I am a professional funk/rock trombone player in the Boston area and perform around the country regularly (when there's not a pandemic…). I run a 28 person brass band in Lowell and have taken us from playing small bar gigs to touring the country once a year. I also play a lot of weddings and events so I am constantly working on my chops to stay fresh for the next gig. I'm versatile and have many skills to offer and would love to work with you on whatever your musical goals are and together I'm sure we can achieve great things. Feel free to reach out anytime and we can at least discuss what you're looking for and see if we are a good fit for each other.
I enjoy the people in the community of music and the great things that we accomplish together through collaboration. I believe in constant education and think that every day and every moment is a learning opportunity in someway or another. I'm a good person who really cares about the interest and well-being of others and will do whatever it takes to make sure that we achieve and go beyond any of our musical goals.
Mike has really helped me over the years playing with him. He has not only a solid foundation in the physical mechanics of playing trombone, but also has a highly tuned ear. He has personally helped me with my own intonation, focusing on playing music as a "whole phrase" rather than a collection of separate parts, and following musical interpretations.
Mike is a great musician and teacher and super knowledgable. He's patient and developed plan of learning with me that fir my exact needs. Highly recommend!
Mike is one of the most phenomenal musicians I’ve learned from! He has a great talent for teaching people of all ages and experience levels. It doesn’t matter if you’re a high level musician or an absolute beginner, Mike will be able to help you grow as a musician.
I’ve been learning from mike for about 10 years now. Every time we get together I learn a new trick In musicality or trombone playing. He’s always full of advice and is a really sharp guy.
When working with a new student I like to have a discussion before we begin any sort of formal training to figure out what their goals are and work together to come up with a game plan for success.
I am a professional funk/rock trombone player and freelance regularly around the greater New England area. I have taught trombone lessons privately in the past and I've also worked through the University of Massachusetts Lowell to help their community music masters program.
Due to the current pandemic I am open to discussion on pricing depending on each students needs as well as their budget.
