General Method In General, I believe the three foundations of a student's success are 1. Proper Technique (scales, rudiments, etc) 2. Repertoire (memorized pieces) 3. Creativity (improvising, learning by ear) Parents: You MUST encouraging you child to practice or "play". When they practice, be there, let them know you love hearing them play. I can not stress enough how crucial parent participation is. The student needs to practice at least 20 minutes a day up to several hours depending on the age and goal of the student. For instance a 5 year old might only be able to do 2 ten minute sessions a day whereas a student auditioning for a touring group may need several hours a day. Piano: - John Thompson books and Bastien are my preferred piano books. - Student will also need an assignment book and a metronome. - Eventually the student will need Alfred's Complete book of Scales also. Drums/Percussion: - Alfred's Snare Book 1 - Alfred's Drumset Method - Alfred's Drum book for Kids (younger age) - Sticks - Pad - Metronome -music stand Advanced Books: Piano - Hanon -Czerny Veolicty Drums - New Breed - Art of Bop Drumming - Funkifying the Clave - Adnaced Funk Drumming Jazz: - Abersold - The Jazz Piano Book (Levin) - Real Book 1, 2, 3

Over the years I've gained alot of experience in what makes a great preformer a great preformer. Studying at Montgomery College and being part of the Latin and Jazz emsembles taught me that music in more of a language and any. Everything that is played is interpreted by the listener as a true of false statement. Much like a typicall dialog with another human being, we interact on more than one level. There is elements of pitch, body language and speed of speech also. The same applies to music. There is a jazz saying; "Play what you mean, and mean what you play."

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.
