Tuba is recommended for ages 10+ due to the size and weight of the instrument. Tuba lessons is a great way for students to learn a valved instrument and has the same finger positions as a Euphonium and Trumpet, so becoming a multi-instrumentalist is very achievable.Show More Show Less
Teaching since January 2011
Teaches students aged 5+
Hi, my name is Jake and I am a professional trombone player in Brisbane, QLD. I started out on piano aged 5, where I undertook many AMEB exams receiving mostly high distinctions. At age 10, I commenced the trombone which I then took to the QLD Conservatorium of Music to obtain my Bachelor of Music Performance.
As a teacher, I have taught since 2011, teaching students brass instruments and piano. I am highly experienced in taking students through the exam syllabus for both piano and brass instruments.
As a professional musician, I regularly perform with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra as a guest principal performer, and am the resident bass trombone player of Australia's best brass band, the Brisbane Excelsior Band.
I look forward to hearing from you to help you begin, or continue, your musical journey.
