For all my students, including vocalists, I always try to keep things enjoyable with mixed repertoire assignments. Even at beginner levels, I've seen some of my students cover the songs thattheywant to learn. I didn't learn to sing and play the piano by being forced to play songs I didn't enjoy as a listener. The key is finding music that is both challengingto create andfun as heck to perform. Specifically as a vocal teacher and overall vocal performance enthusiast, I rely on contemporary ear training as the key method to my teaching style. Read More

I do, however, allow diversion and conversation in lessons. If there is a song that may explain the musical idea, we will stop and listen. If a young child wants to relay a story from school they thought of because of our practice, I will stop and listen. I may also speak in depth about musical history, style, or even the psychology of music. I think this combination draws students into the mind of a musician, and gets them to start thinking like one.

Instruments: Guitar

By far the greatest feeling as a teacher is that moment when the "lightbulb" turns on for the student and the idea clicks. It's an amazing feeling and to see growth happening is such a privelege. I remember the excitement of learning a new song when someone would show me, or when I'd get a challenging part. Honestly, there's not a feeling on earth as gratifying for me as in the moment, knowing that I used to not be able to do this, and now I can do it. Read More

I teach out of instructional books, notably books by Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, and Alfred. Sometimes, I use sheet music print outs, and draft up my own exercises.  I go back in forth in a non-conventional manner, adapting accordingly to the student's needs.  I like to incorporate exercises and warm ups to improve and enchance technique.  I also teach songs that the student would like to learn.  I'm very patient and rarely rigid in my approach, although I do stick to a general routine that allows a focused approach to learning.

It is important to be musically ambidextrous: chances are, in your band's rehearsal, your other musicians will share ideas using tabs, not traditional notation. You can be the best note-reader on planet Earth, but if you cannot communicate a language others use, you find yourself stuck. I always incorporate music that my student likes to listen to, and frequently request Spotify or iTunes playlists for reference. I try to adapt pop songs into my curriculum (from their playlists) to teach chord theory and songwriting structure, and encourage students to write their own music. Read More

Jazz Scales: The Bebop Scale

...downbeats in the first measure, but then you hit all the wrong chord tones on downbeats in the second measure. The bebop scale provides the solution to this problem. You just add one extra note to each respective scale and then you can play it forever and ever without ever hitting a ‘wrong’ note on a downbeat.       The dominant bebop scale (usually just referred to as the bebop scale) adds a chromatic passing tone between the b7 and the 1. The major bebop scale (less commonly taught, but still frequently used) adds a chromatic passing tone between chord tones 5 and 6.... Read More

...musicians new to playing the guitar, but don’t fret! We’re going to walk you through it with some helpful tips and exercises.   Alternate Picking   Before we talk about how to read strumming patterns or rhythmic notation, we absolutely have to talk alternate picking. Alternate picking is when you alternate between picking up and down. When you play a warmup or scale, you naturally begin by picking straight down, but many beginning guitar students pick back up while returning to the down position again. Not alternatively picking isn’t just bad technique, it’s a waste of energy. The faster you employ a smart ... Read More

...that you put it in a case resting in a dry room. I’ve seen so many young students and their parents show up to a guitar lesson with a beautiful new guitar only to find out that they didn’t buy a case. Guitars are incredibly fragile instruments, and they need to be stored in hard or soft cases when they aren’t being played. Stray guitars lying around without cases are at risk of being broken or destroyed by household pets, young children, or clumsy adults.   It doesn’t take much time, energy, or discipline to keep a guitar in its case or ...
