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!

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.
Raciel
Hayden is a great instructor very professional, dedicated, a truly pro in his craft. He is a versatile musician with an extensive, proven background in all sort of styles that definitely will help anyone interested in learning, advancing, and perfecting the skills required to play the trombone to reach their goals, no matter what level your are at the moment.
Let’s be real, if you really want to master or at least play decently well any instrument (the trombone in this case with all its technical challenges) you need a mentor and here we are lucky to have a young, professional, smart musician, with a strong, solid academic formation and a life dedicated to music, specialized in trombone to our entire disposition.
If you are trying to find an instructor to help you out with your musicianship, stop looking because you have already found him. I am sure that you, as I have, will exponentially progress with his help. Thank you Hayden.

When it comes to ACT prep, I provide customized score reports for official ACT diagnostic exams for all my ACT students. This is a powerful tool to analyze test performance, diagnose problem areas, and track progress. It's an advantage that I'm proud to give my students. Other private tutors are not usually able to give this kind of detailed analysis and tutoring companies that offer the service can be incredibly expensive (some charge students just to take diagnostic exams that are available online for free).

"David is fantastic with our daughter. Her lesson with him each week is something she looks forward to and gets so excited about once the day arrives. He is patient, encouraging and challenges her but within her abilities to allow confidence building and her own desire to improve her skills. She had no formal training before David and she impresses me each week with what she's accomplishing with him."

"Mr. Ohashi is a creative and patient art instructor. His classes are enjoyable and he is intuitive in understanding a student's potential, and how best to communicate technique with consideration to a student's unique style. If I encounter an obstacle, he is able to quickly help me understand and demonstrate with fun examples. He makes art engaging and relaxing, and is knowledgeable about the art community in New York City.

I really love Mr. Ohashi's artistic style and feels fortunate to have attended several of his oil painting shows."

My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time.

"Megan is fantastic! I have an art and design background but never studied painting itself. I came to her with two example artists whose styles I love and wanted to work towards. We did weekly classes for a few months - she was able to take me through the basics quickly, progressing more and more into advanced techniques needed to emulate specific effects as we deciphered these artists' works and their processes. She's an active listener, is always prepared, and adapts immediately to your needs as an artist and where you want to go. I'm taking time now to churn out some works and will absolutely be back for further lessons and critiques. "
