I have been playing Brass instruments, specializing in Trombone, since 2004. I love teaching music, and welcome all ages to come out and try and toot their horn. I'll build a personalized lesson plan based on the students wants, and needs, and I'll do my absolute best to get you where ever you want to go musically.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Private Trombone Teacher

I have studied with some of the finest trombonists in the world, performed in the nation's top orchestras, and am firmly committed to excellence in the trombone field. Music is one of the most indescribably powerful and moving things in the entire world, and I want students to, above all, simply enjoy playing and experiencing this gift. The trombone is, of course, merely a means to an end in this regard; yet its rich, powerful, as well as versatile sound is what particularly draws me to it. My approach to playing the trombone is simple: producing the greatest sound on every note, as easily as possible. I think it is necessary to have the best sound that you can possibly make on the trombone in your head from day one, and to this end, I strive to play as much as possible for and along with the student so that they may develop their own ideal sound concept. I couple this with instruction on all the other fundamentals of trombone playing and music making, such as technique, scales, ...

Grant Reed has the right combination in his approach to teaching: patience, enthusiasm, and the ability to analyze, troubleshoot, and motivate. He has had extensive training. He also has a lot of teaching and performing experience. Grant knows what works! His manner is calm and empathetic.

Grant was terrific, and easy, friendly for our first lesson. My son was comfortable and attuned to Grant's ideas and instruction. I think Grant's teaching method and perspective on music and the trombone is effective. W look forward to more sessions. ~Pete

Grant has been an excellent instructor for my son who is just finishing his first year learning trombone. Grant is patient and really cares about his student’s progress. I feel my son is more engaged and enthusiastic about playing trombone under Grant’s tutorage. Highly recommend.

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.
John J Conlon
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 name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Went way above and beyond to work with my son and help him with the things that he struggled with. We are very pleased and thankful to Mr. Jerry.
Michelle
Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

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!
Amy
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!

"Fantastic Experience!

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!"

I am very impressed with the tools she introduced him to, the lessons she laid out for him to accomplish on his own and how she left him motivated to get started right away on practicing."

"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!!!"
