I am motivated teaher with 40 years of teaching experience in instrumental music as well as church choirs and concerts. I studied with the best pro. tuba players in NY in college from the Metropolitan Opera and American Symphony. I have performed in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Rose Parade, and on live radio WQXR in New York. I currently am the instrumental teacher at Bergen Community College (2002-present) and the tuba instructor at another College (2011-present). I have played the trumpet and tuba for over 50 years.
I have taught all ages from third grade to elderly adult and can adapt to any situation. I love to instill a love for music in a young person so they can enjoy it for many years and possibly go on to biggerr and better things. I have Bergen students who have gone on to 4 year colleges to continue their studies.
I use a variety of published methods depending on the age of the student and their current level.
I prefer to let students advance at their own pace so that they don't feel rushed and get discouraged. For younger students/beginners I keep an open line to the parents for extra support. I bring my instrument to the lesson and demonstrate as I teach. I center on encouragement and emphasizing a student's successes.
Mr. Gordon S. is very patient! His teaching skills are excellent, my son is benefittin greatly from these lessons. I would highly recommended his services!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
