I am a huge music enthusiast, and love almost every discipline from classical to pop. I am primarily a classical pianist, and I have been taking lessons for about 10 years from an adjunct professor at Tulane University, but I also enjoy playing jazz/blues and pop. In addition to playing, I compose many of my own piano pieces, as well as create arrangements of popular songs and produce music electronically. My musical education at Tulane University includes music theory, advanced harmony, jazz theory, choir, and music digital sound processing.

I can't stress enough how music is supposed to be fun!  It is a healthy outlet which teaches kids and adults alike the joy of interation with a group of people and can carry out in all kinds of aspects in life.  Learning does not have to be boring and with music it is one of the most sacred and treasured things that we have as humans.  I focus on trying to inspire a student and have them look forward to their next lesson.

I have taught on and off for the last 6 years. I currently teach at a private studio a couple days a week in the afternoon since last August. Prior to August I have had students on and off in my home or at their homes. My experience has taught me that your best teacher is yourself. I can show you my methods, teach you theory and technique, but what is comes down to is find ways to stimulate yourself with practing. I suggest trying to play music with as many different type of instrumentalist as possible.

I've been working with students since I was in high school (I'm now 30) and enjoy teaching all styles, levels and disciplines.  I specialize in many forms of Jazz, Swing and Bebop with a vast knowledge of Blues, Rock, Punk, and Popular Songs besides my classical singing repertoire.  My teaching style fits the student and will change depending on your wants and needs.  Warm ups and exercises are always encouraged as well as memorization and daily practice.  I'm always looking for to share the joy of music with new students.

Instruments:

I begin with the fundamentals of music theory that you will need to begin playing your instrument, and then I like to get straight into learning songs as quickly as possible. The student may choose what songs to learn (recommended) or I can make suggestions. You will learn a range of skills including tuning, instrument care, song struture, chords, soloing, and MUCH MORE. My goal is for you not just to learn to play certain notes or chords, but also understand why that note or chord fits where it does. This knowledge will be key to your success in composition and collaboration.

Jazz Scales: The Altered Scale

...a few examples for you to practice in twelve keys:     The first two are pretty self-explanatory. The first example is just the scale in groups of four. The second example is the scale in descending triads.   The third example is based on a diminished scale exercise we went over a couple of articles back. It’s a little more complicated because there aren’t an even number of notes. Also, it has to be practiced in twelve keys since the altered scale isn’t a symmetric scale. I think it sounds pretty cool, though. It’s one that I use often when improvising. Application to Improvisation ... Read More

Suzuki Practice: A Daily Event

...handle long sessions – so do something shorter. Have a brand-new beginner? Try five minute sessions. As the child grows in her ability, you can add more minutes to each Suzuki practice session. Take it gradually – time is on your side. Your child is young, and is still growing. Sometimes, the practice session just won’t go well. There are very few prodigies who beg to practice at a young age. Face it, the ‘newness’ of music will wear off, and your child will dodge it, just like brushing teeth or feeding the cat. And sometimes, it just won’t be a good time to practice. ... Read More

The Kodály Approach – More than Hand Signs

...his friend Béla Bartók were ethnomusicologists as well as composers and educators. Ethnomusicology is the cultural context of music. The cultural context Kodály and Bartók were interested in, was their own “mother tongue”, Hungarian. As they collected songs from near and far, they were able to analyze and categorize them by rhythmic and melodic elements (among others). This became the basis for Kodály’s pedagogical sequence. A Kodály sequence in America functions much the same way. The folk song repertoire dictates the pedagogical spiral curriculum, beginning with the simple and building toward the complex. To give it life, think of this. ... Read More

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.
