Trombone Lessons in Rotterdam - Matteo Paggi

Ciao! I'm Matteo, an Italian trombone player and trombone teacher, based in Rotterdam. I giev trombone lessons to beginners and advanced. Are you new to the trombone or have you played in the past want to start playing again?  Do you play frequently and wish to polish your technique? Let's go!

Music Styles

I'll encourage you to learn different types of music. from classical music to Jazz, Latin, Rock, Salsa and popular music. I If you wish to develop your improvisation skills and learn more about harmony, composition and music theory, you came to the right person!

Trial Trombone Lesson

The trial lesson allows us to discuss your goals, musical styles you wish to explore and you get an mpression of my teaching style. If you are completely new to the trombone, there are NO requirements. Just book your trial lesson and try out the instrument at my place.


In Italia I gave trombone classes in 4 different schools of music. There I gained a lot of experience, by teaching children, who approached the trombone for the first time, as well as adults who played for some years already. If you want to take your music skills to a higher level, become a better musician and find inspiration to cultivate your passion, then my lessons are what you are looking for!

pBone Leightweight

A pBone trombone is strong and is definitely lightweight. It has a very good slide and the trombone positions are very accurate. The tone is also deceptively good so all in all the pbone is a very good buy for starters and children

Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced

I have a lot of fun ideas to learn music, but never compromise the quality and endeavour to build good music foundation.The lessons may cover:

  • ear training,
  • singing,
  • reading music,
  • buzzing,
  • embouchure,
  • breathing,
  • body posture,
  • improvisation.

I want you to feel good with your instrument and to approach the music in a relaxed way.

Modern tuition materials

Enjoy many fun and inspiring exercises to study any technical issue of the trombone. Among other teaching materials we use the excellent method of Arnold Jacobs.

Lesson at my Studio or at Your Place

I give the trombone lessons at my music studio in Schiedam. I also give daytime, lessons at my place in Charlois (Slinge metro stop). If preferred, it is always possible to have lessons at your place in Rotterdam and Amsterdam.
