My Teaching experience goes back to my College experience at UofA (Arizona). I gave lessons to Elementry, High School and College students in Jazz, Blues, Brass Bands and Salsa music. I help with technique, passion for playing, fundamentals, music history, sight reading, sounds etc. I give them a higher appreciate for music, and Trombone while increase their personal growth and confidence.
I set up a program for each student. We go over: Warming up, breathing, techniques, scales, fundamentals, sight-reading, fun, soloing, pitch, sounds, trombone appreciation, and warming down etc Music Schedule for tutoring. I am opening during the holiday season from December 21- January 19, 2015 During the mornings, days and evenings.
I have both a strict and fun teaching style. I am strict about fundamentals, techniques, sight reading, breathing, scales, etc I am fun when it comes to soloing, freestyle, music appreciation, etc
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.
