Music Lessons with Joe Cheslak

From: $30.00

Learn music with a pro trombone player (Tiger Chung Lee, Blue Rootz), multi-instrumentalist, low-brass music educator, and instrument maintenance & repair tech.

Learn how to be a great individual AND ensemble player.

Like all good music teachers, my core instruction focuses on the basics, including how to develop proper instrumental technique, good warm-up routines and practice habits, and music theory and ear training. But from the beginning, I like to lay the groundwork for the fun stuff—all of the reasons I got into music in the first place! Solid fundamentals have allowed me to thrive as an arranger for horn sections, an improviser, and a transcriber. No matter what kind of music you like to listen to, no matter what players you want to learn how to imitate, it’s never to early to start pursuing your passions.
