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.

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 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.

My daughter just had her first lesson and Elizabeth was patient and really helpful. Great experience so far!
Harvey
The Best! Elizabeth is both patient and at the same time challenging. My son is learning that work, and effort invested, lead to measurable improvement. And he is enjoying playing the trombone!
Bethany S.
I have worked with Elizabeth for years and she is a fantastic colleague. I'm not sure if I've met anyone else to match her incredible work ethic.You can expect very creative and effective lessons from her - she has a knack for inventive problem solving that makes musical improvement really fun and transformative for her students. While she is extremely friendly and warm, she is also informative and knowledgeable - a great balance to look for in a music instructor!

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!

"I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books."

"After a year away from playing the trombone, my son needed to get prepared to audition for the high school jazz band over the summer. Alejandro helped him get back up to speed and learn more about how what it means to be a jazz musician. Alejandro is able to connect and personalize lessons, and he is very flexible. My son made the jazz band, and is continuing work with Alejandro to help him advance."

"Erich is an energetic teacher and a true professional. He helped my son improve his tone within minutes of his guidance. It was especially helpful to hear him play during the lesson, so you can hear the desired tone of the trombone. Erich sent me an email summary of the lesson to recap the lesson highlights, I was very impressed with this addition to detail!

I highly recommend Erich as a fun, patient, and wise teacher."
