- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
Hello! I'm Sam Chess and I'm a graduate of the Juilliard School. I'm a huge music nerd and teaching is one of my biggest passions. For eight years, I have been teaching students of various ages and backgrounds, compiling lesson plans designed to work with students at ALL LEVELS. As a prominent NYC based jazz trombonist/band leader/composer, I am more than qualified to teach any student.
I have given numerous masterclasses, workshops, lessons and group lessons in everything from classical trombone technique to jazz history. I offer fun, cohesive lessons catered to your ability in the following subjects:
--Trombone (jazz and/or classical, beginning to advanced)
--Jazz Harmony (any instrument [bass, piano, drums, guitar, etc.] beginning to advanced)
--Music Theory and/or AP Music Theory prep (any instrument, beginning to advanced)
--Ear Training (any instrument, beginning to advanced)
--Arranging/Composition (any instrument, beginning to advanced
--Songwriting (any instrument, beginning to advanced)
--Piano lessons (beginning to intermediate)
*Since I charge the same rate for each of these subjects, many of my students request to split the lesson time into 2 or more subjects
*ASK ABOUT MY GROUP LESSON DISCOUNT, and call up a buddy!
If you have any questions about my specific lesson plans for a particular subject, please don't be afraid to shoot me an email!
