Dr. Green's research on the tuba and its history and musical usage in Russia has received high accolades, and his dissertation "The History and Usage of the Tuba in Russia" was selected as a finalist for the 2016 Clifford Bevan Research Award.
Dr. Green is actively involved in the central Ohio music community, where he teaches low brass lessons, and has played with various ensembles. When not practicing, teaching, or researching, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Jillian, learning the Russian language, and studying the music, culture, and history of Russia.
I am happy to help you or your child to learn to play any low brass instrument, read music, or prepare for college auditions!
