Overview:

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. A little about my self, I just recently graduated from the Hartt School of Music with a Masters in Trombone Performance, where I performed various kinds of music with many different ensembles, from the 20/20 chamber ensemble, to the Symphony Orchestra, to the "Foot in the Door" new music ensemble. I moved to the Boston area upon graduation and I have set up my studio in Quincy, MA. I have been teaching trombone and euphonium for going on six years now. I am a very passionate teacher when it come to music as I believe it is extremely important to a child's or anybody's growth and education!

EXPERIENCE

I have been giving private lessons on trombone for going on six years. I began during my time at the University of Connecticut where I gave lessons as a part of the school of education's community division. I taught students from the surrounding town's middle and high schools. throughout the rest of my time at UConn as well as at the Hartt School, I have given lessons both as a part of a university, and privately in my own studio and at student's homes. I find the most important thing to teaching lessons is making sure the student is improving on a week to week basis, but is also having fun at the same time! After all, if what your doing isn't fun, why do it? The easiest way to have fun is to play and work on music that the student wants to play, It can't all be etudes and exercises can it? As long as the the student is having fun, they will stay motivated and keep the drive for learning alive.

METHODS USED

It depends on the age of the student, but there are plenty of method books and pieces that can both teach a student music theory and notation, as well as their performance skill. With beginners its perfect to start with the Rubank series from Beginner-Intermediate. Many students are given the "Standard of Excellence" series by their school teacher and that series works as well. I believe these books are a great start, but can get old fast. I think by 7th grade a student should be moving on to graded performance pieces and more standard method books like the Rochut and Arban series. Of utmost importance however, is that the student is having fun, so I plan my lessons around what the student is interested in to keep the lesson engaging and fun!

LESSON STYLE

The reason a student desires lessons is because they at some point, began to develop a passion for music. Through lessons, I hope to help that passion blossom and teach that student how to best express themselves through music. My teaching style again goes back to finding out what and how the student wants to learn. Fitting the standard curriculum doesn't work for some students, a teacher has to be able to be flexible when it comes to teaching different students. Though the standard books and exercises will most likely implemented, it is important to introduce those, and move past them at a students pace.

Sam is great, very patient and knowledgeable about his craft. He works well with my son and my son is excelling in his comfort around his playing. We are pleased and would recommend.

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.
