Trombone teacher for 10 year old

Jan 2010

I'm looking for a trombone teacher for my 10 year old son. I checked the archives but the most recent recommendation is over two years old. He's a rank beginner, but he likes playing the few swing songs he's been given by the school brass teacher. Thanks. ramisima

I highly recommend Becca Burrington in North Oakland. She has many years teaching and performance experience and in kind and patient. bb_tbone [at] -Sarah (music teacher and mom)

Trombone teacher for 11 year old

May 2007

My 11-year-old has been playing the trombone for a year. We're seeking a teacher in the North Berkeley area.... any recommendations? brass parent

Very cool to have a horn player in the family. I suggest contacting your local public school, if you go to one. There's a band teacher named Duane Worm at Bret Harte Middle School in Oakland who can probably give you a teacher's name. Also Best Music downtown on Broadway -- they offer lessons or would know who to contact. Also A music on 14th Street, but I think they're more adult oriented. You might have to try a few lessons with different folks to see who fits best. Enjoy! Bonnie
