Lesson Details

Trombone

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been playing trombone most of my life and it is the first instrument I learned to play. I play in all the top groups at CSUF, classical and jazz. If you want to get better, I am the guy to take lessons off of. I have worked with many rock/pop groups in the Inland Empire, and I continue to collaborate with other artists in the area. I will push you to be your best!

Steven is a very good instructor. He has a wonderful personality. He!s firm, knowledgeable, and knows how to encourage the student to work hard. My son has learned a lot from him in a short period of time as a beginner. I’d definitely recommend Steven.
