Experienced LA trombonist with Masters degree – Private lessons in trombone, trumpet, improvisation, sight reading etc.

Methodology

The lessons are structured and built around the needs of each individual student. We begin by exploring strengths and weaknesses, and then customize materials and methods based on this. At the center of my pedagogical philosophy is a style of learning built on positive reinforcement, using methods that are supported by research on brain development and learning. For older students that are more driven, we also spend more time on developing effective strategies for individual practice, and together we set clear developmental goals.

Background

I have solid and extensive experience in teaching instrument technique, improvisation, and sight reading. I've been teaching since 2012, ranging from beginners all the way to highly advanced levels, with focus either on jazz or classical music. I've worked as a freelance musician in a multitude of genres all over the world, and taught both privately and at several universities. Many of my students are now working musicians in their own right.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

2018 – Today – Private studio teacher in Los Angeles, CA.
Teaching a wide range of subjects, including tenor & bass trombone, trumpet, improvisation and arranging from my own studio in LA. Student ages range from 8 to 64.

2016 – 2017 – Lecturer of Jazz Trombone at University of Texas, Arlington TX.
Teaching duties included private lessons in jazz trombone, brass pedagogy for education majors, and directing two of the school jazz ensembles. One of these ensembles was formed on my initiative, for which I would select and arrange musical material, along with rehearsing them each week. In addition to this, the position entailed creating audio and video for promotional materials, for which the ensemble had several recording sessions each semester.

2015 – 2016 – Private lesson teacher in jazz trombone at Carroll Senior High School, Southlake TX.
Lesson content ranged from basic fundamentals of the instrument and practice methodology to intermediate harmonic study and analysis, solo transcriptions, ear training, and melodic approaches to improvisation.

2014 – 2015 Jazz trombone fundamentals teacher at University of North Texas.
An introductory course to the jazz language, this class covered a wide range of essential skills. Harmonic analysis, scales, ear training, time feel, stylistic devices and phrasing in a variety of jazz styles, sight-reading, large and small ensemble playing, instrumental extended techniques, and jazz improvisation.

2013 – 2015 Lab band director at University of North Texas.
For this 19-piece big band, duties included directing rehearsals four days a week, selecting repertoire, instructing and coaching both rhythm and horn players in their ensemble playing and on their improvisational content. It also included leading sectionals and lectures about sight-reading. Repertoire included a wide range of music from traditional to modern big band music, such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, Gil Evans, Bob Mintzer, Bob Brookmeyer, and Neil Slater.
