Dr. Paradis has been teaching private lessons to students ages 10-85 for over 20 years. She offers private lessons to trombone and euphonium students of all ages and levels. Lessons may be in person or over Zoom. Lessons usually last for 30 or 60 minutes. Please contact Dr. Paradis to set up a meeting.
Lesson materials are personally catered to each individual student. Your first lesson will include a discussion about your goals, and Dr. Paradis will craft a plan to help you find success on your unique path. Dr. Paradis has taught students from a wide variety of backgrounds, and with a vast array of personal goals, including:
Resuming playing after several years away from the instrument
Assessing embouchure issues
A typical lesson will include a warm up, a review of assignments, exercises to reinforce good habits, and a preview of new assignments. There will be ongoing discussion and reflection throughout the lesson.
Dr. Paradis wants all of her students to learn to be their own teacher. Discussion in lessons aim to help students to learn how to listen critically, assess issues, and make a sensible plan for improvement.
