Online Trombone Teacher

As a teacher, I want to inspire passion. The trombone is my passion and I want to share it with you. Music is about creativity and expression and I want to help every one of my students experience this. I cater all my lessons to the student, but also want to help students establish a strong grasp of the fundamentals of music and the trombone. I hold a Master of Music in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone from the University of Miami, have worked in a variety of settings and styles, have been teaching for over 5 years, and can't wait to share my experiences with you!

Hayden meets weekly with our 13 year old son for trombone lessons. He shows patience as he learns the material and works with him to keep trying until he gets it and gives him actionable items to work on between sessions. Hayden also does a nice job engaging our son by providing music to learn that is interesting to him and even has gone so far as to compose trombone music of songs that are interesting to our kid. He has been an excellent teacher and we plan to continue our weekly lessons with Hayden.

I want to once again write a testimonial for Hayden Maple. Had is a gifted musician and instructor. He has worked at my pace, been accomodating during an illness and travel of mine. and he has understood my goals and tailored his teacher towards them. I encourage anyone seeking an instructor to give Hayden a shot.
David
Hayden is pleasant, well-informed and motivating. He is a good teacher and shares his tips on how to improve. I will be signing up for more lessons! I am actually making music with Hayden's help.

Learning an instrument should be both fun and motivating. If something isn't working, we'll take a different approach to accomplish the same goal. Everyone learns in their own unique way, and lessons should reflect that!

Online Trombone Teacher

Over my 20 years of playing trumpet professionally, I have picked up enough trombone to offer quite a lot to trombone students! I believe the fundamentals of all great brass playing are the same, and I can get you off to a fantastic start if you are a beginner or intermediate player :).

About Caleb

Caleb moved from his hometown of Wichita, Kansas, to Chicago in 2008 to attend DePaul University, where he received his Bachelor’s in Trumpet Performance studying under Matt Lee and Tage Larsen. Since then, Caleb has picked up a variety of regular gigs across a wide spectrum of styles, genres, and

Caleb is awesome. He has single handedly made us a convert of remote music lessons! He communicates extremely well with younger kids, even though he has such extensive knowledge of music. My 10 year old son was super hesitant to start learning how to play the trumpet, but my son is all smiles throughout the entire lesson, and is self motivated to practice everyday! Caleb is an absolute gem.
Stan
I had played the trumpet in high school but had not played it since then for 40 years. I was wanting to get back into it to play some specific songs with some friends that play drums, guitars etc. Caleb was the perfect match to teach me the basics again, some music theory and then helping me learn and play the songs I wanted to play. He is so great to work with and will take you in any direction you want to go. And, he is so awesome playing the trumpet. He's amazing. He knows what he is talking about and can back it up. I highly recommend him to anyone at any level.
Jacob P.
Caleb is an excellent teacher! He was patient and encouraging with my teenage son who can sometimes get very discouraged when he finds his work challenging. I hope some of Caleb's positive attitude rubs off on him. The improvement in my son's trombone playing after one lesson was impressive..

Online Trombone Teacher

Trombone is, and should be, FUN. It's my main instrument, and I have 20 years of experience: both my Bachelor's and my Postgraduate Diploma are in Trombone Performance. If you want someone who knows the instrument inside and out, who can help you with intricate technical issues, and who is well acquainted with trombone repertoire and how our instrument is used in different styles and ensembles, I've got the knowledge and the skills -- and I'll do it all in a way that helps you LOVE playing.

About Holly

My 20 years of musical experience taught me that JOY is as important as knowledge and technique. We'll pursue a learning trajectory that suits you and your goals (large or small!), all while providing you with the encouragement to enjoy the process as well as the results.

She is a great teacher and every time I had a lesson, I was excited to learn something new. I improved a lot and joined an orchestra where I am advanced because of her lessons. She has a lot of experience and is very nice to work with. I recommend her a lot."
