Voice methodology is to learn how to make the correct sound on the flow of breath.  One must learn how to breath whether singing loudly or softly in whichever style or genre the student wants to learn. String playing can be hard on the ears when beginning, therefore it is important to develop a good bow technique in order to make the best sound possible.  I use the All For Strings method books. Begining piano is fun and I teach out of the book as well as how to learn the beginnings of improvising.  I use the Alfred Piano Library books for the children and adult players.

While I do not subscribe to any particular school of study, such as Suzuki or Schrimer's, I am a firm beleiver in starting off with my students at their current level and pace.  Once I have assessed a students's personal ability, there is discussion of what goals/objectives the student wshes to achieve.  Once we have decided what direction the student wishes to take with their instrument, I typically use a variety of etudes, chamber, and solo music to offer both a strong technical base along with a freedom of choice.  Above all, it is important that the music/techniques provided are at the student's level, and work to move the student toward their ultimate goals in the instrument.

I have been teaching both in the public school system and privately over the last four years.  Through teaching both string and wind instrumental lessons and ensembles during my time in the Flemington and Hopewell school districts, as well as my own private students I have found that trying to find a connection to the love of music I have and an interest the student already has there is a pathway through practice, and dedication to creating some really wonderful moments for that student.

For very beginning students, I usually start with the Suzuki Method Books and All For Strings Comprehensive String Method Books. I usually encourage my students to read music, but for the youngest students I start by playing with them and having them copy me. Once they are ready, I start teaching them basic music theory that will help them read music. For intermediate to advanced players I institute a routine of practicing scales and etudes as well as a solo piece that is appropriate for their ability level. I try to keep lessons fun and always encourage my students to bring me any music they are interested in learning. I am mainly a classical musician, and therefore will mainly teach a classical style, but I also enjoy playing other genres of music and will try to incorporate some fun alternatives to classical in our lessons.

Instruments:

As a teacher, I like to instill as much passion for music as I possible can. I enjoy seeing students develop their love of music as well as their ability to play their specific instrument. Therefore I like to make lessons as fun as possible but also grounded in a seriousness about music and a respect for the process of music making. I think that students advance fastest when they gain a curiosity for their instrument as well as the music that that play on it. Therefore, I try to route my teaching in a combination of encouragement and knowledge.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
