I enjoy nurturing musical creativity in my
students.

It is Rapturous for me when a student realizes
their own musicality by going past just
playing the notes on the page, to actively
expressing the Message (which could be a
Thought, Emotion, or a Scene) that is
inherent in the piece.

In a Low Brass lesson, I have the student play:
-A quick and effective warm-up with me.
-A quick review of their assigned
technical exercises.
-Their assigned Etude or Chart or Solo.
-A Duet with Me.

Technical aspects of Performance:
1. A mastery of ability to Sight Sing.
2. Clean Articulation.
3. A wide (and well-sounding) Range.
4. Moving between partials is Flexible.
5. A beautiful Tone.

I wish for my students to become more than
just good instrumentalists, I want for them
to always have fun with music. When a
student realizes that music can ultimately be
Emotional and Creative Outlet for them,
they will be Musicians for life!

About Scott

I am a Bass Trombonist, but teach all brass instruments. I have been teaching for 20 years. I help my students build their Tone, Technique and Articulation by teaching a simple Warm-Up routine. I have written an 8-page eBook entitled "Optimal Brass Playing" that describes ten areas of best practi

Mr. Scott really is a nice person to meet. For my first voice lessons, He helped me identify what range I was comfortable with and introduced a few of his works that opened my perspective on reading music. He knows how to teach his material if you specify what exactly you want to accomplish.

Scott is someone who expertly emphasizes both the fundamentals of trombone playing and musicianship. I have had the opportunity to read his melodious etudes arrangements with him and his arrangements are expertly crafted to force the performers to work on listening, phrasing, intonation and sound quality all in one fell swoop. Scott's attitude is very warm and not condescending in the slightest. He is very positive while always encouraging the player to grow. If you are a low brass player who wants a deeper understanding on the intricacies of low brass performance and overall musicianship, you should absolutely give Scott a try.

I am writing in support of Mark Levenson. I have known Mark for over ten years. In this time I have been lucky to work with him on several projects. Mark is a very fine musician and a great person. 'For the past several years he has been Principal Alto and Saxophone Section Leader for the Sarasota Concert Band. This is a semi-professional Symphonic Band that I conduct. His playing is at an artist level and his commitment to the ensemble is exceptional. When needed to help out, Mark will gladly switch to play soprano, tenor or baritone saxophone for the good of the group. And he plays these equally well. Also, about once a year, Mark would take the baton and guest conduct with great ease and artistry. Mark also worked for the Board of Directors of the SCB. In this capacity he was very helpful in many aspects of keeping the band running smoothly. Raising money, suggesting music, publicity, concert and rehearsal logistics and more are all elements Mark was always willing to help with. His previous experience as a high school band director makes him able to understand and have expertise in all areas of band affairs. He is always willing to help with a positive attitude. His experience in Human Resources also helped in matters of personnel and logistics.

Another way I have been involved with Mark is through his teaching. The SCB has a commitment to fostering music education in our area. Mark has served as a teacher and mentor to many high school band students in our area. We run an Honor Band, a Summer Music Camp and regular playing opportunities for middle and high school students. Mark's hard work and high level of knowledge has always helped our groups..

Mark is also a very fine musical instrument repairman. He does a great job repairing both woodwind and brass instruments. For the past decade or so he has been my main repairman for my clarinets and saxophones that I play professionally.

When Mark and his family decided to leave our area, it was a big loss for us. Besides myself, many other music teachers, performers and students miss the influence of Mark. I know that Mark will continue his high standards and exceptional commitment where ever he is. Our loss is your gain. I enthusiastically recommend Mark Levenson to you.

Mark is a very clear and learned instrumentalist, my instrument of choice is the Saxophone. His approach is very relaxing and direct, Mark is very complimentary towards the things I did correctly which is a real plus for a student like myself.

I know his knowledge base is deep and look forward to actually picking up something new and redirecting bad habits. Tone, Breathing, relaxing, improving the embouchure enjoy what your doing was his focus on the first visit. 1st lesson five stars...

The main goal of my teaching is to help students express themselves through their music. I tailor my teaching to each individual student, according to their personality, physiology and current needs. While giving students structure and discipline to play with a healthy posture, sound, and intonation, it is also important to keep that same sense of wonder and discovery as when first hearing a new piece of music.

About Helen

[Education] I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the Korea National University of Arts. After that, I came to the US to study at Mannes School of Music with Daniel Panner, and at New England Conservatory in Boston with Dimitri Murrath. I graduated in 2014 with a Master of Music from New Engla

Chris was very patient with me. I had special challenges due to be an older student that started later in life. We communicated very well--asking and answering questions. Chris knew how to help me as I am challenged with intonation. He did not let me slide which is an excellent quality in an instructor.

When I had questions or problems that we were not able to figure out between the two of us he went to his instructor to ask. He was not afraid to admit that he didn't know. He respected me as a scientist who had challenging questions.

Overall, I highly recommend Chris as an instructor for viola.

Chris is super knowledgeable, flexible to make lessons work over Skype, and attentive to make sure the lessons are tailored to what I am trying to learn as a growing pianist. I’ve had a great experience, grown a lot, and look forward to more lessons!
