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

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.

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.

The trombone is a colorful and exciting instrument played in many styles of music throughout the world, from jazz and classical to funk and soul to reggae, afro-beat, and Latin American music. In addition to covering the basic technical requirements of the instrument, I'm particularly interested in the many genres in which the trombone can be found, and I like to focus on the styles of music that most interest and challenge my students. I began playing soprano trombone over ten years ago, and I have taught tenor trombone privately and in public school programs for several years. I encourage the use of long tones, air support, and brass calisthenics to improve tone, increase range and endurance, and work towards greater flexibility.

Bobby Spellman is a very skilled music teacher. We met him when my son was in the fifth grade and had just started playing the French horn. Bobby came to our house every week and did a truly fantastic job helping my son learn a really tough instrument. He has taught my son for three years--switching to Zoom classes during the pandemic--and established a terrific rapport him which enabled him to improve significantly and develop a real passion for his instrument.

The number one rule I follow is to treat every student as an individual and discover what they need to be successful. I currently teach my 12 year old brother and I've found that in order to get the best from him that I really do have to be the older brother sometimes instead of a teacher. I've seen this transfer to my other students and their parents have not only seen improvement on their horns, but also an improvement in their social skills and attitude. This, I believe, is what makes lessons with me a valuable experience for your child or developing student!

Chris will demonstrate with his trumpet how a piece should be played. He advises on breathing and other techniques. He’s encouraging and uses constructive criticism. I look forward each week to my lessons with Chris.
Michael
Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!

My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found 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!"

"Amazing teacher who was patient and kind with a 13 year old who decided to learn an instrument without the benefit of a band class in middle school. 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."
