I equally cover fundamentals, technique, tone production, solo rep., orchestral music, jazz and anything else the student might be interested in.

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

About Joseph
Local tutor;

Will travel to you, or we can use my studios located in Nassau, Suffolk and all 5 boroughs.

My name is Dr. Joseph M., Ba/Ma/Dma, in Education and Performance. I have reference lists a mile long, (with phone #'s, so you contact my previous and current

clients), full of success story after success story!

22 yrs teaching experience. I have sent thousands of children to Nyssma. Most of my students have scored; "Outstandings", (lvls 1-4), and A+'s, (lvls 5-6). Have gotten students

into All-County,

All State, and All National honor bands. This requires a ranked Nyssma level 6 score of 100.

I have prepared students for auditions to the finest music schools in the world, Julliard, The Curtis Institute, Berklee, etc.

My students have appeared on Broadway, have played at Birdland/the Bluenote, and have won
Grammys.........

I play and teach all styles; Classical, rock, Broadway, jazz,pop, etc.....

I have performed at the world class, A-list level in all the above mentioned styles as well.

I believe it is critical to be humble, down to earth and easy to work with, no matter how accomplished, student, teacher, or parent. :)..................

Every level welcome. Tuba is not recommended as a first instrument. A minimum of one year of study on euphonium is recommended. I have found the most success with using "Accent on Achievement" for beginners. As students progress, more materials will be needed. "Arban's: Complete Method" is standard for advancing students in my curriculum.

About Dan
Dan M. is a freelance musician and private lesson instructor in the Chicago area. Born in the Chicago suburbs, Mr. M. graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Music in euphonium performance, and traveled to Colorado where he earned a Master of Music in trombone performance at the University of Colorado at Boulder. As an active musician, he has performed on trombone and euphonium in many musical groups ranging form wind ensembles and orchestras to brass quintets and other chamber groups. Mr. M. was also a member of the Flatirons Brass Quintet at the University of Colorado, which toured to Beijing, China, and placed in the semi-finals of the internationally known Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.

As a teacher, Mr. M. has been teaching students of a wide range of ages and abilities for over eight years. Some of his
students have been selected to Honor Bands and All-State Bands across the country. Through quickly identifying strengths and weaknesses, and catering to ambitions and desires, his students experience a fun and inspirational learning environment that has been found with much success.

Playing a brass instrument can be a fun and rewarding experience when approached in the correct way. I help all my students develop a good attitude toward playing music, as well as setting them up for success in developing a good sound and technique. I have helped students prepare for all situations, including auditions, adjudications, and yearly band concerts.

About Joel
Hello! I have played brass instruments in many different ensembles over the last 15 years, including concert bands, jazz ensembles, brass quintets, marching bands, drum and bugle corps, and more, and I would like to share these experiences with you as you build your own rewarding experiences with music.

I attended Hofstra University and The Hartt School, earning a B.S. in Music Education and an M.M. in Euphonium Performance, respectively. I am available for students of all ages and backgrounds, and will attend to the goals of each student separately and deliberately.

Concentrated, focused but fun lessons. I will identify the things that you need to work on to improve your planning and give you as much advice as I can on playing that I have learned throughout my on experiences.

Every student has different goals and desires and I strive to create a specifically tailored course of study with each of my students.

Whether you are just starting out, or are an advanced player, I would be happy to work with you!
