As much as possible, I usually try to make custom lesson plans for each student. For beginning guitar or ukulele students I will usually begin by teaching them to play a familiar song using only a couple chords. This gives them something tangible to work toward right from the beginning. We can then add more chords and more challenging songs as we go, as well as learning to play scales and melodies, etc. For beginning drummers I will often take a basic rock beat and break it apart, focusing on one piece at a time and then putting it back together. This gives us a foundation to work from to which we can later add rudiments, etc. For more advanced students I like to first look back and see if there are any techniques or skills that they have neglected as they progressed. Once we have filled in any such holes, we can move forward, working on modes, poly-rhythms, or whatever seems appropriate for the individual student.

  Each and every student who takes lessons from me is an individual. My focus in the beginning is on technique for sticks/hands/mallets. I also focus on body mechanics to help students be comfortable when playing the percussion instrument. When it comes to learning grooves and soloing concepts, I introduce students to a variety of styles. If a student shows interest in one, that particular style will be developed. It is my belief that students should be proficient in as many styles as possible. Reading music is important, and it part of my program. In each lesson I introduce a musical term and or concept while encouraging students to practice and improve knowledge on what already has been learned.

My first expirence teaching started back in high school with working indivisually and in group sessions with the drumline. I worked with all sections of the battery (quads, quints, bass drum, snare) on perfecting technique, levels between sections, theory, ect.  After High School, and part way through college, I started giving indivisual lessons on the drum set studying a vast variety of genres and techniques

Guitar- From playing melodies, fingerpicking, strumming chords, reading music, and tuning your instrument- your instructor will guide you step by step.  Students use the Hal Leonard method book to start, which is a great book for introducing basic guitar techniques and methods.  As the student advances more materials and techniques will be supplied to the student, or continue using the method books.  Styles taught are rock, blues, metal, folk, classical, jazz, country and everything in-between.  Drums:  For students who want to ROCK!  Drumming is a perfect way to get active and distracted students engaged and interested in the world of music.  Students will learn basic rock/dance/jazz beats, marching cadences, musical symbols and notation, solos, and much more.  The book used, Basic Drumming by Joel Rothman, is a wonderful book that will last for 3 years of lessons and beyond.  Your teacher will take you from beginner, to intermediate, to advanced, and help you learn the style and genre of music you like best. Ukulele: Ukulele is a perfect instrument for children who are eager to explore the world of music but might not be ready for a larger instrument, or for those who love the unique sound it creates.  The ukulele has recently become quite popular and is featured in many styles of new music.  Students will use Hal Leonard method book as well as other music supplied by the instructor.  The "Uke" helps students learn coordination, rhythm, and melody- all while having fun and learning songs.

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.
