Upon meeting a new student, my first step is to assess where their abilities, experience and interests are.  I may recognize they need extra focus on hand technique, posture or dynamic control, to name a few.  I always inquire if there is something specific the student wants to get out of the lessons, whether it be focusing on a particular style, band or drummer.  If they are open to anything, I begin by giving them a broad overview of styles, history of the instrument, different kinds of drums, etc.  From there, we hone in on technique, reading and transcription.  In addition to the technical aspect of music, which can be intimidating to the beginner (which I can fully relate to!), we do extensive listening, partly for enjoyment, partly for analysis. My goal is for all these things to help the student develop a deep understanding of music, the drumset and its role in many different styles, preparing them for a successful career as a professional musician.

As already stated, my approach stresses understanding a mastery of "the basics" of musical knowledge and instrument-specific knowledge and skills -while adapting to the individual strengths/weaknesses and interests... of the individual students. Among other things, my approach emphasizes empowering students by quickly and efficiently imparting essential and useful knowledge and "real skills" that enable students to know and demonstrate, at will, music knowledge and ability. My students tend to become knowledgeable and skilled rapidly, having a clear understanding of the basics of musical knowledge and instrument-specific skill, imparting confidence in their knowledge and ability, while providing them with the knowledge and skill(s) to solve musical problems and achieve musical goals.

For Guitar I feel that it is best for everyone to start out learning classical and then branch out to other styles. However,  I ,, as a teacher want to teach everything if I can , while at the same time really focusing on what the students goals are in learning to play and what music gets them excited about playing. So I will use standard guitar teaching materials such as studies from Sor and Giuliani , or Segovia scales , or certain method books by Hal Leonard , Scott Tennant etc...but each student is different and my approach is focused on tailoring everything to each student specifically. Some learn note reading and theory fast but have trouble with left hand fingering or right hand technique so we would focus more on the physical techniques while others may play very well already but understand  little  or nothing about theory.

I love watching my students embrace what they've learned and grow.  I am very intuitive and use this skill to serve each student independantly.  It is so empowering to watch my students' confidence grow as they learn. I encourage my students to set realistic deadlines for performance, audition, and recording times.  I help them find outlets for their skills and accompany them throughout the process.  Recently I was overjoyed to  find that one of my students booked a gig at his college, and is getting paid!  His face was beaming as he relayed this information:)

Instruments:

Reading music is essential. To me musicians who don't know how to read music are like people who speak without undertsanding the meaning of the words they say. I also focus on ear training and understanding the instrument naturally, being that I feel its best for the player to have a mulititude of approaches to their understanding of their craft. Books I use in my methods are Carmine Appice Realistic Rock, Rockin Bass volumes 1 and 2, Mel Bay's Killer Fills, and Buddy Rich Snare Drum Rudiments.

...Guitars Unlike electric guitars, acoustic guitars do not need to be amplified to be heard. However, many acoustic guitars do have the option of being amplified if needed. These are referred to as acoustic-electrics. The acoustic guitar is a much more precise and intricately designed instrument, and because of this, the price often greatly influences the sound and ease of use. A cheap, poorly designed electric guitar can be incredibly difficult for a new guitarist to play successfully, often a result of high action that makes the strings difficult and painful to press down.   While acoustic guitars do not necessitate an amplifier, there is still ...

How Music Theory Can Improve Your Songwriting

...you play the A above middle C (the middle C is the C note in the middle of the keyboard) on the piano, that note has a frequency of 440 Hz. Hz, which stands for hertz, means vibrations per second. So, when you play the A above middle C on the piano, you’re playing a note that vibrates 440 times per second. All that vibration is what creates the pitch you hear. Now here is where it gets a bit tricky. When you play A440, you’re not just hearing one note but actually many notes. This is called the overtone series. The most prominent ... 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. 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.
