About Hayden M.

My name is Hayden and I am a professional trombonist, educator, cruise agent, composer, and arranger in South Florida. I love performing and I love sharing my passion with you. I currently work both as a freelance musician and as an entertainment specialist for a major cruise music agency. I also toured the U.S., Canada, and Japan with the World-Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, and now I want to impart the lessons I've learned with you. Before Glenn Miller, I completed a Masters Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone Performance from the University of Miami and received a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas in Jazz Trombone Performance. I have been teaching private music lessons for the last five years and I have given public music clinics throughout the United States and Japan. The goal of my lessons is to help students enjoy and understand music in a deeper way. Through listening, singing, clapping, and playing, I take students through material that we both like and help them expand their abilities and understanding. I cater my material to each person's needs while utilizing techniques from the history of music education to improve fundamentals. As a professional musician, I perform a huge variety of styles for many occasions. As a former member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, I am well-versed in traditional and modern jazz styles and improvisation as well as general performance techniques. I have also performed Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and funk styles on many occasions. Between degrees, I performed on the cruise ships of Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines around the world for thousands of guests. During this time, I developed an understanding of classic Motown, Pop, R&B, Broadway Musical, and Rock styles. I was a member of the award-winning Bad Cactus Brass Band in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ and a member of the Los Wedos Salsa band in Denton, TX. I use these experiences to expose students to a wide variety of musical possibilities and techniques to further their journey as musicians.

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.

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.
