My dad employed a very competitive method on me and my siblings when teaching us piano.  And although it worked on me, it caused my brother to quit piano.  I have learned through my teaching experience that some students need a push and some need a pull.  Every student is unique.  I admit that I am the most successful with a competitive method.  The "I bet you can't play that right" method.  I find that it drives the student to learn the instrument for himself.  And as the student wants, more and more, to prove that he can "beat the instrument," he begins to work at it in ways that I can't teach.  Learning an instrument is more than showing up for one hour each week.  Practice is everything.  I feel that my methodology encourages students to take on the instrument head on and learn how to solve problems on their own so that they can practice and improve more quickly.   That being said, I am capable of kindness and I am very perceptive to when a student needs a "good job," rather than a "try harder."

My path as an educator began during my time studying history and philosphy in New Orleans, LA. I was playing live music almost six nights a week, and started helping out as an assistent at Tipitina's Sunday Workshop for young musicians. There I helped and watched the great Johnny Vidacovich teach young aspiring musicians the art of playing in an ensemble. While at Berklee College of Music I have helped teach in classrooms and clinics alongside many of the world's greatest musicians, including John Patitucci, Steve Bailey, Joanne Brackeen, Vadim Neselovsky, Carol Robbins, and Alain Mallet.

 A class once or twice a week is beneficial I believe for keeping up the continuity of practice. We will work on first the guitar as an instrument, basic chords, chord structures, some basic scales, and over time making chord changes happen as the minds memory/muscle memory for remembering chords grows!  This is crucial for making the basic song happen. I encourage my students to find a handful of songs they really enjoy and may want to learn, so that we can learn them piece by peice.

I began teaching in 2009 while I was attending the University of Massachusetts Lowell. While I was a student I began to study with some truly great musicians who really helped me realize my potential. I got some jobs teaching area high school drumlines and marching bands and really enjoyed the experience. When I first started playing I was mostly interested in marching bands and drumlines. I marched multiple seasons with the Boston University Winter Percussion Ensemble while in high school and then held the center snare position with the Spartans Drum and Bugle Corps.. It was these experiences that prepared me to play for the New England Patriots Drumline during the 2015 season in front of sold out stadium crowds.

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.
