Private Tuba Teacher

I am a professional musician based out of the Washington D.C. area. I am currently a tuba player in The United States Army Band "Pershing's Own."

I believe that having fun, being able to clearly share your musical ideas with others, and being a well-rounded person are an integral to being a musician.

Every student has different goals and desires and I strive to create a specifically tailored course of study with each of my students.

Whether you are just starting out, or are an advanced player, I would be happy to work with you!

I am so glad I had the opportunity to work with Zach. He is fun, understanding, and knowledgeable. I am so grateful for everything he has taught me in such a short amount of time. If I get the chance again, I will definitely be signing up for more lessons.
Thank you very much Zach!

Brian is very passionate about music, and teaches with details. Lessons are organized and informational. Highly recommend!
Cliff
We hired Brian to work with our barely 3 year old to play the drums we got him for his birthday. He loves it! We don’t have any grand aspirations for him, but he likes to bang around and we wanted to give him some direction to see if he latched on to it. Our main objective is that he has fun. Brian is GREAT with him and he looks forward to it every week. 10/10!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Pasquale does what great teachers do - he meets the student at the student's level. I'm 64 and have been an advanced beginner my whole life. Pasquale has given me reason to think I will become a real trumpet player in the not too distant future.

He makes it real clear that I have to do the work but he is providing a very solid path to follow.

I strongly recommend as a terrific teacher.
Camden
My 14 yr old son just switched from trumpet to tuba and started tuba lessons with Mr. Gallo today. Mr. Gallo seems very knowledgeable not only about teaching tuba, but also about trumpet and other brass instruments so he knows how to help my son transition from one instrument to the other in the best way. It was a great first lesson, looking forward to more.
Lenny M.
Very knowledgeable. Pasquale gently urged me to consider doing some “work” which is to say the very exercises I have avoided for most of my life. Sometimes you just need a good coach. My first impression is that Pasquale might be that coach.

I enjoyed the lesson.

As my first tubist mentor he was very patient and knowing. He has given me more insight about my tuba in areas where I lack giving me more confidence in my playing. I will for sure be working with him in the near future.

"I took tuba lessons from Brian for a few years, and I highly recommend him. He is an excellent and passionate music educator. He is great at keeping students challenged and motivated, and he has a cheerful and fun personality. Thanks to Brian's help, I made first chair All-State tuba, won a couple of soloist competitions, and was accepted to multiple colleges for music performance. With those kinds of results, I wholeheartedly recommend Brian for private music lessons."

"My son started with Mr. Gallo at the beginning of summer and we have decided to continue into the school year. He can easily read each students musical ability and creates a lesson plan accordingly. His critiques, while kindly, are thorough as he strives to get the best out of students.
My son enjoys the lessons and has improved in sound quality and technique. Web based lessons have worked out great for us as my son plays the tuba. Mr. Gallo has been flexible with the schedule which we appreciate. We highly recommend Mr. Gallo and the Take Lessons website/platform."

"Jeremy has been great in relating to my junior high age son playing tuba. Developing a rapport via online lessons was a natural progression for the YouTube generation. Jeremy was encouraging and helped develop and grow technical skills to move from last chair to first chair and promoted to next band in the next semester! The ease and flexibility in scheduling allows him to continue in his lessons through busy concert seasons. Looking forward to adding his younger brother to the lesson with Jeremy soon!"
