David Dick

Conservatory Instructor

In His Studio:

David Dick teaches trombone, bass trombone, and euphonium with the Conservatory. Lessons with David cost $63 per hour. He is accepting students at this time. David will teach students at any age, though typically students start in grade 6 as physical size is a factor, and will teach any level of student. In David’s studio, students are not required to work towards exams, required to participate in recitals, and encouraged to participate in music festival. He teaches classical, jazz, and blues music. David requires students to supply their own trombone by first lesson (David is willing to chat with parents about what to get), and students must purchase their own music eventually with David’s advice. David requires students to practice regularly, and preferably to play every day. Typically David takes students from grade six to University, but likes a variety of students who are willing to work.
