass. I recently attended the 2018 Pokorny Seminar, where I worked with numerous musicians, including Tim Higgins (SFO), Jim Markey (BSO), Dr. Andrew Glendening (Host/RSO), and Gene Pokorny (CSO).

Paul is a very gifted musician and a great teacher. He is passionate about music, and very patient with students. My son loves his trambone lessons. I highly recommend Paul.

I could tell Paul definitely knew all the tiny details about mastering the trombone since the first lesson. He recognized what I needed to improve upon in order to reach my goals in a timely manner, armed me with the tools to do so, and I have no doubt that I will achieve those goals as the lessons progress.
