I love teaching and seeing students progress in their skill. No student is like the next and I do my best to create an atmosphere for each student to get the most out of their time with me. I also make sure the understand how they should be practicing and the effective ways to practice. It is not as simple as saying, "Practice double strokes this week". The student needs to understand why they are learning the rudiment, tendencies of poor technique and how to monitor progress. I try my best to balance what the student wants to learn with what I believe is in their best interest to become a better player.

My teaching methods are completely based on the playing level of the student. Beginner trumpet students will start in any generic beginner trumpet book. Students who have a grasp of the basics will jump right into Arban or Clark studies. I focus on tone improvement, range extension, air control, accuracy, and articulation. Sometimes that just means playing whole notes for 15 minutes at a time! Every embouchure is different so every student needs a different set of studies. Beginner guitar students will go through the first Hal Leonard book before moving in a more specialized direction. We will take a string-by-string approach to the guitar while we also learn chords. More advanced students can provide suggestions on where they would like the lessons to go. If you want to play Fernando Sor classical pieces then we can do that. If you want to learn jazz chord structure we can do that, too! If you want to improve solo on some scales, we can, of course, DO THAT! Beginner drum students will start with the basics of a rock beat using a full kit. Marching fundamentals are never fun, but we will introduce them over time. Over time, beats become more complex. Fills are introduced. New kick drum patterns are mastered. For more advanced students we will learn how to play dynamically within a song. As we add more advanced patterns to your repertoire we will also discuss when to use them and how to use them. For bass guitar students I prefer to only take moderate to advanced students. I specialize in bass line composition using only a chord chart. I can teach advanced slap/pop techniques and when they should be used. A good understanding of the instrument is required. I will teach you how to apply scales and modes to your bass lines.

I like to understand a student on a musical level, thus letting their ability level and their drive push me in the direction most useful for the student's success. I encourage them by setting specified goals and show them how to attain them while guiding them through any necessary musical concepts they may meet along the way. I gain from my students' accomplishments a sense of pride, which makes me work just as hard for my students as they do for me. I love finding ways to inspire a student to want to learn and achieve more in their area of music. Nothing is more rewarding for me than seeing my students take on something challenging and learn it with a fervor to learn and take on more musical challenges.

On the first lesson, I seek to establish long-term goals based on the interest and skill level of the player. One of the first questions I ask is, "what song do you want to learn the drum part to?"  The most important thing about playing any instrument is to have fun, so I custom-tailor every lesson in order to see the most enjoyment on my students' faces as possible.  While I have hundreds of pages of exercises I have written from which to pull, I will usually hold off even opening my book until I feel the student is ready to have fun with it.  Once a student dives into learning a song, the exercises in my book as well as my experience and a metronome will help polish the student's timing and technique, opening doors to other songs and more challenging rhythms.

Education should be as individual as each student! I try to adapt my personality and teaching style to best fit my students. Each lesson or clinic will demand something different of me, just like each topic will. Positive reinforcement has always been my go-to. Playing music in front of one person (or 50) can be a soul bearing experience, and I've found that encouragement can be everything!

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.
