Trombone

I offer private lessons in trombone. These lessons will guide the student as to the proper techniques of tone production, increasing range, articulation, phrasing, intonation, practice techniques and performance techniques. I am a professional trombonist and this is how I make the majority of my living. My performing and practicing experience is of great help to my students as they progress as brass instrument musicians. I also teach at the college level at San Francisco State University, Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College. I have been teaching at the college level since 2001. I have been playing trombone for 40 years and this experience is also very helpful to my students.

I am a professional musician which is how I make the majority of my living. I use this experience in my teaching which greatly helps my students to understand the process of learning a brass instrument more completely.
