Hi! I am a trombone player fluent in both Jazz and Classical music. I have developed my foundation for the instrument by studying with principal trombonist of the Metropolitan opera, Weston Sprott, for 4 years. If we were to study (whether it was for trombone, tuba, or baritone students) we would work on building a solid technical foundation and start developing repertoire for auditions and for stimulating your growth. Jazz students I have will also spend time building technical foundation but will also be taught jazz starting from where there knowledge stands. I am strong in classical theory and ear training as well from 6 years of intense study. Students of all ages welcome.
Me- I am currently at the Manhattan School of Music on a full scholarship studying jazz trombone as well as classical trombone. Music is a passion to me and I am willing to give to those who seek. I do not play games when it comes to bringing students to their highest level so be prepared for intense lessons.

Amazing teacher, has incredible talent at teaching and playing music. I know that he will be able to help me to be the best musician I can be. He did all the right techniques to get good and it shows in his playing. Overall great teacher and a great guy, really cares about the growth of the student.
