I am available for private and group instruction for grades 6-12 and adult hobbyists. I am based in Oakland, CA and my private lesson rates are $40/half hour and $80/hour. Rates are negotiable.
While shelter-in-place orders are imposed due to the coronavirus outbreak, I offer online lessons, primarily via Zoom conferencing.
My lesson materials are catered to the student's age and level. Together, we will on fundamental techniques, solos, etudes, duets, discovering great recordings to listen to and more.
Currently, I am the trombone instructor for James Logan High School, and a coach through San Francisco Symphony's Music and Mentors program. I have taught masterclasses and ensembles at the Pacific Summer Music Camp, sectionals through the Oakland Youth Symphony, and was previously the trombone coach through Young Musician's Choral Orchestra.
Along with my brass quintet, Brass Over Bridges, I am available to coordinate student outreach performances and masterclasses.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions including rate inquiries.
