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!
I play trombone in this high energy party band playing corporate parties, weddings, and clubs.
I substitute for students of UT that cannot make it to a performance for any reason. Mostly play in musicals for the theater department.
I play trombone for a local Brass Band performing arrangements of pop songs as well as original music on a regular basis.
I play trombone for a wedding and private event cover band on a regular basis.
I play trombone for a original Salsa/Hip Hop band on a regular basis since I was in college. I was obviously not performing while at sea with Royal Caribbean, but joined again the moment I got back to Austin.
I played trombone and composed/arranged music for the Orchestra on board. I also scheduled and managed all of the other bands on board.
Trained in first aid and CPR

Tate has been incredible with my 11 year old son. He has patiently introduced the basics of the trombone in an age appropriate way. Tate is very encouraging and never focuses on the mistakes but builds him up on what he is doing correctly so that my son gains the confidence to play the trombone in a group setting for 6th grade band. Tate relates well to kids by using their language and being in their world. I would imagine lots of people can play an instrument but not as many can break it down to the fundamentals and teach it. Tate does this very well.+ Read More
