In addition to the teaching I do at local universities, I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities in my private music studio. My teaching involves a strong focus on the fundamentals required to develop as both a trombonist and musician. Students will develop excellent technical control of their instrument and improve overall musicianship so they can excel in any genre of music that they choose to pursue. Each lesson is customized to match the student’s current ability and goals.
Some of my current and past students have successfully auditioned for many notable college music programs (Juilliard, Peabody, Berklee, Temple, Rutgers, Delaware, among others), regional honor groups, summer music festivals, and more. I am equally proud of those students who have not pursued music as a career, but have instead fostered a deeper understanding and love of music to carry throughout life alongside their career of choice!
While I prefer to see students on a weekly basis, I’m also available for one-time sessions (e.g., audition preparation) when my schedule allows it. If you are at all hesitant about whether private lessons are right for you or your child, please contact me at any time!
If you’re ready to get started, fill out my short intake form and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

While trombone is my speciality, I do also teach baritone/euphonium & tuba, and have a particular interest in helping students who may be switching to/from another brass instrument. If a student on these instruments reaches an advanced level and I feel they would benefit from a different teacher, I can always recommend colleagues who specialize in these instruments.
While I do only teach low-brass instruments, feel free to reach out if you would like a referral for another music teacher in the area.
I also enjoy teaching students remotely via Zoom! Online music lessons can have their pros & cons, but I have the equipment and technical background to make it work well. Students do not need fancy equipment to benefit from online lessons, but I do help each student tweak some settings in order to make the most of the experience. If you are interested in learning more about this and have questions/concerns, please contact me!
