About Marcus

I have been teaching privately for almost twenty years. I have a Bachelor's in Trombone Jazz Performance from Valdosta State University, and a Master's In Trombone Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I have had a private studio of Improv/Trombonist since 1996 that ranged from 5-10 students and ages from 10-51.I also had two years teaching ensembles at University of Nebraska as a Graduate Assistant. I believe in a no-nonsense approach to teaching. I like to make the student figure out the answers to their questions by asking them the right questions, so they will have a better grasp of the concept we are addressing.

I am a educator, but I am also a professional musician with a ton of performance experience. I celebrated my debut release "Facing East". Notable performances include the Birthday of St. Petersburg Russia in 2001, the Klipieda Jazz Festival in 2003, and the Jimmy Carter Summer Concert Series in 2008. As a member of Janelle Monae's ArchOrchestra, Marcus Lewis performed at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, the 2011 Glastonbury Festival, the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Concert and the 2010 North Sea Jazz Festival. I have also played at the 2010 New Orleans Jazz Fest while touring with the Ohio Players. Also, I was awarded the 2008 Betty Carter Jazz Residency and Outstanding Soloist at the Wichita Jazz Festival in 2003.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
