I am a 24 year old bassist who enjoys sharing my musical passion with others. I have studied the electric bass and the upright bass while attending Whitman college, focusing mostly on Jazz. I currently live in Brooklyn and play with my band, The Dogs. I've played on six records over the last two years including one that was named the fourth best free album of 2011.

As stated above, I believe in a foundational understanding of music and music literacy.  I've witnessed, first hand, the handicap that people without basic formal knowledge of music have in the professional world.  To this end, as we look at songs, techniques, etc., I like to continue to remind the student that everything we do incorporates the basic knowledge that we've acquired.   Not all students are looking to develop advanced skills.  Some are only interested in gaining enough skill to enjoy recreational playing.  Also, everyone learns a little differently and, although I'm not a formally trained educator, I've learned a lot about being present and aware of the needs of each individual in order to facilitate their musical goals.   Whatever the desire or goal, I am committed to providing the necessary tools to help reach it and make learning music fun and interesting.

Understanding the desire of each student is important. What each student wants to do with thier instrument/music can be a very unique experience. Some players want to be able to play chords while they sing, some want to play solos, some want to write songs. Having student talk musically is important to me as a teacher so each lesson envolves me and the student talking about music in a musical way. Weather we are talking about counting the beats, beats in a measure, chord changes, the actual chord being played. Identifying what we are doing is something we consatnly challenge ourselves on.

I started teaching lessons when I was 16 working for a music day camp in Bellevue, WA. I loved working with young kids who liked rock music and had heart when it came to their love of music. My mom has been a teacher my whole life, and I believe in people passing on knowledge and experiences to each other to help people grow and discover the world.  I think my strongsuit would be in teaching players closer to the beginning of their playing journey, as that was the most formative time for me and when I had the strongest teacher influence in my life. Most of my philosphies would best work from a beginning player's perspective.  Having self-taught myself many things I think I can relate to player's who are similarly self-taught, play more intuitively, and haven't had a technical or theoretical background to a huge degree. I think I can help a lot with getting people out of the boxes they create for themselves in playing as that's my biggest goal as of late. And I definitely see music as being a hugely sacred and spiritual act that humans have been doing forever, and not just something that's taught in schools and done to win competitions or have careers, so I can relate to people's emotional connections to music and explore that side as well. Being able to express musically is a joy, and so my approach is to foster an engagement with it, and focus on your unique relationship with music, rather than forcing people to follow obligatory structures. More advanced players--my specialty area is improvisation and I think I could be of help for those interested in this area!

Lessons will start with an assessment of what the student wants to learn and what their goals are. From there, we will determine the proper approach to meet those goals while keeping things fun and interesting. Once a particular skill level and interest are established I will develop an individualized lesson plan for the student to fit their wants and needs. The goal with beginning students is to get them up and running right away with chords and melodies, learning the fundamentals while being able to play their favorite songs. For all students I like to extensively focus on knowledge of the fret board and the many possible approaches to mastering it, as well as looking at creative practice methods and daily routines. A musician’s method of practicing can greatly determine their rate of improvement. For more intermediate and advanced students the general focus will shift to topics such as ear training, rhythm, music theory and music notation (if desired) and, their application to the guitar.

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.
