Merrillville, IN
View Full Profile

My mission, is to create a private and educational environment to students of all ages. One that enriches their senses to music, through reading, writing, ear training, performance and technique.

About Nicholas
Nick comes from a family of four generations of music in the GREEK/Balkan repertoire. He graduated from Columbia College of Chicago with a concentration in Music Composition in December of 2009. Currently teaching and performing professionally, Nick enjoys all styles of music, but has been declared as an "old soul" by many of his friends. He enjoys playing lots of Motown, funk, and jazz, but is proficient in Classical, Rock, and Blues as well. When not playing music (rarely), he is a Board member for the GivingBackPack Foundation which provides school supplies to underprivileged children. Nick's dedication to education is shown through his music and his personal volunteer hours, he feels his diverse background gives his students an advantage to a broader perspective of music and theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set an individual c
urriculum based on students needs, wants and aspirations. We will focus on proper technique, theory, musicianship and sightreading to become a better all around musician. After a few months of lessons, you will have the proper fundamentals to grow as a musician and discover the art of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All necessities on site.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in many styles, I have played professionally and teach, ALL forms of Rock, Jazz, Blues, World (ethnic musics), Pop, Acoustic, Folk, and most other styles.

I hadn't played the trumpet in 30 years. My first lesson with Nicholas was like starting from scratch. He is very knowledgeable, polite, professional, and definitely patient. I feel that that homework Nicholas assigned was spot on. I'm playing better already after only two days. I would certainly recommend him to a friend.

Nicholas really tailored the lessons to what I needed. They weren't cookie-cutter lessons, and I appreciated that. He answered all the questions I had, and helped me understand some concepts that I never would have gotten just learning online. I definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Nicholas was very patient, took the time to write down information that was helpful (very helpful). Nicholas understood where I was in reference to me knowing nothing about the guitar and he is very knowledgeable with the music trade. He was very clear and kept things simple. I truly enjoy his instructions, can't wait for the next lesson.

This was my first lesson ever and Billy was extremely patient, took the time to teach me music theory. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Billy is a very good and patient teacher. He understands that it takes time to learn something completely new (which for me is music theory) especially when besides the lessons you also work full time. My previous teacher didn't have that patience which makes me value Billy's approach even more. He will do his best for you to understand whatever topic you're struggling with. Highly recommend

Professional jazz trombonist with 5 years of teaching experience! Especially experienced in teaching beginners.
Proficient in teaching all styles of music to all ages and levels.
Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Instead of simply training students to read music and play notes, I prefer to teach my students to think, play, and act like musicians. My lessons feature improvisation skills, sight-reading, playing by ear, building a strong technical foundation and music analysis.

I assure you will see leaps of improvement by working with me!

About Alejandro
I'm a professional trombonist with a strong musical background: I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Performance - Trombone from City College of New York and Michigan State University. I have 7 years of experience teaching students of all ages and levels, and I have been working as a freelancer since I was 17.

I originally arrived in NYC from Argentina at 9-years old. The rich musical environment of NYC allowed me to study and absorb all styles of music at a young age.

I have had the opportunities to study with trombone masters such as Michael Dease, Jason Jackson and Wycliffe Gordon. These learning experiences directly affect the development of my students.

I currently play in a wide range of musical situations all over NYC, from jazz combos and big bands, to musicals and classical orchestras and even other genres such as
Reggea, Ska, Rock, Pop etc.

As my student, you will develop critical skills that will help build a strong musical foundation which will define you as a musician. I will evaluate the level in which you currently are and provide a clear defined path in order to reach our goals.
One thing I strongly focus on is your love for music. My goal is not only to see you progress, but to love the music and have fun with what you are playing.

I can't wait to work with you and help you reach your ultimate goals!

Richmond, VA

I have been playing Brass instruments, specializing in Trombone, since 2004. I love teaching music, and welcome all ages to come out and try and toot their horn. I'll build a personalized lesson plan based on the students wants, and needs, and I'll do my absolute best to get you where ever you want to go musically.

About Rachel
I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society), qualified for district band through audition, and was ranked in the top 10% of trombone players in the state of Virginia. Throughout my education I developed a working knowledge of brass instruments, music theory, a variety of playing styles, and much more.

After high school, I pursued and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University, while continuing my musical career, playing in bands offered by the school as well as in the Richmond area. I am currently active with the ACCA Temple Shiners in their German band
, The Sauerkrauts, 100% of whose proceeds go to benefit children in Shriner-owned hospitals.

I have been giving private lessons since 2006, and have a deep passion for musical education. I feel learning to play an instrument enriches life in a way few other things can.

Let's have fun and rock out! These are the standards by which I measure my own success both on the stage as a professional musician and as an educator in the classroom. The notes on the page aren't going anywhere and they'll still be there to practice for next week if more study time is needed. We'll instead spend the bulk of our time learning how to speak the language of music and how to communicate with others through improvisation. Developing technique, embouchure, style, posture, and other fundamentals will help us to become masters of our instrument and speak more fluently. If we're able to jam out on our own creative musical ideas and share them with others while having fun then our time together was a success.

About Michael
I believe that we can come together and use community music as a vehicle to address some of the global challenges that we’re facing today. Every single person in the world deserves to be treated with respect, kindness, laughter and love. Art shows us all of the good that humans are capable of and we can move forward through divisive times. It's up to all of us to do a better job communicating, collaborating, and educating each other. The arts should be a safe space with an equal platform available to all for sharing ideas and I've committed my life to making the world a better place through music.

I received my bachelor's degree in Trombone Performance from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2013. Since then, I have been one of the founding members of a 27 piece punk/funk brass band out of Lowell, MA known as "The Party Band"
as well as a 9 piece funk cover band out of Boston, MA called "PK and the Mighty Seven." When I'm not practicing, freelancing, or teaching I enjoy hanging out on the porch with the neighborhood cats.

15 years experience teaching and playing Bass and Tenor Trombone professionally. I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Trombone and Bass Trombone Performance from The Juilliard School and Northwestern University, respectively. My experience at these schools has exposed me to the very best teaching and playing in all the world of Low Brass, which is reflected in my own playing and teaching!
I am very passionate about performing and teaching, and especially about leading others to love music and the process of self-betterment, be that on the "horn" or anything in life! In our lessons I will seek to understand your motivations in studying low brass playing/music and tailor my instruction to best help you achieve your goals; be that to develop superior ability on the instrument, nail your all-state/college auditions, develop your overall musicianship, feed your passion for music and artistry, etc.
In short, my students can expect world-class instruction and pedagogy developed ...

About Andre
I am a professional Bass and Tenor trombonist and Low Brass clinician, teacher and pedagogue. I graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelors of Music and Northwestern University with a Masters of Music in Trombone Performance. I am currently engaged in post-graduate studies at University of Denver's Lamont School of Music, earning an Artist Diploma.

As a working musican, I currently freelance in the Denver/Boulder area, regularly performing with the Colorado Symphony, Boulder Philharmonic, Opera Colorado, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, and other world-class ensembles. I have performed in venues all around the world, including Carnegie Hall in NYC, Symphony Hall in Chicago, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I teach all low brass instruments (Tenor/Bass Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium) and students of all ages. Mu
ch of my own pedagogy and teaching method is developed from my years of study and exposure to some of the absolute best orchestral and jazz brass teachers and pedagogues of our time.

Students can expect to receive world-class instruction in the fundamentals of brass playing (sound production, embouchure development, tone quality, rock-solid time/rhythm, intonation, etc), as well as guidance toward the development of musicianship and artistry (phrasing, style, the concept of SINGING with your brass sound). Ultimately, I am a very diagnostic teacher. That is to say, my primary MO is to determine my students' motivations on their instrument, and to craft our lessons and my instruction to best guide them toward achieving their goals! If you are interested in playing low brass at the highest possible level, want to nail All-state/college/professional auditions, or just interested in playing for fun, or ANYTHING in between: I can help you achieve your goals!
