Private Trombone Teacher

Trombone:
A musical instrument in the brass family where sound is produced when the player's vibrating lips (embouchure) cause the air column inside the instrument to vibrate. Nearly all trombones have a telescoping slide mechanism that varies the length of the instrument to change the pitch. I will start with the basics. Proper breathing, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, theory, and improvisation.

About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

My approach in teaching is firmly grounded in developing a healthy and self-driven practice culture in my students. As a practicing teacher, I strive tirelessly to lead by example. I ensure my students feel empowered after each lesson and hold them accountable to commit to their own daily grinds. For working with a new student, my typical process is to begin with the end in mind. According to the particular needs and expectations of the student, we discuss attainable and measurable goals for a given period of time. Especially during times of difficulty, I encourage my students to follow their curiosity and guard their motivation as we share the journey of music making together.

About Tommy

As a strong believer in the life-changing power of music, my teaching is driven by my purpose to serve and empower students of all backgrounds to realize their full potential and to leave a positive impact on the lives of others. Currently a doctoral candidate in brass performance at Boston Universi

During the last 6 months, Tommy has been a wonderfully patient, kind, and knowledgeable teacher to my 12 year-old son. He focused on my son's particular needs and provided lessons he put together to focus on areas to improve his skills. Moreover, Tommy is a talented musician, with the skill and experience to teach any level of trombone. I am very glad I chose Tommy to mentor my son in trombone.
Arnaud
During my time with Tommy, he has helped me improve in many areas. I feel that I learn and improve every lesson. Tommy is committed to teaching and points things out where I can improve upon. While teaching, Tommy uses many analogies that help me better understand what I'm doing wrong and how I can fix it.

Chris is a fantastic instructor! Not only did he work with our son to teach him the basics (as someone new to an instrument having never played before), he also motivated him and took a genuine interest in his progress. He does a fantastic job and is a skilled instructor!... and did it all on-line due to COVID and overcame that obstacle too!

Chris has been great with my middle school band student teaching/coaching the fundamentals and making trumpet fun again. My kiddo looked forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys band again! His confidence level while playing has soared. Definitely recommend.

Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.

Dr. Cortazzo is an amazing instructor and one of the best bass trombone instructors in the country. He taught my son bass trombone for 7 years. His expert knowledge of music theory, jazz and classical bass trombone repertoire are top notch. He has excellent contacts in the music industry from his many years of playing in the country's premiere jazz and classical groups. He knows how to motivate his students to do their best. He consistently challenged my son to audition and participate in the region's best music groups and win state and national competitions. With Dr. Cortazzo's guidance and encouragement, my son was able to get a music scholarship to attend a prestigious college and music school and follow his dreams to become a professional musician. I can't recommend Dr. Cortazzo enough!

Dr. Cortazzo is an incredible educator who really cares for the growth of his students. I have learned so much from him in my time in his studio and I know there is still so much more for him to show me!

Mr. Jim Lutz taught with me at a music school in Grand Rapids Michigan. This teacher is the whole package - Jim has the warm and patient personality of a caring educator on top of the technical knowledge, experience and world class skills of a professional performer. You simply would not be able to find a better instructor for a beginner, intermediate or advanced student of music. Well worth your time to reach out to Jim and study with the best. Very tech skilled - his virtual lessons would be just as valuable as in-person so I encourage any prospective student to take advantage of the opportunity to study with this first rate teacher and professional artist. Feel free to contact me with any question.

"I am a high school student who has been taking trombone lessons for four years, and I have been playing for six years. I was having trouble on this difficult piece that had a wide range of notes, and I needed help with this because I had an upcoming state competition. Eventually, it was recommended to me to find a professional who taught at a collegiate level, and that was when I went online and found Mr. Gallo. I decided to sign up with him for six lessons just to see what I needed to work, but when I started taking lessons with him, I realized how much improvement I needed to make on my trombone. He had denoted instantly in my first lesson what I was doing wrong. Thanks to Mr. Gallo's phenomenal teaching, I have embraced a more acute and accurate practice routine as well as a better embrasure which has assisted me in unlocking a higher range on my trombone than I have ever reached before. The practice technicalities he has taught me that have become very advantageous to me, and will be easily instituted in more complicated pieces in the future."

"My son, Evan had one of the best music lesson experiences he ever could have had after years of lessons with just a few lessons with Mr. G! The level of expertise and instruction that can be delivered to your child in one lesson is truly second to none. Your child will see instant improvements in the quality of their performances if the skills and instruction Mr. G demonstrates and converses to your child is implemented. In just 4 lessons, my son went from an average trombone player to well enough to go on to a difficult state competition. He could not have achieved that success without the careful and guided instruction of Mr. G. He truly is an outstanding instructor and is worth is weight in gold!"

"I am a very mature(read old) student and I had been wanting to learn to play the trombone. The catch was that I had never taken lessons and could not read music. Pasquale was absolutely unflapped by this. He had the patience of a saint, had the ability to make me feel comfortable and was 1000% encouraging in my quest. Oh and also by the way...he knows his stuff and is gifted in his ability to teach it in a way that I could understand and be comfortable. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!!!"

"A top notch educator and performer!

I have had the pleasure of working with Ethan for two years at Stokes Forest Music Camp in northern New Jersey. This program takes place in July for two weeks and consists of talented students from ages 12 to 17. They are involved in many great activities such as orchestra, band, chamber ensembles, rock band, jazz band, and musical theatre. As a fellow teacher here at Stokes (French horn and Music Theory), Ethan and I have joined forces to promote a fun and effective teaching environment for the camp's Brass Ensemble. Ethan was the driving force behind this group, and without his enthusiasm and patience, this ensemble surely would not succeed! His teaching methods kept the students involved, and they definitely had lots of fun last year performing New Orleans jazz (without music!).
I feel that what makes Ethan stand out as a great teacher is that he is creative and connects well with his students. He always maintains a positive outlook and has a wonderful personality! Keep up the good work, Ethan! You will do great things as a music teacher!"

As a colleague of Chris' I can heartily recommend his teaching to any trombonists wishing to hone their skills as musicians. Chris focuses on the individual needs of each student, working to tailor his lessons to meet their specific needs and face their unique challenges. His attention to detail and patience helps each student build a strong foundation in musicality and fantastic brass playing. I recommend him highly as both a superb educator and performer!"
