I like to work based on what each student needs. I encourage the student to take his or her own interests into account on a regular basis. I also use a basic foundation to determine what the student needs to attack first, such as technique, harmony, ear trinning and scales. Of course, finger, pick, and slap styles are included. All kind of styles & genres are welcome, from the more basic to the more complex genres.

Regardless of their ages, I always attempt to establish what a student's interests in music are as well as their background and present faculties if applicable. From there, I attempt to develop an understanding of musical fundamentals (pitch, rhythm, timbre, dynamics) as they apply to their interests. It is crucial in my opinion to connect these essential elements of music to the context of a student's musical world. I have several books that I use regularly for examples and also, I write individual exercises for more specific issues with a student's technique and approach. Simply put, the fundamentals apply universally and thus, there is no reasons to demonstrate them as separate from a student's personal goals/interests.

For beginning students I focus a lot on rhythm and ear training to build the greatest foundation of being able to hear if timing is right or wrong. I too use Hal Leonard's Essential Elements at the begginning but will have students write down techniques and excercises so they memorize them. Once the student is at an intermediate level and can play whole songs with more than two techniques they become eligible for recital performance. In the intermediate level students learn more styles for songs and jazz harmony will be introduced. At the advanced level my students can play in a band and both bring in material to learn as well as learning recorded solos. Students will learn advanced techniqes, soloing and how to play when recording. Lesson recordings will be provided to critque students progress.

Basic Saxophone Maintenance: Caring for Your Instrument

...solid, so that’s not as likely). This is an easy fix, but needs to be done by a woodwind repairman. The pads just need to be reseated (put back into place, so they seal properly).This requires a hot flame though, something your repairman will be familiar with. To properly diagnose this problem, you can ask your teacher to show you how to use a leak-light. If all notes below G aren’t working properly, then there is probably a problem with a screw on the G# key. This can also be diagnosed using a leak-light. Your teacher can most likely fix this problem,... Read More

Types of Clarinets

...eighteenth century, there have been numerous changes made, including extra and rearranged keys (including a register key), modern leather pads, etc. Over time, clarinets phased in and out, some becoming rare or completely obsolete today.   Most modern clarinets are either Bb or Eb transposing instruments. This means that, on a Bb instrument, when you play C, the note sounding is a concert Bb. Likewise, on an Eb instrument, when you play C, the note sounding is a concert Eb. The exception is the A clarinet. It’s still used in orchestras today. On an A clarinet, when you play C, the note sounding ... Read More

...later post- while the bass drum simply plays ‘four on the floor’ (unlike a true bossa nova, which has a more complicated pattern in the bass).

(hint: it’s an ode to a star of early horror film, a pretty unlikely place for a Brazilian beat)   So as you can see, there is a lot still to work with, even within the limited framework of basic rock drum beats we’ve been using so far.

...“do” in solfege), you can then identify any other notes by their interval to the root note. For example, if a piece of music is in the key of C Major and the first three notes are C E G then the solfege would be do mi sol. If the piece is in D Major, however, then D F# A would correspond to do mi sol. The intervals are exactly the same, the pitches are just a step up in the key of D Major. This is a skill most professional musicians use extensively and helps them quickly sightread any music put ... 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.
