Hello! My name is Tate Hearn and I want to teach you what YOU want to learn. I have been teaching for about 5 years to kids and adults all around the world. I have helped adults learn what they have always wanted to learn as well as kids getting awards in competitions such as UIL events.

I graduated with a major in Jazz Studies in Trombone Performance from The University of Texas State in San Marcos. Shortly after graduation, I became a Trombone Player for Royal Caribbean International. Within a year, I had climbed the ranks to Musical Director where I scheduled and managed all of the bands on board as well as still holding the trombone chair in the Orchestra. After, I composed and arranged some music for the Orchestra on board, the fly on guest entertainers started to hire me to write their shows and eventually Royal Caribbean was hiring me to write music for their shows. I am still performing regularly in Austin and surrounding areas.

I can wait to meet you!
