About Preston L.

I am a professional tubist in the Cincinnati area. I have performed with many major symphony orchestras in the US, and have competed and won many major solo, chamber, and mock band/orchestra competitions.

I have recently completed my doctorate in tuba performance, and I have been teaching tuba and euphonium at the college level since 2016.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2010, and I have now extended my lesson offerings to all low brass students. I feel comfortable teaching students of all levels and ages, from beginner to advanced.

I focus on teaching the fundamentals of brass performance, while keeping the lessons fun and interesting for the students. I am familiar in all styles of music, and I can help you reach the goals you are trying to obtain!
