Over twenty years of playing all instruments has taught me there is not one specific way to teach music, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in. Together we will choose short term and long term goals, and I regularly learn music my students love, and then use those songs to demonstrate theoretical principles, instead of using music that comes out of some book.

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.

I am passionate about continuing the education of music in our society. In spring 2014 I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BM. I’ve performed with churches, college Rock and Jazz ensembles, and recorded for several local groups. I enjoy Jazz, Latin, and World music. Students will find that I am a delightful person to be with. The joy of teaching, for me, is watching students grow in their abilities.

My teaching style can be summed up in one word: POSITIVITY! I have found encouragement and celebrating even the smallest of accomplishments is far more effective than a heavy handed approach ala whiplash. That is the way to spur on a students desire to stick with it and progress and produces a hunger to learn more. It is a combination of fun and skill and whatever inspires my students to find their own voice and style while learning about MUSIC not just an instrument. Most of my kids develop a sense of focus and attention to learning when we meet that provides success in other areas of life.

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.
