Currently I am offering Virtual Lessons due to the coronavirus social distancing going on. I've found FaceTime to be the simplest way, either through an iPhone or iPad, but I am happy to use another service if that works better.
I've been finding that 30 minutes is a good length for online lessons for most students, but I'm happy to schedule a longer time if that is needed. Please contact me for my current rates for online lessons.
Payment can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org via Venmo, PayPal, QuickPay (Zelle), or if needed just contact me and we can make other arrangements. Here's a link to PayPal and Venmo services:
Private lessons taught in your home throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties in New York. I teach trombone, euphonium (baritone horn), tuba, and trumpet for all levels of students.
My teaching style is based around the individual student's needs and interests. Additional topics I always cover include basic technique like scales and flexibilities, tone, musicality, and how to practice! I can assist with picking out and working on music for NYSSMA Solo Festivals, as well as learning jazz improvisation and how to improvise.
Can be setup on a weekly schedule, or scheduled "as-needed." Please contact me through the form below for more information, rates, and availability.
