Each student is different. Education is not a one shoe fits all deal. Each students learns in unique ways, shapes, and forms. Educators should always, always guide the student in setting goals and meeting/exceeding said goals. Celebrating accomplishments is vital to fueling a desire to progress in this mix.

Music has been my passion since grade school.  I began teaching in the fall of 2006 and have engaged with students of all ages.  I welcome the wide eyed enthusiastic child who can't wait to learn and perform, as well as the reluctant, but determined adult who just wants to play for fun or take on a new challenge.   After attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston for 2 years, I joined Merrimack Valley's favorite local band the B. Street Bombers where I performed all over New England playing trombone, piano, percussion and vocals from 1986 to 2005. In 2006 my wife and I moved to California where I was Music Director at the Rock Church from 2007 to 2014.  After a brief stint in San Diego my wife and I recently moved back to Bradford, Mass which is the location of my teaching and recording studio. You can catch me playing locally with the B. Street Bombers, the River City Band and the Lakes Region Big Band. My main instrument in trombone in which I can teach beginner to advanced. However I also teach, bass, drums piano, trumpet, baritone horn and tuba where I am able to teach at a beginner to intermediate level.

For beginning trombone students, I start by introducing the student to the basics: the mouthpiece by itself. Getting comfortable with producing clear, sustatined tones through the mouthpiece is the key to producing smooth, gorgeous melodies on the whole trombone. I start the first 10-15 minutes of every lesson just on the mouthpiece, and then have the student play unmeasured sustained notes (called "long tones"), exploring the range of the instrument. Once the student feels comfortable with the mouthpiece and the long tones, I acquaint the student with fundamentals such as the positions, partials, scales and different types of articulations. For intermediate and advanced students, I focus on repertoire. Applying practices similar to what I have described above, I work with the student on playing repertoire with expression and facility. First I introduce them to short melodies that excercise skills in articulation and phrasing (called "etudes"). Then I take a look at what they might be playing in—for example—their school concert band, orchestra, jazz band, theatre pit or anything else they are involved in. Learning how to apply the skills developed through etudes is essential for playing repertoire with excellence.

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.
